I am a Health Coach.  I would love to be

                Your Health Coach and to help you find                  

Your Healthier, Happier Life!

Donnalyn Murphy’s knowledge of health and nutrition began with many years of self-study, first in an attempt to help her body deal with various health challenges, and second, with the goal of raising a healthy family.  As she witnessed herself vibrantly living a life very different from her doctors’ negative prognosis, and as she observed the development of her active and very healthy children, she knew she had information the world needed.  Seeking credentials, and to further her knowledge, she enrolled in The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, in New York City, accredited by The State University of New York and by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, where she learned from ground breaking pioneers in the fields of health, nutrition and integrative medicine.  Donnalyn is now a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner or Health Coach.


A two time graduate of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, Donnalyn taught elementary school for the Upper Canada District School Board, a job she loved, but, sadly, could no longer perform, given her declining health.  


Donnalyn’s mission has become teaching people of all ages the power they have over the circumstances in which they find themselves, with simple, easy to sustain and pleasant, diet and lifestyle modifications.  Her philosophy is based upon the fact that food really does matter, but is only one variable, and that many of the diseases plaguing our society need not occur, if only people knew what to do and why it matters so much.  Diseases are much easier to prevent than cure. 


Donnalyn coaches individuals in person by Skype, or from a distance with Dripping Health, a once a week, by email, independent, total Health Coaching program.  Donnalyn is also available via MyOmBody, the world’s first integrative health app, as a featured coach and she is excited to have her own app as well.  See Baby Steps in the menu to the left.  Her programs are designed to skyrocket Health and Happiness while offering the level of support with which clients are most comfortable.  She also presents to groups on various health and lifestyle topics. 


Donnalyn’s clients experience immeasurable benefits including improved health, weight loss, more energy, gentler aging, a healthier family, improved quality of life and tremendous knowledge by examining, and slowly reshaping, diet and lifestyle habits. 


Corporate clients realize a healthier workforce, requiring fewer sick days and healthcare dollars, increased productivity and a much more pleasant work environment.
