So, who is Yolanda Rivera? I am a woman, who in the year 2001, suffered the first of two strokes. At 37 years old, I found myself bedridden, losing my career, depressed, and ballooning to 190 pounds as I was pumping my body full of pharmaceuticals; Up to 12 pills a day!
I learned that to build a new life, I had to let go of everything I knew. Nothing like lying in a hospital bed for 21 days without a formal diagnosis!
They did not want to pronounce the word, “stroke.”
I had lost the use of the left side of my body. I couldn’t do anything by myself (and that’s very hard when you have a Type-A personality).
I couldn’t do what I was used to. I had to learn to surrender. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. This world will not stop just to cuddle you and make your boo-boo go away!
I not only had physical difficulties, but I also had terrible memory problems. My doctor told me that I needed to live without stress. What? How do you live without stress?? Does anybody know?? I didn’t!
But I had to learn, and I have!
By the year 2021, I became drug-free of pharmaceuticals, and the once-faulty veins in my brain gave me 100% blood flow!
So, I decided to help everyone I knew that suffered from similar issues such as, Type 2 Diabetes, Depression, sleep problems, and weight problems. These issues typically lead to a stroke, many people suffer from a combination of these!
My goals for you are simple to help you put a plan together to:
1. Find your appropriate weight goals
2. Battle Type 2 Diabetes and the many forms of Insulin Resistance
3. Sleep well and boost your energy
4. Relieve and manage stress

I am not a doctor. I am however, certified in Nutrition, and I have made it my life’s mission to guide and mentor friends and family members in their journey to a quality and healthier lifestyle. I can guide you as well!
