Guiding men & women to heal their mind, body, & spirit through plant-based nutrition & healthy lifestyle choices.

Ready to feel better than you ever thought possible?

We're Lisa & Joe, the couple behind Grit & Grace Healing, based out of Tampa, FL.

Just like you, we're on our own journeys to reclaiming our health and we're proof of what's possible.

We started taking consistent & committed action every day, and now we're seeing the results.

We can help you to do the same.

Your health & wellbeing is the foundation on which everything else in your life stands upon.

Want stronger relationships? Finances? Creativity?

Then focus on building a strong foundation your life can THRIVE on... because once you master your health, you can absolutely master your life.

A simple concept, yet MOST people are struggling with their health and feel like getting well is some big mystery! It seems like every other month someone has some kind of new health trick or fad diet to share, yet no one's actually feeling better.

The problem isn't that you don't know what to do. In fact, your body knows EXACTLY what to do to thrive. The real issue is that you were never actually taught what it needs!

It's time for that to change.

Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life

If you're like most people, you've gone through life believing that the only people who know what your body needs are those sporting white coats with letters next to their names.

While there's definitely a time and place to work with a physician or medical specialist, the TRUTH is YOU are way more POWERFUL & CAPABLE of healing yourself than you ever thought possible. No science or medical degree necessary. You're always the first line of defense when it comes to your health and wellness.

Quite simply, you just haven't been taught the ACTUAL FACTS about how the human body was designed to work, what it needs to thrive, and how to care for it.

And neither have most nutrition professionals or physicians. Bold statement, but it's true. Misinformation is rampant, and traditional education is infused with funding from the meat, dairy, and processed food industries.

Keeping us fat and sick is a lucrative business.

Thankfully, Health Mastery Institute stepped up to the plate. No pun intended.

They're teaching the science-backed FACTS about why humans were designed to THRIVE on a plant-based diet.

Our approach is grounded in 50 years of study that has proven that a high percentage of the diseases that kill most people in the western world – lifestyle diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer can be reversed with a high raw, moderate-to-low fat, plant-based diet.

As HMI health coaches, we're here to show you how to accomplish a plant-based diet the RIGHT WAY so you gain ALL the benefits WITHOUT the deficiencies that many people experience when they go plant-based.

Don't worry, if you're not ready for a 100% plant-based diet, we'll meet you where you are.

Us Before & During Healing

Image of Joe and Lisa before and during their healing journeys

A couple of people recently said to us "Wow, you two are like spring chickens now!" and "This is some Benjamin Button kinda shit!" LOL

The photo on the left was taken in 2018 during a season of peak inflammation when healthy eating & detoxification were the last things on our minds. Our smiles look forced, too.

While neither of us ever carried tons of extra weight, we still didn't FEEL GOOD and knew that the constant fluctuations in our physical, mental, and emotional health (even the subtle ones) were a sign that there were issues to face and heal once and for all... and we're so grateful we woke up and got to work!

The photo on the right was taken in 2021 after eating plant-based for several months, going through a Candida Cleanse, and boosting our body's detoxification with things like regular green juices and coffee enemas. Our smiles are more vibrant and genuine, and we're in a more calm, peaceful, and hopeful state of mind.

The simple idea behind health coaching is this:

The nutrients found in foods, as well as herbs, essential oils, and certain nutritional supplements, can support your health, enhance the quality of your life, physical, and mental well-being.

It really is that simple, but sadly, most people are lacking the basic knowledge to help them get started and filter out the truth from the lies when it comes to health. 

As health coaches, we provide you with the following kinds of services:

  • Dietary support and guidance as your transition into a healthier, more vibrant version of yourself.
  • Strategies you can use day-to-day to keep yourself on track to reach your health goals.
  • Education and research related to your specific health concerns and lifestyle.
  • In-depth diet & nutrition information based on science-backed research that works in tandem with your licensed healthcare professional (on a medications you want to say goodbye to? We'll provide recommendations you can propose to your doctor so you're always doing things safely and with proper guidance)

Does this sound anything like you?

Are you...

  • Finding it difficult to get answers to your health issues and keep going around in circles?
  • Feeling like a number every time you see your doctor and want more personal support?
  • Lacking the energy and mental clarity to live the kind of life your heart truly desires?
  • Finding it difficult to develop long-term, healthy lifestyle habits?
  • Sick of trying every fad diet out there and not feeling any better?

If so, maybe it's time you tried something you've never tried before. Something that will TRULY work.

If you're ready to prioritize your health and wellbeing, start working with an HMI health coach today.

Spoiler alert: That's us!

We can guide you though everything from dietary and lifestyle changes, juice cleanses, stress management, to coffee enemas (poop talk is totally normal around here), to the types of supplements that can target specific issues, and more.


Our goal is educate, empower, and encourage you to take control of your own health.

If you've spent a lifetime giving your body less than the love it deserves or just didn't know what you didn't know, it's time to get your body back into balance!

A Common Question for Health Coaches

"So how are you able to help people without a traditional medical/nutrition background?"

We loved the response to this question shared by the Admission Director of Health Mastery Institute so much that we're putting it right here in full display:

"People hire health coaches BECAUSE they've already exhausted traditional medical and nutrition options and still have no answers! As soon as a Health Mastery Institute health coach starts talking, people KNOW you have answers they haven’t found anywhere else before. The only time I’ve been asked about my nutrition education is when people are amazed at the results they have and ask me, 'You learned this all in an 8 month online nutrition school?' Yes! Yes, I did!!

People come to me BECAUSE I don’t have the traditional medical background. They’ve already exhausted the traditional medical options and still have no answers. The majority of my clients come to me when they’ve already tried everything else and their doctor’s long term solution involves living with an illness or pain while continuing to take medications with harmful side effects. This is also why we have registered dietitians, nurses, pharmacists, professors who teach nutrition in college, and even people from other health coaching schools enroll in Health Mastery Institute. Because we have answers they didn’t learn in traditional nutrition/medical education.

Are these answers hard to find? No, but they aren’t being taught in traditional degree programs. Why? Because these schools and programs are often funded by the very industries that are creating the illness in the first place. If you want to spend four years getting an expensive degree to be able to give people the same mediocre answers that have been keeping them sick, go for it! I chose HMI Nutrition School because I wanted to actually KNOW how to make a difference in my clients' lives, and I wanted to do it now!"
