Health Coaching – About Jessica

25_jessica_shepherd_04_07_2012_150x225

Certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, I’d rather not take drugs and I assume the same is true for you. I have personal and client experience working with: Adrenal Fatigue, Acne, Candidiasis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Urinary Tract Infections, Depression & Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Dental Amalgam Mercury Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Parasites, Yeast Infections, Obesity, Pre-Diabetes, Diabetes (Type 1), Digestive Disorders, Mood Disorders, Thyroid conditions. All of the above can be significantly healed if not entirely reversed through dietary and lifestyle shifts.

Other fun facts about me: I trained as an astrologer for many years, and also wrote a book, before starting this second career in 2012. My astrology company is called Moonkissd Astrology. My book, A Love Alchemist’s Notebook: Magical Secrets To Drawing Your True Love Into Your Life is my story about how I attracted my husband and soul mate using spiritual techniques. I am an artist, and I have a BA in Arts Management from Coastal Carolina University.

My favorite quote about healing comes from a woman who cured herself from terminal TB in the 1930’s and lived to be 106, Dr. Hazel Parcells, who said, “If you want to be healthy, you have to trade your wishbone for a backbone and get to work!” It’s a bummer that it takes so much work to stay healthy nowadays, but we are living in extremely toxic times.

My Training

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, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; 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.
