In 2001, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She put her cancer in remission for about 3 years with nutrition and food. Although the cancer ultimately took her life, she inspired me to learn more about food and nutrition and so my 'healing with food' journey began.
I started using a nutritional product in the form of meal replacement shakes made with New Zealand whey and liquid vitamins for the nutrition advantage relative to my own personal wellness.
While visiting a family member, we talked about how she is still struggling with her health & weight and I recommended she try incorporating Eat Right for Your Blood Type with her shake regimen
. She called me two weeks later and said she had resumed her weight loss, had lost 10# and was feeling better and sleeping even more soundly than before. It felt fantastic knowing that my support and inspiration helped someone else. I knew then, that I wanted to continue to help others with their personal wellness goals and I signed up to attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) to receive my certification.
When I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
, I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods; macrobiotics, keto diet, paleo diet, diabetic diet, thyroid diet, low carb high fat, no sugar diet...you name it! As human beings, we are not one size fits all. What works for one, may not work for someone else. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward the healthiest you within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
As part of my health coaching practice, I have incorporated products and supplements that I have used to for my own personal wellness. Some of my health coach practice offerings include a complimentary, confidential 50 minute initial health history, a free Medicine Cabinet Makeover class as an effective alternative to over the counter medication, a free Healing with Green Smoothies Class
that incorporates whole foods, essential oils
and other healthy products, go Green & Clean class as an alternative to harmful cleaning products, natural dog, cat and horse care alternatives and Mood Management to name but a few. The classes are presented live and on line. I offer samples of many of the products I use, so contact me TODAY to see if we are a match!
As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands.
