Mind-Body Shift

Renee Canada CT Health CoachIn my early years living with chronic illness, I remember feeling so very alone. As I began to share my story, I realized how many other women—and men—were out there who, like me, faced challenging diseases that either lacked a cure or clear-cut treatments, had progressive stages of severity or periods of remissions and relapses, and frequently baffled even the best of physicians with both diagnosing and treatment options.

More than anything, we have been crying out for support. Someone to really hear us. Someone to be our cheerleader. Someone to help us learn to really listen to what our bodies are trying to tell us: to find food that energizes and sustains us; to make more time for the right kind of exercise for our individual bodies; to get more sleep; to dump the toxic relationships and build nurturing ones; to discover a job that doesn’t drain our time, energy and soul; to surround ourselves with hope and positivity; and to find pockets of time to do the things we love that fill us with joy.

Deep down, YOU know what your body is really craving. You instinctively know the way to good health—if only you had a map and a guide.

The good doctors do their job well. We are lucky to get 15 to 30 minutes of one-on-one time with our doctor to discuss lab results, ask questions, share concerns and discuss any of the latest findings or research. But unfortunately doctors lack the time or ability to truly counsel us and give direction in between visits.

The great news is that you don’t have to go on this journey alone—if you have a health coach. You can do it with someone who has shared your present struggles, who is there to support, encourage and inform you every step of the way.

When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve?

With the hustle and bustle of modern daily life, it’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on his or her nutrition and lifestyle goals with a trained professional. As your holistic health and lifestyle coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to set and achieve your unique health goals. Over the years, I too have been challenged while learning the steps necessary for finding and embarking on the path toward wellness. Over the years, I have learned the keys to stay motivated on the journey toward healing. As your health and lifestyle coach, let me help guide you back down the road to good health, happiness and success.

Most approaches to nutrition and diet dwell on pounds on a scale and counting calories, fat and carbs. Instead of creating lists of restrictions, of good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a vibrant life full of vitality—to make healthy choices in life, in a way that is flexible, fun and punishment-free. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.

No single approach works for everyone. By working together, we can uncover the food and lifestyle choices that best support your unique needs and way of life. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
