Hi everyone! This is “Eat Right Coach” Louisa.
I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I teach clients how to tweak their diet and fitness activities based on their unique body type so they can achieve the brilliant health and well-being that they desire.
My health-coaching and personal chef services have helped clients recover from chronic digestive disorders that they had not been able to heal with conventional medicine for years, such as acid reflux and ulcerative colitis. I also specialize in helping people transition from the vegan diet if they experience negative health effects from it. I have experience helping dancers transition from a restrictive dieting culture to a more wholesome and sustainable way of eating so they can fuel their elite bodies for performance in the long run.
Over the past decade, I have been practicing a way of eating and living based on my blood type and genetic attributes. The result is that I have not felt as energetic, youthful and healthy since I was a teenager! I no longer struggle with weight fluctuations—a life-long issue—and I have been able to stay in good shape without too much effort. This, in turn, allows me to persue my passions–including the very demanding art form, ballet–in my mid-life.
My goal is to help people achieve what I have achieved—enjoying maximum health, vitality and happiness—by coaching people on the kind of healthy eating and lifestyle based on “tried-and-tested” formulas resulting from my personal health journey.
The Back Story
In 2009, I was diagnosed with huge uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts, and I started looking for natural ways to heal my body. During the process, I found many wonderful tricks and secrets. But I also stumbled many times while I experimented with different kinds of diet, including the vegan diet.
Topping the list of the healing methods I found to be very useful is the “Blood Type Diet,” which I started to follow in 2009. Since then, I have been healed from a myriad of ailments, many of which have bothered me since childhood—all kinds of digestive problems, cold sores, severe seasonal allergies, headaches, PMS, excess mucus, frequent colds and flus—the list goes on. I hope that my website will provide some inspiration and guidance to those of you who are struggling with similar health issues but are determined to improve your health and well-being through natural ways.
The reason why I have relied on the Blood Type Diet (which later developed into an even more personalized approach based on epigenetics principle) to support my physical health is simple. While “we are all one,” the human race does embrace a variety of different genetic attributes, including blood type and ethnicity. As a result, no one diet can address the specific needs of all individuals. One man’s food is another poison. This age-old adage is not only figurative but literally true! Eating according to your specific type helps you avoid the “poisons” that contribute to weight gain, mood instability, brain fog, lower immunity and higher chances for chronic diseases. Instead, it helps you boost your immune system, adjust your weight to what is optimum for your unique body, increase your vitality and longevity, plus a lot more. As a bonus, if you eat only what’s good for you, you will naturally not be wasting money on “edible poisons,” so it will help you save money too!
Systemic inflammation is a major contributor to chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, allergies and auto-immune diseases. When you learn how to cook and eat based on .your unique physiology, you will stand a much greater chance of preventing lifestyle-based chronic diseases.
As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I can work with you individually to look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. I will help you connect the dots and create completely personalized action plans to move you toward your health goals based on your unique vision, needs and resources.
Besides one-on-one coaching, I also conduct intensive small-group coaching. In January 2021, I launched my very first “Six-Week Challenge to Jump Start Your Mid-Life Body.” A small group of mid-life women participated in 42 days of intensive group coaching. They started by feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by failed past attempts on dieting and completed the Challenge with a few dress sizes down and a new sense of vitality and well-being. If your desire is to reclaim the health and vibrancy you once had, so that you can live the second half of your life with zest and enjoyment, please register for my challenge right now.
My services have also expanded to include functional movement workshops and fitness classes. I was certified as a Postural Alignment Specialists in 2009, and a Barre Fitness Instructor in 2020. During this challenging time of the Coronavirus pandemic, many of us are stuck at home due to the temporary closure of gyms and dance/yoga studios. As an adult ballet dancer for over 14 years, I am passionate about graceful movement as well as injury prevention/rehabilitation. Please check out “Louisa’s Therapeutic Workouts” program if you are a woman over the age of 40 and would like to restore your body’s functional design so that you can move beyond chronic pain and move gracefully and with strength. The program includes beginnes’ level ballet-inspired barre exercises that you can do in the safety of your home.
Do you need a mentor to give you some hand-holding or gentle nudging so you can firmly establish healthy habits that will last for a life time? Having someone to cheer you on and ask you deep questions can make a huge difference. Perhaps you have tried “everything” but are still not seeing improvements in your health. Then you may want to dig deeper than just focusing on food or exercise alone. There is a lot more than physical food alone, and as a health coach, I can guide you to heal yourself.
By the way, I speak five languages–English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Swedish and French, and have lived for many years in each of these three continents–Asia, North America and Europe. I am open to working with international clients.

“Thank you for the encouragement and the tips! I still can’t believe how much better I am feeling just by following the blood type diet! Adding red meat and avoiding gluten, dairy, lentils, avocados, and a few more things that I thought were good for me! Thank you for providing so many great recipes, tips, and knowledge!”
