Hello, I’m Grazia Miglietta, a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and AADP certified Holistic Health Practitioner and in charge of my holistic health. Although I was always attracted by, and interested in health, I wasn’t always this health conscious. I used to think that I was eating well, very rarely eating processed foods, not often going to restaurants, and eating mostly home cooked food, lots of vegetables and fruits, avoiding artificial chemicals and more. I can honestly say my entire life has been a journey in the pursuit of health, or at least this is what we think we do. I believe this is probably true for all of us, but the journey for some can be a struggle to survive, and for others it is a drive to thrive. I'd be the first to admit it’s been a work in progress. The struggles and successes with my own health have been an evolution. At a young age I started having excruciating migraines. In my early 30's, I began gaining weight and developed autoimmune diseases that kept increasing, along with energy deficiency. Modern medicine failed me, as no reversal or root cause was provided. Solely symptom management, that wasn't exactly what I was looking for. I was told that immunosuppresants might be necessary later on. I knew that wasn't right. We need our immune system. I've heard over and over again that having the immune system suppressed was fine, and nutrition doesn't really matter. This was very frustrating as I was noticing the underlying progression of diseases. Although my original educational and work background are not related to health, I kept reading, studying and making research in the hope of finding something that made sense and provided real results, not just covering the symptoms. Being a very aware person with an inquisitive mind, I couldn't believe that there is no possibility to rebuild our health, although we are developing in so many sectors. On one hand, the western world's population is living longer, but at what price, since the vast majority has multiple chronic illnesses. I have learned though to take back my personal power and as a result, have developed a passion to help others do the same. Years pass by and my health kept deteriorating despite all my efforts, studies and courses in natural medicine such as Essential oils, Energy Healing, Herbalism and more. I’ve also minimized toxins in my environment (and continue to do so).
I decided to become a Holistic Health Coach. First I took the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition's (FDN) Mastering Metabolic Chaos course, and continued with the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner course. I was inspired to enroll in this program to help those who are struggling with health issues, even though they were eating right and working out (I knew there had to be something more stopping them from getting results) and to help myself improve my well-being. Through this program, I learned a whole new way of looking at disease and health, from a functional and causal level.
So I set out on my true health journey. It’s been a lifestyle shift. I take time for myself, and I’ve been working on healing my gut. Healthy gut is paramount for the whole body health, especially since the gut brain connection provides us with optimal results. In fact, I started regaining my energy and mind clarity. Until then, I was hearing of, and suffering from, brain fog but couldn't find a solution.
Now as a FDN-P and HHP, I take a deeper look at health issues to figure out what’s holding someone back from living their fullest life with an ideal health and weight. My suggestion to everyone is: your health is a journey that will change direction as you learn more and you will evolve with it, so don’t get frustrated. Instead put consistent effort, be patient, focus on your gains, have a vision of your ideal self, and be open to the potential of change.
You too can live a healthier life - the one you’ve always dreamed of, filled with gratitude, empowerment and joy. I am so excited to be your guide in this journey of discovery.
If you’re tired of being tired all the time, if you're sick of being sick, you don’t feel like yourself in your own skin and suspect that something just isn’t right with your body but can’t find the right doctor or practitioner who meets all your needs, then I’m here to help! I’d love to chat more and see how I can support and empower you to regain your Holistic Health and Thrive! Health can be enjoyable and sustainable.
