Personalized Health Coaching
Wellness coaching will empower you to make lasting changes that significantly will impact your health and well-being. Even if you know what you needto do to develop healthy lifestyle habits, to actually following through and taking action, or maintaining action for a lifetime, is an ongoing challenge.
Most wellness coaching relationships take place on the telephone, allowing us to work with you from your own home. For those who live near by, we can also work face to face. During weekly telephone conversations, the topics of most concern and need to you are explored.It is our job, as your coaches, to ask the tough questions which will get you to explore your deepest motivations for holistic change. The first step in the coaching process is to create your wellness vision.
In our weekly coaching conversations, you will celebrate the successes of the past week, review any difficulties you encountered, strategize around roadblocks, and set action goals to work on in the upcoming week. We will help you design a balanced wellness program, including exercise, yoga, meditation, stress relief, nutrition, and diet management.
Little by little you will achieve and taste success, by figuring out what works for you as a unique, individual. Wellness coaching will help you experience improved health and enhanced life satisfaction. You will learn to prioritize and tackle life-balancing issues, and begin to live your life in line with your core values leading to a sense of well-being, calmness and happiness.

The cold season is upon us. Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, the leaves are turning bright red and yellow. The winds are chilly. Smoke can be seen from early morning chimneys. This is the time for reduced immune systems; the time for chest colds and flu fevers. But these cold season maladies are not inevitable. Not if we take charge and build up a strong defense by bolstering our immune system.
Ayurveda instructs us not only to live in tune with our individual body type, but also the seasonal environment. During the colder vata season, it is important to maintain a regular routine with our meals and to eat warm, soupy foods.
In 2016, the Japanese cellular biologist Yoshinori Oshumi won the Nobel Prize for proving the process of authophagy, the way cells utilizes and recycles unnecessary or dysfunctional cellular components. In other words, I was able to heal my chronic condition during my 14 day juice fast because the fast allowed my cells to detox, regenerate and rebuild themselves.
