TYTN Health Coaching

TYTN Health Coaching will help you demystify among all the conflicting dietary advice to choose the foods that best support you ~ no matter your individual goals or needs.  Whether you desire weight loss, better digestion and assimilation, or improved energy and vitality ~ there is a diet that supports you best.  

Nature ~ or the Great Spirit / God / Goddess / All That Is ~ has provided humans with an abundance of natural foods and resources with which to thrive.  You also have a built in inner guidance system that will steer you to the best choices ~ among those foods that Nature has provided ~ that is most balancing to your particular condition and constitution.    

The TYTN Health Coaching process will help you harmonize your True Nature with the best natural foods, and preparation techniques that are also in harmony with Nature's own seasons and rhythms.  Despite advancements in technology, your body is still hard wired to perform at its peak when you eat similar foods to what your early ancestors ate.  It's in your DNA.

Contrarily, unconsciously eating modern processed, synthetic, and refined foods while sitting long hours in front of a computer, or texting on the phone is a recipe for dis-ease, pain, stiffness,  loss of mobility, and premature aging.  Not to mention weight gain.



The TYTN Health Coaching helps you choose foods and lifestyle practices that will be most restorative to your particular needs.  

Whether you have a more yin (sensitive) or yang (hardy) constitution, your current condition and symptoms, the region you live, how active or inactive you are, the season, and your current health and life goals are all considered when determining your needs.


The TYTN Health Coaching process will help you better determine the nature of your condition and pattern of imbalance, and an understanding of which foods and cooking preparations to choose to realize your health goals.

What is unique about the TYTN Health Coaching process is that it empowers you with tools you can apply throughout the rest of your life.  It is based on the principles of Chinese medicine, and macrobiotics.  Both systems consider the nature, flavor, and energetic quality of foods and herbs, not just the nutritional profile, or what I call the nutritional resume of foods.  

By understanding the energetics of foods, and learning whether the energetic nature of your  current physical symptoms and predominant emotional states is more yin or yang, warm or cold, deficient or excess ~ you can apply the principles to help you make the best diet and lifestyle choices at any given time. 

The first three books in our Basic Macrobiotics series all contain a table indicating common symptoms, and whether those symptoms are viewed as more yin or yang, and which foods and cooking techniques to focus on to restore balance.  

The TYTN Health Coaching differs from the TYTN Coaching process, as we will focus specifically on your health and fitness goals, including weight loss.



"Years ago I became interested in Macrobiotics as a healthy way of eating. I read several books. It all looked complicated at the time and I let the idea go. I started acupuncture treatment at Barefoot Acupuncture and saw that Tracy and Don supported (Ancestral) Macrobiotics. ...I had a Macrobiotic (Health) consult with Tracy. Her knowledge and approach gave me an new view and I was able to implement preparing, cooking and eating in a Macrobiotic style. Ongoing help and tips from Tracy has made the process much easier. Tracy's support has been so helpful to me, allowing me to enjoy this new way of eating. Tracy and Don's books on Macrobiotic eating have been a great guide. Tracy took a subject that could seem complicated and overwhelming and made it simpler and easier to understand and implement." ~ LHG, Phoenix, AZ


TYTN Health Coaching helps you restore health, and  harmony to your body, your life, and the natural world.

The TYTN Diet Plan is an ancestral/paleo-diet style that is produce-rich with appropriate amounts of animal proteins, supplemented with greens, vegetables, fruits, roots, nuts, seeds, and good quality oils and fats.  

The TYTN health coaching session will help you implement the aspects of our recommended foods that will make the most sense for you.  

In this regard, whether you choose to be vegan, or prefer a (predominantly) grain and bean-free diet, we will ensure that you are constructing a diet plan that will be most effective at helping you with your health goals, paying attention to ensure long-term health, sustainability, and success.  

Our meal suggestions are simple, and sure to satisfy!


The only constant in life is change.  Your body, your moods, your energy also fluctuate continually throughout the day, and throughout the year.  The cycles of the moon and seasonal changes impact our moods and energy.  Some are more sensitive to these daily, monthly, and seasonal fluctuations than others.  

