My name is Tracie Hittman Fountain, MS, and I’m a nutritional consultant with a plan for eating that boosts your energy and heals your body. Whether you want to lose weight, have better health, or address thyroid/adrenal issues, my eating plan will help.
I became passionate about the science of nutrition in college when as an elite athlete, I experienced life-altering health issues, most notably endometriosis and thyroid problems. So, you see, I know what it feels like. I know what it feels like to have no energy, digestive problems, an irregular, painful menstrual cycle, weight problems…I could go on and on.
I experienced considerable pain, had major surgery and took medications that sent me into early menopause with horrible side effects, including up to 20 hot flashes a day, menstrual disruption, and lethargy. I rode the roller coaster ride through traditional and alternative medicine and I know how difficult it is to get your health back after it takes a turn for the worse.
After 7 years, I found myself exhausted, still sick, and heavy, gaining 35 pounds in the midst of various treatments with little to no relief. Here I was in the “prime” of my life and I’d never felt worse. It felt like my body had been taken captive and no one seemed to know what to do next or have the answers to the reasons for why I was suffering.
I began to realize that if I wanted my life back, I would have to somehow take a different route if I wanted to get to the bottom of my health issues. Through independent research and study, I discovered amazing insights into health and healing that sent my life and interests in a completely different direction physically, emotionally, spiritually and academically. I went on to earn a Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University and became a certified life coach through the Christian Coach Institute.
So, if you’re not feeling your very best, you’ve come to the right place. I know what it feels like firsthand to not feel well and struggle with being overweight…but I found great health again through a combination of scientific research, whole food nutrition, lifestyle changes and an amazing spiritual journey I also discovered along the way that real “health” means feeling well from the inside out. It’s about more than just food. In fact, I have found it is more about our thought life, managing stress, forgiveness and letting go of things in our lives that are keeping us from moving forward. It’s about finding a sense of inner peace and joy, where anxiety, depression and fear no longer reign. It’s about living the life we desire and were intended to have.
I’ve spent the last 10 years helping people eat good food, build healthier bodies and lead better lives. My program will benefit anyone with a desire to live more healthfully and purposefully. My approach is practical, yet compassionate, from personal experience. I believe each of us has a destiny and purpose, and mine is to help “set the captives free.” Together, let’s get to the root of your weight and health issues by discovering what’s holding you back from the life you want to have. It’s time to change your plate AND your life!
Yours for better health,
