I Lost 105 pounds and cured my life threatening illnesses

2016-04 Michael Tamez-84 3

My name is Michael Tamez and I’m a lifestyle expert, wellness blogger, and healthy living advocate. My work is inspired by all aspects of holistic health & wellness, green living, financial education, and metaphysical spirituality. My books, articles, blog posts, interviews, videos, and talks are infused with invaluable life lessons that are aligned with my mission.

I’m certified as a Holistic Health Coach and listed on the national board for the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). I’m also certified as an Eco-Consultant and Energy Healing Practitioner. Through this website, my blog, and my books, I have combined my passion for health, sustainability, and raising of collective consciousness all in one place.

My most influential education was from my 15-year personal health and life transformation. I was morbidly obese, had severe sleep apnea, high blood pressure, advanced gum disease, and a whole lot of resentment for myself.

Not only did I reverse all of those conditions, but I also transformed the dysfunctional relationship I had to food, to my lifestyle, and to my true self.

In a period of 18 months, I lost five people in my close family. Yes, five people! Because of the tremendous impact these losses had on me, I was forced to have unforeseen breakthroughs in my life with things that were the hardest to deal with. 

After experiencing all the devastating and life changing deaths, I was highly inspired to write a transformative book about life! Through my journey of experiences, I realized my life’s purpose. It is to follow my passion of healthy living, and help as many people as I can who are struggling with health conditions and obesity related issues.

Here is a before and after photo of me:

TOTAL WEIGHT LOST: 105lb / 47kg

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, exercise/fitness support, and preventive health. This education combined with what I have experienced in my life is what fuels my passion for helping people create a healthy and balanced lifestyle. My mission is to inspire a permanent shift in the way people eat, think, feel, live and love. Please read my true story of a loser for more details.
