What I can teach you does not interfere with your doctor’s care, and is in addition to what your doctor is recommending. As you work with me, we will find healthy solutions that are life style related. Simple changes can make an enormous difference in your health. I am not a doctor, a nutritionist or a dietitian. As your certified health coach, I can help you in different ways than those health professionals. I have not been certified as a functional medicine professional. I have worked with a functional MD and found great healing from lifestyle changes. As your health coach, I will provide the support to make the changes necessary for wellness. We won’t just talk about food, and eating clean and healthy recipes, we will talk about your food sensitivities, sleep, primary food (things you do to replenish your soul), your life balance, ANTS*, breathing, stress, and cleaning toxins out of your body, your environment, your cosmetics, and your life. Working together we will clean up your gut, which is the gateway to health. I will listen and “hear” what you are telling me so that together we will find sustainable solutions to solve your health problems. We will spend delicious time together all about you. I will teach you to “own” your own health, and become your own health advocate. I will teach you to enhance the care that you are getting from the other health professionals by being a fully present partner.
