Meet our next Magnificent Monday feature: Jasmine Madson (instagram @jnmads) is a Pilates instructor, integrative nutrition coach, and sustainable materials specialist. Her plant-centric, food-as-medicine approach to eating is as nourishing as it is beautiful, and she’s known for sharing the why behind everything she puts on her plate. We can’t decide whether she should write a book on clean eating, green beauty, healthy materials, or exercise, but have a feeling she might soon write one on all four.
Q: What’s your mantra for 2018?
A: I think it’s one word: PAUSE.
Q: What project are you working on that you’re excited about?
A: 2018 at its core is a personal wellness project. After years of chronic illness, it became clear that I needed to stop working. It was either my paycheck or my life. I’ve always poured myself into my work, and leaving a role very meaningful to me was difficult. Chronic Lyme and the Epstein-Barr Virus are at the root of symptoms that have devastated my existence, and I’ve started a series of treatments using intravenous ultraviolet light to heal my body from the inside out.
In the coming months I’ll be launching a website to share my story. These illnesses are so prevalent, yet most aren’t aware of functional medicine’s approach to restoring health.
A UV IV? That’s not your everyday RX, but its healing potential is so much more effective than what conventional medicine can offer.
Q: What does your self-care routine look like and what would you like it to look like this year?
A: More laughter over matcha with friends. Restoring my ability to sleep. Loving my body in its current state rather than longing for the state I want it to return to. And eliminating as much plastic as I can, as chemicals in plastic are now in our bloodstreams and radically damaging our bodies, not just polluting the oceans.
Q: How do you incorporate Omica into your daily routine & what recipe are you excited to make in 2018?
A: I begin my days with a nourishing nut milk latte, blending tonic herbs, matcha or other teas, and ALWAYS three drops of Omica liquid stevia. It’s the BEST. I’ve got quite a few baking ideas up my sleeve, but might wait to unveil them once my website is up — something to look forward to!
