I aim to empower others through health and knowledge

Making knowledge more accessible and easy for you is important to me.  That’s why I created this website.

I have an extensive background in integrative nutrition from Huntington University of Health Sciences and plant-based nutrition from Cornell University.  I believe evidence-based knowledge can help us make informed decisions about our health.

Sharing knowledge of nutrition is my passion

My name is Erik Anthony Leacock and I was born & raised in the Cayman Islands. When I was a teenage I moved to the United States and attended an academic boarding school in Minnesota. After high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force to become a Crew Chief on the A-10 Warthog and C-130 Hercules. During my six years in the Air Force, I was promoted to Staff Sergeant (E-5) and performed numerous temporary duty assignments worldwide, including two tours in Afghanistan. My experience of war during my time in the military created a significant shift in perspective on life and a change of my priorities in my life that led me to backpacking through Central and South America for three years. During that time, I began to follow my passion for teaching and healing others, which led to finding my purpose and resulted in my now new profession as a nutritionist.

On a mission to help others

I believe in empowering and helping individuals regain their health through nutritional eating and healthy lifestyle choices.  I have given more than 50 presentations and workshops in eight countries covering a wide range of topics.  I have worked and volunteered with several NGOs and local schools discussing a variety of topics, such as Caymanian Herbal Remedies, Moringa – The Miracle Tree, DIY Natural Body Products, and Healthy Eating for Kids.  As a recent nutrition graduate, I have chosen to turn one of my longtime dreams into reality by creating Conscious Earth as a way people can connect, learn, and heal through information, resources, and public speaking events. I am passionate and excited to share my knowledge with others and help individuals heal themselves.
