I continue to learn, take classes, and research peer-reviewed studies, but through all my training I have come up with techniques that can make true change, and lifestyle tips that are reasonable to follow.
I’ve been passionate about health since the age of 18, when I decided I needed to make a big change away from fast food and soda. My early health endeavors included fad diets, chemical food replacements, and skipping multiple meals in a row. But I became truly immersed in holistic health after a debilitating back injury at the age of 20. Frustrated with the limits of biomedicine, my first visit to the chiropractor changed everything. We didn’t just concentrate on my injury…we explored the connection that stress, my past, my diet and my attitude had on my health. We even addressed my life-long auto-immune stomach issue using different modalities. I began to feel better than I ever had. From day one I was hooked, and I tried many alternative therapies. I tried yoga, strength training, massage, acupuncture, herbs, sound therapy and energy healing. I have eaten up countless books, seminars, and classes, and even sought out Shamanic healers deep in the rainforest. To this day, I continue to learn, take classes, and research peer-reviewed studies, but through all my training I have come up with techniques that can make true changes, and lifestyle tips that are reasonable to follow. I don't tout any one form as the "ultimate" modality, since we all need balance, and every body is going to have it's specific needs to get there. We're all unique, and so a program catered to your body and your experience will yield the greatest results.
