When asked why the focus on women, Baker responds – ‘If you start with women, you change the family. If you change the family, you change the community. If you change the community, you change the world.’
Having dealt with her own health issues and seasons of bad habits, Baker shares that since making the change to holistic health she has no more health ailments and her life isn’t just good, ‘…but awesome!’
With a goal of becoming a world healer, Baker is committed to spreading messages of holistic health and healing one woman at a time.
Goddess Body Wellness is dedicated to holistic health with a focus on women’s health and well-being. Product offerings include detoxification and cleansing programs, nutritional consultations and movement (exercise) consultations.
Her primary program, Goddess Body Detox® system, is offered in the form of seven, fourteen or twenty-one day sessions. These programs are designed to rid your body of toxins that over time accumulate in the body causing dis-ease. Based on custom 100% natural herbal tea blends, these substances are designed to remove the toxins from your body at the cellular level.
Nutritional consultations are one component of the program. These sessions take place at your local grocery store while Baker shows you how to choose food wisely and read labels. Meal composition is also an integral part of the nutritional consultation.
“Many people believe you have to consume meat in order to acquire protein. This is not true. There is protein present in dark leafy vegetables, beans and even avocado. I teach you how to choose live foods, which possess healing properties that meat will not render.”
Goddess Body Movement® (fitness) consultations consist of group workshops or individualized sessions offered three times per week. Movement consists of dance, low impact aerobics and strength training without the use of weights.
