HELLO, AND WELCOME TO MY SITE!
"Are You Ready to Eat Clean, Live Green, and Nourish Your Relationship with your Body and the Earth?"
My name is Candia Lea Cole, and I'm known within the holistic health community as "The Eco-Conscious Cook" & "The Eco-Intelligent Lifestyle Mentor." I create educational tools that support individuals, families, and wellness educators in learning about about (and teaching others about) how to nourish wellness in their bodies and the earth. My educational tools (including books, courses, infographics, videos, and podcasts) represent the fertile outgrowth of my life-long experience with environmental illness, including the beautiful and empowering lessons about health and healing that have grown out of it.
In today's world, a world that has become increasingly toxic due to our disconnection from nature's wisdom for living well, millions of people are now developing the symptoms of environmental illness. Conditions such as birth defects, reproductive health issues, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, asthma, autism, and cancer, are but a few examples of conditions that develop in the body as the result of carrying a toxic body burden. If you, or someone that you care about, is suffering with these kinds of health issues, you owe it to yourselves to explore the importance of consuming whole foods nutrition, utilizing natural earth-sourced medicine, and adopting a clean,green lifestyle!
