ABOUT Becky Spacke

You might be wondering who I am, and more importantly, am I qualified to talk about nutrition and healthcare concepts with you?

These are my parents, Chuck and Mary Helen. They were celebrating a great moment with me. Sadly, I lost them both to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Witnessing the toll it took on their minds and spirits was a turning point in my life. Watching how they died became the catalyst that fueled my determination to dedicate my knowledge and expertise to preventive measures against this horrid disease.

I started my journey into healthcare after becoming a Chiropractic Physician in the 1990’s. I continued on with my education, earning Post-Doctorate certifications in:

Here are a few questions:

  • Have you ever bought a self-help book (or online course)?
  • And, did you read the book from cover to cover?
  • If you did, were you able to implement the strategies and make the changes outlined in the book?

If you’re like nearly every single person on planet earth, the answer to question 1 is a strong YES. Unfortunately, the answer to questions 2 and 3 is NO.

Why is that?
If you took the time to buy the book (or online course), you clearly have a desire to make some sort of change.

Again, if you’re like most people, though the desire is there, the strategies to implement the program can be intimidating or overwhelming.

If you’re here, you want change…but don’t know what to do, or how to do it. And, that’s why I’m here. I will be your health coach and cheerleader, all rolled up into one. Together, we’ll get to the finish line, one step at a time.

Do you have a family member with dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease? Unfortunately for me, both of my parents died of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Along with the sadness of watching your loved one decline in health is the fear that this fate might hit you, too. None of us want to fall victim to this devastating illness. (I DEFINITELY don’t want to end up like my parents.)

Biology tells us that if you have a parent with dementia/Alzheimer’s, your risk goes up. And even worse, if you have two parents with this disease, the risk goes up exponentially. Unfortunately I got the double-whammy, so I’m personally taking ‘prevention’ very seriously.

Are you held hostage to your genes, or is there something you can do to reduce your risk of becoming another patient with Alzheimer’s?

Though you can’t change your genetic make-up, you can absolutely change the risk factors that are driven by your lifestyle. Isn’t that good to know?

Improving nutrition, sleep, stress, exercise, brain games, and other factors can greatly reduce your risk of falling victim to dementia/Alzheimer’s and that’s why I’m here. I have a burning desire to walk with you as you implement important strategies to support optimal brain health, thereby minimizing your risks of developing this horrible disease.

You don’t have to try to figure it out on your own. Together, we can address this comprehensive program, one step at a time, at a pace that works well for you.

When it comes to health, this is what I believe:

  • I believe the body has the ability to heal itself. The Creator has provided an inner wisdom that’s responsible for creating balance in our body. Our job is to support it.
  • I believe my role is to be your ‘coach’ or ‘teacher’. I want to guide you on your healing journey. However, it’s up to you to play the most active role in your healing process.
  • I believe prevention is key. You know the saying … An Ounce of Prevention is worth A Pound of Cure. It’s an adage that’s stood the test of time.

My mission has not changed since the 1990’s, when I opened my very first practice,  and that mission is to inspire you to live a life healthier and happier than you’ve dreamed possible.

A magical thing happens when you support the health of your body ... it will support you back.
