A Different Approach

What Sets Us Apart:

We take an integrative, holistic approach to wellness.

We ask detailed questions specific to you and your life in order to make connections, create personalized wellness plans and educate our clients on their body’s deeper intricacies. We listen.

The fast paced conventional model takes a one size fits all approach, sees each body system separately, and falls short of seeing the big picture.

Many who find us are fed up with the mass-produced commercial medical system that isn’t listening to them, getting bounced around to different specialists, and tired of not understanding what’s going on in their bodies. 

Clients seek our help for a wide array of health issues. Whether you’re dealing with stubborn digestive issues, weight loss resistance, are concerned with how well you are aging, or more, we design a unique wellness plan for you and your bio individuality. Whatever your challenges, we have answers.

We offer lasting solutions for our clients by understanding and addressing the underlying causes of their symptoms and health concerns. We get to know You.

 

Working with clients located anywhere,
via phone or virtual sessions

We analyze the root causes to uncover what is needed to restore balance to the body naturally.

Easy DIY at-home lab tests give us useful data that can be applied to your individualized protocol.

LOW Energy OR Brain Fog

Addressing the root causes of these symptoms will lead to a life full of abundant energy and vitality. You don’t have to feel tired all the time. Let’s figure out what’s going on.

Chronic Pain

Unlike most practitioners who are limited by looking at chronic pain through only the lens of their specialty, I can see it from multiple angles. My training is in many modalities enabling me to view chronic pain from various vantage points for a truly integrative approach.

Posture & Exercise

Many people exercise before correcting muscular imbalances, leading to further stress on the body and risking more pain and injury. Others are exercising harder than what is ideal in their current state of health, leading to further imbalance. I create wellness plans that include the right amount of movement for optimal health.

Digestive Issues

Weight Loss

Traditional health coaches focus on behavioral modification and habit change . My approach is not to be a cheerleader but rather to figure out where the body is struggling, making weight loss difficult. A body with balanced systems can more easily lose weight. We consider; thyroid, metabolism, hormones, deficiencies, toxicities, blood sugar & lifestyle.

MALE & FEMALE HORMONE BALANCE

Although it is normal for our hormone levels to decline as we age, imbalances in the body can strongly influence them as well. Addressing the underlying causes will have a significant impact.

EASY, DIY Lab Tests done in the comfort of your own home

The data they provide can help to Maximize your plan

~Combined with Virtual Sessions for your convenience~

Lab Testing Available

These are different than the typical labs your PCP is doing. These are not checking for disease. They give us an enormous amount of other information that point us in the direction of underlying root cause imbalances In your body.

Using just this simple at-home, urine collection lab you can assess how well your digestive system is functioning, along with your energy and mood metabolites.
Plus, you’ll be able to actually see whether you’re truly getting all the vitamins you need from your current diet plan. This is the “go-to” lab when you want to find out how well your body is doing from the inside out!
Collection method: urine

Somedays are better than others, but for too long now you haven’t felt like yourself. From mood issues like anxiety or depression to sleep and even learning challenges, you know something doesn’t feel right but you can’t quite shake it. What’s worse, you’ve taken the right steps to investigate the issue, even balancing your gut as an important first step — but the issues persist.

When experiencing issues like these, many people explore potential hormone imbalances, but overlook another potential cause: neurotransmitter health. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers, relaying information from one nerve to the other. When they are out of balance the body may be over or under stimulated — which can trigger a range of neurological or psychological challenges.
Collection method: urine

Are you often congested or feel that your sinuses are blocked? Do you experience sensitivity to light or swings in your mood or appetite? If you find yourself telling people you have seasonal allergies all year long, harmful mycotoxins in your environment could be to blame.

Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold and can infest your home, vehicle or workspace. They are one of the most common environmental pollutants you are exposed to on a daily basis – and they could be draining your health without you realizing it. 
Collection method: urine

There’s no question that the foods we eat have a big impact on our health and quality of life. This is a simple and straightforward way to get the results you need to begin making positive health changes in your life. Welcome to personalized natural medicine at its best!
Collection method: finger prick

Stress — it comes in many forms, but no matter what kind of stress you’re under it can wreak havoc on your hormones and nervous system and lead to issues like changes in your mood or to irregular sleep patterns. What’s worse, if your stress has been escalating over time, you may not even realize it’s what is causing you to feel so tired and worn down.

Thankfully, there is a trusted and easy at-home test that measures your hormones, including any imbalances between levels of estrogen to progesterone.
Collection method: saliva

You find yourself continually stressed out. You’ve been experiencing bowel dysfunction or unexplained body pain and headaches. If you are doing your best to live a healthy lifestyle but continue to experience symptoms like these, microorganisms that have become out of balance in your intestines could be to blame.

While a number of microorganisms are commonly found in our intestines, it is possible for them to fall out of their homeostatic limits. What’s more, we can acquire microorganisms that should never be present in our body. In either case, a GI tract out of balance can lead to a number of health issues. 
Collection method- stool

If you’re dealing with any type of lowered mood, metabolism or mojo this is the time to get tested. If your goal is losing weight, we want you to know that it has less to do with daily caloric intake or how much you exercise and everything to do with hormone balance, cortisol levels and metabolism.

