Welcome! I'm Jody Anderson, a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, nurse, health coach and community activator.
I am passionate about helping others reach their goals and SUCCEED at achieving their highest level of health and well-being.
Throughout my nursing career, I have had the opportunity to carry out my passion and purpose for helping others. One of the greatest rewards is seeing my patients heal and get well. For much of my nursing career, I took care of the sick in hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, administering medications, treatments, and assisting with interventions. I became frustrated with healthcare, and the amount of time is spent focusing on a disease itself, rather than the whole person. I always knew there was more to helping patients heal, than just medicines and procedures. The body has an innate ability to heal itself and flourish, especially with the care and support of the body, mind and spirit.
I have a deep concern for our flawed healthcare system. It is a system of sick-care with rising costs and rising rates of disease and risk factors. You don’t need statistics, charts and graphs to see how unhealthy our nation is. Much of it you can see with your own eyes- obesity, chronic stress, physical inactivity, drug, tobacco, and alcohol abuse, lack of sleep, as well as social and financial inequity. However, what we cannot see is everyone’s story.
Transforming my career through health coaching has allowed me to work closely with individuals, hear their stories, and recognize them for their unique qualities. A person is not just a lab value, measurement, or disease process. We are all whole-beings, greater than and more complex than the sum of our parts!
I am compelled to help others. It is my calling, and I believe in the work I am called to do each day. This is a labor of love and of caring for others. I have learned so much from my patients and clients about the will of the human spirit, and how each and every one of us has a gift to share, no matter how small.
My practice focuses on a person's unique needs and
bio-individuality, guiding individuals on a path to self-care and lifestyle improvements.
Key elements to my healing philosophy are:
Self-care as an intervention.
Lifestyle as medicine.
Nourishment for the Body, Mind and Spirit!
I work with clients to help them develop a deeper understanding of what impacts their health and well-being, and how they can overcome obstacles and reach their goals. Whether it's weight loss, managing stress, eating healthier, or improving your energy, I provide the support and guidance you need to SUCCEED!
My call to action:
Try not to worry so much about the things in life that you cannot change, and start working on the things that you can! We can all find something to improve upon in our lives. What is the first thing that comes to mind for you? If we focus our attention on creating a vision for better health we can empower one another to work toward outcomes defined by the possibilities, instead of the problems. What great things could happen because of one simple change? The possibilities are endless, and it all begins with taking that first step! Please join me on a journey to transform your body, mind and spirit with Succeed Health!
