Owner & Operator Body & Soul Health Coaching B.A., B.Ed., INHC, BCHHP
Donnalyn Murphy’s knowledge of health and nutrition began with many years of self-study, first in an attempt to help her body deal with various health challenges, and second, with the goal of raising a healthy family. As she witnessed herself vibrantly living a life very different from her doctors’ negative prognosis, and as she observed the development of her active and very healthy children, she knew she had information the world needed. Seeking credentials, and to further her knowledge, she enrolled in The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City where she learned from the best of the best in health, nutrition, functional and integrative medicine. Donnalyn is now a Board Certified Health Coach and a proud iHeart Ambassador!
A two time graduate of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada before that, Donnalyn taught elementary school for the Upper Canada District School Board in Eastern Ontario, a job she loved, but, sadly, could no longer perform, given her declining health.
Donnalyn’s mission has become teaching people of all ages the power they have over the circumstances in which they find themselves, with simple, easy to sustain, pleasant and lasting, diet and lifestyle modifications. Her philosophy is based upon the fact that food really does matter, but is only one variable, and that many of the diseases plaguing our society need not occur, if only people knew what to do and why it matters so much. Prevention is key!
Donnalyn coaches clients privately by Skype, or from a distance with a once a week, by email, independent program. Donnalyn is very pleased to also share information from her free smartphone app, Baby Steps to a Healthier You at Google Play for Androids and Baby Steps to a Healthier, Happier You at The App Store for iPhones. All Donnalyn’s programs are designed to Lower or Maintain Physiological Age and Skyrocket Health and Happiness while offering the level of support with which clients are most comfortable. She also presents to groups on various health and lifestyle topics.
Clients experience immeasurable benefits including a reduction in physiological age, improved health, weight loss, more energy, a healthier family, improved quality of life and tremendous knowledge by examining, and slowly reshaping, diet and lifestyle habits. Corporate clients also reduce physiological age while increasing productivity and becoming a healthier workforce, requiring fewer sick days and healthcare dollars, which creates a much more pleasant work environment.
