how I got here
I am Maureen (Moe) Medeiros and I founded Moeganics because I believe in the healing power of nutritious whole foods (unpackaged and unprocessed) to prevent and cure illness with a focus on your bio-individuality. Whether you want to focus on a health issue, lose weight, improve your sleep, increase your energy or all four and more, Moeganics will create a unique eating and lifestyle plan for you based on your unique body chemistry.
My journey began when I was working (which has been forever) in Boston and fueling my day with processed and fast foods. My mornings began with flavored coffee with half & half and splenda (at least two and sometimes four cups all before noon) along with either a bagel and cream cheese, a muffin, or a breakfast sandwich. I looked forward to my deli sandwich lunch with chips, diet coke, and a cookie or brownie for dessert. Since one of the most popular coffee stands on the planet is on just about on every corner in Boston I would get in that long 3:00pm line for my afternoon pick-me-up – a double shot with skim milk and always with the pumpkin bread, lemon loaf, or ginger bread. And then DING! 5:00pm – time for cocktails and appetizers! I would be remise if I did not mention my relationship with my two favorite men, Ben and Jerry.
Then something happened that changed my life…
I turned 50. Arthritis, menopause, and the scary realization of hereditary, age, and lifestyle related risk factors including diabetes, heart disease, stroke, blood clots and breast cancer. I have been studying and researching these diseases for six years and have since been living a holistic organic lifestyle.
I have an ongoing hunger for educating myself about and incorporating Integrative Health modalities into my life including acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, meditation, reiki, whole food supplements and yoga. I am also a certified Usui Reiki Practitioner.
My passion for learning about the healing properties of food earned me a scholarship to the world-renowned Institute for Integrative Nutrition® in NYC to study over 100-dietary theories, using food as medicine, and a Certificate in Integrative Health Coaching.
I studied under the direction of Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd, and from a long list of Holistic medical professionals including Christiane Northrup, MD, – Dr. Andrew Weil – Lisa Rankin, MD – Deepak Chopra, MD – Dr. Frank Lipman – Joel Furman, MD – and Dr. Bernie Siegel to name a few.
I want to share everything I have learned with you including how to cook delicious, healthy, nutritious meals, and how to make healthy choices when dining out.
I am a caring, thoughtful mentor and wellness authority who will help you feel your best through nutrition and lifestyle changes. Rather than proposing a single way of eating or exercising I will create and individualize a wellness program for you so you can live a life you love.
Your relationships, career, physical activity and spirituality are as significant as the food you eat. I understand this. Stress and environmental factors including toxic relationships can and do manifest illnesses including skin disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), high blood pressure, exhaustion and sleeplessness. When our life is in balance we see improved overall health and reversal of many diseases.
I will give you clarity, strength, courage, and motivation to take positive action as we journey to a holistic approach while supporting you as a whole person.
Good Health and Happiness is your birthright.