Add hidden inflammation to the list and it’s little wonder why you haven’t been able to lose weight and keep it off! This easy, at-home lab test measures your levels of thyroid, adrenal output, and hormones. Plus, we’ll assess how well your blood sugar levels are being managed and where your vitamin D levels are at for optimal health, longevity & immunity!
Collection method: saliva & finger prick

When it comes to protecting your heart, watching your cholesterol and blood pressure won’t give you the full picture. In truth, inflammation levels are often a much better indicator of overall cardiovascular health. What’s more is that ongoing inflammation can lead to a number of other troubling health issues if left undetected.

This easy, at-home lab test measures your levels of inflammation based on a ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fats. This is personalized natural medicine at its best!
Collection Method: finger prick

With over 77,000 man made chemicals infiltrating our environment it’s no longer a question of if your body is harboring toxins, but rather how many? The goal of the Complete Environmental Toxicity Test is to show you your “Total Toxic Load,” so that you can assess where you’re at now and how to go about “Emptying Your Rain Barrel.”

This is one of the rare and easy to complete. at-home labs that will show you once and for all how you’re doing in terms of detoxing some of the most harmful chemicals in the world. You’ll also be able to see your progress as you begin to eliminate years of potential built-up and stored toxins.
Collection method: urine

Your minerals levels include your electrolytes which provide you with the energy you need to get through your busy day, as well as buffer the effects of stress. No test is better at assessing these levels or looking at potential heavy metal toxicity than the Complete Minerals & Metal Test.
Collection Method: Hair Sample

The Complete Minerals & Metals Test is designed to provide clues that heavy metals like copper and aluminum may be to blame for things like: brain fog, headaches, memory issues, or taking longer to complete routine tasks.
Collection method: urine & finger prick

FULL BODY SYSTEMS -Functional Nutrition Counselor Certification with the Functional Nutrition Alliance; FxNA. This 11 month course provided me with the systems and framework into which to problem solve. We don’t want just to learn the “fix.” Instead, we want the system that allows us to “see into the complexity of the remedy.”

After receiving my massage license, I realized that all the schooling devoted to massage was focused on relaxation massage. But I needed to know more. I wanted to fix pain rather than alleviate it and I was curious to know the science behind the methods. So, I went on to complete a Medical Massage Certification with the Science of Massage Institute under Dr. Ross Turchaninov.

It was there I learned how to assess for painful musculoskeletal conditions, how to incorporate the nervous system in healing and how to truly address the root cause of the issue. No other training in medical massage techniques even comes close to providing a similar level of training in addressing the root cause of pain. It’s not about focusing on any one technique but rather the focus is on how to approach the body and how to solve root issues to impart lasting resolution.

Also known as an Esthetician; I hold a license as a skin care specialist with the State of Florida.

Certified Personal Trainer, CPT by the NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SPORTS MEDICINE; NASM.

  • How to safely build the body from a foundational level of exercise
  • Posture assessments – It’s important to focus on stretching rather than over exercising tight /shortened muscles. And to put more focus on strengthening the long/weakened muscles. NASM teaches how to properly asses for these muscle imbalances and what to do to bring the body back into proper balance.

aBOUT Renée

Renée grew up a military brat enjoying many years living overseas and was fortunate to experience other cultures. When she was stateside, she spent most of her childhood growing up in the southern United States, where at times she even sported an accent. Renée now calls Sarasota her home and spends her free time with her sassy Yorkie and delectable (though hairless) Chinese Crested.

Before finding her passion as an Integrative Health Strategist, Renée had an eclectic career. After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business, she became a professional photographer turned Private Investigator whose overarching goal in life was to help people in any way she could. That goal found its niche in the science -or rather the art- of integrative health and wellness.

Renée’s career in integrative health evolved after she embarked upon her own mission to find the answers she needed to heal herself. She spent years feeling sick, was labeled with various conditions, and lived with chronic pain. She was shuffled around to different specialists, but no one was sincerely listening to her.

She realized that if she wanted to get better, it would mean figuring out how to pragmatically balance her body in a way that would allow it to heal itself. It was this realization that sent her down four years of rabbit trails, which inevitably led to extensive training in integrative health.

Long before her academic accomplishments in the wellness field, Renée has instinctively been a questioner of the health status quo and an avid researcher. She applies her creative mind to connect seemingly disparate ideas that on the surface may seem unrelated. She has a thirst that forever explores what is hidden, overlooked, or discarded as mere theory. Her passion is to change lives for the better by connecting the power of science with the body’s ability to do what it knows how to do best if given the right support; to heal itself.

HAPPY CLIENTS

Savannah W

Specialists wanted to cut me open or prescribe me hormones, but after doing the at-home lab tests, Renée recommended a protocol that solved so many issues I had had for YEARS. She took the time to look into WHY my symptoms were there vs others I saw who just assumed I had issues that everyone else had. I am unique and Renée helped me develop a regimen that works for ME.

