Hi, my name is Michael Sanders.
I specialize in helping men and women, ages 40+, who are at risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s to get off the hamster wheel of hopelessness and despair and instead reclaim their health and live an active, independent, and fulfilling life. I founded Accelerating Wellness over 10 years ago to help my clients make sustainable lifestyle changes and optimize their cognitive health, physical health, and mental/emotional health.
I’m a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, a ReCODE 2.0 Certified Health Coach, and a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach. I’ve trained with Apollo Health, the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, The Institute for Functional Medicine, Duke University’s Center for Integrative Medicine, and The Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’m also a Certified Somatic Coach through The Strozzi Institute. I’ve done ontological and leadership coursework with Aletheia, the Newfield Network and the Institute for Generative Leadership. I received my MBA from Fordham University and my undergraduate degree from Boston University.
Outside of work, I enjoy having meaningful conversations with friends and family, dancing, and being in the great outdoors. I recently moved to San Diego to be closer to my daughters and to live my own life with greater dignity, purpose, and vitality.
One more thing… I’m writing a forthcoming book, Integral Wellness: The 7 Practices for Optimizing Hope, Well-being, and Cognitive Health.
