About

davidpiken.wordpress.comAbout me? I’m a health nut…not in the sense that I eat “perfect” and exercise all the time and never do anything “fun.” I know a lot about living a healthy lifestyle.

I’m really just a normal guy and I do most of the things everyone else does. I use the same excuses, I like the same food and I’m sometimes guilty of not doing as I say.”
Overall I like to be active, I like to eat pretty clean. I spent an entire year tracking what I ate, I didn’t drink alcohol, eat sugar or refined foods. I did some other things. I learned to make yogurt and dehydrate fruit. I cooked a lot and spent lots of time preparing food. I have never felt better in my entire life than I did during that year.
I had amazing energy, I slept like a rock, I didn’t get sick, my skin was as clear. I noticed things I didn’t think I would notice like my finger nails hardened, my senses improved, not to mention the medical benefits of lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and weight loss. I generally experienced a level of vitality that I hadn’t known previously. Since that time, life has changed and I am not quite as disciplined as I was then but I am happy and I live a healthy lifestyle.
When I work with clients, I take a realistic approach to help them figure out how wellness can fit in to their lives to help them reach their wellness goals. I feel lucky to be able to help people achieve things they never thought they would or could and it gives me great pleasure to watch them learn and grow.
