My journey started late in the Summer of 2014 while we were living outside of Dallas on Lake Texoma. I was clicking through Netflix one Sunday afternoon and decided to watch GMO OMG. Before watching that documentary, I had NO IDEA what a GMO was or how our food supply was being so terribly destroyed. Up to that point, I lived like most Americans….stressed from work, sought the short-term highs of shopping, enjoyed the wine and booze escape, bought and ate just about anything sold at the local chain restaurant, Wal-Mart or Kroger and started the next day with a giant sugary coffee. In all honesty, I just lived the life I was told to live…what I now call ‘in the box.’
After that first documentary I think I watched every other food related documentary on Netflix and finished by purging my entire kitchen. I decided that I would change my food habits to a Paleo-Primal diet that consisted of grass-fed beef, organic/antibiotic free chicken, farm-fresh eggs, heritage/nitrate free pork products and more organic vegetables. I steered clear of bread/wheat products, fast-food and boxed/processed foods. I also weaned myself off of caffeine and coffee. Why? Because I noticed that when the coffee/caffeine wore off the ‘hanrgy’ food cravings came back with a vengeance. I started by using small doses of caffeinated teas and gradually switched to caffeine-free herbal teas. While I didn’t make these food changes because I wanted to lose weight (rather I didn’t want to eat frankenfood), I did lose about 30 pounds.
Over the next several months as the weight fell off my skin cleared up, my energy improved, but I still couldn’t sleep through the night. In the new year, we took up a residence back in Dallas and split our time between the lake and the city. It was great to be back around so many healthy food options and I decided to join a gym. I took advantage of an offer to meet with a trainer and decided to do a food sensitivity test performed via a blood test.
As you can see I was already on the right diet track for what my body needed at that time. I used this screening to further eliminate most dairy products and eggs. I did continue to consume corn products but only if they were non-gmo/organic. As 2015 went on, I had a neighbor and friend that was equally interested in food and she also re-introduced me to essential oils. I had dabbled with them in the early 2000s and had a very small, neglected stash, but soon refreshed my supply. We started making products together like salves, scrubs, toothpaste and home cleaners.
Up to this point in my life, I had only really used three types of doctors:
- A primary care physician that I never saw unless I got an acute infection for which many times he didn’t even have me visit his office, rather he would call in an antibiotic to the local pharmacy on my behalf.
- A dermatologist that froze off sun spots or cut off moles and had me on a low-dose of antibiotic for cystic acne that never cleared up until I cleaned up my diet by going Paleo/Primal.
- An OBGYN that had delivered my son and saw me for my annual gynecological visits. This was who I primarily discussed any health concerns with.
The very beginning of my ‘losing faith’ in MDs started when I questioned one of my doctors about GMOs. I naively thought he would be excited and supportive of my discovery and diet changes, but conversely he laughed and told me, “No, no GMOs are completely safe and helping us feed people all over the world.” Wow! How could he make that claim when there is no scientific consensus on the safety of GMOs? When it comes to our (and the world’s) health, shouldn’t we err on the side of caution? The reality is there are no credible, independent long-term feeding studies that prove the safety of GMOs. We are at the mercy of the large agricultural companies. For now, we are their guinea pigs, our farmers their prisoners and our food supply and farm lands forever adulterated. Thanks to GMO products, we ingest more chemical-based pesticides than ever before. Did we not learn our lesson with DDT? Whether he didn’t know it, acknowledge it or care, I expected more from someone I trusted with my health concerns. More on GMOs here.
I should also mention while I made all these changes to my eating habits, I also made changes to my drinking habits. I started drinking alcohol in my early 20’s and over the years it just became a part of my everyday life. I drank beer, wine, liquor and in 2015 when I went Paleo/Primal decided that I would improve my quality of alcohol too. I thought going to a clean organic vodka with a low/no calorie OR unsweetened fruit juice mixer would be the least harmful to my health. In 2015, I also quit any drinks that included high-fructose corn syrup, caramel or artificial colorings or GMO beet sugar.
