Meet Kathryn Chess

She is passionate about empowering her clients to feel good in their bodies and to discover their most joyful and happy life.

Before working with me, many of my clients settle for a life where they feel numb and are just trudging through their day, feeling like crap. I feel their pain because I’ve been there!    – Kathryn Chess

Her Own Experience Inspires Her Passion


At 33, I was a fat, frumpy, burned-out widow. My 60 hour-a-week sales job kept me busy by day and my energetic young son had me spinning at night. I was tired, achy and feeling like I had a giant hole in my heart. I went on a mission to find a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Diagnosed with chronic fatigue, high blood sugar levels and an autoimmune thyroid condition, I rejected my doctor’s recommended cure of a pharmaceutical cocktail of Prozac, birth control and thyroid medication. I was desperate for relief and sought help from some of the best alternative medicine doctors.

It was a long journey, but I learned how put myself in the driver’s seat, listen to my intuition and bring my body back to balance. Using the most effective remedies from alternative therapies, at 54 I am in better health today than I was when I was 20!                                                                                                                                           

Today, Kathryn continues her lifelong journey of training and education, researching the latest foods, supplements, and techniques for achieving health and happiness.
