I started my career in the natural health world in 2010. At the time I was a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I began working with clients as a student coach. I had healed my Hashimoto’s Disease with nutrition in 2009 and knew I had to help others do the same. After graduating, I opened my practice, Liz Schau, Holistic Health and began offering nutrition programs to women both local to me and those at a great geographical distance. I watched their health blossom and many went into remission.
Over time, I also integrated life coaching into my practice. Without fail, though my clients and I spoke about nutrition and their physical symptoms, they would inevitably bring up stressors in their lives that needed attention. I would connect their stress back to a pattern of thought or behavior that seemed longstanding and unhealthy. They found such relief in our conversations that I emphasized the mind-body connection with everyone I worked with.
Years passed and my ability to pinpoint what exactly was “wrong” with a person intensified. Nutrition, I had discovered, was not the only piece to the disease and dis-ease puzzle. It was one essential piece, yes, but there was so much more affecting my clients that happened beneath the surface. Beneath the facade of “everything’s fine, everything’s good”, lay extreme tensions, unresolved emotions, relationship problems, anxieties, phobias, and fears. These extended beyond the scope of therapists or counselors they visited. It extended into the realm of spirit.
In 2017, I transitioned my practice into a spiritually-led business that honored the soul of a person, rather than merely the body. I had always been able to channel messages and perceive higher realities, but once I admitted to these gifts, everything I had repressed came tumbling out. I now assist clients in understanding their karma, soul contracts, life lessons, and core wounds. Above all, I help them shed their ego and tap back into their subconscious mind — the part of oneself where eternal truth resides.
