A MESSAGE FROM CANDIA LEA COLE
"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 "Eco-Conscious 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 nourishes wellness in their 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 wonderful lessons I've learned about how to support personal health and planetary well-being.
In my view, there's not person or living thing walking the face of the earth that isn't dealing with one form or another of environmental illness. The reason I say this is because toxins of all sorts have been bio-accumulating in the environment and in our bodies for many years. They are actually passed down from one generation to the next!
If you, or someone that you care about is suffering with health issues, you owe it to your selves to health to explore the role that toxins may be playing in their development.
Below, I invite you to learn about the plethora of educational tools that I've created for you, your family, and the community you care about!
