Power of One:
Unleash Your Full Potential
This talk focuses on empowering people to live their best life by connecting with the creator within them. In our hectic lives we are busy with achieving success in the outward world. But success seems to come at the cost of sacrificing our health, family relationships and leaves an emptiness in our soul.
We can have it all if we lay the right balanced foundation for our lives. With personal and professional stories of my life I share three important lessons on how to find happiness and health in one’s life.
Pain of Obesity:
Healing with integrative medicine
Obesity is an epidemic in our country. Three out of four Americans are overweight including obese. The focus of the talk is to discuss this preventable chronic disease by addressing the physical, psychological and spiritual pain that patients suffer. Having worked over 10 years in obesity medicine my goal is to lay out a basic game plan to treat this disease with an integrative functional root cause approach.
With personal and professional stories I hope to inspire people to take five action steps to heal their health and achieve well-being.
“Betsy Jacob is an amazing nurse practitioner who cared for me with personalized medicine. I have always been at ease and able to talk with her about the stresses in my life and my issues surrounding food. Before I started working with Betsy Jacob I was in a cycle of weight gain, weight loss and shaming myself every time I stepped on the scale. She taught me strategies and gave me tools how not to shame myself but rather to love myself through this journey back to health and wellness. She showed me grace and compassion when I needed it the most.
With Betsy's help, I figured out food was not the enemy, my negative self-talk was my biggest road block standing in the way of reaching my weight goals. Having her walk alongside me was like being with a trusted family member. She helped me lose over 100 lbs and to top if off gave me confidence to became a health coach and pay it forward.”
