Certified Health Coach from Heaven Lane Healing & Creative Arts
Why I Became An Integrative Medicine Health Coach At Age 60
I spent nearly 40 years dealing with a variety of unexplained health issues. When I was finally diagnosed with autoimmune disease, the pieces of the puzzle started coming together. I realized that I needed more than yoga and healthy eating to remain vibrant as I aged. A healthy lifestyle is very individual but it includes learning what foods and supplements are right for you based on an understanding of your genetics and history, your culture, and your preferences. It also means understanding triggers and past traumas. A look at your sleep routines, your exercise routines, your exposure to toxic chemicals are all important as we uncover the root causes of your dis-EASE. And what I have discovered most importantly, it takes a compassionate, knowledgable caring coach to walk the walk with you– listening to you, guiding you, and self-empowering you to understand that you have choices. Every day you can choose to support your health and happiness or not. My own health journey from chronic illnesses including Hashimoto’s, panic attacks, IBS, prediabetes, thyroid issues, Gastro-paresis, chronic inflammation, leaky gut, and generalized anxiety to WELLNESS has involved a complete revamping of my life and my mindset, and my physiology. I have the tools and the desire to help you.
Diets Did Not Work for Me! I Healed My Gut And Learned How To Eat For Health
I show you these pictures so you can see that with the right kind of lifestyle changes, you can actually look and feel better as you age. Despite the common misconception that you are destined to look and feel worse as you age, there are steps you can take to slow the aging process and reverse chronic disease. I am living proof and I want to help you get on a healing journey no matter what your age or diagnosis. As long as I eat the right foods, exercise the appropriate amount, sleep well, avoid toxic exposures and take care of my mind, body, and spirit, I will look and feel my best. This is what I teach and coach my clients. We do not diet, we find the right “diet” and “lifestyle” for his or her health.
