I am Scarleth Castro, I wear many hats in a day; I'm a wife, student, nutritionist, scientist, educator and health researcher behind Spin Your Own Axis, LLC. I offer coaching centered around education, support and empowerment through my services.
I believe that education is empowering, and knowledge is power. The more we know; the better we can live, the healthier we can live, and the longer we can live.
With years of experience in coaching and continuous education in my academic career. I have found a passion in areas like stress, brain health and hormones in women and men's health and the connection it shares with food and movement to improve and promote preventative health.
In addition, I am passionate about the benefits of behavioral changes in nutrition and the importance and role health of movement plays in countless of areas in our body; for example to keep the lymphatic system healthy and build overall optimal health.
This is why my mission is to use science to drive change and connect education to improve and promote preventative health via food, movement and behavioral changes to help you thrive in health.
I want to make my client's adaptable to whatever situation they’re in, as well as to help improve and increase durability.
"Durability is giving clients the ability to do what they love better, longer and to not get hurt".
