Welcome! My name is Marsha Beals and I would like to share my story of why I became a Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach.
My life took a downward spiral on the morning of June 3, 2010, when I immediately discovered I had a new health challenge. I awoke with an acute vertigo attack and hearing loss in my left ear. An MRI showed an acoustic neuroma tumor in my auditory canal.
When I asked a handful of doctors, they could not tell me how I got this tumor, but they did tell me that there was nothing they could do for me, or give me, except watch and wait for surgery. This upset me, because it gave me no hope.
Since waiting for surgery wasn’t an option for me and I wanted answers, I had to take immediate steps without doctors and their traditional medicines. I realized that my body was telling me something – my body was sick – so I decided to listen and do something about it. I began my journey to get to the root of the problem and found a natural alternative solution…primary and secondary foods to heal the body…a natural approach.
I educated myself in natural health and healing. Notice, HEALTHY is made up of two words – HEAL and THY – that’s hope that doctors couldn’t give me. I slowly changed my lifestyle to improve my health by implementing this education. I furthered my education and received training from the world’s largest nutrition school, Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).
IIN equipped me with extensive knowledge in the importance of preventative care to illness, health coaching and holistic nutrition. I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
Ironically, it was a blessing in disguise to have been pushed away by doctors, because since being on my journey to optimal health, I’m healthier than I’ve ever been. Becoming a Health & Wellness Coach allows me to pay it forward by helping others with their health challenges or weight management goals.
My passion is to work with clients with making the dietary and lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. We will explore the process of bringing the body back to wellness, with a solid foundation to resist sickness and disease. My mission is about creating success stories by helping individuals feel better, look better, increase their energy, lose weight permanently and improve their overall health through education and implementation.
The greatest reward for me will be helping change the lives that I will come in contact with. I want to make a difference by inspiring and encouraging others. I wish I knew years ago what I know now, but I remind myself and tell my clients that it’s never too late and it’s later than you think. Please contact me to begin your journey to optimal health today!
