"I became familiar with Melanie’s expertise in 1994. I came to her for chronic yeast infections, headaches and debilitating seasonal allergies. She recommended specific products and dietary changes to get control of my problems. Although sceptical, I tried what Melanie recommended and found great relief very quickly. I find her to be professional, knowledgeable and caring."

"I have known Melanie for 20 years and have seen nothing but advancement in the field of health and wellness and a continual increase of commitment, compassion, and integrity. It is not merely her years of experience, nor her credentials that make her an exceptional healer, but it is her passion to see people whole again through diet and lifestyle modifications. With the wisdom that comes from knowledge put into practice, she uses her awareness to go beyond the symptoms and straight to the root and source of the ailment. She has a beautiful gift …she sees each person as an individual, their body uniquely formed. When you are in Melanie’s presence, you are the most important person to her."

"Meeting with Melanie Pouliot is one of the kindest and most loving things I have done for myself. Melanie's approach to assisting people to live their live's to their fullest potential is done in a gentle way that is very effective. Melanie's extensive knowledge of what our bodies need to be their best would fill volumes and yet Melanie breaks it down for each individual. There was time in my life when every six months I would have to take time out because I didn't feel well. After meeting with Melanie that all changed.

I highly recommend taking the time to meet with Melanie."

Melanie's Personal Health Journey                          ​​

"My own health journey began over 27 years ago in 1990.  I was pregnant with my third child and happened to be experiencing  multiple health complications.  

My doctor could do nothing for me and my only answer was to look at the holistic, natural route.  I was very fortunate to have  loving, guided support and a mentor work with me.

Slowly but surely I began to have an amazing turnaround.  I couldn't believe that it was possible to feel as good as I did and in such a short period of time.  It showed me how miraculous the healing potential is within our bodies.

I studied, read and gathered as much information as I could over the next 10  years.  During those years my oldest son was diagnosed with a terminal Brain Cancer.  I applied the holistic lifestyle, diet and supplements that provided my healing to his wellness plan.  He also had amazing results.  He was strong, healthy, active and vibrant, living 15 years past the death sentence given by his oncologists.  It was quite the journey for our family and for me it inspired me to further my education and studies in the wellness field.  It has brought me to today where I work with clients from all walks of life and with a myriad of health challenges.  I count it a privilege and honour to assist you.  Thank You!"

"Please contact me today.

Now is the time to be the best you can be.  

I look forward to partnering with you"

"Melanie is an amazing Holistic Health Coach" ​

​"Melanie Pouliot is an amazing resource in the field of Holistic Health and Nutrition"

When I first went to Melanie, I had some chronic, irritating health issues. 

I had fairly uncontrolled asthma, sinusitis – with no sense of smell for years, chronic allergies, bloating, eczema, sore joints, painful plantar fasciitis, high blood pressure – among too many other annoying problems to list.  I had a serious sugar addiction and eating habits that gave me blood sugar swings and at times made me eat out of control.  I also suffered from pretty severe anxiety.  We did an assessment, determined a few things from it and she was able to tailor a program for me. 

Here are some things that are WONDERFUL for me now: 

No allergy meds, no asthma meds, my bionic sense of smell is back, no bloating – I can bend down and tie my shoe without cutting off my air!  I no longer crave sugar, my joint pain is gone, as is my plantar fasciitis. I have balanced blood sugar so don’t have to stop for fast food on the  way home.  I can wait until I make my dinner.  My blood pressure is normal, and I am also free from anxiety!
I did slip on the plan in the beginning….it was really easy to go back to old ways.  When that happened, Melanie offered something that I was super skeptical about that she thought would help.  She offered her Brain Train Psych-K services.  I am a very logical, fact based person.  The way she described this would work would be basically speaking to my subconscious mind.  She did it with me and I was definitely skeptical.  In a nutshell, we basically gave me permission to be healthy!  

The power of the mind is a wonderful thing!  

I cannot say enough about the wonder of what she has offered me.  I have struggled my whole adult life with cravings, meal planning, portion control.  She reassured me that when my brain was on the right path…it would all be easy.  Wow was she right. 

I know this is cliché, but I can honestly say this has been life changing.  People in my life comment all the time about how healthy I look, how happy I seem, and how Zen I am

Thank you Melanie!

"It has been my absolute pleasure to assist my clients with their health concerns and wellness goals.  

I have learned from my clients as much as they have learned from me".    Melanie 

I have known Melanie for over 20 years in many different capacities. I initially met her through  Shaklee and benefited physically from the product knowledge she shared and her support in providing options that fit within my very limited budget.

More recently, Melanie facilitated her Psych-K training to encourage me to use my mind to support rather than limit myself, both in a physical part of my life as well as a non-physical area.

I have also consulted with Mel to meet my specific nutritional needs. In all three of these areas, I have been repeatedly impressed with her dedication to health and wholeness, and with the breadth and depth of her knowledge.
More important than Melanie’s knowledge and experience has been her inspiring example. I am one who struggles to find clear direction in my life. Watching Melanie instinctively pursue well-defined goals with focus and integrity has provided me with both an example to admire and a model to guide my own growth in this area. Another personal trait that draws me to Melanie is her dedication to embracing life fully in all its many colors. She truly embodies the truth of “Carpe diem”, whether treating her clients, travelling the world, grieving losses, or enjoying her family.
Melanie does not persuade or seek to convert. Rather, she presents information and gently encourages people to choose to live in their own best interests. I am fortunate to have benefitted from her encouragement and am honoured to offer my strong endorsement of all that Melanie has, does, and is."

The experiment of life comes with loads of challenges and rising to the challenges alone is probably the most difficult thing for us humans.  Then someone like Melanie comes along, i was going thru a bumpy bit both physically with digestive issues brought on by travels and the emotional issues brought on by a recent dog attacking me repeatedly..shock is a odd thing, it strikes when we least expect it and i had no tools to deal with the subconscious issues from dog attack but with Melanie’s help i am so over it its actually amazing!
Digestive issues took a bit more work and dedication but with solid guidlines and support we solved them as well.  I must admit there are many levels my conscience mind thought it was a bit “out there” with the Psych-K, but no harm was done in getting this solved and well there are many options to heal in this modern world but more often than not they involve side effects...
i appreciate having no possibility of side effects with her treatment. 
My confidence in myself and my personal happiness and gratitude are up in the high 90’s these days, feels quite amazing.
Thanks Melanie from your friend who is more than grateful for these gifts..
