"The concept of total wellness recognizes that our every
Thought, word, and behavior affects our greater health and well-being. And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually."
I am so excited about your interest in healing yourself and your body holistically. Congratulations on your interest and motivation to jump on board of an exciting and on-going journey to wellness, enlightenment, and revitalization of your body, mind, and spirit.
When people ask me what I eat on a raw food/plant based diet, they are often amazed by the varieties of natural and organic foods that make me feel amazing and satisfied each and every day of my life. As a raw foodist and individual who upholds a holistic perspective on wellness, I maintain a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, greens, superfoods, fermented foods, seaweeds, and sprouts of all varieties. I must also stress LIFESTYLE, as being a raw foodist has become less of a diet and rather a complete revolution and way of life for me.
I have gone through tremendous transformations and severe, BUT SPECTACULAR changes throughout my journey. My passion is to share my experiences and knowledge with you. I can hardly wait to see the revolution that you are about to experience and it gives me so much pleasure to have the opportunity to share with you!
My journey began severa; summers ago when I reached the lowest point of my life and overall health. I knew that I had to take a stance and heal myself rather than allowing the medical system and my own self medication continue to drag me deeper and deeper into illness. I embarked on a 21 day cleanse, and with each day, I began to feel lighter, healthier, and more alive physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
At the end of my 21 day transformation, I knew that I had begun a new life for myself, free of physical and emotional turmoil. I made a choice to continue down this path by inviting the raw and living foods lifestyle into my life. Since then, I have completed various cleanses and safe but effective fasting rituals to continue to bring my body and soul to a state of ultimate wellness and balance. My raw and living foods lifestyle is an on going cleanse in itself, so every day of my life has and continues to be true bliss! Along my journey, I have also ALWAYS involved physical activity, my own meditation techniques, colon irrigation, massage, and other body works. My holistic approaches to diet, nutrition, and lifestyle have enabled me to achieve a healthy and disease free homeostasis throughout my body.
I had suffered from several diseases and disorders for years. I was overly medicated and endured a few invasive surgeries and procedures, one in which my sacral nerve was severed to inhibit pain. I have come to admit that I was self medicating in truly disastrous ways due to my unhappiness, pain, depression, and lack of energy and self worth. Bringing myself back to a clean and healthy state on my own and maintaining my current lifestyle has proven to be my road to recovery and renewal. What an AMAZING journey and path to wellness, enlightenment, and clarity!
I have also made many changes to my life and work, resigning from a professional position in sales and marketing and focusing on finding my true niche. After many less than satisfying positions in my life, I graduated with Honors, earning a Masters Degree in Holistic Health and Nutrition. I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. My practice is geared towards healing naturally, restoring energy, strength, and balance, disease prevention, weight loss, detoxification and lifestyle, supplementation, and meal planning and preparation. I am always welcoming new clientele! In addition, I work with clients to help them better understand the benefits of raw and living foods and a plant based approach to diet, as well as cater and prepare healthy foods for purchase.
I revel in holistic health and nutrition and raw and living foods. I know that I have discovered my passion! Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping others achieve ultimate wellness and happiness. We have the power to change those things in our lives that are far from great and make the greatest of things even greater! “All Good Things Are Wild and Free”…and Raw, and I welcome the opportunity to help you become wild and free with me!
