As a dedicated Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I bring a unique blend of academic rigor and holistic wellness to my practice. I hold a Master's degree in Psychology and a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, which I have artfully integrated into my health coaching journey, broadening my understanding of holistic health and its profound impact on our lives. My professional foundation is firmly rooted in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where I embarked on comprehensive studies as a health coach. This institute's methodology emphasizes two core nourishment approaches: "Primary Food" and "Secondary Food," unlocking the secrets to wholesome well-being that go beyond what's on your plate. I proudly hold the title of a full member of the UK International Health Coaching Association, a testament to my commitment to professional excellence and unwavering dedication to my clients' health and happiness. However, my journey extends beyond these credentials. I am the founder of the "Healthy Rebel Movement," a testament to my belief in three transformative principles: 1. Self-Care Rebellion: It's time to challenge the belief that prioritizing self-care is selfish. By embracing this rebellion, we become better equipped to support and care for others. It's about adopting stress reduction techniques, mindfulness, nurturing healthy relationships, and providing space for self-reflection. 2. Nourishment Revolution: I advocate bidding farewell to restrictive diets and fleeting solutions. The Nourishment Revolution is about reclaiming your relationship with food and adopting a nourishing, sustainable approach. This movement involves consuming whole, nutrient-dense foods, listening to your body's wisdom, and discovering the joy in the mindful act of eating. 3. Lifestyle Liberation: Our sedentary and stress-laden modern lifestyles need a shake-up. The Lifestyle Liberation movement encourages us to break free from these shackles. It's about seamlessly weaving movement, exercise, and joyful activities into your daily routine. It's the quest for balance, the exploration of novel ways to engage your body, and the celebration of the incredible benefits of an active lifestyle. I am on a mission to empower and inspire, helping individuals revolutionize their health and well-being from the inside out. With a foundation in psychology, philosophy, and integrative nutrition.

Todd Bailey has dealt with chronic pain his entire adult life. What started as high school sports injuries (and surgeries) eventually led to 20 orthopedic surgeries. This constant pain not only restricted his physical activities but also prevented him from enjoying many things he loved. Prescription and OTC meds would help for a time, but their benefits were short-lived, and their side effects were harsh and harmful. Merely masking the pain with pills wasn’t working. He had to find a better way to manage pain and inflammation. He needed real healing. Nature is abundant with plant extracts and other substances for soothing inflammation, calming nerves, and alleviating pain. However, their potency is limited if they're not efficiently absorbed by the body. Enter DMSO, a solution that addresses this absorption challenge and offers much more. Alone, DMSO combats inflammation and pain. But its real power is in its ability to amplify the absorption of other substances, enabling enhanced therapeutic effects. This discovery was pivotal for Todd, leading to innovative formulations and the relief he desperately sought. This journey inspired our guiding principle at Herbal Mana to help people like Todd to "hurt less, live more." Todd Bailey co-founded Herbal Mana to help relieve chronic pain sufferers like him. He is CEO and is uniquely qualified to serve as Chief Product Tester. You will find these exclusive formulas at:

Catharine Arnston is an expert in algae nutrition,a wellness thought leader,an experienced entrepreneur, and sought after speaker. She has an MBA, BA Hons and is a Board Certified Health Coach. Catharine's journey into the fascinating world of algae began in 2008 when her younger sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would improve her healing. Catharine left her 25-year corporate career to help her sister identify which foods were alkaline and this led her to algae - the most alkaline, chlorophyll-rich, high-protein, nutrient-dense food in the world. When Catharine learned that algae's vast healing properties were documented in tens of thousands of scientific studies but that none of these studies or benefits were known outside of Asia, she knew she needed to do something. And so ENERGYbits was born. Catharine has spent the last ten years researching algae, writing papers, giving presentations, lecturing at conferences, and speaking on 150+ podcasts to explain the benefits of algae. To do this, she read thousands of scientific papers that detailed, validated, and confirmed algae's nutritional, health, longevity, and global benefits. Remarkably none of these findings are known by consumers. It is Catharine's vision and passion to change this and while she is not a Ph.D., her scientific fluency allows her to explain algae with such simplicity and clarity, it quickly becomes obvious why algae is something we all urgently need. Catharine's passion for algae is contagious, inspiring and thought-provoking. Her efforts have led to algae being better understood by educators, consumers, doctors, and wellness practitioners. Even the United Nations and NASA endorse algae as the most nutrient-dense food in the world and the answer to world hunger. Catharine's extensive knowledge and playful personality is both entertaining and educating and her speaking style leaves audiences informed, uplifted, and hopeful. She looks forward to doing the same for you. To experience this life-changing nutrition for yourself, and at a discount, use the promo code TotalWellness for a 20% discount.

Isaiah Aragon Owner of Wyo Grown LLC After learning that nutrition is the key to good health and longer life I came across the world of Microgreens which are a specific stage of growth in vegetables. Instead of harvesting a carrot after 3 months, I harvest my carrots after 3 weeks right around when you start to see the first true leafs. In doing so the plant is up to 40x more nutritious because it hasn't used up all of its nutrients to fully grow. After my different varieties of Microgreens are harvested I then freeze dry them. Which naturally preserves them and allows me to blend them into a powdered supplement. With just 1/2 a teaspoon I am able to get my daily nutritional value. I've since changed my view on the world and do not look at weeds the same way I used to. So I harvested my own dandelions and turned them into a powder for personal use. And anytime I come across long overgrown weeds with flowers I try and find out what they are and if they can also be useful. WEBSITE FACEBOOK Wyo Grown
