Welcome to Healthy Heathen. My name is Heather Griffith, and I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach specializing in guiding people on their own journey to overall health.
My personal journey to health and happiness began several years ago. I was an extremely overweight, overstressed and under active working mother of three. I never took the time to take care of myself, and it was obvious. After years of living completely miserable with what I have become, I decided it all had to change. I had tried as many diets as you could possibly think of, but nothing was permanent. I took a long hard look at myself and knew the answers all along. It was all within me. I needed to breakthrough the barriers that were holding me back emotionally, and start listening to my body, and give it the love, attention and nutrients it was lacking.
Changes take time, and mine was no exception. But it frightens me to think that if I would have not taken that first step, if I would have never started, I would have never found my happiness. The more I listened to my body, and changed my thinking, the more I transformed. I lost over 100 pounds, began exercising and achieving goals I never thought were possible. I trained for and completed several 100 mile bike rides, half marathons, and even a full marathon last year.
I became inspired to share my success with others as an example of what could be done, if you only started believing. I decided that if I were going to be completely happy, I needed to take my new found passion to a new level, I needed to make a career. Helping others, help themselves is my main goal in life.
I have graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and am registered with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
