Hi! My name is Jacqueline Barnes, and you may call me Jackie!
In my own personal journey, I reinforced my belief on how nutrition positively affects my life when I suffered a debilitating back injury. I spent weeks on strict bed rest, months of hard core pain medications, and almost a year of physical therapy.
One day while having a session with my Holistic Physical Therapist, she suggested making changes to my diet to help reduce and eliminate my pain. I thought she was crazy but I begrudgingly complied and to my surprise those small changes drastically reduced my pain levels and got me off of the heavy duty pain pills. It was then, that I was convinced that food could be my medicine and I had the power within me already!
I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Deepak Chopra, Geneen Roth, and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
It is with this excitement and knowledge that it has become my goal to help you reach all of your health and wellness goals! Contact me today and lets get started.
