Michelle Breau is a Holistic Nutritionist (RHNP), Online Business Coach, and host of GROWradio, the podcast. She believes that lifestyle medicine is the way of the future, and she aims to educate and inspire those with the desire for a deeper understanding of how to use it. As a coach for wellness entrepreneurs, her goal is to educate fellow practitioners on how to build their business, connect with more clients, and to create a quantum leap in the direction of a healthier, happier world.
Michelle's journey to wellness began after high school when she struggled with both skin and digestive issues. She began researching ways to heal her body naturally, and realized her passion for Nutrition while sharing what she was learning with others. She has since completed her diploma in Nutrition from ICS Canada, her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training, and her advanced diploma in Holistic Nutrition with Nutraphoria School of Holistic Nutrition.
Throughout her time in school, Michelle also worked in a clinic setting as a Naturopathic Health Advisor, supporting those dealing with various ailments naturally. She then went on to start a small coaching practice where she helped hundreds of people to lose weight and find joy in the journey to their healthiest, happiest selves.
In 2016 while in the hospital having her son Nathan, Michelle contracted an infection which caused a severe gut imbalance. While doctor's struggled to find a diagnosis, things became life threatening with her spleen, liver and kidneys showing signs of acute injury. After spending nearly a year and a half seeking a diagnosis through conventional medicine, she decided to fully embrace the holistic route. She eventually found a practitioner who was able to begin putting the pieces together on the first visit, and the process of healing continues to this day. This experience only served to deepen Michelle's desire to support others who want to take their health into their own hands, and it was the driving force behind her decision to specialize in two of the most essential areas of health that are often overlooked - digestive health and detoxification.
After all - Hippocrates once said, “All disease begins in the gut.”
Michelle believes that all health begins there, too.
