Liz Schau is an empath, Energy Reader, and Intuitive. She was born with the ability to see “beyond the veil” and read the subconscious mind and energy of those around her. Specifically, Liz is a body and soul reader and can “read” a person’s subconscious mind and ego, core wounds, life lessons, and chakra imbalances — that which is holding them back in a stressed, sickened state, and that which they are ultimately here to do. She is often able to see what is wrong with a person’s physical health and mental state without much background detail. Liz prefers to pair her spiritual gifts with “hard science” (legitimate medical information and research) to create a balanced approach.
For years, she was unaware this was a gift and allowed it to make her very sick and stressed. Eventually, she received a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Disease and became determined to reverse the health problems that were ailing her and causing a very poor quality of life. After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism and later, Hashimoto’s disease in 2007/2008, she began searching for answers, refusing to accept a lifetime of sickness. Thanks to a slew of holistic nutritional practices and other remedies, her thyroid disease went into un-medicated remission in late 2009 and has not returned since.
Liz knew she needed to share this information with others and went back to school to earn a certification in Holistic Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she learned from teachers such as Dr. Mark Hyman, Walter Willet, MD, Neal Barnard, MD, Dr. Barry Sears, and more. After receiving her Holistic Health Coaching certification, she was hired as the Wellness Coach for New York Times Bestselling author Dr. Amy Myers of Amy Myers, MD where she was trained by Dr. Myers herself in functional medicine practices, especially those related to autoimmune conditions, thyroid conditions, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), candidiasis, and leaky gut syndrome.
Liz is also the former Nutritional Health Coach for health food store chain Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage where she was trained in holistic diet and supplement strategies. She is also a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. Liz is a graduate of the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in Education and Writing and is the author of the soon-to-be-released book, How To Become Intuitive by publisher Balboa Press.
After suffering a lifetime of abuse herself, Liz easily recognizes the challenges that highly sensitive or empathic people are presented with and what we must do in order to stop the cycles that keep us sick and held back from our life’s purpose and greatest potential. She has helped many women with thyroid and autoimmune diseases not only improve their health but find remission.
She is an Aquarius living in the age of Aquarius, with a Cancer moon and Capricorn ascendant. Otherworldly knowledge + strong intuition and a born nurturer + hard work. Liz is also a mom and feels passionate about raising healthy babies, home birth and other female-centered birthing options, breastfeeding, and nourishing children with traditional foods. She is the chapter leader of the San Antonio Weston A. Price Foundation, which promotes old-world style dietary practices that have been forgotten in our modern culture.
