About Me

Missy Cohen MPH, CINHC is a health and wellness coach who specializes in weight management, blood sugar control and pre- and post-menopausal issues. Optimal health is quite simple. It is about maximizing what your body needs, minimizing what is not working for you and getting out of your own way to experience true healing. How this occurs is different for everyone and Missy takes the time to learn about YOU and what makes your individual situation unique. She then works with you to make the food and lifestyle choices that will help you reach your optimal health.

Missy was diagnosed with ovarian cysts and fibroids two years ago. When she asked her doctor why she had developed these conditions, the doctor informed her that “everyone does.” Well, why? Why does “everyone” develop these things and what can be done about it? After getting a second opinion, Missy was told that she probably had them because of her pre-diabetic state, a situation she was unaware of.  She realized that if she continued to make the choices that she was making she was going to become diabetic and have to manage all the health challenges that that brings with it – kidney failure, blindness, neuropathy and more. She decided to make some changes to her diet and lifestyle that resulted in reversing her pre-diabetes, eliminating the cysts and fibroids, improving her sleep and giving her more energy and clarity than she ever thought possible!

Missy is the host on “New Beginnings to Health” which can be seen on Ashland Cable T.V. She is also a blogger and sought after speaker. She is a regular presenter at Wayside Racquet and Swim Club in Marlborough and Open Spirit Center in Framingham. She has partnered with Gauyna Chiropractic and Wellness Center and Boston Medical Center to educate people on the dangers of sugar and motivate them to remove it from their diets.
