Dr. Philomina Gwanfogbe (Dr. Philo) founded the Food, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach, LLC in 2007. She is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). She was trained as a holistic health coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® (IIN), the greatest nutrition school in the world. With an extensive experience and interest in the field of nutrition and health, she works as a Nutrition Specialist and Epidemiology Specialist with the State of Missouri, United Sates. At the international level,she worked as a Research Officer in nutrition and health for the Center for Nutrition, Ministry of Higher Education in Cameroon.

Dr. Philo has a Ph.D. in Foods and Nutrition with a major in community public health nutrition from Kansas State University, Manhattan, and a Master of Science in Public Health with a major in Nutrition from Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana. She was awarded a Diploma of University Studies (Diplôme D'Etudes Supérieures) in Biochemistry and a Bachelor of Science degree (Licence) in Biological Chemistry from Yaoundé University, Cameroon. Dr. Philo is a Certified Lymphologist, certified by the International Academy of Lymphology and a member of the International Association for Health Coaches (IAHC).

Drawing on this knowledge and experience, she works with you to develop a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, and preferences. She works on one-on-one and in groups via the phone or Skype. She works with you as you are ready to take charge of your health, seek to understand and provide your body with appropriate nourishment, with the understanding that there is no One-size-fits-all way of eating and lifestyle.

As a Holistic Health Coach, she guides and supports you in navigating the world of contradictory nutrition and health advice to determine what changes in foods, nutrition and lifestyles are necessary and appropriate for you. She supports you to put into action what works and eliminate what does not work, effortlessly, by providing you with healthy food, nutrition and lifestyle options.

She strongly believes that providing your body with healthy foods and lifestyles (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and relationship) activates the body into the miraculous, self-healing machine that it was created to be. This results in significant weight loss, improved health, and, ultimately, the prevention or reversal of chronic health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, digestive disorders, migraines, depression, arthritis, cancer, chronic pain and other diseases.

According to Dr. Philo, you do not have to wait until you are told that you are pre-diabetic, pre-hypertensive , you need knee surgery, hip replacement, or have this or that cancer or start feeling pains, before taking care of your health. The earlier you start taking charge of your overall health the more benefit you get out of life – live a high quality life with vibrant health and age gracefully.

As your personal Holistic Health Coach, I am committed to guide and support you to improve your overall health and energy level as well as PREVENT chronic health conditions. May you never know what you PREVENT.
