Guest Bio: Amy Kurtz, Holistic Health Coach
Amy-KurtzAmy Kurtz is an AADP Holistic Health Coach, wellness advisor, detox expert, speaker, and writer.

And, she gets it. Starting in her mid-teens she endured two “perfect storms” of illness that progressed into her 20s. It earned her the label “the sick chick," and the pain, shame, fear, isolation, and frustration that came with it. While visiting Israel in her 20s, she got a parasite infection (along with having undiagnosed celiac disease and a thyroid condition) and had a total system shut down. She gained 30 pounds in 30 days, couldn't go to the bathroom or keep any solid food down, came home, and wound up in the hospital and in bed for over a month.

She’s radically improved her health, and now in her book, Kicking Sick: Your Go-To Guide for Thriving with Chronic Health Conditions (on sale January 2017), she shows readers how to jettison despair and become a “glow warrior”... someone who tunes into her body and intuitive wisdom, takes charge, and builds a support circle of medical experts, friends, and family.

Amy lives in New York City.
