How Nick Oddo Broke the Cycle of Depression and Transformed his Life
2008 graduate Nick Oddo is proof that the power to transform our lives lies solely within ourselves. Having battled depression for many years and feeling completely unfulfilled in his career, Nick knew he was not living the life he was meant to live.
In an attempt to heal his physical and mental health, Nick change his eating habits and was shocked when he discovered that his depression was actually linked to his unknown sensitivity to gluten. Inspired by his ability to heal himself through food, Nick left his 20-year career in banking and started pursuing his passion of improving his health and happiness and teaching others how to experience their own powerful transformations.
As a Positive Life Health Coach, motivational speaker, energy therapist, and founder of Ten Studio Hill, Inc, Nick is spreading his positive energy to the world and helping his clients heal their lives from the inside out.

What led you to explore the Health Coach Training Program?
I have always experienced some level of depression, mood swings and anger. But in the late 90' it was lasting longer and becoming increasingly more difficult to control.
I remember crying out to the universe for answers. My dad took his life at 54, and his dad at 35. I did not want to wake up one day and decide it was my last. I definitely didn't want my two children to ever suffer. Suddenly the magic of universal synchronicity set in and I was lead to an amazing "blood type diet” by a nutritionist who suggested I change my eating habits. I then discovered that gluten was causing my depression! I changed my diet and began to heal. I was amazed and wanted to learn more about food and it's relationship to health. My son's friend introduced me to IIN and I joined!
How did your life change after enrolling?
The program was everything I expected it to be and then some. It resonated with every cell in my body. I knew the minute Joshua started speaking I was involved in something very special and I needed to always be part of it. I knew this new knowledge was going to change my entire world and I would be able to share it with family, friends, and with whoever wanted to improve their health and life. I knew I had found my passion and I would spend the rest of my life improving my health and happiness and work with others to improve theirs.
What are you focused on now?
I am a Positive Life Health Coach, Motivational Speaker, Energy Therapist, Wedding Wellness Coach and Marriage Officiant. I am the founder of Ten Studio Hill, Inc. and have formed a Meetup Group Called: Truthful Simple Health with Nick Oddo, where we offer cooking classes, lectures, workshops, and so much more! I also offer one-on-one and group coaching and specialize in coaching others who suffer from depression, mood swings and anger.
What makes you and your practice or product unique?
At the same time I was awakened to the world of health and nutrition I was also awakened to the "law of attraction". This led me to the realization that we are the creators of our entire life and maybe even our entire existence. I call myself a Positive Life Health Coach because I truly believe we are all meant to live a happy, healthy and wealthy life while we are here and even beyond. I believe that we are responsible for each and every thing that occurs in our life and I help my clients understand that awareness of this fact will help them become better creators.
How do you help your clients be successful?
I help my clients understand that they were born with everything needed to live a happy, healthy and wealthy life. I help put them in touch with their mind, body and soul. I teach them to be better creators and to be mindful of their thoughts, words, and actions and how all three can contribute to the collective positive or negative energy on earth. When they stop listening to the chatter in their minds and learn how to control it, they’ll eventually eliminate their negative thought about themselves.
What do you love about your work?
Everything! When I’m speaking to family, friends, clients, students, I love that I can tell that a seed is being planted in their mind and that my words tap into their innate wisdom. As a Positive Feelings Coach I get to help others, especially our youth, understand they have wisdom and knowledge from the moment they are born and they can increase this wisdom by just asking. My work continues to help me heal in ways I never knew possible and the best part is that my clients heal me as much as I help heal them.
Is there a need for Health Coaches where you live?
There is always a need for more Health Coaches. There will be enough Health Coaches when each of us will be able to have one at our disposal whenever we need. I think it is so important that Health Coaches incorporate some lectures and workshops for the youth. Their understanding of this wisdom is priceless and so needed for the future of humankind.
