Why I Became a Health Coach

Updated: Apr 28

For years I have been fascinated by the body’s ability to heal with the right food. I have watched every documentary I could find and I am constantly reading books about different ways of eating. I love to learn how to hack your body for top performance, how to reverse autoimmune disease, to hear stories of people curing their cancer through diet, the list goes on.


When I find another person interested in those same things I can talk for hours. The food industry, media, and deceptive advertisements have us all brainwashed. Honestly, in the beginning, I was just infuriated as I learned more and more about food and about what manufacturers are allowed to use to produce our "food" and products. The standard American diet is making us fat and sick. What does the media have right? That adults today will outlive their children, that children are now getting type 2 diabetes. Type 2! What was once an "adult" disease is now affecting our children.


Our population continues to become more and more obese. Are sick and overweight individuals responsible for their condition? Not as much as you assume. The American diet if full of "food" that isn't really food. It was manufactured in a factory and marketed to make you believe it is food. The food pyramid of the 90's was designed to sell grains and create profits, not to create health.


As my eyes were opened I wanted to tell everyone! When something lights you up and you talk for hours about it, you know it is your calling. I also see how healthcare is changing. With insurance costs on the rise every year and out of pockets costs skyrocketing, I think more and more people are looking for alternatives to stay healthy and to get off medications. There are so many things we can do for ourselves once we have the knowledge. I am here to share my knowledge with you and I look forward to also learning from you!
