Joanne (Jojo) Llaury-MarksMaster Certified Health Coach
Due to the long hours and strict deadlines at work, juggling children’s schedules, PTA mom activities, being a chauffeur, cook, and eating out frequently, it caused me to experience a number of health issues. I even developed stroke like symptoms which was extremely concerning. In addition, my youngest daughter was experiencing food sensitivities and I felt so overwhelmed with the information I found online that I did not how to help her and myself successfully or even where to start. These concerns really made me evaluate my health and the choices I was making for the health of my family.
I was introduced to the Real Food approach and put into place what I had learned. The better understanding of how our bodies worked, why we eat the way we do, how to avoid or completely eliminate flare us, and many other successes really motivated me to share the knowledge and experiences with others. This decision has made such an amazing impact in my life and those that I’ve shared the functional method with. All over the world, people are looking to live healthier & happier. Join the global wellness movement and get inspired and receive support on your journey!
When I’m not coaching, I am either spending time with my family outside, horseback riding, gardening, teaching Zumba, or participating in women’s events at our local church.
Let food be thy medicine & medicine be thy food.
The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with NUTRITION.
