Welcome to the podcast! Today I’m very excited to be joined by Venessa Rodriguez. Venessa is a certified holistic and integrative nutrition coach, practicing functional nutrition. That means she uses food as medicine and creates a roadmap to better digestion, more energy and healthy weight management that’s totally unique to YOU.
Her path to integrative nutrition and holistic health began when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005. That’s when she truly witnessed the healing power of nutritious foods and a well-balanced lifestyle. After 5 long years of treatments, triumphs, ups, and downs… she lost her beautiful mom Norma. It was the most difficult and transformative time in their lives, and it taught her more than she could ever imagine.
Her mom's journey taught Venessa that we are the stewards of our own health and must be our own advocates; that food truly is medicine; that positivity, happiness, and love are more potent healing tools than anything else; that every day truly is precious so we better live like we mean it; and that we can’t do it alone.
