Why would a Registered nurse of 24 years want to be a Health Coach and practice wellness? I have been passionate about Health and Wellness all my life. I remember at 15 years old reading health books on my own and watching Jane Fonda do aerobics. Now I am 'dating' myself!
I am passionate about prevention! Let me say it again... prevention! I see the chronic diseases that are killing Americans everyday. Heart disease, the number 1 killer is rampant and it can be prevented. High cholesterol, blood pressure,obesity, and diabetes can all be prevented and what do we do? Load people with pills and tests and send them off. Don't get me wrong, I believe in Western Medicine and appreciate it very much, but it is time to help people heal themselves.
FOOD is MEDICINE! Moving our bodies is essential. Hippocrates said, "Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well."
