Hi, it’s so nice to meet you. My name is Tracy and that handsome fella next to me is the love of my life and has been my best friend for almost 20 years!!! We have two beautiful teenagers, Epiphany and Ryan and two four-legged kiddies, Cinnamon & Blue. I have experienced first hand in my own life how eating a nutrient rich whole foods and plant-based diet and a positive outlook in life can change ones health drastically! My story began in early 2002. Back then, I was a SAHM and owner of a thriving corporate gifts and gift basket company. I was working on my largest order ever and I was beyond exhausted. In general, I worried a LOT – mostly over things that were beyond my control and I was STILL carrying the weight I had gained from both pregnancies (my youngest was 2-years old!!!). Even though I had taken note of how “puffy” I looked and felt, it wasn’t until I was listening to something on the radio later that year that I decided that it was time to get to the root of the constant swelling in my hands and face & pitting edema in my legs and feet. Soon after the appointment with my family physician, I was put on prescription meds for and sent to a specialist who later diagnosed me with an idiopathic form of nephrotic syndrome and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). As I sat in his office at 26 years old, the doctor proceeded to tell me that there was no cure, that my condition would progress to kidney failure (or transplantation if I was lucky even though FSGS can recur in 30-40% of patients who receive a transplant), that I would have to immediately need to be admitted into the hospital and that my ONLY option for treatment was steroids, I literally laughed out loud as I tried to take it all in. I ask him about the side effects and when he proceeded to go down a litany of things I’d be “mostly likely to experience” that all sounded much worse than what I was currently experiencing, I decided to get a second opinion. One doctor led to another and the meds followed suit. Fast forward several years and it seemed that my condition had progressed to the point of having the dreaded “list” conversation. Knowing that this was not the life I had envisioned for myself and my family, I began my pursuit for health, happiness and healing which led me to The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I became a health coach. You can read more about HERE. As my kids say, “The struggle is REAL”. I understand that struggle and I can help you. My own journey to health continues to unfold and everyday is a blessing and an opportunity for me to help others. As an advocate of holistic nutrition for the therapeutic intervention, prevention, and reversal of chronic lifestyle diseases, I specialize in supporting men & women whose health is in a state of dis-ease and imbalance by equipping them with the tools to manage their weight, transform their health and experience a greater sense of equilibrium in their everyday lives. So, if you are a man or woman with who is ready to take control of your health and would like a mentor who will hold you accountable to achieving your goals, LET’S CHAT! I’d love to invite you to a healthy conversation to get acquainted with you and learn more about your health goals. A healthy conversation is the first step for those who are ready to dive deeper into balanced living, and wanting to gain the tools vital for invigorating their mind, body and spirit. During this brief introductory session by FaceTime, Skype or by phone, you’ll have the opportunity to talk about your life, what you’ve always dreamed of and the goals you’d like to accomplish. It’s a time to be heard and to get a sense of what it feels like to have more support in achieving your best health.
