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’s Definitions

Health Coach
A person whose purpose is to guide another in obtaining and experiencing better health in their mind, body, and spirit. The end goal is for all women to live a life that is joyful, healthy, and passionate on her terms. This is my life long passion. To do just this!
Love
Keeping your heart open. Living without agenda or expectations. Pure. Loving yourself and others. What I feel for every woman!
Passion
An inner drive that pulls the woman in a direction which brings excitement and unveils her purpose. Health coaching is my passion and it is my purpose.
Mind
Your internal dialogue that is connected to your belief systems, physical anatomy and chemical reactions. Mine used to be cruel, now it is loving. I want that for you too.
Body
The physical form that houses your mind and the spiritual part of you.
Spirit
Inner true voice. The Great One. God. The universe. All truth and love. Our guide.
Health
  1. Body – Physically well and vibrant.
  2. Mind – Loving your internal dialogue and belief systems.
  3. Spirit – Being connected to your Source and knowing your purpose. This is my hearts desire for every Sister.
Crowding Out
Focusing on adding what is healthy instead of focusing on what you shouldn’t be doing. When we add in, our bodies start to become healthier and we have less time for bad choices. The healthier we are the easier it is to make healthy choices.
Sisters
Every female. Race, religion, etc. is irrelevant. We were not created to compete. We were created to celebrate each other. To bond together.
Physical Movement
Anything that activates the body’s healing system, through movement. Yoga, walking, gardening, playing, sex, etc. I use this word instead of exercise because I was talking with my sister about weight loss and when I said the word exercise she physically looked deflated. I noticed with my clients that the “E” word created a negative feeling. So, we don’t say exercise. We have physical movement.
Fear
An obstacle. A problem where the solution can’t be seen yet!
Goal weight
A weight where your medical numbers are in a healthy range. Blood pressure, sugar numbers, etc. Size is irrelevant.
Authentic Self
Who you are meant to be. You without the negative thoughts and mindsets we have come to believe about ourselves. Our most beautiful form.
Butterfly
Representation of the beauty of a woman.
Metamorphosis
Representative of the process of finding our authentic self.
Kaleidoscope
A group of butterflies. Us in our most beautiful form.
Membership
Our Sisterhood.
80/20
Eat 80% of the time super healthy foods and 20% of the time eat anything you want. When eating 80% of the time healthful, the 20% the body can handle. If fighting illness then the percentage should be tweaked.
Bio-individuality
One man’s poison is another man’s medicine and one man’s medicine is another man’s poison. Everybody is different and the needs and wants of every individual is different. Someone else’s solution may not be your solution.

Testimonials

I had been having cramps for a few months that finally got bad enough I decided to see my OB. At the appointment I learned I had a 4-5cm ovarian cyst -- the size of a golf ball! My OB said that I should come back in 6 weeks to check its size again. He said that if it hadn't shrunk by the time I came back (which he was anticipating it wouldn't since I had had it for a few months based on my symptoms), then I would need laparoscopic surgery to remove it, since it was at risk of bursting. The surgery would involve 3 incisions and a week laid up in bed; needless to say I wanted to avoid it. 
 
I reached out to Debbie to see if there was anything I could do to try and get my body to heal the cyst naturally. I told her I had 6 weeks to shrink it or I would need surgery. Debbie gave me a ton of recommendations which I implemented immediately (diet changes, new supplements, castor oil packs, etc.). She was great about meeting me where I was at and helping me figure out which recommendations would fit into my life -- it definitely didn't feel like a major overhaul but rather small little things I could incorporate for 6 weeks.
 
6 weeks later I went back to the OB -- and the cyst was half the size! My OB was so pleased and said "I have no concerns at all about this -- I'll see you at your annual appointment but no need for us to keep monitoring this." 
 
I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone looking for help healing conditions naturally.
