Hi! My name is Debbie Andrade, I am the Founder of Balanced Wellbeing, and a Certified Professional Coach and Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner through the prestigious Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). During my training with iPEC, I studied the Core Energy Coaching process. I am a trained and certified ThetaHealing Practitioner. I am A Transformational Life Coach who teaches women how to live happy, healthy, powerful lives. I specialize in health & happiness recovery through Empowerment and deep inner transformation.
As with anything in life, I didn't get to this place in my life where I Coach and assist other women to live a life of Thriving without going through my own personal kind of hell and transformation.My journey began on May 12, 1999. On this day, my whole life was turned upside down. A life with an amazing husband, two beautiful young children, a career that I worked for many years to achieve and a full, active social life. I was just 30 years old and had my whole life ahead of me. I awoke on this morning to extreme dizziness and fatigue. Unable to walk on my own, my husband took me to the doctor. This day began a 10 year journey to uncover what was happening to me and how to regain my health and life. I spent the next several years searching for answers, going from doctor to doctor and spending nearly every dime we had to recover my health. This was a life changing experience for me and my whole family. I was diagnosed with so many different diseases, syndromes and health challenges that the quest to recover my health seemed next to impossible. In fact, that is the view that my doctor had who finally, after 3 years of extensive testing, diagnosed me with Extreme Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme Disease, a balance disorder that caused severe vertigo and dizziness and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I was completely disabled and unable to care for myself, let alone my two small children. The life I once knew was crumbling away and the pain, fatigue and fogginess were all I experienced everyday. My entire life fell apart, I lost my job, my friends and I was unable to be the mother and wife that I wanted to be. It was a relief to finally be diagnosed with something tangible but shortly there after I became very depressed and at my lowest point, became suicidal. I knew at this point that I had two choices- one was to sink further into the depression or worse take my own life or the second choice was to fight to get my health and my life back. And that decision changed everything for me. To me, the only option was to stand up and fight. And that is what I did for the next 10 years. I empowered myself to take my health in my own hands and to find my own answers. I sought out doctors, therapists, coaches, and natural health pratitioners from all across the country and in Mexico. My first quest was to find just one person who had recovered their health and find out how they did it. I was determined to find at least one person and if I couldn't find anyone, I was determined to be the first. Fortunately, I did find that first person and then many others that followed that had fully recovered their health. I fought hard to understand the illness, my body and myself and to uncover the many reasons why the illness had entered my life as it did.
Over the course of ten years, I gained not only an incredible education and understanding of myself and how the body heals, but also discovered that it was my life's journey and purpose to educate and assist others in regaining their health and reclaiming their lives. I am now fully recovered from all illness and am enjoying the health I only dreamed possible. I have completely rebuilt my life and am enjoying life from a brand new perspective. I share this new found health and happiness with my amazing husband of 26 years, daughter, son and two granddaughters aged 7 and 7 months. My belief is that the illness was the greatest gift I could have been given. Although the hardest, most painful journey imaginable, it has taught me things that I would never have been taught otherwise. I now have a profound sense of gratitude for life, for health and for living life to the fullest. I am now dedicating my life's work to assisting others in their journey of health, self-discovery, empowerment and absolute passion, purpose and happiness.
Join me and let me assist you in your journey. Your amazing life is waiting!
Be Happy - Be Healthy - Be Powerful
