Welcome! I’m Michelle. Thanks for checking out my website and getting to know me better. I am a holistic health coach and a registered nurse. I have an extensive cardiology background working with clients experiencing high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, and smoking. These are all chronic lifestyle diseases that can be changed. My nursing and medical background gives me a great advantage in helping you to meet your wellness goals.
As your health coach, I will help you combat inflammation associated with pain, arthritis, chronic sinusitis, and depression. Once you get rid of that inflammation, your world will open up to feeling great, having more energy, free of pain, and losing weight. Together we will create a program specific to you and your needs.
Here’s my story. I’ve been where your are.
I suffered from chronic back pain for about 11 months. With it I was always leaning forward in a guarded position with a slight limp to the side. I couldn’t straighten up due to the pain. I was even about a 1/4 inch shorter. I was miserable and in pain ALL THE TIME. I was offered narcotics and other pain medicines, but opted not to take them. I lived off of over-the-counter anti-inflammatory meds and, when ordered, the higher dose prescription strength ones. I had enough! I knew I needed to do something so I turned to food. I have been pain free ever since I changed my food choices.
I’ve had a rather severe case of chronic asthma. Through my understanding of whole foods, I’ve been able to eliminate daily asthma medications and inhalers. Since switching to eating whole foods, unprocessed, and alkaline foods I have not had one asthmatic occurrence. Additionally, I had a shoulder tear injury that required surgery, but through eating a nutrient rich diet and using other alternative therapies, surgery was not needed. In fact, the surgeon said to continue doing whatever I was doing because from her standpoint, I was healed.
There are many more stories about my health and food, but these three I mention are the most profound.
I am a true believer that food and healthy living can be your medicine.
I do live a healthy lifestyle to the best of my abilty along with my family. Check out my pictures below to see. The other hats I wear are mother to three active and busy girls and an urban chicken farmer.
