Why Lifestyle Medicine?
I became a true believer in the power of nature to heal after experiencing the remarkable recovery of a loved one from a terminal condition. Inspired by this life changing event, I re-directed my efforts to building on this knowledge and bringing it to those who are seeking answers.
I left pharmaceutical development and spent the next ten years researching and developing non-toxic approaches for many health conditions. The data is undeniable. Many illnesses we face can be reversed by simply changing what we eat and what we do. Sadly, our healthcare system does not have a mechanism in place to teach individuals how to make the changes that will save their lives. This is where health coaching fills a need.
As a coaching client, you come to understand your body, its needs and signals. You will experience greater clarity and vitality than ever before. In this honest, supportive environment, you will develop the confidence to step out of your comfort zone and realize a level of success you only dreamed possible. So, if you are serious about experiencing the future of medicine now, I invite you to open a conversation with me.
All my best,
