Kim Schultz-Ferrentino, CHHC, AADP,
Owner & Founder, Dynamic Health 101
Independant Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and moved to the East Coast to raise my children near my husband's "big Italian" family. I spent my early years always feeling tired, fatigued and challenged with learning disabilities. Each year I struggled with the feeling that I was being left behind and incapable of reaching my potential. After the birth of my children I could no longer just drudge through each day and kept feeling worse and worse with insomnia, undiagnosable chronic pain, brain fog and lack of energy and motivation. Finally, I knew something had to change or I end up living the life of a crippled 80 year old or worse. After searching for answers from various conventional and alternative doctors, I came to discover that with the right foods and supplements my health could finally improve and I am continually feeling younger and more rejuvenated each day. I can finally cherish the gift of life and want to share it with others.
Through proper nutrition, exercise, Essential Oils and a knowledge of whole foods, I now have energy, health and vitality and feel better than I ever have before. During this transformation, my passion for health and nutrition grew and my desire to help others feel and look amazing has become my mission in life.
I feel very blessed to have learned all about nutritional and alternative medicines because both of the daughters were born with chronic, severe acid reflux and horrific colic. At that time, I didn't know any better and began raising them on the SAD diet (Standard American Diet). Our hearts broke when we discovered years later that our children's chronic illness, sore throats, strep, nightmares, fevers and stomach pains were related to their undiagnosed Celiac Disease. Then we discovered my oldest daughter had an additional autoimmune disorder called, P.A.N.D.A.S. This crazy disease causes her antibodies to attack the neurons in her brain when it believes it is under attack from the strep bacteria. Once that happened...batten down the hatches...we were in for a storm of behavioral problems including ticking, O.C.D.s, Tourette like behaviors, panic, phobias, severe deficiency and/or rage. These behaviors would come and go and we thought our daughter was being possessed by demons. Through nutrition and essential oils, my children today are happy, healthy and are enjoying every moment life gifts them.
I am a Board Certified Health Coach and Holistic Nutritionist from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition (IIN), Suny University, NYC and member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I am also a very proud Young Living Essential Distributor. My happiest moments are when I can help another person make even the simplest change to improving their health, the health of their child or helping the community.
I have now devoted my life to helping other's feel good and preventing disease and illness. I do this in my Wellness Practice and Health Coaching, Introducing Essential Oils, Workshops, Seminars, Webinars and Community Service providing healthy cooking, nutritional and essential oil knowledg. I hope you enjoy my website and contact me today so together we can begin your journey on the path to empowered wellness. Thank you!
