Dr Liz Levendig
My medical interest has always centered round being vibrant and beautiful, inside and out, and enhancing what brings each of us satisfaction and joy. I have worked in many settings, from the prisons to private practice, as well as enjoyed a surgical interest.
My special interest is integrating the spirit with the body, assisting in growing older with deep personal satisfaction as well as a vibrant, healthy body. Adding aesthetics to this is a natural progression to feeling good about ourselves.
Working with like minded professionals at Live 2ahundred has opened the full spectrum to our clients, encompassing the body, spirit and mind and personal and unique attention to each one of our clients will bring out the best in us all.. patient and practitioner.
I trained initially as a podiatrist and then went on to do a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Communication. I have a private podiatry practice, specializing in diabetic and arthritic patients, but added to that, I have studied Exercise Science (SA), Health and Nutrition (UK), Functional Medicine (USA) with a special interest in genetics. Functional medicine looks at the interplay between our genes, nutrition, lifestyle, exercise and stress and how that relates to health and chronic, non- communicable conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and ageing. My sub- studies include genetics, pain management, detoxification, gut management, energy management, hormone and sexual health. I am concerned at the downward spiral in health care and believe strongly that much of our health status lies within our own power. Education is everything but most of us do not have the time to sift through the information to establish what will work for us in our own unique context. I lecture for the Institute of Neuroscience, private corporations and at small workshops. I am committed to empowering people so they are informed, and can make health choices that will impact positively on their life and vitality. At Live2ahundred we look at the body from an Holistic approach but this may also include the aesthetic side. Feeling good ‘about’ our selves as well as feeling good ‘within’ ourselves, is important for longevity and a joyful life.
I served in the Fire Services of South Africa for many years as an operational fire fighter, paramedic and then as a senior officer. During these periods I was instrumental in establishing peer-review support structures for fellow fire fighters suffering from post-traumatic stress and other related conditions. Many stories can be told about my experiences, the impact they had on me and the manner in which they were dealt with. Through these experiences I have obtained a deeper insight into the humanity that resides within all of us as compassionate, caring beings. It is this background that enables me to provide a safe, comfortable and rewarding environment in which to support others in achieving their own goals. Whether it is business or personal, together we can move towards a peaceful and calm outlook from where any challenge can be met.
Let us work together in the Comfort Coaching Method, where we believe that a symbiotic and comfortable environment allows us to confront difficult issues in our lives, while knowing that we are safe and cared for.
