Change. The. Future.

For the first time in history, this generation of children is anticipated to have a shorter life expectancy than that of their parents.

At In Balance Lifestyle Management we are passionate about changing that statistic by supporting families to create an inheritance of health for their children.

Why Our Mission Matters:

  • 50% of the toxins that have ever been formulated have been made in the last 100 years. - Dr. Steve Nugent, former head of the American Naturopathic Association
  • Over the past three decades childhood obesity rates have tripled in the US and Canada. Today, one in three children is overweight and one in six is obese.
  • Previously considered "adult" diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease are impacting children and teens at unprecedented levels.
  • In the last 50 years suicide rates among children in the 10-14 year age range have increased fourfold, with a 120% increase from 1980-1992 alone.

About our families

Kids in Balance (KIB) families have increased physical energy, enhanced mental clarity, balanced moods and, in the families that were carrying extra weight, collectively released hundreds and hundreds of inches.

“I can’t thank you enough for all your help! Our son is disciplined and has taken ownership. This is going to help him his whole life!” - Kevin's mom

"Our family has been
dramatically impacted by implementing the changes that your program teaches. . . we used your principles to learn how to eat for health, change our attitudes toward life, and be an example to others of just how much a family can change with education and inspiration!" - a Langley mom

"As a parent with two special needs children . . . I have often felt overwhelmed trying to implement a plan for my kids to fight physical imbalances. The principles that I learned from KIB give my children the advantage of a strong physically healthy platform from which to face their other challenges.” - Laurel A.

“I am so excited for my daughter, and for my family, for being a part of KIB and for your vision for helping to make children healthier.” - Meghan's mom
