Nancy's personal story
I grew up on a farm in South Dakota. Being the 12th of 16 (yes 16) children made for a full and rich upbringing. Family is a huge part of my story. Childhood memories take me back to all the crazy things that farm kids do. If you grew up on a farm or know someone who did then you know what I mean.
Despite the fact that I love to cook and never ate fast food, my health was always a struggle. Even as a kid I remember not feeling well most of the time. Our mother had passed away at age 47 from heart disease. Our father had been diagnosed with MS at age 35, cancer at age 50 and passed away at age 67. This is obviously not a great family health history!
I graduated from the University of South Dakota in 1991 with a degree in business administration. After moving to Colorado I soon married the love of my life, Jason, whom I met in college. After a short career working in sales I was blessed to be able to stay at home with my three beautiful girls for over 20 years.
Ten years ago I was experiencing major digestive issues, chronic infections, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, and MS-like symptoms. Our children were also having many health issues. Thankfully we found a wholistic doctor who helped us identify food sensitivities and overcome our health challenges by using food as medicine. I am now thrilled to be helping people on their journey to optimal health. My training in functional and integrative nutrition give me the tools needed to help us be successful together.
Nancy Knudson, BS,CHC,AADP, Health Coach/Nutrition Specialist
I am a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, Certified Essential Oil Coach and Nutrition Specialist. I started New Day Whole Health about eight years ago after overcoming my own health struggles. I offer one-on-one consulting to help people get to the root causes that keep them from having optimal health. In Functional Medicine we are taught to ask lots of questions…What are the current medical symptoms? Family health history? Nutrition quality? Toxin exposure? Life stressors? Emotional factors? There are so many pieces that go into our health. It is a very wholistic approach. I educate both through the one on one consulting and through group classes to inspire and empower my clients.
I believe many things set me apart as a Health Coach—one of them being the length of time I have been at this! Many new health coaches are coming onto the scene currently, but I have spent many years seeking natural solutions for my own health personally and have gained a lot of knowledge about herbs, essential oils and food as medicine. I am able to look at the root causes and suggest natural solutions for people. Another main factor that makes me successful is my compassion for people. Losing my mother at age 10 brought on a lot of emotional pain, and the health issues I experienced caused a lot of physical pain. I feel deeply for people in their struggles and am able to meet them where they are.
I also have my own line of handcrafted topical use essential oil blends for specific health concerns that I use in my practice. I use many of the expensive and uncommon oils that most people would not typically have and incorporate them into my blends. Essential oils have been used as medicine for thousands of years by traditional cultures and have been a huge part of my own healing journey. They are very affordable, natural solutions to promote good health, often so much better than medications or even natural oral supplements. You can check out my handcrafted blends at NewDayWholeHealth.com.
My essential oils are not a miracle cure but when used in conjunction with clean eating and a mindful lifestyle they can help to reduce food cravings, improve sleep, balance hormones, support mood, cognitive function, attention, focus, digestion, pain and more.
I do nutrition-based supplementation and teach group classes. I have cooking classes, essential oil classes, different self-care classes and health related classes. Change happens in community and the classes give people the opportunity to gather with people on similar journeys.
