What is Metabolic Health Coaching, Holistic Nutrition Natasha's experience & qualifications ?
Holistic Nutrition is the study of one’s whole lifestyle and how habits such as eating, exercise, and daily routine can affect one’s health in a positive or negative manner. It is not a “one size fits all” quick fix. It examines overall health and perspective to define what healthy means on an individual level. Building and maintaining health is a gradual process with long-term results that can exceed expectations and improve quality of life in unlimited ways.
A Metabolic Health Coach describes an ongoing working relationship where the "Coach" works to get to know the individual and they work together to build on strengths and move through limitations. This is why progams are done on monthly basis instead of one off sessions. Build rapport and trust can make deep change more possible, leading to a healthier lifestyle instead of just getting on a diet.

What can I expect from working with Vaz Wellness?
Natasha Vaz will encourage you to find the answer to “What does healthy look like to me?” in a way that suits your life. Although no positive change comes without inconvenience, you will not be alone in this process.
You will get weekly measurable feedback guidance and someone to hold you accountable until you are able to hold yourself accountable. You will be given the tools for short-term change and long-term results. Natasha can also help you implement from your other healthcare practitioners and help you build your own wellness team.
What are some of the benefits of diet change?
The chance to feel like the best possible version of yourself. Just like we don’t have to tell our bodies to breathe, to fix a scratch, or to digest–your body has everything it needs to heal as long as we give it the right tools and reduce hindering habits.
Other benefits can include increased energy and drive, more mobility, better sleep, better body awareness, clearer thinking and sharper focus, reduced inflammation, and better digestion.
What are some of the struggles I may uncover?
We often take comfort in our habits and patterns. They have been like longtime friends–always there for us no matter how we show up for ourselves. Positive results require positive change and this can initially create some inconveniences. You will have to have a conversation with some of these patterns and habits to realize which ones are still helping you and which are hindering.
Although necessary, it may be uncomfortable. The good news is you can do it if your will to change and heal is stronger than your will to stay the same or digress.
How do I get the most out of this program?
By being gentle with yourself, patient and carving out time on a daily basis to make improvements. The more time you dedicate to change, the more you receive. Just like putting time into the gym or effort into writing an article–the more you put in, the more you get back.
How will I be supported through this process?
Since holistic nutrition is about the individual, Natasha will take the time to explain how this process works for you. Every week you will have one on one coaching session, a customized feedback form with weekly strategies to break things down into easy steps. You will also receive email support and direct chat response during standard business hours.
When your program begins, you will receive a personalized guide that outlines your plan. It is complete with recipes, supplement recommendations, recipes, meal plans, links to resources and guides for further learning. You will be surprised with how good you can feel.
