Hello! Welcome to Resource Your Health. Our names are Michael and Stephen Hussey. We are two brothers who when bitten by chronic disease decided to bite back, our passion is using food to create health. To us food can bring people together, heal the body, and taste great! Our paths to food passion weren’t the same however. Michaels’ first job was in food service and it inspired him to attend culinary school at Johnson and Wales in Charlotte, NC. Since then he has spent his career as an executive chef for one of the largest food companies in the world.
Stephen’s career went a more medical route. After discovering a passion for health in college he attained his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and Masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States. Over the years he has learned the power of food to heal the body and it all began when he used the proper human diet as part of the healing process to rid himself of many chronic health ailments. Today he practices Chiropractic and Functional Medicine in Roanoke, VA and also coaches people back to health right here at Resource Your Health.
As if being brothers isn’t enough of a connection we are also both type 1 diabetic. Stephen was diagnosed at age 9 and Michael at age 22. Through the years we both have found that the proper diet does more for managing our condition, and many other conditions, than any recommended treatment ever has. Unfortunately we had to learn this on our own as no doctor ever told us about the importance that nutrition plays in managing and treating chronic disease. These days we are finding that the traditional places that people would find health (doctors’ office, pharmacy, gym) are not always the best places to achieve health. Our website is dedicated to helping you find new sources of health so that you can attain the most vital you possible.
Have you ever heard the saying “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This is the idea that we built our services on. Our menu planning and health coaching will teach you how to put yourself in the best environment to create health. If we gave you a healthy meal or healthy supplement we would help you take a step toward health for a little while, but if we teach you to make healthy meals and optimize your performance we will have given you the tools for a foundation of health for a lifetime.
The best part about this approach is that you can take it with you anywhere. Now you don’t have to worry about losing your sources of health while going on vacation or on business. Once you learn all we have to teach you, all the tools you need to have vibrant health will be with you no matter where you go.
