Kevin is a certified Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach, and Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200 hr). He lives in southern New Hampshire with his amazing wife and their two rescues. Kevin’s journey that led him to help others achieve a healthier life started with his very own health challenges.
When he was about 30 years old he was on medication for high blood pressure, had back pain, muscle spasms, brain fog, was full of stress & anxiety, and felt like he was just coasting through his days. The only thing he was sure of at the time was his deep love for his wife. He was told by his doctor that he would probably have to take high blood pressure medication for the rest of his life.
That really stuck with him. It didn’t sit right at all. His intuition was telling him that there was an imbalance in his body, mind, and soul. He just knew that there were underlying issues that were causing all of these things to happen like this. He felt like medication would only mask those issues.
He started doing yoga for his back pain and was opened up to what felt like a whole new world, but now reconnected with his soul. His love for yoga led him to deepen his practice and he became a certified yoga teacher. Yoga opened up the door for him to learn about Ayurveda, an ancient and traditional system of India that uses a holistic approach to health - caring for the body, mind, and soul. It took some time, but he learned what it meant to eat nourishing, cleansing, and healing foods for his specific soul and body. Over time, as he listened more to his body, became more aware of how his body responded to certain foods, and through studying and research, he started eating predominantly wholesome, plant based foods. Since late 2021 this has been his diet. Eating predominantly whole, plant based foods has shown to help treat, prevent, and even in some cases reverse chronic illnesses. Not to mention that the longest living people in the world, those in the Blue Zones, live by it.
This holistic approach and his shift in nutrition resulted in Kevin getting off his blood pressure medication, being free of back pain, and knowing how to manage stress and anxiety. Having gone through it himself, he doesn’t want others to have to feel lost, stuck, or confused when it comes to their health. Like him he wishes others to be able to stop illness in its tracks before it goes too far or help prevent it in the first place. More importantly he wishes others the ability to have peace of mind when it comes to their health so they can focus on living in the present moment and enjoying their life. He studied and became certified in holistic nutrition to further his knowledge and to work with clients on a holistic approach to help them build the foundation for a healthier diet and lifestyle to help address their heart health conditions. To also help set them up for a sustainable healthier life, not a “quick fix.”
Kevin loves tending to his garden, going for a good walk or hike, golfing, and spending lots of time out connecting with nature. Being by the water, in the woods, and listening to the wind in the trees are some of his favorite things. He typically starts his day with a mindfulness ritual to help him stay grounded, present, and centered as he sets his intentions for the day. He loves a good workout and a great physical yoga session. Most of all he loves spending time with his wife and their two rescues. They absolutely love to cook and grow their own food. They make everything in their house from scratch with mostly fresh, local, and organically grown ingredients. They have a strong passion for understanding where our food comes from, how it is grown, and how it impacts our health and the planet. Kevin believes his purpose right now is to be a positive force to help support others in their quest to live a healthier, natural, more mindful and joyful life.
