Melissa English grew up on the coast of Maine, studied commercial photography in Boston, and lived in the Atlanta, Georgia area for about 30 years while working as an assignment and portrait photographer, having a family and raising her children. In 2011 she moved to the Boulder, Colorado area to begin another chapter in her life. During the spring of 2018 Melissa moved back East to western North Carolina.
While being a photographer around the Southeast for many years - when photography was still a film process, Melissa became very toxic from photo darkroom chemicals and had to go through a committed detoxification effort. She also was a true sugar-a-holic and had chronic weight, pain and craving challenges. She stopped consuming the addictive sugars and white flour around the year 2000; since then she's been on the path of eating mostly organic, unprocessed foods with very low sugar consumption on a daily basis. Other past health issues that caused chronic muscle and joint pain motivated her to keep her diet as "clean" and as anti-inflammatory as possible in order to be pain free. Melissa has continued to learn better ways to honor her (greatly reduced) desire for sweets, without indulging in addictive types of sugary foods.
For the past 10-12 years, she has led workshops to help others learn how to get over their sugar habit and make better choices about their nourishment. Now, much of what she teaches is from a proven, scientifically tested system of lifestyle and food education called IN.FORM, created by a 45 year old company in Utah.

Since the 1990's, Melissa has studied nutritional trends, herbal and other chemical free health remedies with other natural health professionals all over the country. She became a certified IN.FORM health coach in 2016 and helps people learn how to end sugar and carb cravings, why constant sugar use is so addictive and disrupts so many aspects of balanced health, while helping them learn and implement lifestyle changes including how to shop "smarter". The IN.FORM course (or condensed version) that she teaches shows you:
*How to safely remove toxins from your food and body
*How to recognize and overcome emotional eating
*Why to make real food a priority while avoiding processed chemical food while
controlling (and ending) the cravings
*Why microbiome (gut) health is so important and how to improve it -which takes time and patience.
Most of us know, the standard American diet (SAD) can be very destructive; it requires commitment, education and support to make the better changes.
Being responsible for our own health and improved lifestyle habits can become a learned priority; this is a great benefit for ourselves, our families and the broken healthcare system.
