I’m Dr. Zarya Rubin, MD. I’m a Harvard-educated physician, an integrative health & wellness coach, and a formerly stressed-out mom.
I’m passionate about helping smart women struggling with chronic health issues, stress, anxiety, and exhaustion take a deep breath, regain calm, take back control, and become energized and stress-proof! Why did I choose to do this work? Because I've been there...
When chronic stress, anxiety and burnout caused me to leave medicine, I knew I needed to make some serious changes if I wanted to lead a fulfilling, authentic life. I wasn't satisfied that illness and the hamster wheel of stress was my "new normal" and that I would just have to accept it and live with it. I knew I wanted better. I managed to get back on my feet, but then threw myself into another intense, highly stressful career with long hours. The truth is, I was chasing success in order to avoid dealing with the much scarier pit of anxiety that I tried to push away by avoiding dealing with it. And from the outside? I was more successful than ever.
But after I had my daughter, I entered a new phase of exhaustion, one that was even worse than being on-call overnight at the hospital. I was irritable, couldn’t get out of bed, and constantly ill. I was eating a healthy diet (I am actually one of those crazy people who adores kale and quinoa)? So why was I so sick?
None of it made sense to me until I finally realized that the mind-body connection was stronger than ever, and years of untreated stress, anxiety, and PTSD had taken a toll, not just on my mental health, but my physical health as well. I finally got help from physicians, healers, and a coach of my own, who all helped put me back together.
And so my journey of self-discovery has led me to holistic approaches to health and wellness, healing from the inside out, balancing mind and body. I am so happy with where I am today and would love to share what I've learned with you.
Empowering. Life-changing. In their own words:
“Working with Dr. Rubin has motivated me to make changes in almost every area of my life! I’ve lost 15 pounds, my mood is more peaceful because I’m beginning to accept things, instead of fighting against them."
“I actually reached out to Zarya initially because I wanted to lose weight, but soon after speaking with her I realized I needed to address other areas in my life to actually have the time to focus on myself.
Zarya was not only so kind and caring, but she gave me specific things to do so I could help myself. Instead of just saying "you need to take time for yourself" like so many others were telling me, Dr. Rubin helped me to figure out how I could actually do that. She held me accountable and she was consistently there for me along the way. She was the exact support I needed in my life and I would highly recommend working with her no matter what your looking to accomplish health wise. ”
We all know that we are supposed to eat healthy, exercise, get more sleep, and be less stressed - but the question is HOW? How to make these changes and how to make them sustainable? That's where an experienced coach comes in.
When choosing a health coach, make sure you find one who is certified, who has a background in nutrition and/or health sciences, and has experience with counseling and behavioral change.
