Dr. Susan Stukes
I am the leader of the Seva team. I have spent more than 25 years practicing dentistry and promoting the whole health approach to wellness. In addition to having a Doctorate degree in Dental Medicine, I’m certified through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a health coach and have been selected by the prestigious institute for Whole Health to receive certification in whole health education. Through the whole health institute I have trained under health visionaries such as Dr. Anne Louise Gittleman PHD, CNS, Dr. Barry Sears PHD, and Dr. Bernie Siegel MD, who are physicians, authors, and motivational speakers on the Whole Health and Wellness concept.
I believe in the whole health approach, and that all the systems in the body are interconnected. What you eat has a huge emphasis on how you look and feel. Moreover, the foods you eat can increase or decrease the inflammation in your body. The focus of my work is centered on making you smile inside and out by introducing anti-inflammatory foods, restorative cleansing and identifying and overcoming your individual triggers and challenges that have made change in the past difficult for you. I do not believe in rigid or restrictive eating regimens. I believe in taking small steps that lead to big change.
I have transformed my life through making healthy living changes and so can you. I can help you in losing unhealthy weight or fighting chronic illnesses that all root back to the inflammation in your body.

I have traveled around the globe to facilitate healthcare and education to the underprivileged. I have worked with World Health Organization on Safe Motherhood and founded the International Health professionals Network that has delivered professional healthcare services in Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America. Not all this would have been possible if I had not been in the best of the health. I want you to live a healthy and prosperous life, and embrace whole food living.

My motivation stems from a family history of obesity and High Blood Pressure. Having witnessed several family members being diagnosed with the condition, I knew that I was the only one responsible for controlling my own lifestyle. The same with you, no one can hit the “stop” button but you!
Having gone through the devastation of being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and enduring 6 grueling rounds of chemo, I know now, more than ever, that being in good shape to start with helped me to live to tell about it! Are you seeking real information, advice and motivation to live a fit lifestyle? Then you’ve come to the right place!
Together, we will create a training program that fits your individuality. You will not only be encouraged to follow sound nutrition habits, but I will show you how to discern between fact and fiction when it comes to the right way to eat to be healthy. I am passionate about fitness and thrilled to share my enthusiasm and knowledge to help you accomplish your goals. Be sure to check out my transformation below and see what other clients have to say about their journey.
