Interview with health coach Camilla Tromborg

Are you interested in health and wellness? Then this interview is for you!

In this interview I met the lovely, gentle and amazing Camilla Tromborg. Camilla is a trained holistic health coach and is simply one of the sweetest and most interesting people I have met.

In this interview, she talks about her own path into the world of health, her work and gives tips for health and wellness. Read on and be inspired by this wonderful woman...

Would you like to tell us a bit about yourself and what you do on a daily basis? 

Of course! My name is Camilla, and I work in a health food shop and have just graduated as a Holistic Health Coach. I am building my own coaching business where I dream of helping young women who are facing some of the same issues I have been going through - digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, impure skin - and last but not least, lack of self-esteem and self-love. I have big dreams and visions of helping women feel better about their physical bodies, but more importantly, teaching them to love and accept themselves.

As a Holistic Health Coach, I work with clients in long-term programs where we look at their lives as a whole. Of course I look at what can be optimised in terms of their diet to improve their health and overall wellbeing - but we will also look at other, equally important, aspects of their life - are they pursuing a career they like? Do they have good relationships? How is their financial situation? etc. We'll look together at their life as a whole, and see how we can improve their situation. Because you can eat all the cabbage and vegetables you want, but it doesn't necessarily make you happier if you're going day in and day out at a job you hate.

 

Can you enlighten readers a bit on how you ended up on the shelf you're on now?

Oh yes, it's a long journey. My interest in the more alternative world of. Health, comes after I've had many problems with various things throughout my upbringing. When I was a child I suffered from really many digestive problems which were really problematic for me in my everyday life. I had blood tests but wasn't allergic to anything and that was kind of it. Then as I got older I started to do my own research into what might cause digestive problems, and that's when I started experimenting with different things and paying more attention to what was giving me problems. Because of all the digestive problems in my childhood, it also made my immune system go way down in my youth. I got sick really often in high school, and then I started getting hormonal acne too. And I think every young woman who suffers from blemished skin knows what that does to her self-esteem.

"...health is much more than just what you eat and how much you exercise. Most of all, health is about feeling good about life and being happy with, accepting and loving yourself."


Then came the time to choose education, and there I have in reality probably just "done what everyone else did", and made the safe and right choice. So I ended up doing a Bachelor's at CBS, followed by a Master's. But in the later years of my education, I could feel that something wasn't quite right - that this wasn't the path I should be taking.

My interest in helping and inspiring others has really always been there, but has really increased in the last few years. So when I graduated and lost a job, I knew the time had finally come to follow the educational path I was REALLY passionate about. So there I enrolled in a holistic health coach training - and it really has been the right fit for me. I developed so much during the year I took the course, and my belief in myself and my dreams and visions has grown even more.


Do you have some sort of routine when it comes to health and wellness that you follow?

Certainly, there are many different things, both when it comes to internal and external health care. Every morning I meditate, as it gives good peace of mind and a great start to the day. Then I write down what I am grateful for and some positive affirmations. 

In terms of health, I drink at least one cup of green tea every morning. It's something I've been doing for the past several years, and is a regular part of my morning ritual. Green tea is packed with antioxidants and is super good for us! In addition, I focus on drinking plenty of water and eating lots of vegetables. Then, of course, I take a variety of supplements to give my body the best conditions. In addition, I have a lot of other small health habits that I make use of every now and then, both lots of green smoothies, facial massages, dry brushing of the body, etc.

And I have become very good at noticing what my body needs. I certainly haven't always been. Back in my childhood and youth, I didn't listen to it at all if it was hungry and had low blood sugar, for example, or if my brain needed a rest - I often just drove on, wanting to keep up with everyone else, which often meant I ended up feeling bad physically. To this day, I am incredibly quick to sense what my body needs, and I listen and give it what it needs - because my body and my health are the most important thing.

 

What is the best health advice you have received?

That health is much more than just what you eat and how much you exercise. Most of all, health is about feeling good about your life and about being happy, accepting and loving yourself. Learning to love and accept yourself as you are is probably the best thing you can do for your own health. But, it is also one of the hardest things.

What are some of the most important things we as humans need to know about health and wellness, do you think?

That it's really super simple - and we all know what "health" is, we just often overcomplicate it or don't get it done. We all know that eating more vegetables and unprocessed food is good for us. We know we should drink plenty of water. We know we need to move our bodies and that fresh air is good for us. The problem is the disconnect between knowing something and doing something - and that's really where I want to help people. Every time I have sessions with someone and I ask them what they think is the most important thing they can do to improve their health - they all know the answer. The problem is that they don't.

So there's a big imbalance between the knowledge we have and the implementation of it in our lives. There is a lack of action.

You yourself have clients in process and help them with their problems. Is there anything that you think is often common to what your clients are struggling with?

I think a lot of people come to tutors, coaches etc. Because of the more "external factors", like digestive problems, unclean skin, weight loss and whatever else - but what it often stems from is a lack of self-acceptance, self-love and self-esteem. It all starts in and with ourselves. So if we want to go in and change the external factors, we have to go in and work with ourselves and our own beliefs.

Who inspires you most in the world of health?

Oh, well, there are just SO many inspiring people in this world! Louise Hay has really inspired me in terms of how important our own self-esteem and self-acceptance is to our health. I also find Bruce Lipton and all his knowledge about Epigenetics super inspiring. I am also a big fan of Deepak Chopra, and if you look within your own country, Tina Lykkegaard inspires me a lot too! I could go on, there are so many inspiring people in this world.
