You've just uncovered something profound. You are taking the first, second, or even tenth step toward finding mentorship and companionship on this journey of life. In my ten years as a healthcare chaplain – eight of which were spent exclusively with hospice patients – I have learned that many people die with many regrets... especially those whom dominant culture has labeled "successful." They regret spending too much time amassing wealth for their family when the family just wanted more time from them. They regret becoming an accountant or a [fill in the blank], but what they really wanted to do was be a conductor, a sculptor, a stay-at-home father... And they regret having few people surrounding them in their final weeks and days. So when I congratulate you on uncovering something profound, know that I see you, and I appreciate the journey you are on. Let's work together on your full story – on your mind/body/spirit – because it all counts.
If you made it to this website, I probably invited you to try one of the 90-Day Transformation programs, such as the "Fabulous After 40 Total Transformation 90-Day Intensive." Aside from the week-to-week, supportive, and embodied coaching I offer, here are the seven topical 90-day transformation programs, which I also offer:
Yes, coaching is hard work. But I'm here to remind you of the truth, which is you can do this. You are going to do a great job. If you think back in your mind to the last five, ten, twenty years of your life, and you think about all of the things that you've overcome — things you've done that were really difficult — chances are good that's a long list. So, you got this! You can do this. This is going to be fun. This is going to be easier than you thought. And I think you're going to be surprised at how well you do and how much of a good time you will have doing it!
Through my connection to the International Sports Science Association (ISSA), I was able to form a partnership with Genetic Direction, which is a federally certified genetic testing lab based in Dallas, TX. Genetic Direction analyzes approximately 300 unique genetic markers that have been shown through external research to be related to various ways the human body processes food, nutrients, and physical exercise, as well as how the body responds to the aging process.
As the field of genetics evolves, it’s becoming more obvious: genes play a role in more than just hair and eye color. Everyone is unique because of genetics. And this type of individuality requires personalized solutions when it comes to health and wellness recommendations. Genetic testing provides the ability to design coaching programs so accurate and predictable, that client success--when following the recommendations--is more likely. This is perhaps the most exciting change in the health and wellness profession!
A recent study published by the European Society of Human Genetics found that dieters employing weight management programs tailored to the individual’s genome lost up to 33% more weight than those following standard, “one size fits all” weight loss programs. With the latest genomic technology, any health management program that does not take an individual’s genetic profile into account is simply guesswork.
While the science behind our products is very complex, the process you will follow to obtain your genetics-based recommendations is quite simple. After you purchase a product, you will receive a DNA collection kit. You will simply rub the sterile cotton swab in the kit along your gums for one minute, pack the sample up, and send it back to the Genetic Direction lab. Their federally certified lab will analyze your sample, and within 2-3 weeks, Daniel will send you a notification that your report is ready for you to access inside your secure web portal.
If you have already purchased a 23andMe Health+Ancestry test or an AncestryDNA test, then you are eligible to purchase our genetic wellness products at a large discount – and you don’t have to submit another sample for DNA testing! During registration you will have the opportunity to upload your 23andMe Health+Ancestry or AncestryDNA raw genetic data from and we will generate your reports and recommendations from your existing data. Since we don’t need to obtain another DNA sample from you, the turnaround time for your reports will be days, not weeks.
My premier report contains 34 unique genetic traits and is a combination of several traits from the GxSlim (weight loss), GxPerform (athletic performance), GxRenew (healthy aging) and GxNutrient (micronutrient tendencies) programs. The vast majority of the traits within GxSlim and GxPerform are included in the Embodied Spirit Genetic Test, but the Food Summary, Sample Meal Plan, Exercise Summary and Sample Exercise Plan (all from GxSlim) are NOT included in the Embodied Spirit Genetic Test. This is the only test Embodied Spirit offers. You may order additional tests a la carte directly through Genetic Direction.
There are hundreds of certified coaches who create a split between mind, and body, and spirit, as if they can be isolated in real life. My ministerial training has taught me that, in real life, everything is connected. Consider the typical "gym rat" who has a toned body and looks objectively great wearing anything. She has it all, right? But what if she is completely cut off from her emotions, has no direction in her career, and is $120,000 in debt? There's an imbalance at play, which is sabotaging her life. Or the "guru" who knows all about chakras and crystals, meditates daily, works out 1-2x/week, but rarely eats clean, and is 45lbs+ overweight with pain in his knees. Again, something isn't right. Working with me is all about bringing full consciousness, embodiedness, healthfulness, and connectedness to all our participants. That's why you can't just do life coaching. Not here, anyway. One of the first exercises I have you complete is the Wheel of Life. Through it, you'll discover that you might have a "flat tire" in one or more areas of your life. But everything begins of the verge of awareness!

Maybe you have a scientifically sound exercise and meal plan that is not the right fit for you. Daniel can help you learn about your genetic disposition through DNA testing and can build programming specifically tailored to you. Together, we can check if your body is resistant to losing weight, how well your body can process carbohydrates in your diet, how much body fat you can lose through cardio exercise, how well your body can effectively absorb folate (a B-complex vitamin), how sensitive your body is to the amount of fat in your diet, how your body responds to strength training, and how sensitive your body is to the amount of protein in your diet. Your lab samples are sent to a lab that CLIA-compliant and CAP-certified, and your results are HIPAA-compliant and protected under GINA. This overall picture will enable you to better identify your health and fitness goals, co-create your individualized program for exercise and nutrition, and modify the variables until success is the only option.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and automated external defibrillator (AED) training are two different life-saving techniques, that when used together, are the most effective way of saving a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
