About Mike Horner  – Health Coach at Grassroots Functional Medicine

Mike earned his BS in Animal Sciences at UVM, he pursued his passion for paramedicine, and worked as a Nationally Registered Paramedic for 35 years. Through this experience, he observed up close how sedentary lifestyles, poor nutritional choices, toxic environments and poor stress management skills created an explosion of chronic disease. He saw that unfortunately, most people who become chronically ill seem to remain chronically ill, cycling from one medical specialist to the next, without the support or expectation of ever recovering. He has since navigated his own health crisis’, personally experiencing the benefits of regular exercise, healthy eating and a positive mindset. In 2015, he returned home from a four day hospitalization following open heart surgery and proceeded to walk 100 miles in the next 14 days. He is ecstatic to partner with people who are searching for root causes of their disease and are willing to commit to the work of reclaiming their innate health.
