Routines That Uplift with Daphne Javitch, Health Educator + Founder of Doing Well
In this blog, we’ll explore the journey of Daphne Javitch, Health Educator + Founder of Doing Well, who overcame lifelong symptoms of stage four endometriosis through diet and lifestyle. Her approach to health is founded in nutrition but emphasizes holistic well-being, including sleep, stress management, exercise, AIS connection and purpose, and routine building.
Daphne is a health educator and health coach who works with private groups and corporate clients. Her insights have been shared widely in women’s lifestyle media and appeared on our Know & Do Better Podcast episode.
Daphne’s endometriosis symptoms started when she was 13 years old, and they became more debilitating as she grew older. At the age of 34, she was diagnosed with endometriosis and was advised to go on birth control immediately. Instead, she chose to address her condition holistically with the help of a health coach. Daphne was consistent and rigorous in her approach, and some of her symptoms went into remission within six months. She went from taking 12 Advil a day on the worst day of her period to just one Advil for her entire cycle. This awakened an innate feeling within her and propelled her life and profession in a new direction.
Daphne believes that consistency, repetition, and creating a routine play a vital role in improving health. She understands that people have a lot of information, but they are missing the how. Being consistent with small adjustments has a cumulative effect and is more impactful than extreme measures that lead to extreme failure.
“Living a healthy life is not just about exercising, it’s about finding ways to support your body, especially if you’re dealing with chronic pain, chronic conditions, injury, or disabilities. While we have the potential to heal ourselves internally, we also live in a very unnatural modern world that exposes us to toxic burdens. Even if we do everything perfectly, we can still experience health challenges.” – Daphne
When asked what someone could do to lead a more uplifting, energized life with a healthful routine, her response was simple: start drinking a liter of water before noon. This not only ensures hydration but also helps people keep track of how much water they’re drinking, which can be difficult to gauge without measurement. Drinking water in the morning is also supportive of intermittent fasting practices and helps give the body an internal rinse after a night’s sleep.
As for words of encouragement, Daphne advises people to focus on the return, especially when things don’t go as planned. Life is full of unexpected interruptions, but it’s important to find joy, excitement, and spontaneity, which can be healing in their own right.
In summary, Daphne’s journey with endometriosis taught her the importance of a holistic approach to health, emphasizing nutrition, sleep, stress management, exercise, AIS connection, purpose, and routine building. Her story is a testament to the power of consistency and the innate healing power that we all possess. Follow her along on her journey.
