Hi, I’m Dana!
Here Is My Story And My Mission…
Welcome! I’m so happy you found your way here!I’m Dana Tran, a Certified Health Coach and Foot Zonologist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am so happy you found your way to my site and have an opportunity to explore wholesome natural ways to Ignite your health journey! My journey from pain to wellness led me to discover my passion for health and vitality. I am a life learner – always growing and evolving – and now that I’ve tapped into this beautiful world of joyful living, I’m captivated!
I love sharing my knowledge and experience of nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and holistic ways to transform the body, mind, and spirit. My purpose and passion in life is to empower others to cleanse the source of their pain and discover their true joy!
Even though I’m now in an amazing place – a healthy, happy, and hopeful life — it wasn’t always like this, and getting here was a long journey. For over 13 years, I struggled with migraines, chronic pain, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, weight gain, and metabolic issues. My health issues were exacerbated by eating the Standard American Diet, pharmaceutical dependence, a sedentary lifestyle, and a stressful corporate sales job in, of all places, the pharmaceutical industry.
I went through the gamut of standard medical treatments as well as alternative modalities. But they only suppressed the pain and symptoms, without addressing the root cause of my issues. I found myself getting sicker, more lost, and desperate.
After years of trial & error, I found my answers, through a Zonologist and nutrition expert, who would eventually become my mentor. I had zoning sessions and learned how to heal my body through wholesome nutrition. Within one month of eating whole food nutrition, I saw incredible improvements in my health and emotional state. Dietary shifts, combined with a mindful & active lifestyle, have helped me heal almost all my health issues and lose over 20 lbs!
Along this healing journey, I also found some amazing holistic modalities that helped me to heal even deeper, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Essential Oils, tai chi, yoga, energy work, meditation and deep breathing all helped me find additional balance and joy. This transformational experience ignited my passion for holistic health and desire to help others find true health and happiness.
My newfound purpose first took me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, preventative health, innovative coaching methods with the world’s top health and wellness experts, and became a Certified Health Coach. I then continued my training to become a Certified Foot, Face, and Back Zonologist at the Nordbloom American Institute of Foot Zonology, and trained as an EFT Practitioner at EFT Universe, the world’s leading EFT school. I am blessed to have the opportunity to share this phenomenal set of healing tools.
Finally, I found the courage to leave my corporate job and pursue my passion. I haven’t looked back and am healthier, happier, and more hopeful. After witnessing my transformation and experiencing the benefits for himself, my husband has become very supportive and enjoys our journey together. Now, our life is free from the constraints of my illnesses and we enjoy a balanced, active lifestyle involving nature, hiking, traveling, and nourishing home cooking. I am grateful for my wonderful community of support including my family, friends, colleagues and clients.
I look forward to getting to know you and help you Ignite your life!
