Manifesto

I am a Foot Nerd

I take full responsibility for my health and find purpose in helping others follow my lead. Prioritizing my health is something I hold as a personal core value and by doing so, I enable myself to then help others. I have commited to a lifelong journey of personal growth and only share with others what I personally practice daily. I vow to be the example by leading with my behaviour and am open minded to perspectives different from my own. I have adopted a student’s mindset in all areas of my life and am open to feedback from anyone who I encounter. I know that in order to help others I must first create alignment in my own life.

I practice health by sharing my experience and implement empathic accountability when working with others. My primary modality is empowerment through lifestyle education. I’m open minded and use the scientific method as my guide. I see value in ancestral wisdom and personal experience and vow to apply critical thinking and a rigorous process of inquiry when determining truth.

When helping others, I focus on the human, not simply their problems. I believe the human body has everything it requires for health if we provide the right environment for it to flourish. I refuse to acknowledge myself as a expert who “fixes” people, and instead view my role as a guide who helps people become ready and able to change.

I meet others where they are and always remember where I started. I don’t adhere to social norms when those norms become unhealthy, I have the courage to do what is right, I’m generous in listening to those who disagree with me and I recognize the impermanence of knowledge. I change my mind when better information presents itself and I always treat others with love, compassion, and respect.

I am a Foot Nerd and I’m going to change the world by leading with myself and blazing a trail for others to follow.
