An Interview with Kelly Lang
How long have you been doing what you do?
I started my health coaching practice in 2007, while attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York City. But it was actually the year prior that I became inspired to work in the field of nutrition. My son, Thomas was in first grade at the time and I was getting calls almost daily from his teacher and the Principal. Thomas was not able to focus, he was disrupting the class and he was exhibiting some behaviors that were cause for concern. A few weeks later he was diagnosed with ADD, OCD and Turrets. I couldn't argue with the diagnosis but after receiving it I cried, the entire 45 minute ride home from the doctor's office. A bag of prescription meds sat on the seat next to me while my bubbly, sweet child sat in the back seat. Had I really done everything I could do before resorting to medicating my child? Loud and clear I heard NO.
So there began my journey into researching nutrition. Through that journey I learned about food sensitivities, brain chemistry imbalances and their impact on mood, focus and addiction. I learned about toxins in our food and environment, how to avoid them and so much more. I stumbled upon things that explained why I had so much fatigue, irritability and cravings and I figured out what was causing skin issues and respiratory problems in my younger children. As much as it felt like a struggle then, it was the most illuminating time in my life. I was onto something big. After 3 months of changing our food everyone thought I had put Thomas on the medication (even his teacher), and a few months later a panel of experts said they could not find any sign of the focus or attention issues he once had.
That year and those experiences introduced me to the powerful impact that food can have on mental and physical health for children and adults. My passion for sharing this knowledge was ignited and I enrolled at IIN so that I could help others make the connections between what they were eating and how they were feeling.
Who are your clients exactly?
Today my clients include people who have a strong motivation to get healthy but who feel confused or unfocused about what to do as well as people who have figured out their health issues and are now ready to use that health to manifest other dreams and desires. I work with people of all ages with all sorts of dreams.
How are you different from other coaches?
I'm different from other coaches because I employ a lot of different tools to help my clients get clear about what is going on and how to resolve it. This might include food sensitivity testing to identify hidden food reactions that are creating symptoms or it might include guided meditation that helps uncover hidden fears or self-limiting beliefs that are keeping someone from reaching their full potential. I also utilize essential oils, brain chemistry analysis, cleanse protocols, stress reducing techniques and other services based on what that particular client needs. I don't just focus on getting the person healthy…I focus on WHY they want to get healthy and what they will create with that health. I think my clients would say that I have a unique ability to believe in their dreams and help them stay on the path they truly desire.
What type of personality do you work best with?
I work best with people who are open to discovering new things about themselves, willing to let go of all excuses and are open to change, one step at a time.
For what type of person are your programs NOT going to work?
My programs are not likely to work for the person who wants a quick fix without an interest in understanding the root cause or how to create lasting change. My programs are aimed at getting you in touch with your body and your deepest desires so you can manifest a lifetime of good health and fulfillment.
What exactly is your approach to solving your client's problems and what does it include?
I help people who feel stuck in their personal growth due to health issues or unrealized dreams, to feel free again. My programs help people get free from chronic health challenges, negative self talk, fear, doubt, confusion, self limiting beliefs, patterns of failure, self sabotage and the paralyzing effects of victim-hood so dreams can come alive and be manifested.
My approach is to first help my clients get clear about what they desire to change or create in their lives and then to guide them through the step by step process that leads to that goal. Each client is different so there is no cookie cutter approach. For most we begin with getting the body clean and the mind clear so that focus is possible and then we step through the manifesting process with curiosity, encouragement and excitement.
Does this really work?
Absolutely. Please feel free to read about the remarkable transformations my clients have experienced.
What results can I expect?
You can expect to get really clear and connected to your intuition, your physical body and the dreams in your heart.
You will be able to discern what your body is telling you about your food, lifestyle, relationships, work and anything else that impacts your life.
You will gain the awareness and support to take the steps you need to heal, focus and stay committed to your goals.
You will learn how to release road blocks and limiting beliefs.
All of which results in you becoming more authentic, healthy, inspired and fulfilled.

I started working with Kelly for nutritional counseling and within a month, I realized the breadth and depth of her skills and stopped my other coaching to work with her exclusively! I have experienced tremendous emotional and spiritual growth as well as ongoing progress with my physical health and nutrition. Her individualized, targeted approach is amazing. Kelly radiates peace, acceptance, encouragement and motivation- a terrific combination! I always feel better about myself and my progress after coaching with Kelly!
Kelly was my spark of hope in the midst of darkness. She embraced me wholeheartedly with her ever present peace, guided me in remembering my own light, and empowered me to trust it. She restored my faith in myself, and that is everything. Kelly lights your path- she is the loving hand reaching out, saying "This way".