As 2015 progressed and turned into 2016, I continued to enjoy my food successes, but ultimately hit a plateau of food boredom and regression. Unhealthy food choices and allowing too much ‘busy-ness’ into my life had me to turning to a daily alcoholic beverage for relief. One week over the Christmas holiday late 2016, a documentary was airing called ‘The Truth About Cancer‘ and I decided to watch all 9 hours. This is where my passion for alternative health took root and I discovered all those that came before me, like Gerson, Mercola and Hulda Clark. This was also the week when I had to pick my jaw up off the floor and redefine my life again. NO WAY was I going to stay living ‘in the box’ just to inevitably wind up with cancer. I felt freshly armed with knowledge about the medical industry in America and how down right evil big pharma truly is. I was primed for an overhaul once again.
While this is a whole other topic and the subject of my other blog, Craft The Mind, I also asked myself if our food supply is being ruined and our medical system is corrupt, why do I trust our educational system? I bought tickets for a local homeschooling convention coming to town the next month and began pursuing information. The day I was at the convention, I received a phone call from my mother in the hospital that she had been given a diagnosis of cancer specifically stomach and duodenum cancer and cirrhosis of the liver. When we asked the oncologist what her diet should look like, she replied, ‘Oh, just how she has been eating.’ Wow, just Wow! Another MD with no nutritional healing insight or advice. Thankfully I was fresh off the ‘Truth About Cancer’ series and knew my mother could not pursue traditional methods or stay on SAD (Standard American Diet). Again thankfully she was in agreement to pursue alternative therapies.
I started with a site called Cancer Tutor where I learned to start my research with her type of cancer. She started the Budwig-Cellect diet/protocols and stopped drinking alcohol. Over the next 30-60 days she improved significantly. Had healthy weight loss, had energy return, and reduced if not eliminated many symptoms that put her in the hospital to begin with. She did well for months until she started regularly consuming alcohol again. In the end what stole her life was her addiction to alcohol and the disease finally consumed her body when she passed in December of 2018.
Not long after her diagnosis in the Spring of 2017, I started having pain under my rib cage on the right side. I spoke to one of my 3 doctors about it and he dismissed it as intestinal gas. Later that spring, I made a trip to the ER and received a diagnosis of gallstones. I was presented with one option at the hospital which was to have my gallbladder surgically removed. Side effects of the surgery? IBS anytime you consume fried, oily foods. Increased chances of intestinal cancers. Stones forming in the liver. I declined and opted to research natural solutions. During my research on my mom’s behalf, I had learned of a protocol called Gerson Therapy which has been successfully used by many diagnosed with cancer and advanced disease. In short it is a therapy based on high levels of fresh green juices and coffee enemas. I used this therapy along with gallbladder and liver flushes from The Cure for All Diseases by Hulda Clark. I also found a naturopath and had a thermography done. Ultimately gallstones are just the side effect of deeper problems and no way was I going to just ‘cut them out’ and pretend my problem was fixed.
I learned I had a very sluggish lymphatic system and didn’t detox well. This was later reinforced by genetic testing and discovering my homozygous status for C677T MTHFR gene. I started taking suggested supplements and using her RIFE system. I had read about RIFE during my cancer research and was ecstatic to learn I could try it out at her office. By that fall I was sold on the effectiveness of RIFE and in October of ’17 invested in my own system. I started regularly using the system, quarterly gb/liver flushes and Gerson therapy over the next 18 months.
Additionally, I quit drinking alcohol in August of 2017. Many factors went into this decision, my own health and watching my mother’s demise were big factors, but as a life long drinker I didn’t feel connected to who I truly was or could be as long as I had alcohol in my life. It was such a crutch in my life that kept me from being the best version of myself. I never slept through the night or truly ever detoxed the alcohol from my system until I finally quit. I have made the voluntary choice to stop poisoning my mind, body and spirit. Now almost 2 years sober, I sleep through the night, have no more obsessive thoughts/worries at 3am and have improved my overall day-to-day happiness. I didn’t and probably couldn’t realize what depressant effects alcohol was having on me until truly being free from it. Out of all the healing changes I implemented, this was hands down, the best decision I ever made.
