Reclaim Your Health: How cleaning up your lifestyle can change your life
What would happen if you were able to live a clean lifestyle and what does that mean? While there are environmental factors we cannot avoid, the more steps we take to reduce the toxins we can, the stronger our bodies are and the better able to handle those we can’t. You have more power over your health than you may believe. Learn how to harness that power, and discover new steps toward health that have nothing to do with food, exercise, or the products you use.
Donna Morin, M.Ed, is a certified health coach, founder of Better Off Well Coaching services, and Board Secretary for the Savvy Women’s Alliance. Donna was inspired to coach and write after her own journey from “box-etarian” to plant-based diet resolved many of her health issues, including chronic back pain and asthma. In her seven years of practice, and after working with hundreds of women, Donna has grown to understand that health is even more than organic broccoli, and she shares those discoveries in her workshops.
