FALLBROOK – North County Parkinson's Support Group Fallbrook invites anyone interested to join its monthly Parkinson's Support Group meeting, Friday July 28, 10 a.m. to Noon, at the Fallbrook Regional Health and Wellness Center 1636 E. Mission Road. The speaker will be Shelly Cobb, founder and CEO of Thrive Wellness and Research Corporation in Temecula.
Cobb will talk about “Nutrition, A Holistic Approach to Wellness.” She is a board-certified holistic health educator specializing in nutrition and exercise. She embarked on a personal health journey due to a health crisis and autoimmune issues. She understands first-hand what it takes to thrive well. Now she uses her passion for health and nutrition to help others achieve optimal health, fitness, and wellness.
Cobb has degrees in education and holistic nutrition; she is a holistic nutrition professional, holistic health practitioner, certified personal trainer and wellness coach as well as an autoimmune paleo coach and certified gluten free practitioner.
She has had autoimmune issues ever since she was a baby. She also had childhood epilepsy from age 1-23 and currently has Celiac disease. A holistic doctor helped her turn her health around and encouraged her to become a nutritionist. “I love helping people improve their health through nutrition, lifestyle education, and exercise. Seeing clients succeed in improving their health and reaching their goals is one of the best joys, and I am thankful to be part of it,” Cobb said.
"If a person understands their health and what is needed to improve it, they will apply that advice. It is here at this junction where change can take place and lives are changed," she added.
In addition to the speaker presentation, breakout groups held for a time of sharing, coffee and refreshments will follow the program.
Meetings are held in support of persons with Parkinson's disease, care partners and people interested in improving the world of those affected by Parkinson’s disease, on the fourth Friday of every month.
