About LiveWell Louisiana
Welcome to LiveWell Louisiana, a new local initiative developed by a group of concerned citizens to promote healthy lifestyle choices wherever people live and work. LiveWell is a valuable resource for those who are looking to get connected to health and wellness information and supportive services.
As a community-focused initiative, we are developing a multifaceted approach to create community awareness and involvement to help normalize the concept of healthy choices, empowering more people to take charge of their health. We also serve as a an organizational partner for those in the community who want to achieve the same goals, but may not have sufficient resources in order to get the job done. We work in collaboration with health and wellness providers throughout the region, focusing on promoting relevant issues that matter most, while providing timely and applicable information in a supportive environment.
Our objective is to educate and inspire children and adults to embrace healthy eating and active living, because when more people make healthier choices, life improves for every Louisianan.
About the Founder
Maria Muro, Founder & President
As President of LiveWell Louisiana, Maria Muro’s goal is to inspire Louisianans to take control of their health. Her passion for healthy living is a rich resource that empowers both her clients and the greater Louisiana community.
An Integrative Nutritionist, Maria creates a supportive environment while providing a wealth of knowledge of food, nutrition and physiology. She has studied all the major dietary theories and uses practical lifestyle coaching methods to create and nurture happy, healthy bodies. She knows that there is no single diet that works for everyone.
Most approaches to nutrition dwell on counting calories, carbs, fats and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, Maria focuses on the whole person, creating fulfilling lifestyles that are flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. She relates her own personal struggles and experiences, sharing a positive attitude to help overcome mental and emotional obstacles.
Drawing on long relationships with local healthcare partners, Maria brings a fresh approach to delivering health and wellness information. As the publisher of New Orleans Living Magazine and the host and producer of Doctors New Orleans, a television show focusing on health news and advice, Maria is deeply connected with the health needs of others. With LiveWell, she plans to offer these health resources and more to all of Louisiana.
The path to wellness centers on the whole person, mind, body and spirit. Maria’s holistic approach supports gradual, lifelong changes that enable communities to reach their health goals.
