About MeThank you for getting to know me better.
Debbie Roppo Health Coach
I am an Institute for Integrative Nutrition graduate. IIN is the largest holistic health and nutrition school in the world.
I hold an IAHC certification.
To achieve this certification, coaches have demonstrated competency in critical coaching skills and can use the Certified International Health Coach (CIHC) designation.
I also completed The Art & Science of Coaching at Erickson College.
Erickson pioneers ICF-certified coach training in the United States, Canada, and globally. Erickson’s accredited coach training includes the world-renowned program The Art & Science of Coaching.
I am a licensed radiographic technologist and have been for over 20 years. I x-rayed at a busy Orthopedic Surgeons office where I eventually became the Office Coordinator for the practice.
All of that is great and I am proud of my accomplishments so far but one of my most amazing accomplishments is what happened after I was diagnosed with RA, Rheumatoid Arthritis. RA is a disease where the cartilage is destroyed throughout your body. There isn’t a cure and it is a life changing diagnosis.
The treatment for RA can be horrific to deal with, as an x-ray tech who x-rayed for an orthopedic surgeons office I saw first hand what the disease can do and what the treatment can do. I chose to treat myself naturally. I am not recommending this for anyone else. I believe whatever treatment you and your doctor come up with is between the two of you.
I created the 4 Gate Exploration approach to my healing, Nutrition, Steps, Environment and Worries.
Behind each gate there are a plethora of tools and I used them all! Here are some…
In Nutrition I focused on the foods that caused inflammation and removed them from my diet, and added the anti-inflammatory foods.
In Steps I chose movement that would support my joint health without adding trauma to them.
In Environment I looked at areas in my home, beauty regiment etc. where there where toxins that I could reduce.
In Worries I focused on my internal dialogue, relationships and my spiritual connection.
There was much more than just those steps for sure. But I am now in remission and am living a healthy life without inflammation. This is truly amazing as I was crawling on my knees in the mornings because of the pain of inflammation prior to my changes.
Ever since I was a little girl I have been passionate about health, it’s why I’m here.
My hearts desire is to walk alongside anyone who is interested in gaining health. I hope that someone is YOU!!

"Debbie was such a pleasure to work with. We spent 3 months working on the goals that she helped me to prioritize. She kept me focused using visualization techniques, meditation and journaling. I was thrilled with how productive our time together proved to be. I now have the tools to stay focused and stay on track. I would, and have, recommend Debbie to anyone looking to start a business, build better relationships or cope with family struggles. She is wonderful!!"
