Does this sound like you?

  • Creating lasting healthy habits can be challenging.
  • Despite your best efforts, you’re failing to see significant health improvements.
  • It’s impossible to stick to diets and eating “good” foods.
  • Too many potential solutions to chronic problems are overwhelming and confusing.
  • Prescriptions treat the symptom, not the actual problem.
  • Traditional medical providers don’t listen or understand you.
  • Bad habits take over best intentions.

“The secret to change is to focus your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.”
- Socrates

After struggling with my own chronic illness beginning at a young age, I know the importance of compassionate support and an in-depth understanding of how the food we eat can either work for - or against - our bodies.

I have nearly a decade of guiding self- improvers toward healing and restoration. After running several successful businesses, I pivoted to my passion - health and wellness.

Melissa Diluzio

Hello, I’m Melissa Baca, As a Certified Integrative Nutrition & Wellness Coach, I have a passion to help those that feel stuck in our current system and don’t know where to turn for help. I suffered from asthma as a teen and young adult. The treatment I received growing up did not promote healing or health. Instead, it weakened my body and immune system and kept me dependent on treatments that just maintained the status quo. When I learned that the main cause for my asthma was inflammation, a great curiosity began within me. It led me to discover that many of the chronic illnesses we suffer from today can be reversed, improved or avoided all together, through simple changes in our diet and lifestyle. I began to feel empowered and found that I had choices. I no longer felt stuck.

My education along with my curiosity created options which lead me to a life free from asthma, prescription drugs, hospitalization and breathing treatments. The foundation of my approach starts with education. When we learn we have options, we can make different choices. One of my greatest joys is seeing my clients make new choices and create habits that promote health and watching their lives change.

I've also spoken at events like the: Annual Health Symposium, Christian Women Connection, Canta Mia Senior Community, Take off Pounds in Sun City West, Community Association Management on health in the workplace; Surprise, AZ and the Lions Club in Spokane, WA. I've also been published in Grand LifeStyles Magazine.

What people are saying

After reading an article in the Grand Lifestyle Magazine in January 2020. I learned about the "Why Food Matters" class taught by Melissa. I am so happy I found it.It was exactly what my husband and I needed to change our bad eating habits. After the class I hired Melissa to help my husband and I. My husbands blood sugar and blood pressure numbers have lowered as well as weight loss for us both. To keep us on track we extended our sessions. Her caring nature and helpful suggestions encourage us to continue making healthy choices. We are so grateful for Melissa!
