Being bullied as an engineer made me become a nutritionist and holistic health coach
I’m Linh – an ex-engineer, passionate nutritionist, and holistic health coach.
I was bullied as the only female engineer in my department. Not only was I additionally bored by the tasks but I was also unsatisfied with the canteen food which wasn’t only not pleasurable with regard to taste, but now I know it aggravated my chronic health conditions on top of it.
I started taking my own food to the canteen. But still, I couldn’t get used to the idea of doing a job until retirement where I didn’t only feel like an alien in an environment I couldn’t make myself fit in, plus by the end of the day, I didn’t know who I was adding value to.
Why did nobody tell me before?
I researched more and more about my health condition, went to many physicians, and tried various treatments. Some treatments eased the pain – but only temporarily. Nothing was promising for a sustainably healthy body.
But it wasn’t my fault that I did not know how to help myself. How could I possibly know, being raised in a culture, where band-aids are put on symptoms and the power of food is underestimated?
I was told all my life that whatever health condition plagues me, there will be a pill that solves it. But I was wrong. The real problem is that our educational system doesn’t provide us with the knowledge of how well nature has equipped us with natural medicine.
But there was hope!
Only when I figured out that a diet change could help prevent my health conditions to reoccur, I saw hope for a pain-free future life. So, after my findings, I started to consult my ex-colleagues in the company.
But I sensed a rising interest in helping more people become healthier and happier, too. When I started my training as a nutritionist at “Akademie der Naturheilkunde“, I was as certain as ever before: I had to leave the engineering path in order to strike my new path as a nutritionist.
Now, I’m a passionate nutritionist and holistic health coach who loves what she does. And with my personal and professional experiences, I want to empower other women like you to regain their strength, too. This is your invitation to start your journey toward a healthier life.
It’s time to build a healthy relationship with your body!
