Teri Cochrane learned valuable life lessons and healthy lifestyle protocols from her children first and believes in the idea that “The student may one day become the teacher”. Teri has dedicated the last eighteen years of her life to seeking health solutions—first within her own family and later with clients in her private practice. As she researched, studied, and learned, she discovered that foods had a lot to do with the health of our bodies, with her son’s health profile shifting in a positive way.
Both of her children recovered from life-threatening illnesses when she found the root cause of their imbalances and changed the way they ate to support their unique genetic blueprint. As she began to apply this thinking and approach to each of her clients it became so effective that she has coined it the “The Cochrane Method” in honor of her children. Her latest book The Wildatarian Diet: Living as Nature Intended is backed by pioneering research and explains that there is no one health food that works for everyone. Revealing how pathogens, stress, and our environment can influence our genes and therefore, our health, this guide is completely customized to your individual Wild Type.
