A MESSAGE FROM CANDIA LEA
"Are You Ready to Live Green and Eat Clean?"
Welcome to my website. My name is Candia Lea Cole, and I'm known within the holistic health community as "The Eco-Intelligent Lifestyle Mentor" and the "Consciousness Raising Cook."
I create educational tools that support individuals, families, and wellness educators in learning about about (and teaching others about) how to live in a clean, green, sustainable way that invites harmony and balance between our bodies and the earth.
My interest in developing educational tools that support clean, green living is the result of my life long experience with environmental illness, including the lessons I've learned about what causes it, and how to manage and heal its symptoms.
In today's world, there's not person or living thing alive (in my view) that does not have one form or another of environmental illness. I say this because we are all exposed to thousands of chemical toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, the medications we use, and the lifestyle products we use, and our bodies are not equipped to handle the burden they place on our human ecology system!
If you (or someone you care about) is dealing with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, allergies, hormonal issues, digestive issues, or even mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, autism, and/or learning/behavioral challenges, you owe it to yourself to find the root cause of your symptoms, so you can create a lifestyle that can supports you in alleviating them!
Below, I invite you to learn about the bounty of learning/teaching tools that I've created for you, which offer to support you, your family, and your community on your quest for wellness!

Farming & Eating the Eco-Intelligent Way — A 21st century nutrition curriculum that is grounded in an approach to eating that is "eco-intelligent."

I offer this book as part of my Eco-Intelligent Eating Advocate Training.
