About The Teacher

Ever since an early-aged health awakening, Garrett has spent the last 15 years immersed in the study of the crafts and sciences of health, nutrition, and human potential according to a broad spectrum of medical traditions, therapeutic nutritional protocols, diet philosophies, health modalities, and healing arts. Enlivened by self-experimentation, the effects of food on the body and mind, a deep conviction to help others out of needless suffering, and to find solutions to his own health struggles, he became a holistic health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012. This proved to be a pivotal time in his life that brought the discoveries of the vegan, raw food, and fruit-based lifestyles, powerful life practices of detoxification and cleansing such as juice feasting, and Natural Hygiene, the science of human health. These all played a significant role in his recovery from severe IBS, dysbiosis that resulted from chronic antibiotics use, candidiasis, acne, arthritis, at times crippling depression and anxiety, and chronic fatigue. Inspired by the beautiful simplicity of the blueprint of health and happiness that Nature has outlined for us, he takes a pragmatic and evidenced approach to wellness for himself and clients, that is also balanced and guided by intuition, spirituality, and total-body awareness. Teachings found in his programs include: - Demystifying weight loss and how to not only lose weight healthfully but to maintain your sanity and ENJOY THE PROCESS - Resolving Food Addictions, Cravings, Overeating & Disordered Eating by 'Escaping the Pleasure Trap' - Understanding the truth about Self-Esteem and how it's either empowering or crippling you along your journey for health and happiness - How to systematically and strategically RAISE SELF-ESTEEM to accelerate health to achieve not only shorter-term goals but to actualize your immense potential for wellbeing and longterm vision for your life. This IS the key to making LASTING IMPROVEMENTS IN YOUR HEALTH, HAPPINESS, & LIFE CIRCUMSTANCES. - How to transition and thrive longterm on a Plant-Based, Raw Foods OR Fruit-Focused diet and lifestyel for Profound Health Breakthroughs and Life Enhancements - Practical At-Home Cleansing & Detoxification Practices - Juice Feasting for Deeper & Accelerated Healing He's currently co-authoring the upcoming course ‘The Ultimate Acne Fix' to help young and adult men naturally heal chronic acne without drugs, supplements, or topicals. As a social change advocate and health visionary he feels that when even a single person experiences the profound health breakthroughs that are possible from taking a 'solid food vacation' on juices and adopting a raw vegan diet, the whole world is elevated. His life is dedicated to service through sharing this message of health freedom through the reconnection with nature. He finds pure joy and true bliss being outdoors, hiking or cycling, and eating locally grown, tree or vine-ripened, deliciously sweet, juicy fruit!
