Life is a journey full of twists and turns. An adventure, if you will, that can take a person into areas never thought possible.
My journey as brought me here, a health coach. So what is a health coach you may ask? Glad you asked. A health and wellness coach is a person who walks beside an individual to encourage one to reach his or her health goals. Whether it's weight loss or acquiring more energy, a health coach can help. As a graduate of Institute of Integrative Nutrition, I have learned many dietary theories. We are all individuals who react differently to foods. One man's food may be another man's poison. With this premise, bio-individuality is key to health and wellness.
As a dental hygienist, I have worked years with patients on oral health needs. Research continues to emerge on the connection between oral and systemic health. Inflammation in the gums often signal a problem with health. The body systems are not isolated from each other, so why do we treat them as such?
My journey to better health became a passion in 2012 when my husband was diagnosed with cancer. Sadly, he passed away in 2016, but not without a fight. I began to delve into alternative ways to fight cancer and learned a great deal along the way. My dream is to PREVENT the cancer diagnosis. A cancer diagnosis changes a person forever. Cancer touches everyone, whether it's a loved one, a friend, or a co-worker.
I believe if we treat our body like a garden rather than a machine, we can live a better life. Our soul landed in this earthly body. It is our home. I also believe we can live well. Won't you let me help you reach your wellness goals?
