About Gaye Walden

You start out on a path, follow its twists and turns and ups and downs, and with patience, find that the path straightens and narrows to lead you directly to your purpose.



Gaye M. Walden, CHC, CMT

Certified Health Coach &
AAT Certified Medical Thermographer





After leaving a successful career in the hospitality industry in 2008, I decided to follow my longtime passion for health and wellness.  I completed the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Health Coach Training Program in 2009 and as a Holistic Health Coach work with individuals and small groups to help them lead an enhanced quality of life through better health.

My experience with **DCIS (Ductal Carcinona In Situ) in 2007 was the beginning of my journey to learn everything I could about breast health.  My research led me to learn about breast thermography and I had my first breast thermogram in 2011.

In May 2012 I trained with Bruce Rind, MD, a leading expert on breast health, to do breast thermography. Subsequently I trained with and received my certification from Gaea Powell with Reflection IR in California.  Propelled by everything I’ve learned about breast health and guided by Dr. Rind and Gaea Powell, I opened Holistic Breast Health in January 2013 to educate, empower and support women for good breast health.  Holistic Breast Health offers breast thermograms by appointment in Charlotte and the Carolinas.

When I’m not doing thermograms or supporting people for good health, I enjoy preparing  simple, local, seasonal whole foods for myself and loved ones, fitness walking and jogging, hiking, reading, yoga, tai chi and walking my dog Willie.
