I attended Michele’s talk titled ‘Energy, Vitality, and Happy Hormones - It’s all in your food’ at the World Positive Education summit in Texas.  The title intrigued me because I strongly believe that nutrition has a huge impact on well-being.  The talk was amazing Michele’s energetic style and clear messages on the importance of nutrition inspired me to ask her to speak to my leadership team in our company in Australia and now we have partnered with Michele  to fill a missing link in our holistic well-being program.

Mental Health, emotional well-being and clarity of thinking are in my view all enhanced by a low sugar lifestyle.  As a family, we’ve kicked the habit (not hard) and its awesome!   The science is all moving in this direction. For our own sake and the sake of future generations we need to address the “sugar” epidemic in all its manifestations. Michele and her team know what they’re about and practise what they preach. Bravo!

When I was in the thick of my depression, I found that bad habits were easy to slip into and good ones easy to excuse away. Food was definitely a big part of this equation. Quick fix food felt great for a moment but pretty soon zapped me of energy, made it harder to concentrate, and overall contributed to a feeling of heading in the wrong direction. I LOVE Michele’s approach to realistically eating well! We’re not robots and our diets don’t have to be perfect and boring. Small changes can lead to big positive things.

The presentation was engaging and inspirational and it got EVERYONE talking about sugar and the importance of healthy eating, physical and mental health which is what it's all about... my team and I have already made changes... we have ditched the jelly bean jar and introduced the homemade protein balls for when that sugar craving hits!

We were honoured to have Michele Chevalley Hedge from A Healthy View talk at our annual Guzman y Gomez (GYG) Summit in October 2017. Michele spoke to our 200+ audience about nutritional trends & wellbeing. She is an engaging, intelligent and articulate speaker who had our audience having many a “light bulb” moment particularly around the health risks of sugar in our diet.

I approached Michele Chevalley Hedge at A Healthy View after watching her speak at several other educational events earlier in the year and I hoped she would be available to address the delegates at The School Nurses Association of NSW 17th Annual Conference in September 2016.

I was not disappointed, and neither were the 150 nurse delegates at the conference as they listened to Michele educate them regarding maintaining their own health and energy levels through a healthy balanced diet in order to look after the physical and mental health needs of the students in schools in which they work.

Michele is energetic, vital and a living example of the end result of a well-balanced diet and lifestyle. She inspired us with her motivation and encouraged all to make healthy choices and project this message to the students in our care. Nurses commented that Michele was invigorating and encouraging.  Her presentation was entertaining and interesting providing useful strategies for delegates and those under their care.

Michele has spoken at both the Mental Health in Schools (MHIS) and School Counsellors and Psychologists (SCAP) Conferences since 2015.  These conferences’ include speakers of the highest calbire, and Michele has constantly been an invaluable contribution to these events.
