How I Took Control of My Health

I was misdiagnosed in 1997 and spent nearly 2 decades sick and in ill health because I was overmedicated with 17 prescription drugs. Between 2013 and 2017, I went on disability, and used plant- and energy-based healing to reverse 22 chronic conditions like small fiber neuropathy, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, heavy metals, PTSD, depression, anxiety and daily panic attacks. As a result of this lifestyle change, I also lost 92 pounds.

After learning about the power of plants and studying under functional medicine doctors, TCM doctors and decades of training with leadership professionals, I personally designed programs that allow you to get to the root cause of your dysfunction. For the majority of us, our dis-ease is tied to our emotions. The emotions can be driven by the toxins consumed, which is driven by our lifestyle choices. The toxins impair our ability to process our emotions and then it manifests as pain, skin issues, brain fog, the list is endless. Somethings are obvious, such as boxed food laden with chemicals and cane sugar. Of course, there are triggers from childhood as well and we all are tasked with doing the shadow work to let our bodies heal itself.

When I did the deep dive, I found the not so obvious culprits that most of us are not thinking about. Because I was willing to research, interview and test, I was able to reclaim my health and then design programs that help you improve your current health status. I have created a clear path to health for you and your loved ones.

If you are like me, you may have been making excuses for your pain, irritability, and mood swings, until you really can’t ignore them anymore. You may be confusing packaged food for healthy food. There is not a mistake that you have made that I have not already made myself. The great news is that in nature we have everything we need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Providing your body with the right nutrition, free from chemicals, adopting a food as medicine lifestyle, allows your body to heal itself.

A startling fact is that there has been a 75% increase in death by prescription medication since I wrote my story “Informed Choices” in 2016. Download here Nearly 92,000 people in the U.S. died from drugs between 1999 and 2020.

The key to great health is to make conscious choices to remove those things that do not fuel your soul, replacing them with those foods, people and thought forms that are for your highest good, and then you can receive the light and live by your highest values.
