About Miriam Jacobson, MS RD CNS
Wellness isn't a destination - it's a continual process and you can start your journey to wellness now ...
My personal health journey began after losing my father when I was 13 years old. The stress and trauma combined with poor eating habits took a terrible toll on my health. I felt bloated, tired and anxious. At age 20 I would lay in bed at night crying from arthritic pains that my doctor told me didn’t really exist.
I dreamt of feeling light, graceful and healthy. For a long time, I thought that if I ignored the issue it would miraculously disappear. This was not the case. Healing myself through an integrative approach challenged me to redefine the relationship I had with myself, my grief and with food. Once I truly valued myself, it empowered me to treat my body with love and care. I can help you to do the same.
My mission is to help you live a full and engaged life where you feel balance in your body and mind.
