Tracey Long's Bio:

I have 25 years of experience working as a fitness and nutrition specialist. In the past ten years I have added specialty training in stress management and completed a certification program to work as a yoga instructor. I believe in practicing what I preach, optimizing health and vitality by optimizing lifestyle, especially through food, exercise, sleep, stress management, nurturing relationships and spending time in nature.

I also know what it is like to live with chronic disease.  I have an autoimmune condition called celiac disease. I manage this condition daily with my lifestyle. I have improved my ability to absorb and utilize nutrients despite the fact that my own body attacks my intestinal lining. In doing this I have improved my energy, cognition, joint health and vitality. I have decreased fatigue, foggy brain, stomach upset and pain, and joint pain. I have found hope.

I now work with individuals and small groups using my cutting edge training to personalize nutrition and wellness programs in-person or via media such as Google Hangouts, Zoom or Skype. I also am available for guest speaking on many topics related to personalized nutrition, growing healthy food and lifestyle. I help empower people with tools to take personal responsibility for improved health and refer to other healthcare providers when needed. I would be honored to be part of your healthcare team. My life has been a blessing that I hope I can use to help people!
