About Dr. Jody:
My passion for helping others achieve optimal well-being stems from my success in overcoming the health challenges of living with Type 1 diabetes since the age of seven. One of the benefits of living with this condition for the past 30 years is that optimal nutrition and regular exercise have always been an integral part of my life. One of my core beliefs is everything that happens in one’s life is a teacher, full of rich opportunities for personal growth. Even when the lessons are hard to see, they’re there. Whatever challenges you may present to me, this empowering perspective is a key element that I will incorporate into working with you, along your path to optimizing your health.
Having grown up in the Seattle area, I have been an avid outdoor enthusiast my entire life. Hiking, snow skiing, water skiing, biking, and practicing yoga are the activities I enjoy most for keeping my body fit and healthy. The first thing I do as soon as I get out of bed is put my exercise clothes on. This ensures I’ll start my day by moving my body and enjoying the great burst of energy & serotonin that exercise freely gives to all. Exercise is one of the best ‘medicines’ on the planet!
I also have a passion for continually expanding my mind regarding the myriad of ways humans can and do chose to live their lives, via visiting foreign cultures. I traveled throughout Europe while living in Italy in 1993, backpacked throughout Australia in 1997, and worked with patients from all over the world at an elite health resort in Thailand in 2008.
This latter experience led me to realize that when people are out of touch with what they love about life and are lacking experiencing joy on a regular basis, no amount of money nor treatment regime will bring them the optimal health they are truly hungry for. This revelation inspired me to write a book to address this issue.
Readers will not only be inspired by my own personal story, where I share the joy and pain involved in achieving my personal dreams, but I also hope to inspire you, to follow your own dreams. Click here to order. It will be a great read, if I do say so myself!
