Living with chronic illness requires enormous energy, willpower, a positive outlook and hope. While we nobly fight, the weeks of illness turn into months, months turn into years, and the dreams we have for ourselves slowly fade and get replaced with the daily routine of pain management and survival.
Chronic illness and pain are a scary and messy encounter, even for the best of people. It is okay to be messy and have the complexities of being human. During chronic illness/pain life gets more complicated; challenging our bodies, our minds and certainly our spirits. Every relationship we have becomes deeply impacted by this. It is a struggle of monumental proportions. Following doctor’s instructions and sifting through the overwhelming amount of health information on the Internet is more than the average person can handle alone. Chronic illness and pain can be so all-encompassing that we feel like it has taken over our lives and that is who we have become. We can easily get lost in it, and understandably so but we do not want to get stuck in it.
Chronic illness and pain can be a journey, not a destination.
As we find ways to heal our bodies, we learn about diet and lifestyle and the profound impact they can have on our well-being and healing. This takes practice, lots of it. It takes encouragement and resources to make wise choices for your particular body. As you reap the rewards of your hard work you become empowered to thrive. Experiencing a healthy lifestyle can lead to wanting a deeper healing, providing greater purpose and meaning to life.
At this point, we have many health coaches who have been through the depths of disease and chronic illness and pain who have much to offer those currently suffering. Through our own experiences, we have learned to be the caretakers of our own bodies, making wise choices in nutrition and lifestyle.
Taking full responsibility for our bodies requires courage and support. Support can come in the form of health coaching by a certified health coach. With my certification, I have been able to provide support that includes knowledge, wisdom, practical solutions and personal experience galore! I have a crazy wild passion for making any part of someone else’s health journey more rewarding and comforting. The range of obstacles can be overwhelming during chronic illness/pain but help and hope are available.
These experiences can be transforming and actually a rewarding experience. Some of us have the privilege to be grateful for the health journeys that helped us step into a healthy and abundant life. Personally, I would never wish the experience on anyone. Yet I know the benefits of the fight. I am honored to walk alongside those who find themselves in the heat of this battle wanting to find practical solutions and soul lessons from the experience.
Discovering the deeper meaning of the agony brings a whole new level of life, leading to an Amazing Wholeness. Coming out the other side an awake, authentic and thriving individual with much to offer the world is worth every effort. Join me in healing from the soul to the cell.

“I needed someone to help me. I was suffering from nearly 20 years of having MS. Maribeth Baxter has been a gentle guide to help me with both my physical needs as well as grasping positivity for my emotional needs. Even my family has witnessed and embraced the changes she has facilitated.”
“Magical would be one word to describe what Maribeth Baxter has done with me. I still have a ways to go but I’m definitely on the right road and she keeps giving me more information to make my health even better. To know her is to love her.”
“She is an inspiration! Always very helpful and encouraging. She understands how hard it can be and always does her best to find ways to make things as affordable as possible, but in a way that can work. Maribeth is a sweet and caring person, I would not have known where to start without her.”
