When my mother died at 50, and my brother died at 51, and my own health started failing me, I found myself looking for answers outside the medical norm. I didn’t want to be one of those people on many medications to survive. I had my own "aha" moment, and I chose a different path of holistic health, which required a lot of education.
I had been working in the medical field for 35 years. I began working at a laboratory in 1969, acquiring my certification as a Histologist (HT/ ASCP), a technologist in pathology. I earned my certification in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Neurolinguistic Programing (CHt/NLP), focusing on a holistic approach to working with the mind and body to help others live a better life.
In 2001, I became a Homeopathic Therapeutic Coach (HTC) and started Homeopathic Weight Management (HWM). I still continue to learn today, acquiring more than 80 hours of continued education units every year. In 2014, I became a Certified Biological Medical Practitioner (CBMP).
As my medical knowledge increased, I was concerned at my findings. Often times, western medicine solutions put a "band aid" on medical issues with pain and symptom relief, but I felt that they did not address the root cause happening in the body.
My family has a history of weight issues and poor eating habits. One of my earliest memories was laying on the couch with stomach pains and bloating. What I didn’t know was that I had food intolerances which created a lack of proper digestion.
In my 30s, I was in a rut, eating highly processed, unhealthy "fast foods", and Coca Cola. It’s no surprise that my weight fluctuated as I searched for the quick fix by "yo-yo".
Through my trusted and now improved combination homeopathic Evoke, people can achieve a healthy balance between nutrition, exercise and mindfulness. I have learned that weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle begins with a positive attitude. I am always looking for ways to help others on the same journey that I’m on, because we’re all in this together.
Health and happiness,