Cravings  change to match the season.  When it is hot out, you probably crave more cool, big, juicy fruit, and raw foods.  When it is cold out, you may desire more warming foods and spices, and longer cooking techniques, such as slow-cooked stews and soups.  You are naturally attracted to what will provide balance, without giving it much thought.  

However, if you are eating foods that are not harmonized with the season, and your particular needs, such as a lot of cold, raw fruit and salads during the cold season, you will be operating in discord to what is more natural for that season.  

While some raw fruits and salads can be tolerated even in the winter ~ especially for someone with a very 'yang' or hardy constitution, and/or warm condition ~ continually eating them if you are dealing with an already too yin or cold condition can weaken your immune system, and make you more susceptible to seasonal colds and flus.  Women may experience more premenstrual cramping, or cold hands and feet if their diet is full of cold smoothies, yogurt, and salads, especially when consumed prior to the onset of their cycle.  Even if these individual foods are supposed to be 'healthy' (according to that nutritional resumé), they may not be ideal for you based on the season, or your condition.  

TYTN Health Coaching will help you make more appropriate choices so you maintain vitality, and  healthy immunity throughout the year.

TYTN Health Coaching helps you become more in tune with your inner guidance system.  Once you are at a healthy base point, and understand the basics of healthy eating and a healthy diet, your intuitive cravings should guide you to the best choices.  

You can finally feel relieved as you liberate yourself from all the dietary dogma, and feel confident in knowing that there is no better expert for you then YOU!


"I enjoyed my coaching session with Tracy.  It was exactly what I wanted. Instead of just emailing me with a standard list of recommendations, Tracy made suggestions that seemed easy to implement, customized to my needs. It was exactly what I wanted." ~Anna D, Tempe, AZ

The steps in the Trust YourSELF Health Coaching process include:

  1. Survey of current pattern, including your symptoms, predominant emotional states, food preferences and aversions, and establishing your first level health goals, and amount of time and level of proficiency or desire for meal preparation.

  2. Explanation of the principles of balance,  how to read your body's cues/cravings, and nutritional basics.  You will learn which are the healthiest foods for you to focus on getting the bulk of your calories from.

  3. Learning new cooking and meal preparation techniques, and tips for preparing fast, healthy meals.

  4. Creating a healthy baseline.  This may involve a sort of detox period as foods that are unhealthful, or possible suspected food sensitivities are removed from the diet for a certain period of time before reintroducing them to test your reaction.  This stage may take up to a month or more, depending on your level of health.  You may experience discharge symptoms during this period which can feel similar to having a cold or flu, or general malaise.  While uncomfortable, it is a good sign!  

    Once a healthy baseline is established where your tastes have changed, and you have appropriately re-wired your mind-body circuitry to crave healthy versions of what your body is seeking, you can begin to better trust yourself, and your inner guidance system. 

  5. Practice and application, and enjoyment of new delicious recipes!

  6. Success!  Realizing your first level health goals!!!

  7. Maintain - Adapt - Go to the next level.  Once you are in the groove with learning how the Trust YourSELF Health Coaching process, it's all about keeping it going, and remaining flexible.  Adapt your diet to the changing demands of your schedule, and changing seasons.  Keep it going, and focus on your next health ~ or personal life ~ goals.  

    This stage may involve monthly or quarterly check-ins, by phone or email, for however much or little time you feel you need.



TYTN Health Coaching will also guide you to include more natural cleaning and personal body care products, and other lifestyle activities that will also improve your overall sense of well-being.

There are many natural, clean-smelling environmentally friendly cleaning products on the market these days, including these dishwashing detergent pods which gets the dishes really clean.

Most house cleaning products, and personal body care products are laden with chemicals, petroleum, dyes, and other synthetic elements that are harmful for health.  Some have been studied and shown to be immuno-suppressors.

Inhaling their fumes, and using chemical-laden products on your body or scalp on a regular basis can be impacting your health in many ways you may not suspect, including making you more susceptible to allergies.

Even synthetic dryer sheets, or aluminum-containing deodorants are not natural, and best avoided.
