Silvia Revenco is a holistic nutrition coach and health educator living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
After struggling with fast food addiction and health issues that resulted from it, she became passionate about learning all about the science behind nutrition, plant and natural remedies, as well as the power of our own minds to create the life we desire.
Now she teaches, coaches, and inspires others to step into their power and take charge of their wellbeing, in order to heal and thrive. A fermentation and raw chocolate fan, Silvia helps others live life to the fullest through individual coaching, educational workshops, and the highest quality raw chocolate and superfoods.
Her work has been featured in The Coast and Metro Halifax.
I was born and grew up in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, a small beautiful country in Eastern Europe.
I grew up in a culture where most people cook their own wholesome food, use folk natural remedies, where fast and processed food were very rare enjoyed at special occasions only, and good nutrition as key to good health is just common sense.
As kids my brother and I spent a lot of summers with our grandparents in the countryside. They grow their own food, farm animals, and make their own wine from grapes they grow. I’ve been lucky to participate in chores like gardening, cooking, jam making…you get the picture. I say lucky – I’m definitely more grateful now than then. 🙂
At the age of 16 I got accepted to a college and moved to London (England) on my own, where I lived for 8 years. I met my ex-husband there and moved across the pond to Halifax in Canada, where I’ve been since.
Since moving to the Western world I’ve come to notice of many more health issues and allergies that I hadn’t seen before, affecting many people, young and old.
I got addicted to fast food myself, which was in abundance everywhere! Fried chicken, burgers, take outs, pizza…you name it.
My first part-time job was at McDonald’s. After a short time of drinking unlimited pop, water became boring, and every day at work I couldn’t stop thinking (obsessively!) about what I would choose to have for my 3-course lunch.
It wasn’t long before I became overweight and started having hormonal problems, having to get medical help back home after not getting much help from the multiple doctors I saw in London. I was told I HAD to lose weight and fix my eating habits or I wouldn’t be able to have children if I continued this way. So I got back to basics, started cooking more and cutting out processed food, lost weight and got my health back.
From there I wanted to learn more about how nutrition impacts our health, so I started on a journey of studying intensively and went down the health “rabbit hole”. I also started learning about all the chemicals in processed foods, and other products we use regularly, that keep us sick and unhappy.
In London my ex had developed a severe stomach ulcer and IBS, and by applying what I was learning to him, after years of agony he was able to heal by following a strict diet and supplementing with various herbs.
After graduating I worked my way up to a management position in a MLM company, knocking on doors and being paid 100% commission for 1.5 years. This was a HUGE life school. I learned about sales, entrepreneurship, perseverance, hard work, team building, human psychology and even the law of attraction.
That’s when I became fascinated with self-development, the power of our thoughts, and became certain that I want to own my own business in something that I’m passionate about.
In the last few years I quit office jobs that I was dreading, and instead took minimum wage barista and serving jobs. I started my business making raw chocolate and teaching classes on health topics. I left behind a relationship that was holding me back and that was quite toxic to my growth and wellbeing.
I’ve come a long way from a few years ago, and am so much happier… Every day I strive to improve and learn more, and become the best version of myself so I can help others as much as I can.
I believe that life is all about balance. I believe in being compassionate and kind to everyone and everything, because it all comes back to you. I believe that food is the beginning of the path to fulfilling your potential, because only by feeding yourself nourishing food you can show up and be the best you can be for those around you.
My mission now is to inspire, empower, and help you to live your absolute best life, full of joy and happiness.
