Hi! I’m Maureen Lake and I help women whose stress and overwhelm has left them with a diagnosis of prediabetes/type 2, thyroid problems, or adrenal issues. By guiding my clients through the H.E.A.R.T Method, they transform their health by living life with new found strength and energy. 

Hello, and Welcome!

I understand what you’re going through…diabetes is a disease you may have for the rest of your life. You change the way you eat, you’ve tried various medications and wonder why your blood sugars are still elevated. You feel angry, defeated and are faced daily with decisions that will impact your life.

I’m often asked, “Why are you so passionate about working with people with who have diabetes?”

Afterall, I don’t have diabetes and I work hard so I don’t end up with it too. You see, my mother died from complications related to this disease. I watched her suffer for years, cared for her at the end and saw first hand what this disease will do to your body and mind.

Now, my husband has type 2. He looks fantastic, you would never know he has this disease. It crept up slowly over the years and even though he had warnings from his doctor he didn’t take it very seriously – until he crossed the threshold…

So, yes. I have first-hand knowledge of diabetes. I get my fasting blood sugar level tested every year because I don’t want to cross into the danger zone. I’ve changed eating habits for my entire family and follow manifestation techniques that have changed the trajectory for everyone.

I have three fabulous children that face a genetic risk. I wish this disease on no one. But, I also know there are many proactive tools available to kick this to the curb – and I’m determined to get the word out to anyone who will listen ❤ Thank you for stopping by!

.

Currently, I support amazing women who are faced with prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, adrenal & thyroid problems. We work together to create a plan based on my HEART method ❤

.

I’m also a featured blogger at Thrive Global, The Huffington Post, Savana East and more. I have a book on Amazon called Being Happy Raising Happy. It’s currently being published by an NYC publishing house and will be in bookstores April 2018!

My Journey

.

I wish I could tell you that my health journey was swift and sudden, but it wasn’t.

.

My transformation was a learning process and a road to self-discovery and lots of learning and gut intuition.

.

Having spent a big part of my life eating, not eating, having daily headaches, unexplained allergies, stress, and miscarriages it didn’t take long for me to understand the consequences of stress and adrenal fatigue. I need a healthy change, and I needed it now.
