Jonathan Ley is a pioneer and expert in the field of Lifestyle health care. Trained as a Chartered Herbalist, Certified Detoxification Specialist, and Life Coach and having learned from and consulted with some of the leading naturopathic doctors and performance coaches in North America, Jonathan has worked with thousands with everything from small aches and pains, to high blood pressure, weight loss, elevated cholesterol levels, arthritis, hair loss, chronic fatigue, autism, ADD, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, asthma, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, IBS, leaky gut, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, leukaemia, multiple myeloma, cancer and more.
In the earlier years of his practice, Jonathan discovered that there were some critical “blindspots” that both the allopathic and alternative medical models very rarely, if ever address.
These blindspots clearly illuminate much more of the mystery behind how inflammation occurs in our body, how we lose our health, as well as point to a simple and common sense approach how to reverse the degeneration process in the body. For someone to gain this awareness could literally make all the difference whether or not someone could recover from many health conditions.
Jonathan felt compelled to start teaching this methodology and working with clients from this perspective all over Western Canada, gradually taking on more and more advanced health cases up to the point where he now works regularly with late stage cancer cases and people with other serious chronic and degenerative health conditions all over North America often witnessing people have incredible and profound turn-arounds in their health and quality of life. You can learn more about this piece of awareness in the education section.
Over the years, his practice has evolved to include working with people from more of a Lifestyle healthcare focus as scientific literature tells us that nearly 80% of chronic illness can be avoided by adopting healthy behaviours. Thus his programs help clients become more aware of lifestyle choices that have led to their health challenges and help them optimize the following:
- Diet and nutrition
- Exercise, movement and stretching
- Sleeping patterns
- Medicinal herbs and supplements
- Strategies for reducing stress
Jonathan has also found that there’s more to good health than just fine tuning the above factors and it’s important to have all aspects of life working well (i.e. financial, career, relationships, spiritual, etc.) for someone to really thrive this lifetime. For this reason, some of his programs not only address health but help individuals flourish in all aspects of life.
