Michael Jackson, CHC
Please welcome Michael Jackson CHC, a former banker, who pursued a career in health and wellness after 25 years in business management. Jackson, a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, states, “I’m a recovering workaholic! My engine was overheated and it was about to blow! I needed to find balance in my life. It took a medical setback to slow me down enough to refocus and learn how to take better care of my mind and body. I made a complete lifestyle change. I set out to learn all that I could about how to take better care of myself and those around me. I became determined to spend the rest of my life educating myself and others about wellness matters from a natural and practical approach that could be applied in daily life, by everyone, therefore preventing many unnecessary illness such as obesity and heart disease.”
Now, as a certified health coach, Jackson shares ways in which clients can use food as medicine to improve their health. Jackson says, “Health is Wealth! Good nutrition, from the beginning of time has been the key ingredient to living well. Somehow we really got off track! By establishing good habits, we can play a necessary role in creating a healthier environment for those within our communities.Also, as we become healthier, we contribute to helping reduce hospital visits, relieving a bit of the pressure placed on our healthcare providers.”Click here to schedule an appointment today!