David G

For over a year I was dealing with stomach discomfort, feeling foggy in the head and less energy pre and post working out. After working with Renee these last 6 months I have more energy, better workouts, a clearer head, and fewer issues with my gut. Thank you Renée Zona!




Scott N

I was suffering from acne/rosacea, digestive issues, stress, high BP, and very low afternoon energy. After working with Renée I feel incredibly better. Each session helps me and I am looking forward to continuing to optimize my health even more. Having this much energy without needing caffeine has been a huge deal, and I wasn’t able to realize that on my own.

Healthy PET Coaching

My Yorkie, Molly, had runny eyes and inflammation. She couldn’t seem to lose weight, and although she loved going on adventures, her walks often had to be cut short. Jedi, my hairless Chinese Crested, suffered from skin issues, constant itching, recurrent ear infections, acid reflux, intermittent vomiting, and anxiety. Numerous trips to the vet only amounted to ‘quick fixes’ to address the immediate reaction or infection. No one seemed to have the answers or could point me in the correct direction to permanently resolve these issues.

For months my weekends were consumed with research and trial and error with various protocols and products. Some worked, some didn’t, and some made the situation worse. With each step, I learned more and more. Coincidentally, this same time in my dog’s life overlapped with my new educational journey in integrative health. As I learned more in the human health arena, light bulbs went off, and more made sense about what was to blame for my pet’s health obstacles.

It was an eye-opening realization that many of the same concepts in our own human health apply to our pets as well. It breaks my heart to see animals uncomfortably dealing with health issues that don’t have to be a reality. Through my own pets’ journey, I discovered that some general guidelines should apply to all pets, but it’s essential to recognize that what works for one will not work for all. Each pet is unique, and I design the wellness plan around the individual pet and you as the provider. I’m here to be your guide. My goal is to save you the trial and error, the research time, and hopefully, a lot of heartache and frustration along the way.

Sessions on Love, Life, Dating, Relationship, Career, and Executive coaching often begin differently than with other coaches. Utilizing the MBTI system, we can start with a personality assessment. This helps you gain more awareness about yourself and those around you which leads to more productive and successful sessions overall. Learning more about yourself and becoming aware of how others may see you are key steps for growth. 

When you understand personality preferences, you can more readily appreciate differences between you and people closest to you, such as spouses, partners, children, and friends. In most areas of life, when differences between you and another person are bothersome, you can avoid the other person in some way. But when that person is a loved one or close friend, you have a lot to lose by walking away.

Knowledge of personality type allows you to see those differences as just those—different ways of “being.” Instead of labeling a person and putting value judgments on his or her behavior, you can learn to see it as behavior reflecting personality type, not something designed to offend you. Many people learn to appreciate these differences and may even see them in a humorous light.

faq

Can you do a complimentary session with me before I sign up to become a client?


I’m sorry, but as my business has grown, I’m no longer offering the complimentary 15 minute sessions.

Where do the sessions take place?


The majority of my coaching sessions take place either over the phone or on video chat. This is up to my client. I rarely do medical massage sessions anymore, however I do consider it on a case by case basis; especially for TBI treatments and for chronic pain assessments.

Can we do in person sessions?


For a small additional charge, I can meet in person for coaching established clientele in the Sarasota area. I no longer maintain an office so the coaching would take place at your office, coffee shop or restaurant.

Do I need to order lab testing?


Lab tests are optional. We can accomplish a lot without them but they can also provide us with very detailed data. It’s really up to you.  If you are someone who will implement all of my recommendations without needing to see the proof on paper, then you may be able to save money on some of these tests. Also, some health issues may resolve themselves making that test ultimately unnecessary. If, however, you know you’re someone who really needs to see the proof/data to believe that particular change is truly necessary, then doing the tests in the beginning may actually save you money. The tests have a cost, but if you wait to do them later, you’ll need more coaching sessions to go over them. And I’ve discovered that some clients need to mentally become connected to the reality of precisely what’s going on in their body in order to commit to making any adjustments. These lab tests provide that for them.

What is the difference between the type of coaching in the BASIC & the PREMIER?


The BASIC package does not include the Premier Case Review. This Review consists of a very in depth intake so I can understand EVERYTHING going on for you and all of your health history. There is also an extra coaching session and my time spent outside of the session connecting the dots and developing an individualized wellness plan. The BASIC will have more generalized wellness recommendations; that still will be personalized for you as best I can from the info I gather about you during our sessions. The first session of the BASIC package will begin with some intake to get to know you, but it does not involve any preliminary investigation or further discovery outside of the session like the Premier Case Review does.

Can you accommodate evening sessions?


Yes I do have some evening sessions available. 

Will you prescribe a diet plan for my diabetes?


I do not prescribe diet plans as I am not a licensed dietician. I am certified in functional nutrition; which is a modality that works to not just support, but educate clients in what’s going on in their body and how making diet and lifestyle modifications will shift the terrain and help them to meet their goals. But if you have a condition that requires a strict, specialized meal plan, you’ll need to see a licensed dietician or nutritionist for help with that.
