Meet The LFI Team

Beth Houser Coghlin

M.S. Ed, Owner/Director of The Living Foods Institute at Tula Health

Beth is owner and director of Living Foods Institute at Tula Health. Early in life Beth learned the value of good health and natural methods of optimizing immune function from the balance of her father, a medical doctor, and her mother, a yoga teacher at their local church. 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 wellness co-op, which she owned and operated until her father was diagnosed with a terminal brain disease. Her concern for her father led her to return to graduate school and delve more deeply into research about neuroplasticity and the gut-brain connection. She looks forward to the continued growth of Living Foods Institute at Tula Health and the opportunity to work with other practitioners in both the medical and holistic community to bring balanced, nature-based methods of optimizing health to a broader market. To more easily meet the needs of the many participants who currently must travel to Atlanta for the LFI programs, Beth's hope is the eventual opening of new locations.

Brenda Cobb

Our Founder


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.
There are many more cherished teammates, teachers, volunteers, partners and healthcare professionals who are not listed, but just as valued!
