If you are new to natural medicine, as I was just a little over 12 years ago, you will be amazed at what we are not taught in school, even nursing school.
I thought herbal healing was something the Indians in North America used to do.
Chinese Medicine seemed foreign.
Never heard of homeopathy. Though later I found out my Mom's physician as a child was a homeopath.
Ayurvedia? "What was that?" (let alone how to pronounce it;)
"Energy medicine" sounded woo-woo to me.
I certainly did not understand the true the role food and health. I thought all I needed was to be sure I ate some vegetables.
When I was a young nurse with 2 young children, I was exhausted, in pain, and not sure what was wrong with me.
I ate a "healthy diet", was active and doing all the things a normal nurse and mom does.
My job was fun as I worked in obstetrics at that time.
I later also worked in many nursing fields including Intensive Care, Coronary Care, and the Emergency Room. I gave vaccines as a Public Health Nurse and visited many moms and babies as a Maternal Child Health Nurse.
Currently I not only do Health Coaching, as well as , including Bowen Therapy, I am also the President of the Michigan Holistic Nurses Association.
My husband, Mike is a pharmacist. He opened his first store back in 1981. That was the year our second child was born.
Our family gradually grew to four children. Both boys had attention/focus problems in school.
My children were raised on the Standard American Diet or SAD.
They received all their vaccinations. They were free after all since I gave them and they were supposed to keep them healthy. That was over 20 years ago before so many were recommended. When I was a child I was vaccinated by my older brother going to kindergarten. He brought home the mumps, measles, and chicken pox, so we all had those diseases and thus have a life long immunity to them.
I was the typical "Momma bear" as far as my kids were concerned. If there was a problem there had to be a solution. So I went looking for help for my boys.
I tried everything I could think of.
It was a long journey with no internet to research.
My youngest son finally had a major "shift" in his focusing ability when he was in high school.
There were many reasons for that. He was my "experimental model" for many of the "new" things I learned, since he was still young enough to pay attention to Mom.
Now my children, husband, and much of my extended family has been amazed at what can be accomplished in the way of healing with using natural healing techniques.
I am a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Michigan. I graduated magna cum laude, (with high honors)so I am reasonably intelligent.
My husband Mike, and I are also Clinical Nutritionists. I also gradiated from Westover University as a Homeopath, and I am currently a student of Bowen Therapy.. I also studied Reiki, Biovalent Therapy and took and introductory course to Cranio-Sacral Therapy. In essence I have "Healing Hands"
I started my company, Health Leaders, LLC in 1998 when I started doing nutrition counseling in our pharmacy.
Even with all I learned, I still developed a severe back problem. The official diagnosis was a herniated disc.
Soon after that diagnosis I read a research paper stating that 70% of all back problems were caused by bacteria. Hmmm.......That made me wonder how many were caused by viruses?
I did not want to have back surgery because of all the possible complications, and once you do something like that you cannot undo it.
My back eventually became so bad that I was housebound.
I could not sit so I could not drive. If I walked too far my legs would go into spasms. I consulted a Naturopathic Medical Doctor who recommended several homeopathic and nutritional supplements. Though I had some benefit nothing worked to completely heal the situation.
The answer came in the form of learning a healing method called Electromagnetic Conduction that is a part of BANT Therapy.
Within three weeks of consulting a BANT practitioner I was out of pain and back driving my car. After 1 ½ years of struggling I was driving my car! What a sense of freedom.
I incorporated the BANT techniques into my natural medicine practice. What a change for people. My client's outcome has improved greatly and at a much faster pace.
The techniques I teach here on this website will include these BANT techniques, as well as better known information on natural healing.
Healing the body includes bringing balance to the mind and nurturing your soul.
Now with grandchildren and in my 50's, I'm healthier, enjoy life more and feel more at peace with my life.
I know God was, and still is, in control of my journey and that it was His Will that I learned the things I did.
The Bible verse I always returned to as we went through these and other "trials and tribulations" helped to keep me strong. That verse is:
Romans 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I pray He will stay in control of my life as I share what I have learned with you so you may also experience true health and gain a sense of peace in your life.
