How I Got Started
My name is Anne Lebeau and I'm a middle-aged woman living with an autoimmune disease. I'm a Montrealer who lived abroad and traveled the world with my husband. I lived as an expat in both Germany and Curacao. We returned to Montreal 3.5 years ago.
I am passionate about helping people. I'm a special education teacher by training with additional training in linguistics, well-being, mindfulness and exercise. I'm also a lifelong learner.
I have always liked cooking, trying new foods and being active, but I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease 6 months after my return to Canada. Traditional medicine wasn't working well for me and I was getting worse, to the point where I was nearly incapacitated about two years ago. I wanted to explore the possibilities of turning my life around with a combination of food and lifestyle changes in addition to modern medical treatments.
I consulted with a nutritionist to help me choose the right diet/lifestyle to treat my disease. The nutritionist gave me broad guidelines and studies to read. I now follow an anti-inflammatory diet/lifestyle and I'm able to lead a normal life. I exercise regularly, I've lost 25 lbs, I meditate regularly and so much more.
I created Lebeau Concept to share what I've learned and help others who don't know where to start with their own journey.
