Hi, my name is Adelle Trogdon and I am a certified health & wellness coach from the Dallas, Texas area. I take a holistic approach with my clients which means I'm considering the whole person and not just individual symptoms. Over the years I have come to understand what an integral part stress plays in our not only our digestive health, but also overall health.

 

I received my health coach certification through ACE. I am also a certified nutrition consultant certified through the the American Association of Nutritional Consultants. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. I have completed additional training through the The SIBO Doctor, Bioindividual Nutrition Institute, Gut Health Partners, Health Sciences Academy, The Whole Health Project, The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, and more. As you can see, I LOVE learning new ways to improve health!

My Road to Health

My road to health has been long and winding! As a child I was addicted to sugar, sneaking sweet treats whenever I could. I was prone to depression which really intensified in my high school and college years. I also developed an anxiety disorder in college. And I used candy and food to help myself feel better.

During college I went through an anxiety program which helped me get a handle on my panic attacks. I decided to pursue a masters degree in counseling and loved studying every aspect of mental health. One tremendous benefit of my time in graduate school was that I also learned how to overcome my depression. 

In my mid 30s I began to experience a lot of digestive distress. I tried various diets to improve my symptoms and eventually discovered that I had become gluten intolerant. When I avoided gluten my bloating, nausea, and gas went away. I replaced all my gluten foods with gluten free and continued to eat the standard American diet. Then I began having gallbladder attacks! After about eight months of intermittent attacks they discovered I had a polyp and recommended the gallbladder be removed.

At first life seemed to normalize and I resumed my gluten free diet. But I began waking in the middle of the night in horrible pain. Through medical testing it was discovered that I had bile in my stomach which was causing gastritis and attacks of intense pain in my stomach and esophagus. I went on various medications, which didn't help. And had every test my GI could think of. Everything was normal, except for the bile in my stomach. 

After a year and a half of pain, I decided to seek out a nutritional therapist. She put me on a paleo type diet and a regimen of supplements. I began to feel better within days! As my symptoms began to subside,  I was amazed that diet made such a difference. 

Most recently I have seen the amazing benefits of breathwork and mindset. My remaining symptoms of bile reflux have vanished since concentrating on deep breathing and addressing lingering stress due to my mind's coping mechanisms.