By time I returned for my follow up thermography in October of 2018, I had many improvements. Thyroid issue was improved, high systemic viral load and inflammation was greatly reduced, lymphatic drainage was better, but not perfect. My ‘toxicity’ levels were high due to all the die-off from Rife therapy (which is normal when killing large amounts of pathogens quickly). Fatigue is a real side effect but support from Gerson therapy helped clear it faster and I rested as often as needed. Healing happens when we sleep and it’s important to respect when your body needs it!
After the 2nd thermography, I really felt that I was at a point of needing to fine tune the issues that were left. I made an appointment with an ElectoDermal Screening Technician. She was able to pinpoint exactly the remaining issues and I only used RIFE therapy to work on them. Three months later, I went in for a follow up scan and only 1 of the 5 issues remained. I decided to take a homeopathy tincture she tested on my body for the last issue.
During early spring of 2019 I decided that ElectroDermal Screening was such a valuable tool in my healing journey that I wanted to own and train on the device. Today I am a certified EDS technician. About the same time, I started reading the Medical Medium series of books. What an eye opening series into so many mystery illnesses. I immediately implemented celery juice and the heavy metal detox smoothie into my daily routine and have felt renewed energy and a clearer mind ever since. During my EDS training, I looked at several case studies including my own. Interestingly during an EDS allergy screening, I had several of the same food sensitives as were found in the blood screening five years earlier. Amazing technology!
After reading the MM series and collecting knowledge over the years about plant-based diets, I decided that I wanted to make one more large diet change and eliminate beef, chicken, pork and any products from these animals from my eating habits. I do consume fish and organic ground turkey on occasion. I have substantially increased my fruit intake and am no longer in ‘fruit fear’. What a wonderful blessing to have my eyes truly opened to such a rich, life-giving group of foods….FRUIT! A wonderful side effect from these diet changes has been healthy weight loss and excellent bowel health. MM discusses many herbs and their use as teas. I love herbal tea and have completed a certification as a master herbalist. In addition to morning celery juice, HMDS and herbal teas, I also consume 8-16 oz of fresh, vegetable/fruit juice in the afternoon. Not only does this curb my appetite until dinner time, but it gives me a healthy energy boost versus a caffeinated beverage.
Additional things that helped me along the way were regular chiropractic adjustments, emotion coding (emotional release), hot yoga, meditation, yin yoga, nidra yoga, vision boarding, life mapping and allowing myself to explore new spiritual guidance.
I hold a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Microbiology and a Master’s degree in Business from UTA. I studied dietetics and the culinary arts along the way. Since then I have obtained certifications as a Naturopath, ElectroDermal Screening Practitioner, a Certified Microcurrent Resonant Frequency (Rife) Therapist and Master Herbalist. I have spent extensive hours reading materials in subjects ranging a variety of holistic health topics. I am a lifelong learner and dedicated to the study of non-pharma drug/device related therapies as a first line measure to living in a disease free state. My goal is to share my compounded knowledge, educate you on various modalities for re-balancing your body, and empower you to trust your intuition and take back your health.
You learn in homeopathy that disease and imbalance are cleared from the top down, inside out and backwards in time. In the Medical Medium, he says that for every year of unhealthy living, it takes a month of healthy living to heal. The journey takes time and dedication, but if you are lost in your search for vitality, reach out to me. I am interested in working with like-minded, receptive people willing to do the hard work of moving ‘out of the box.’ Maybe that’s you? Request an complimentary phone call here.
Update as of Jan 2021. It has been almost a year since I closed my office in Dallas and moved to Hawaii. Part of this decision was out of a love for the island/desire to live here and in part to get out of a hectic city during the ‘pandemic’ and riots. Living in Hawaii these last months has shown me a slower pace of life that I love. There is a reconnection to the familial life and to Gaia. I have not yet re-formed a natural-healing base of practioners, but do feel that I’m far enough in my healing journey that I may just continue to self-care for now until I find the right people to support me. I continue to use my Rife machine weekly for preventative and supportive care, but otherwise have not experienced any health issues. My diet is not as strict as at previous times, but is still focused on local, whole foods and I am at 1,252 days of sobriety (still best decision I ever made!). I am working on meditating. It is a practice I’m challenged by and need to be better at incorporating DAILY.
