OUR STORIES ARE UNIQUE
Hey everyone! I'm Colleen, a Holistic Health Coach and Registered Nurse. I believe that wellness begins within. We are designed for health. Every organ, cell and tissue fulfilling its purpose to function highly in the body, if given an environment that supports. Nutrition is only one component of health. The water you drink, air you breath, relationships you nurture, and thoughts you think, affect who you are and how you function. When you become aware and choose to listen, trust and honor what your body is saying, the true magic of living unfolds.
My journey to coaching was triggered by a health awakening six years ago. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease at age 22 and wasn't getting the answers I needed. Fatigue, bloating, skin and digestional issues were very common for me. These symptoms are common but not normal! I chose to let this fuel and empower my wellness journey by focusing on nutrient-density rather than counting calories and restrictive diets. Real food = real nutrition. Sunshine, rest, plenty of water, removing toxins, essential minerals and nutrients, made from the earth helped me regain control over my health. It takes time, energy and a lot of trial and error to determine what works best for each of us, but real food i With this mindset shift and continued education, my world was changed.
I love sharing what I've learned about health. It's so important to be aware of who you are and the person you want to become. Empower yourself to take control of your health! This, in return will create a ripple effect of change around you.
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition with a Holistic Health Coaching degree, where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition and health coaching. Holistic health emphasizes the mind, body and spirit connection, looking at the body as a whole.
