Hi, my name is Kimberly Lynch. I founded Natural Balance LLC with a simple goal of providing tools and space for people to learn how to take control of their health, achieve balance and live their best lives. I am blessed to be a part of my clients’ journeys to explore the mind-body connection and help them achieve their goals mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Throughout childhood, I learned to thrive in stress and chaos. I was fortunate enough to grow up with a loving single mom who, unfortunately, worked herself sick – literally – to take care my brother and me. As the eldest child, I often took on additional responsibility like juggling full time work and school just to make ends meet. With the mission of caring for my family, I paid little attention to how much I overworked myself. I simply got used to running on empty without allowing myself to focus energy on the things in life that really mattered to me. This became my “normal.”
As I entered adulthood I continued my “normal,” first with my husband and then with my children. I was consistently anxious and exhausted, working tirelessly to provide them with a quality of life I had only ever dreamed of. Little did I know, this imbalance severely limited myself and my family. In constantly trying to set them up for future success, I wasn’t able to be present in the time that I did get to spend with them. My husband and I were reduced to sprinting through life together but never having enough energy to keep up. This was my pattern and I didn’t know how to break it.
I remember feeling overwhelmed and helpless when my middle daughter, at age 10, became so sick that even the doctors didn’t know what was wrong with her. We saw several specialists over a three-week period and after countless exams and tests, we were left with more questions than answers. Doctors had done their best with the tools available to them, yet it wasn’t enough to get her well. Feeling that I had exhausted all of the traditional options, I began looking for complementary means to heal my daughter. Upon a friend’s referral, I took her to see someone who worked with energy to help balance the body. Within three days my daughter was back at school. This experience forced me to take a closer look to determine what had shifted to allow my daughter to be miraculously on the road back to health.
That was a turning point in my life. I believe that God works in mysterious ways sometimes . . . and I believe that He gives us a plethora of tools to help our bodies find their way to balance. With deeper investigation, I began to uncover the power of energy and stress reduction and the dramatic effects it can have on our body and mind.
I remember learning in grade school that we are all atoms with electrons in the outer shell . . . making us electrical beings. Continuing my recollection and discovery, my fascination grew with the body electric. It is the key to removing the stressors that break our bodies down and allow the disease process to take hold. Essentially, stress and imbalance in the body and mind is the root cause of disease. So the question became: what can I do to prevent this for me, my family and others?
I was blessed to then have the opportunity to explore all of this in detail. As my family members came back into a balanced state, we experienced less illnesses, anxieties, and our overall well-being was improving. It dawned on me how sharing my experience with others could dramatically improve people’s health. I learned about how our thoughts and feeling directly influence our physical body and that we have the power to change this. Anxiety and exhaustion were no longer my “normal” and I began to take measures to improve.
I started sleeping better and once again felt fully rested when I woke up in the morning. I had more energy, allowing me to accomplish my daily tasks while maintaining energy to spend quality time with family and friends. I was happier and able to resume hobbies that I had previously been too exhausted to pursue. Things that would have normally spiraled me into panic attacks now caused my less anxiety overall. My family unit had now shifted into a cohesive group, working together from a place of balance and compassion, with an understanding that inner peace and balance is the route to true success. Our home was now a den of peace, love and support. Overall, I became balanced and my passion for life was renewed.
Looking back on my years of study and experience working with clients, I am honored to have been able to be a part of the healing journey for so many. Understanding that everyone’s situation is unique, we can work together from an attitude of gratefulness, forgiveness and compassion. While I attribute my success to God, I respect all worldviews and welcome any client who is committed to healing, regardless of religion, spirituality, race, gender, or any other identity. I understand that each of us is on our own personal journey and my role is to guide and support others in finding the balance to transform their lives.
