Check Out Lizeth Santamaria’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lizeth Santamaria.

Hi Lizeth, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I am a certified Holistic Health and Transformation Coach, The Lupus Coach®, Founder and Owner of Discover Your Power®, LLC. I am also a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner (CECP), Intuitive Healer, ISSA Certified Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach, and Transformational Specialist, as well as a motivational speaker, teacher, and trainer with over 15 years of coaching, speaking, leadership, and human resources experience. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Central Florida as well as her Master’s degree in Human Resources from Rollins College. My journey with health and transformation began in 2006 when I was diagnosed with lupus. Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body including skin, joints, and organs. Being diagnosed with lupus was not easy for me to accept, and it completely changed my life.

Eventually, instead of letting lupus control me and my destiny, I decided to empower and educate myself about my disease so I could live a happy and healthy life. Being diagnosed with lupus made me look at life differently, really appreciate each day I given, and live life to the fullest! It also helped me realize I was not happy the life I was living at the time and I also realized I was not working in my purpose. This realization made it clear to me that I needed to do whatever possible to change my life to be happier, healthier, and purposeful. Little did I know this would be the beginning of my spiritual awakening leading me on a journey to create a brand life that would help me begin to heal holistically and discover my life’s purpose to help and coach others. I ultimately decided to quit my corporate job, change my career to be a Life Coach, and founded Discover Your Power® in 2016. Now, as a Holistic Health and Transformation Coach, I take a holistic approach to help coach and empower people to heal, live purposefully and authentically, so they can transform their lives and create the life they want!

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
My journey to heal, transform my life, and live in my purpose was not easy. When I was 1st diagnosed with lupus in 2006, I was strongly encouraged to not workout anymore and stop doing a lot of the active things I enjoyed. This was years ago when there wasn’t a lot of research about lupus and holistic healing for autoimmune diseases. If you can imagine, I was devastated. At that time I was a runner but had to stop running because my lupus was too painful and out of control. I also gained 20 lbs. from taking prednisone (which is a steroid) to help control my lupus. It was the worst time in my life and for my health. However, I began taking steps to heal holistically which helped saved me in so many ways physically, emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually. Deciding to quit my corporate job to pursue my purpose of coaching wasn’t an easy journey either. I chose to walk away from a nice stable, reputable job with leadership status and title, nice consistent paycheck, and all that I worked hard for during my ten years career. But I knew it was the best decision I could ever make. What helped me get through my journey was my faith in God and His direction in my life. With God leading and supporting me, I just knew I was going in the right direction, and now through sharing my story I help others do the same to heal and live a life of purpose.
