Beth Houser Coghlin

Beth Houser Coghlin, MS

Beth is the new owner of The Living Foods Institute. Early in life Beth learned the value of good health and natural healing from the balance of her medical Dr father and yoga teacher mother. Beth started her professional career as a Health and English teacher at a school for children with special needs, later serving as principal of the school. In the early 2000s, she left the school to open a yoga and natural healing facility, which she owned and operated until her father was diagnosed with a terminal brain disease, seven years later. Her concern for her father led her to return to graduate school and delve more deeply into her research about neuroplasticity, brain healing and the gut-brain connection. Her master’s thesis focused on the specific impact of yoga on neurological healing. In late 2018, Beth was thrilled to have the opportunity to acquire The Living Foods Institute from Brenda Cobb. She looks forward to its continued growth, eventual opening of new locations, and the opportunity to bring balanced natural healing to a broader market.

Our founder

Brenda CobbBrenda Cobb, our Founder, overcame breast and cervical cancer without the use of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery by following the simple principles that are taught in her Healthy Lifestyle Programs today.  She eliminated all allergies, migraine and sinus headaches, acid reflux, indigestion, heartburn, rheumatoid arthritis, age and liver spots, and gray hair.  Her eyesight even improved!  She is completely healthy and looks and feels many years younger than her actual age.  Brenda now devotes her life to educating and helping others.

Brenda was awarded an Honorary Cultural Doctorate in Therapeutic Philosophy from the World University in September 2003 for her work in helping people heal from diseases that the medical community thought were terminal, incurable and hopeless such as helping to improve ALS symptoms in Atlanta GA.
Mayor Shirley Franklin, former Atlanta, Georgia mayor, awarded Brenda the Prestigious Phoenix Award in November 2003 with the Proclamation "On behalf of the people of Atlanta, I commend Brenda Cobb, Founder of The Living Foods Institute for promoting healthy eating and healthy living.  The City of Atlanta Recognizes the importance of incorporating enzyme-rich organic Living Foods into the diets of its citizens and also, the healing it brings to the body, mind and spirit.  The City of Atlanta takes pride in your efforts to raise awareness in our community."

Brenda's Story

This is not your typical before and after story, this is the testimony of one woman’s all natural total healing from cancer and how she turned her personal health crisis into a gift for the world. In 1999 Brenda Cobb was diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer. Her doctor said she most likely would be dead in 6 months to a year if she didn’t do surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. She didn’t do anything the doctor recommended and she healed completely all the natural way!

Brenda’s reason for not wanting to follow her doctor’s recommendations was because many personal family members with breast, cervical, uterine and ovarian cancers had done chemotherapy, radiation and surgery only to have cancers return with a vengeance and to lose their lives.  Brenda knew that poisoning the body in the name of healing did not work and she was determined to find a different and natural way to support her body to do what it was created to do – heal itself.

How did she do it? Brenda nourished her body with all Organic, Vegan, Raw and Living Foods, detoxified and cleansed her colon, lymphatic system and blood; cleared out and healed emotional stuff she had buried inside, and in six months she was completely healed! Brenda used to be plagued with allergies, arthritis, depression, chronic fatigue, headaches and skin problems, but now that is all in the past. Today she is vibrantly healthy and radiant!
Her mission is to teach as many people as possible how to restore and maintain the most optimum health and to heal from any illness or disease by eating Organic, Vegan, Raw and Living Foods, detoxification and emotional healing. She is recognized as a foremost leader, healer and teacher in the Raw and Living Foods movement. Many thousands of people have attended her Programs, workshops and seminars and their personal testimonies are awe-inspiring.

She has authored many books, made numerous television and radio appearances and has taught thousands of classes about good health and healing naturally. She is a dynamic and charismatic woman who is certain to inspire you to become educated and enlightened and to take care of your most valuable asset, your health!

Brenda says,

“I know complete healing is possible when a person has real faith and belief. God created the body to be able to heal itself and it will when it is given what it needs to do the job.

Thousands of our students have been told by their doctors that they had diseases which were hopeless, terminal or incurable, but I believe and have seen with my own eyes that with God's help, positive thinking, emotional healing, cleansing, and optimum Organic, Vegan, Raw and Living Foods nutrition people can and do heal time and again.

It is imperative people learn how to properly take care of their own health.  Many times people don’t do better because they don’t know any better. When a person becomes educated in exactly what to do and then does it, the healing possibilities are limitless. Everyone can have good health, because with God all things are possible.”

Brenda has created programs to address and heal all types of diseases including even the most advanced and Metastasized Cancers, Type I and Type II Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Depression, AIDS, HIV, Hepatitis A, B & C, Herpes, Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Eczema, Psoriasis, Allergies, Sinus and Migraine Headaches, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, Leukemia, Hypo and Hyper-Thyroid, ALS, Anemia, Asthma, Fibroids, Endometriosis, Bipolar Disorder, Celiac Disease, Colitis, Dementia and more. If you are looking for hope to improve ALS symptoms in Atlanta GA or one of the above mentioned diseases, contact the Living Foods Institute.
