Melanie Truesdale

Hi, I’m Melanie, certified health coach. I help women caregivers who want to prevent/combat chronic stress and health issues due to lifestyle. I specialize in taking a whole food plant based approach to help my clients achieve optimal physical and mental well being. I’m certified as a master health coach with the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and certified professional plant based cook with the Rouxbe Culinary School.


Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition

I chose to embark on a health coaching career after successfully overcoming my own personal health challenges. The toll of caregiving for many years for multiple family members led me to total burnout and the beginnings of many chronic health diseases. Adopting a whole food plant based diet, regular exercise, and a choosing to have a healthier mindset has helped me to reverse my health issues and prevent many health challenges that come with caregiving.

Scientific research has shown how diet, movement and managing stress are powerful means to nourish and heal the body, as well as prevent many chronic diseases. I specialize in taking a whole food plant based approach to weight loss and combating chronic preventable health challenges due to stress and lifestyle. I would like to help women understand how lifestyle choices have a tremendous effect on the quality of their lives as well as their families, and the role that diet, exercise and stress management play in achieving the unique daily work-life balance that women face. I enjoy helping my clients achieve optimal wellness and discover how to feed and nourish their bodies and minds, and feel renewed and energized to take back and enjoy their lives.

In my spare time I love cooking and dancing. It relaxes me and allows me to express my creativity. I love transforming animal based product recipes into plant based healthier versions and sharing them with friends and family. I also enjoy spending time in community based volunteer work and helping people with disabilities.
