About Izabela Misiuk 

Izabela Misiuk is a Shanghai-based Certified Primal Health Coach, a Yogi, a Wellness Blogger, and the Founder of www.thriveinshanghai.com. Through her blog, Elizabeth provides her colleagues, clients, and readers with the information and tools to help them live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

This September, Elizabeth started a degree in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology to learn more scientifically validated approaches for better enhancing human health and wellness in all areas of life. 

Three years ago, Elizabeth decided to change her diet, and transitioned from eating high-carb and highly processed meals to going Primal and eating whole foods. Plagued by constant migraines, digestive upsets, insomnia, colds, low energy levels, and a lack of concentration, Elizabeth knew she had to make a change. Since making the transition to primal eating, Elizabeth has found that she's been able to nourish her body in all the right ways. As a result of her healthy journey, Izabela restored her insulin sensitivity, treated her leaky gut, and overcame all the symptoms she'd been suffering from before.

The food Elizabeth cooks nowadays is gluten-free, vegetable oil-free and sugar-free…and it tastes scrumptious. When choosing ingredients for her meals, Elizabeth focuses on locally grown products. She cooks and bakes using coconut oil, real butter, ghee, and plenty of anti-inflammatory herbs and spices. Through the healing properties of food and a daily yoga practice, Elizabeth has changed the way she looks at food, stress, relationships, and exercise.
