Meet My Health Coach

I'm so thrilled that my very good friend, Teleshia Delmar, has become a Certified Health Counselor, having graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. We've known each other for over 10 years and I've watched her passion for understanding the role that nutrition plays in your overall health and wellness grow. Now, she's turned that passion into a career.

Teleshia’s interest in the health industry began as she educated herself to address her own personal health concerns…fibroids, multiple miscarriages, gestational diabetes, and a family history of high blood pressure and diabetes. Teleshia also watched her mother fight a very rare form of cancer.

Teleshia understands the power of maintaining a healthy lifestyle by eating right, maintaining regular physical activity, sustaining a viable career and retaining meaningful relationships. Her company, Resurrect Health, helps people achieve their health goals in areas such as weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy and digestion. She focuses on helping her clients understand the benefits of eating whole foods and moving away from foods that are processed, reengineered, or filled with ingredients that you can't pronounce. I especially loved her workshop on sugar. Very eye opening!

Her mission is to help people understand why they are challenged with weight or unhealthy habits and then coach and educate them so that they can make smart, informed decisions and reach their health, weight and lifestyle goals.

I love the name of her company, the tagline, and the logo. She explains:

"Each aspect of our distinguishing name, tagline and logo has significant meaning; not only to us, but also for our clients. We named our company Resurrect Health LLC because we are in business to help our clients (re)turn their lives to a healthy state. We promote this lifestyle change by feeding (not restricting) the body back to life. Our logo reflects the colors and images that help tell our story. The tree represents life. The color orange is not only our favorite color, but it is a healing color. It symbolizes energy and warmth. The heart shaped fruit embodies the spiritual, emotional and moral core of a human being. The fruit, orange, is a reminder to eat healthy foods...hence the bite."

Teleshia will be a guest contributor to and will be conducting special teleseminars for our members. She'll also be contributing some health and nutrition articles to this blog. But you don't have to wait...if you have a question for Teleshia, all you have to do is ask it in the comments section and you'll get your answer!

  1. What were some of the "highlights" from the Sugar workshop?

  2. The workshop was great! Participants learned how to distinguish between natural and artificial sweeteners; why people crave sugar and how to reduce your cravings; and healthy alternatives so you can still enjoy sweets. The workshop will be offered again in September. Check out the details at

    Hope to see you there!

  3. Do you recommend a particular diet? Low-fat, low-carb, etc. I really need to lose some weight.


  4. I do not believe in diets because THEY DON'T WORK! Most diets are either designed for you to fail or compromise your health or both. I would strongly recommend that you contact me at to schedule a FREE wellness assessment. We will have a discussion about your health history, where you are today and where you want to be. We will also discuss those things that hinder you from reaching your goals. I will take that information and design a wellness program to help you meet your weight loss goals. So don't me TODAY!

  5. I agree with the philosophy of diets not working. It's really about healthy eating, portion control and exercise. It's not glamourous, but it works!
