Around 1980 I thought I was following a healthy diet when I had my first gout attack, and the only resources I had were local libraries and writing to the World Health Organization for all known alternative remedies, long before the internet. I went through 20 years of acute attacks in several joints, spending weeks in bed taking far too much aspirin.

The medical community had no solution for me other than offering drugs. During this time, I sought out many different healing methods, and eventually 20 years later, I met someone who suggested I discontinue eating grains.

Three months later, all my symptoms disappeared and I have not had a single flare-up or attack now 21 years later.

In the process of healing, decades of research, experimenting with food and exercise has been invaluable. If I had known how easy it could have been, many years of suffering would have been avoided.

Even today, the scientific literature has not caught up with the simplicity of how easy it can be to eliminate the suffering of gout flares and attacks, in part because the solution is variable depending on the genetics of the patient. Not all foods are inflammatory for all people, but some foods are inflammatory for most people that manifest a compromise to our health.

Not everyone is the right fit for my coaching program. After working with many clients, I’ve discovered that I work best with clients who are really and truly ready to claim the results they say that they want. I’m honored to guide you from where you are to where you want to be and provide just the right mixture of hand holding and compassionate ass-kicking.

Your metabolic age can be lowered by food and lifestyle choices to increase your health span, or total years of being healthy. Metabolic age is a measure of the efficiency of your metabolism compared to average efficiency. Lowering your metabolic age is predictive of your health span or total years of being healthy, not just squeaking by.

It matters less if you live to 130 if the last 40 years are spent in hospice care. How you care for yourself in mid life will determine the quality of the rest of your life.

Together we can discover the necessary steps to experience radiant health, while maintaining the fulfillment of delicious food.
