Jason started his formal education by studying exercise science in college. After that, he launched his own exercise and health coaching business, adding education in nutrition, corrective exercise, psychology, and working with doctors of special populations to prevent and reverse disease. He completed his certification in plant-based nutrition from T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at eCornell. Currently, as the founder of Empowered Prevention, Jason works as an intuitive & Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, having graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Understanding that the mind is connected to our body, Jason also studied the connection between our thoughts and physical disease. He then began examining populations across the globe. Comparing treatments for cancer, heart disease, autoimmune conditions, and other chronic illness, he discovered diseases vary across cultures. What an individual consumes is a direct cause of disease development and progression. Adding chronic stress, childhood trauma, and emotional health will also contribute to physical disease. The healing process must always include the relationship of mind, body, and soul.
Jason’s journey began with an attempt to gain a greater understanding of the questions that big industry or biased academic viewpoints had avoided or simply failed to address. What are the causes of disease? He lost his mother from brain cancer, and in that process made a clear connection between the modern American lifestyle and our chronic disease rates being higher than anywhere else in the world. Why is America the wealthiest country in the world, and also the sickest?
With over a decade of experience, Jason’s discovery of the healing power of plants is backed by published, peer-reviewed medical journal research. He first stumbled upon this while studying the biochemistry of plants that herbalists have been using for decades to heal disease in other cultures. He found organizations that have been using nutrition and lifestyle change to reverse heart disease, diabetes, & autoimmune conditions since the 1980s! Since then, the list of diseases that are preventable and reversible through plant-heavy eating has grown dramatically. The powerful properties of plants transformed his health, along with the health of his family and clients who have applied his expertise on nutrition and lifestyle change.
Jason’s research started two decades ago as a teenager when he watched his mother go through brain cancer treatment. This saved her life then, but according to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, the amount of chemotherapy and radiation she received is the reason she eventually lost her life. Not from the cancer. It brought up many questions: Why didn’t they use nutritional therapy also? Why do some populations never have a single reported case of specific cancers? What is the root cause of cancer and all disease? Why do some people heal, and others do not? These answers came when Jason was diagnosed with high blood pressure, colitis, and adrenal fatigue in his mid-20s. This was a divine blessing! The diagnoses led to educating himself in herbalism and the medical plant-based movement, which has proven the ability to prevent, arrest, and reverse diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, lupus, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and many more chronic conditions. He applied this knowledge to his life and healed himself. The standard American diet is acidic and lacks nourishment. The standard American lifestyle is stressful, and our environmental stressors are highest in the world. It’s clear that nutrition and lifestyle are causations of all disease. When you correct this, you allow the body a chance to heal as it is designed to.
