Healing has very little to do with outside treatments.
Healing is much more about inner healing.
Healing your emotional wounds because they are the root cause of illness.
Have you ever wondered why we get a friendlier welcome when we go to coffee shop than when we go to a hospital or the doctor's office ? Sure, you're not visiting your doctor to buy a warm beverage, but that time together is usually important, especially if you are dealing with a health issue. There is a huge demand for a new kind of health advocate and to help fill a void in our current healthcare system.
Enter Health Coaches.
Health Coaches work with clients to make shifts from unhealthy habits to sustainable habits for long-lasting health. With more doctors and medical professionals seeing the value of nutrition, movement, and other lifestyle factors in overall health more of them have begun to work with Health Coaches in their practices to serve their patients.
Using my nutrition and coaching skills, I help my clients discover which foods and lifestyle choices make them feel best. Most importantly, I take a holistic approach to health, which means I not only focus on food, but also on all other areas of life that can support and nourish your overall health, such as stress, career, relationships, and environment.
On your own, illness is the biggest barrier for emotional health. It’s a barrier because it’s up to you to take it on. And most people won’t have the information, tools, guidance, support, and assessment they need in order to thrive. From a psychological perspective, being on your own means that you’re more likely to dismiss, doubt, minimize, or judge yourself for the emotional impact that illness has had on your life. None of these actions will serve you well in the long run.
In my program you will receive one-on-one coaching with me that will transform your life and get it to the next level. I will provide you with health restoring information, research, books (also my own !), recipes, email support and gifts right to your inbox or door. At the end of the program you will have gained a wealth of wisdom and a fresh look at your life and how to make more of it. Investing in yourself is the best investment you can make because it is a lasting investment that you will benefit from for the rest of your life.

I have been coaching people ever since I was a teenager, cheering people up and giving them advice. But I didn't realize until much later in life that it was actually my passion and my true talent.
I was trained at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where I learned from the world's best experts in the field of nutrition and wellness. Their approach is unique in the world. They are also the only school in the world integrating all of the various dietary theories - combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies, like Ayurveda, macrobiotics, and Chinese medicine, with modern concepts like the USDA food guides, the glycemic index, the Zone, and raw foods.
Diet is the largest lever for health changes.
And being healthy is really not that complicated. The body knows what to eat. It's the brain that makes mistakes. Nutrition is called secondary food. The way you live is called primary food. Why ? Because the way we live determines the way we eat.
I combine this wisdom with simple steps for living a more balanced life full of laughter, joy, and abundance. I have noticed that, as people improve their health, they become empowered to pursue the life of their dreams - the life they came here to live.
I notice that so many people are miserable. This should not be the case for anyone because it is our birthright to be happy and to go through life with ease.
I am here to help and advise my clients not only on healthy eating habits that immediately influence our mood, but together we also look at areas in their life where they are struggling.
This is called the circle of life. The more the circle is round, the more your life is in balance. This has a full impact on your health.

Hiring Ingrid to be my Health Coach was worth every penny. Healing is a journey, you will have good days and bad days and it takes time. On my bad days she keeps me grounded when I feel like everything around me is out of control. Having her there beside me on my healing journey has been a huge blessing. I would not be where I am at today if it wasn’t for her. Healing your body takes a healthy Mind, Body, and Soul and she has helped and shown me ways to achieve this. Ingrid has given me so much over the last 6 months, she has given me hope, strength, health and a friend for life.
Ingrid has taught me so much not only about food but also how to gain confidence in myself. I had been having digestive issues for years. Together we looked at the foods I needed to avoid and the ones I needed to add. After doing her 3 month program I no longer have this issue. Ingrid is a great listener and always cheered me up. I can highly recommend her for anyone who wants to improve diet or lifestyle.
Ingrid has been with me for 9 months during a period that was difficult for me (moving, change of life, illness).
Her listening and advice helped me to go through these ordeals in a more serene way, to find the means to face these situations in particular by a better diet (recipes) and activities to be practiced. She was able to advise me to the right reads at the right time, direct me to a competent therapist, welcome my discouragement very kindly and help me not to "let go of everything".
Her kindness and testimony are heartwarming and full of optimism.
I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.
Having been coached by Ingrid, I know that she is extremely caring and compassionate. She is easy to talk to and has an amazing story to tell. Ingrid knows what it takes to come face to face with a scary medical diagnosis, trust her intuition and go inside her body to re-balance and heal naturally. And when it comes to healthy living, she walks the talk. Her courage, conviction, zest for life and knowledge of food as medicine, will be of great value to her clients.
My introduction with Ingrid, I recall thinking what a pioneer. She wrapped her core around grasping and finding the discipline to concur dis-ease.
It takes a special individual to live outside the box. To have the patience to research the perseverance to follow through with a conviction of hope to heal mend and thrive through cancer with alternative therapies.
Ingrid lives with a conviction to thrive that is infectious. Her integrated health coach certification has only unfolded and widens her perspective of what she has already lived.
If you are looking to live well or learn to live with and thrive through dis-ease you have come to meet your 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐝𝐞.
I am comfortable and confident to recommend working with Ingrid would be a step in the right direction to health and well being.
Namaste’ Be well.
