Hi, I am Deb Pomeroy, the Pure Good Health Coach. I wasn’t always this health conscious. My mindset was, that if you were thin, you were healthy. In College, I joined the Freshman Fifteen Club by eating fast food and late nights. The struggles and success with my own health have been an evolution. Looking back, I can honestly say my entire life has been a journey in the pursuit of health.
Then in 2001 my mother was diagnosed with Stage 3c Ovarian Cancer.
She lost her fight with Cancer in 2009 at the age of 64.
At that point, my mission to get to the bottom of my own health issues and use my knowledge to help others. From the outside, I looked like your typical healthy person; eating right, working out, muscular etc. Even on paper I looked good: normal cholesterol, heart rate and blood pressure levels. But, I struggled with Fibromyalgia that caused much muscular aches and pain. I struggled with anxiety, sleep problems and fatigue. Not long after my diagnosis of Fibromyalgia, I began my health-coaching journey by becoming an Integrative Health Coach with IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition) and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) Practitioner through FDN. I was inspired to enroll in this program to help all my clients who were struggling with weight loss 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 health. Through this program, I learned a whole new way of looking at disease and health, from a functional and causal level.
When I started digging deeper
I found A LOT of hormone imbalances and gut dysfunction…
…in myself and my clients. It was like finding the mythical fountain of youth!!!
So I set out on my true health journey. It’s more about just working out and eating right “most” of the time. It’s been a lifestyle shift. I work-out in a way that’s best for me, I put the right kinds of foods in my body, I’ve minimized toxins in my environment (and continue to do so), I take time for myself, and I’ve been working on healing my gut.
This journey has been hard at times,
Inspiring at times, and above all educational when it comes to learning about what my body needs.
Now as a FDN Practitioner I run all kinds of simple, at-home lab tests for my clients so we can take a deeper look at their health to figure out what’s holding them back from living their fullest life with their ideal health and weight. The biggest lesson I teach my clients is that your health is a journey that will change direction as you learn more and you will evolve with it, so don’t get frustrated just hold space for patience and the potential for change.
