Health is everything. We all know this, and many of us take it for granted until issues arise, adopting an "out of sight, out of mind" approach to our wellbeing, rather than a pro-active one.
There's a tremendous amount of information out there, much of it contradictory, much of it from either the allopathic (western medicine) perspective, which is often inadequate to serve our needs beyond "the absence of disease” or else it's put forth by zealots and extremists outside the mainstream with their own agendas and limitations. Even capable, well-trained, well-meaning practitioners often have lots of knowledge and advice but not the answers that you need.
And yet? Each and every "modality" has a great deal to offer us; it's just that navigating them can be time-consuming and challenging (especially when we are not feeling well!)
I've trained and served as a healer, I've established wellness centers, fasting and cleansing programs, and I teach nutrition and mindfulness. I continue to create custom detox programs for individuals and groups. I've also navigated my own health challenges, some of which have been extreme, by experimenting with a wide array of treatments (including some of the most progressive, hi-tech integrative medicine modalities). In doing so I have become the beneficiary of much information, knowledge, and experience. With lengthy dietary "experiments" from Vegan to Paleo, Raw to Macrobiotic, after having been under the care of and/or working in association with doctors of the Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic and Naturopathic traditions, partaking in everything from ozone treatments to Panchakarma to Stem Cell Therapy, colon cleansing to shamanic healing, plant medicines to prescription medicines, I now specialize in supporting you with the following symptoms and treatments:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Anxiety and Stress Reduction
- Fasting/Cleansing/Detox (including heavy metal chelation)
- Pain Management
Whether your aim is to optimize already radiant health and wellbeing or to recover from illness and "dis-ease", I am here to help distill, explain, support and guide you through this often difficult, confusing, challenging terrain. I know it is easy to feel hopeless, exasperated, and exhausted dealing with all of this—that’s why I'm here.
True healing occurs as we learn to accept, and then embrace, the reality of our situations. Aside from all the physical treatments, much of the process involves reframing the symptoms as lessons, teachings, and even blessings (which often involves forgiveness for ourselves and others). This approach then guides us towards deeper self-knowledge and wisdom, towards greater balance and health.
