Welcome to A Vibrant Balance
My name is Patricia Terrell
My journey to becoming a Holistic Health Coach has not been a straight line or in a timely fashion. In 1994 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and was told it would be a life-long condition that would require taking medication to keep it in check. I wasn't too keen on that idea so I started doing research and experimenting. I began experimenting with different diets, different supplements and ways of moving my body. I added in enzymes, probiotics, blue green algae, various vitamins, removed most of the animal products I was consuming and most importantly began eating more whole foods. I also began doing Qigong, Tai-Chi and meditation. Within 2 years I was no longer experiencing any symptoms and had gained back the weight I had lost - I started to feel human again! I continued to work with my diet and eventually chose to eat a vegan and gluten free diet. At the moment this is the diet that works best for me.
Over the years what I've learned is; it's not only the food you eat, but how you live your life. How we deal with stress, move our bodies, and show up in life, makes a huge impact.
As I navigated through my own journey of restoring my health I also began to pursue the idea of learning how to help people make a difference in their lives through diet, movement and making healthy lifestyle changes. There is a saving; "Change the Yourself and Change the World." I firmly believe once we change within we can be the change agents in the world. I want to help people become the "Vibrant Beings" they truly are - in all aspects of their lives.
As a Health Coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands - where it belongs!

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.

We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
