Hello! My name is Tabitha Snyder and I am the owner of Healthy Lifestyle Consulting & Developing. I have spent six years studying in the health field and have obtained my Bachelor’s in Health and Wellness, my Master’s in Health Education, and my Master’s Certification of Online College Teaching, as well as being a Certified Phlebotomist and Certified in Autism (special needs) training. I started my studies in this field to first help my son who is autistic and then to try to better my life when I got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and then just one month later I was bit by a tick and was diagnosed with Lyme’s Disease. Through my studies I focused on research for each of these disabilities along with many others. I know how difficult it can be when things don’t seem to be getting better, but I knew there had to be answers outside of the normal medical realm. As I started getting answers to my health issues and started seeing changes in my own health and my son’s, I felt a great desire to help others as well. I can honestly tell you that I have a disability and I am not on any medications. Four years ago I could barely walk. I would get out of bed and land on the floor as my hips would not hold me. I would scoot down the steps on my bottom and crawl back up. When I reached the top, I would then ask for someone to please help me up. When my husband bought me a cane, I said no way was I going to live this way. I placed myself on a health plan that I developed and gained complete control of my health by making some lifestyle changes. That summer instead of crawling and suffering from pain, I was outside with my children playing bad mitten, hula hooping, and even playing tag. The challenges are there, but I am here to help you face those challenges and help you to find a healthier you. All you need to do is want to make the change and follow through.
Who We Are
I gave a small introduction to myself and now I would like to share about my business. I am the owner of Healthy Lifestyle Consulting & Developing. As we work together in developing a healthier lifestyle, you will have my specialized attention. There will be no confusions set forth by the advice or guidance of anyone else in my company. I service all of Butler County, PA and will consider expanding my services to other locations outside of Butler County.
In the natural and nutritional field, the body is looked at as a whole and not just the symptoms. Why is this? Simply because the body is made up of the body, mind and spirit and they all work together to make you who you are. If we forget to look at the entire aspect of your being, we will miss the essence of your health issue. I will not be diagnosing or giving you cures, but will be giving you suggestions that could in turn make your health better. However, it is ultimately up to you to make the changes necessary in creating a healthier you. I can only guide you, but you have to do the work.
So we have talked about the individual and how I can help, but how about as a group? When we work, study, or participate in a group setting, often times we overlook the needs of others who may have a special need. This is where I come in. I can evaluate your program or need of a program, design changes or develop an entire program, and then help you to implement these changes. I then can come back in several months to evaluate the program that was implemented to ensure that the program is working smoothly and make any tweeks that may be necessary for your group. Once the program is running does not mean that you are alone, you will have plenty of contact options in order to reach me for further help and support.
My goal with Healthy Lifestyle Consulting & Developing is to help every individual and group reach their healthiest potential. Everyone is important to me and all have the opportunity to reach new potentials that may have never been thought as possible. I want to help you reach those potentials and help you not only set goals, but to reach those goals.
I cannot give you a history of Healthy Lifestyle Consulting & Developing since the company is brand new. However, I can give you a little history of myself and how my experience may be able to help you to decide to use my services. I worked for approximately a year with a Naturopath and during that time I was developing some individual nutrition plans, helping people to reach a healthier being.
Over the last couple of years I have worked with a couple of faith-based communities evaluating and designing their special needs programs for special needs children. My understanding of special needs, because of my autistic son and my own needs with my MS, has greatly helped me in bettering the programs theses communities have, as well as help them design programs that help better the special needs learning experience.
I desire to broaden my horizons and add to my personal history as well as develop a history for my company. I look forward to working with both individuals and groups as they move toward a healthier tomorrow.
