About MeHello, It's nice to meet you.
Hi! I’m Debbie. If you’re looking for information to help you feel more hopeful about your health, then you’re in the right place
I was in your shoes just 7 years ago. My doctor told me the reason I was in such horrific pain was because I had Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), a disease that destroys cartilage throughout the body, and for which there is no cure.
But I was determined that my fingers and feet were not going to remain swollen, and I was not going to have to crawl across the floor, forever. So, I did some research, decided on a holistic path and went about my mission.
I was always interested in learning about Health, but never followed up on it. Turns out that excruciating pain and a diagnosis were exactly what I needed to start me on my journey toward a healthier life.
What I’ve learned is that good health involves a balanced combination of nutrition and movement. Some nutrition is easy to get through the foods we eat, and some is best ingested in supplement form.
Tweaking my nutrition and movement definitely helped my symptoms lessen. However, once I discovered the root of my problem… and then did something to change it… my health began to significantly improve.
Crazy as it might sound, the changes I needed to make had to happen deep inside me. Basically, I needed to love myself more. I needed to set some boundaries. And I desperately needed to say good-bye to the cruel voice inside me that criticized every move I made.
It may seem like work, but I’m reluctant to call anything that feels this good “work.” Going through this process has not only been successful and enlightening, it has also enabled me to confidently share what I’ve learned with people trying to find their way through similar situations.
I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, hold IAHC certification, completed Erickson College’s Art & Science of Coaching, and for 20+ years have been a licensed radiographic technologist.
I am a lifelong learner of Law of Attraction and currently am studying Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCA) and A Course in Miracles.
It may sound strange, but I actually feel gratitude for the pain I endured and the diagnosis I received. If it were not for these two difficult challenges, I would not have the improved health that I currently enjoy… and I would not be able to share what I’ve learned with people like you.
When the time feels right for you to begin your journey toward improved health, please email me. It would be my honor to walk alongside you as your advocate and coach.
