Bettina Zumdick is a teacher, counselor, humanitarian, and author who is integrating the modern knowledge of the West with the ancient wisdom from the East. With a strong background in Food Science, Dietetics and Nutrition from the Wilhelms University in Muenster, Germany she has been involved in sharing her knowledge about food as medicine – using foods to maintain good health and to heal oneself. With over 30 years of experience in the field of holistic health, wellness, and macrobiotics she has helped many people to regain and retain their health and vibrancy.
Realizing the complex interconnections between mind, body, and spirit through her own healing journey from Lyme disease, Bettina knows it is possible to improve your health, access luminous beauty from within and to deepen the quality of all your experiences in life.
Bettina has lectured, presented and counseled in many places in the US and abroad, such as the accounting firm Ernst & Young in Secaucus, New Jersey, The Open Center in New York City, St. Rose College in Albany, New York, Cancer Support Groups in the US and many other places.
Another important aspect for her is making awareness about the basic right to good quality food for everyone on this planet, versus the prevalent agreement in our present world in which food is considered a commodity.
Many of Bettina’s life-changing experiences came through dreams, meaning that information pertinent to this physical reality was revealed in dreams, as well as downloads of knowledge and wisdom directly into the mind which has been of assistance to her personally and to her family, friends and clients.
Her life-long deep inner spiritual quest to understand the blueprint of our reality and what lies beyond has lead her to engage in spiritual practices to help access the vast knowledge, wisdom, power and love that is available to all of us.
Being a mother of a young man, she is aware of the challenges child rearing brings with it – especially as a single mother - and thus compassionately helping others in similar situations.
Beyond her holistic health and nutritional counseling and presentations, she practices and teaches Yoga, Qi Gong, Chanting, Meditation and other body-mind-spirit related subjects such as lucid dreaming and reading tarot cards.
Knowing that the mind desires stillness, but the body does better with movement, she also loves dancing Argentine Tango, Salsa, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking when her schedule allows.
