My name is Linda Berge-Lind, I am 34 years old and living in Hillerød, Denmark, with my husband and our two daughters. I am originally half Norwegian and half Icelandic, but I have lived most of my life in Denmark.
My journey toward becoming a Health Coach and a GAPS Practitioner started when I was in High School and my grandmother died of cancer only 1 month after her diagnosis. Although being sad, I was very intrigued by how fast this disease could take her life. This is the reason I ended up with a Master of Science in Biotechnology and used most of my time studying the immune system, cancer prevention and cancer treatment. Unfortunately short after I finished my study I got sick. I never got a diagnosis but my symptoms were everything from psychological (fuggy brain, aggressive, depression etc.) to physical problems (digestive issues, muscle/joint pain, irregular heartbeats etc.).
Today I feel super lucky that my doctor did not believe me and I never got a diagnosis! I know it sounds strange but it encouraged me to find a natural way to heal my body. I read everything I came across that had healed others from similar symptoms, and I started implementing, what had help them, into my life. It was a hard but rewarding journey that ultimately led to my bio-individual diet and lifestyle which made all my symptoms go away!
At this point in my life, I felt better than I ever had, and on top of everything; I was pregnant. During pregnancy I only focused on doing things I loved, and if I was not in the best mood, I would force the happiness to take over. So when I look back on my life, my pregnancy was the happiest and healthiest time in my whole life.
During that summer I took a coaching course at Manning Inspire, Denmark. The purpose of the course was to find your inner passion and get you motivated to follow your dream, while learning the principles of coaching. This course was a turning point in my life, as I discovered my true passion for coaching. I suddenly knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life! I wanted to become a Health Coach and focus on helping people enhance their immune system and their general well being through food and lifestyle changes.
Things happen for a reason, even though the reason is not always clear to us from the beginning. My husband got offered an expat contract in Houston, and suddenly our plan to raise our family in Denmark was changed. This opened new opportunities, and I kept believing that whatever I needed in order to live-out my dream, it would come to me when we came to US. It most certainty did. A new friend of mine introduced me to Institute of Integrative Nutrition shortly after our arrival, and I enrolled right away. The journey have just continued from there and I am now a Holistic Health Coach, a Certified GAPS™ Practitioner and a #1 BEST SELLING author. After two wonderful and exciting years in US, life has now brought us back to Denmark, where we will continue to grow as a family (expecting our second child June 2016).
This is the short version of my journey to success. Although I did not know the path from the beginning, setting my goals and believing in them proved crucial for reaching them. I am now living an Awesome Healthy Life.
