The Journey from Energy Struggles to Healthy Bod Co: Meet Esther, Our Founder

Hello, and thank you for joining us!

I'm Esther, the founder of Healthy Bod Co. Have you ever wondered about the story behind this brand and what inspired its creation? Well, my journey revolves around one significant health struggle: my battle with physical energy.

As a mother of one, I've faced immense challenges when it comes to maintaining energy and vitality in my life. In October 2016, I found myself grappling with a viral infection that left me practically devoid of any energy to function. At that time, I was living in Melbourne, and my ailment began as a severe flu or cold. COVID-19 wasn't a prevalent concern then, so we can rule that out.

However, my condition deteriorated rapidly. My energy levels plummeted to the point where I couldn't even manage a trip to the shops or be outside for more than 10 minutes at a stretch. I felt utterly drained, and it became clear that something was seriously amiss.

The situation became so dire that I eventually had to move out of my shared accommodation and back to my parents' home. My mother took on the task of cooking for me every day, and although I was slowly regaining some semblance of normalcy, it felt like a painfully slow process.

After enduring about six months of illness, I decided to experiment with detox foot patches. To my astonishment, I noticed a remarkable change. My recovery accelerated, and I began to regain a semblance of my former self. I even took on a contract job and managed to work 9-10 hour days! It was a transformative experience, and it highlighted the paramount importance of energy in one's life, physical well-being, and the pursuit of feeling your absolute best.



But my journey didn't end there. This experience also underscored the significance of self-care, a facet I hadn't truly appreciated until then. I've always been a proponent of supplements and natural therapies, and I still recommend them for added support. The detox patches are not intended to replace essential nutrients that you can obtain from a well-rounded diet or over-the-counter vitamins. Rather, they excel in clearing any internal obstacles that might be impeding your energy.

In my case, it was the viral infection and whatever toxins it released into my body that robbed me of my vitality. I wouldn't wish such an experience on anyone; it leaves you feeling despondent and uncertain about ever reclaiming a normal life.

In today's world, more than ever, we are exposed to an abundance of toxins in our environment, whether in the air we breathe or the foods we consume.

Fast forward to today, and I am an active mother with an abundance of energy. I juggle the responsibilities of caring for my almost 4-year-old, my partner, our two dogs, running a business, and managing our household. I even find time for 4 am mornings on occasion! My passion for our brand and the products we create stems from my firm belief in their efficacy. I've walked the path, and I know the power of these ingredients.

Rest assured, I come from a scientific background, and my approach ensures that we deliver one of the finest products on the market, both in terms of ingredients and functionality. I wouldn't sell you something I wouldn't personally use.

If you have questions or want to get in touch, I'm here for you.

With love and kindness, Esther
