Alison Lively, NBC-HWC

Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach

Alison started studying alternative therapies as a way to help herself, and from that experience was inspired to help others via health coaching and as an educator speaking to groups in our community about health and nutrition.

Alison Lively is a Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Natural Health Educator dedicated to bringing the most accurate, up-to-date, and helpful information to each individual and group that she works with. She has extensive knowledge in Iridology, Kinesiology, Herbology and Nutrition, and she also holds a doctorate in Naturopathy.

Alison’s own health issues with chronic, severe allergies prompted her journey to natural ways of healing. She exhausted her medical treatment options, maxing out on prescription nasal sprays and inhalers, decongestants, and antihistamines, so she turned to alternative therapies. The moment she began to focus on diet and natural supplements, she found relief for the first time and continued her education to study the science of Naturopathy: using means other than medicine to assist the body to heal itself.

Alison is still astounded by her own healing journey, and after helping thousands of people on their own health journey, not a day goes by that she does not feel grateful to have the knowledge and skills to help others learn self care.

Alison has over 18 years of experience working with every age group. She has authored and taught wellness courses for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Furman University and speaks throughout the community to educate and inspire people to take control of their health.

What do our clients say?

Pat D.

When I first started seeing Alison Lively over five years ago at Creative Living Wellness, I was not ill but wanted to learn what I could do to keep it that way. I have always approached my heath with a hands-on attitude. The first meeting with Alison was fascinating. Here was a person willing to explain and guide me on what works best for me. Alison and Alicia helped me create a personal plan that was right for MY body! Creative Living Wellness says it all. You create your wellness by learning what to eat. You improve your living by involving all the parts – mind, body and spirit.

All the tools to live a happy health life are available. There’s seasonal and specific food plans, supplements to aide areas in the body that need a little help, informative handouts, meditations for calming the mind, recipes, and book suggestions to further knowledge. Alison and Alicia are expert healers and are always interested in sharing information and ideas to help you become your healthiest self.

I see my regular doctor for an annual checkup and blood work. He laughs and says “Keep doing what you are doing. See you next year.”

Thank you Alison and Alicia for all that you do.

Randy T.

In this day of increased awareness of personal wellbeing, Alison has made a huge difference in my life. Although initially a bit skeptical, due to my engineering vocation, I quickly learned that Alison’s realistic approach to lifestyle changes was a good fit for me. I stayed with her recommendations and have never felt better. In combination with Alicia’s remarkable gift for mindful, personally crafted yoga, the result has been a phenomenal improvement in wellbeing: in mind, body and spirit. What an INCREDIBLE gift!

John T.

I have enjoyed practicing yoga under Alicia’s patient guidance for over four years and have greatly improved my flexibility. She has helped me control my back pain and other muscular discomforts. At age 74, I am more active and healthier due to her professional, caring work.

Barbara Z.

I purchased a jar of calendula salve with lavender to use on my hands. I have chronic dry skin with recurring eczema and this salve was wonderful! It moistened my skin and kept it moist!

I purchased some arnica salve to put on my achy stiff joints. I have osteoarthritis in my feet and hands and received relief. I rub it in thoroughly at night and in the morning. Any time I have any other aches or soreness this is the salve I use. I love it and so grateful for a natural product.

I purchased some comfrey salve and use it several different ways. With my chronic dry skin there are areas on my legs and arms I rub it in several times a week and it softens and heals my skin. Lately I have been applying it on several spider veins and have notice a change in the color and intensity of the veins. I love how my skin feels and looks after using it. I have also used this salve for my arthritis and achy joints and I achieve relief as well.

I have learned how to trade off using these salves. I like that these salves are easily absorbed and can be used several times a day. I encourage everyone to try these natural products.

Laura D.

Three years ago, my life changed drastically. After many doctors visits, limitless medications, upper endoscopies, blood work, amenorrhea, stomach pain so bad I could not sleep, I finally decided it was time to choose another route. The doctors diagnosed me with Gastro paresis which is well known as delayed stomach emptying linked to a stomach virus that I had in April 2010. This illness caused so many other issues to occur including acid reflux, doctors believing it was all in my head and even telling me I could possibly be pregnant. I lost a total of 38 pounds and became so sickly.

In 2012, I set up an appointment with Alison Lively. My life has not been the same since then because of prayers and this special lady, and now my friend! I have learned so much about my body, and the supplements she has introduced me to over the past few years have changed my quality of life. I was at my lowest weight of 107 pounds, and after a year I now weigh 123. I have learned to listen to my body, and I know now what I can and cannot handle. I have also started my menstrual cycle again after 2 years without any sign of a period.

I am so blessed and thankful that God has placed Alison in my life. I literally do not know where I would be without her!

Adawn S.

I was referred to Alison six years ago by one of her past clients. I just felt unhealthy. Not only was Alison the only one to convince me that I did not need to go to Burger King and order another Cherry and Cola ICEE, she led us in the right direction with our health and we were able to quickly conceive our second child.

I have referred many friends and family to Alison and she has been able to help so many of them.
