Hi, I’m Whitney Prude, PharmD, BCPS!

I am a Board Certified Clinical Pharmacist and Mayo Clinic Certified Wellness Coach. I help people with and without chronic illnesses who are feeling stuck and unfulfilled to discover how to use their inner strengths, values and motivation to create a healthy, well-balanced life so they have the energy and ability to fill their lives with the things that matter most to them.

We live in an incredibly fast paced society where expectations are high and judgments are readily expressed behind the screens of technology. We are more connected than ever before, and yet we feel alone and unfulfilled. We try to meet the demands of our jobs and our families and are left feeling stressed and exhausted. In addition to all that, many of us struggle with chronic illnesses. Unfortunately, we have created a society where good health and well-being are not only difficult to achieve, but also incredibly difficult to maintain. We want results, and we want them now!

My goal as a Wellness Coach and Health Care Professional is to provide accurate, up-to-date information addressing well-being as a whole. Healthy eating, and exercise are important, but oftentimes the poor health habits we develop are in an attempt to compensate for other aspects of our wellness that aren’t so healthy. Wellness encompasses every aspect of our lives. Our relationships, self worth and awareness, sleep, work, finances, spirituality, stress, hobbies, happiness, fulfillment, medical conditions and the list goes on.

Through approaching wellness as a whole, I work with clients through one-on-one coaching as well as workshops to help them discover and achieve their ideal best life and become their best selves. An ideal life looks different for everyone, and it’s inspiring to be a part of the process of helping people explore and create what that looks like for them individually.

Over the last decade I have dedicated an immense amount of my time to not only studying about health care and healthy living, but also implementing what I have learned in order to create what I consider to be a “Whole and Happy” life for myself. You can read more about my journey on my About page as well as throughout my workshops

There is so much health information distributed online and through social media that it is difficult to know what information is accurate and worth implementing in your life. I have created this blog in an attempt to distribute thought provoking and research based health and wellness information. I will discuss how to evaluate whether information is coming from a credible source, if it is backed up by solid research, and how it might effect you in a positive or negative way. I will also share my own thoughts and insights about various wellness topics.

If you come across health information that seems to be a “trend” but you are unsure about how credible it is, please feel free to reach out to me and I would be happy to write a post about it.  You can contact me through email wprude@mywholeandhappylife.com or through my website. I would love to hear from you!

What should you really believe when someone says, “Studies show…” and then continues with some sort of lofty claim. Learn how to evaluate their validity for yourself. You will be surprised to find how little evidence there is to back up the latest “trends.”
