Jami Cooley is a Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant as well as a Registered Nurse, but her interest in integrative medicine grew out of her experience in conventional medicine.

Cooley began her nursing education with a strong desire to make a difference in other people’s lives. She decided that helping people who were struggling with cancer would be the ultimate expression of her passion, her training and her skill. So she became a Registered Nurse with certification in Chemotherapy and Biotherapy received at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston.

Her early career involved work as an Oncology/ Hematology Floor Nurse in a large Dallas hospital and then work as a clinic-based Chemotherapy Infusion Nurse. But in this role she soon realized her dream of helping people get well and feel better was falling far short. So she began studying the diet-link to cancer, as well as the role of nutrition in various other chronic illnesses. She became a Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant and became a member of the American Fitness Professionals Association and the American Nutrition Association. She began working as a medical researcher and writer and has co-authored two books, Eating Your Way to Good Health and The Fungus Link: Volume 3.

Cooley provides nutritional counseling for individuals who want to gain energy, lose weight, or just start to feel better. And now she uses that medical training and experience as well as her passion for natural healing protocols to help readers find solutions to their chronic health challenges.
