About Rachel Tamilio
The Story That Started It All
“Crisis and Transformation”
Rachel faced a pivotal time of life in 2004, at the young age of 30. It was a moment no one wants to experience. “You have cancer,” the doctor said. Having been chronically ill since youth, Rachel let a series of red flags wave on unnoticed until it was almost too late.
Mercifully, she survived a grueling period of aggressive chemotherapy, followed by radiation therapy. On the heels of a crisis like that, Rachel knew that life had to look a lot different going forward.
It started with learning everything she could about everything from nutrition to every day products that cause toxicity in the body. While she didn’t set out to do “health coaching,” her first client, (we will call her Elaine), changed her lifestyle completely and lost 60 pounds in one year. She began to look at grocery shopping as an adventure into the unknown as she experimented with new ways to prep and cook healthy foods. In 6 months, Elaine felt healthier and had more energy than she had in decades.
After (barely surviving) 6 months of aggressive chemotherapy, 20 days of radiation and a whole lot of trauma in between, Rachel knew life had to look a lot different going forward.
Inspired by this first client’s story and always having been passionate about empowering people to make lasting changes, Rachel decided to go into coaching officially. Over the years many people from various backgrounds have come to Rachel for coaching and have taken back control of their time, their health, started new career paths, and made their own dream come true.
Transformation can take many forms, and can be approached in many ways. For change to last, it’s helpful to have an understanding as to how to teach your brain how to serve up what you want rather than sabotage your progress. For this reason, Rachel includes a basic approach to neuroscience/neuroplasticity into the program. To learn more, visit this page.
