My purpose is to educate and empower you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about the food you eat, the environment you live in, and the many natural wellness therapies presently available.
My approach is very individualized, completely confidential, and wholeheartedly sincere. I balance my passion for what I do with a gentle flexibility and respect for individual needs and limitations.
I consider myself a student for life, as there is no end to the study of human health. I’m grateful to have this opportunity to share, and eager to make a difference in the lives of those around me.
Food is the foundation of our health. We are constantly rebuilding ourselves with it. Food becomes what we are.
As every one of your trillions of cells break down and rebuild themselves — which they constantly do — what would you prefer they be made of? What do you want to become?
These are not necessarily thoughts that come to mind every time the lunch whistle blows, but failing to ponder these questions at all has led the American public to an unnecessary health crisis.
My wellness program is centered around education, and addressing the root cause of what we are all trying to avoid – physical degeneration. There are a lot of names and subcategories of illness out there, but ultimately, problems always stem from repeated exposure to indigestible foods, and other stressors – both physical and emotional – that weaken cells, slow metabolism, increase stress hormones, and accelerate aging.
The purpose of my program is to help you learn the truth about how to maintain or regain health – and the fact of the matter is – this truth will vary from person to person.
