Healing is the process of the restoration of health from an unbalanced, diseased, damaged or unvitalized organism.
When my husband Frederick began to suffer the failing of his first transplanted kidney at the beginning of our marriage (and then continued to suffer over the course of 8 years on and off due to rejection ) I felt lost , afraid and helpless. I didn’t understand how the body worked and I couldn’t bear to see him in pain.
No one should ever have to see their loved ones in pain. Ever. I decided to embark on the path that called out to me which was widely labelled Holistic Health. After Graduating IIN (Institute Of Integrative Nutrition) and while Interning as a Clinical Medical Researcher, I started working with clients helping them identify and correct nutritional imbalances and deficiencies. I realized through applying the knowledge I was quickly acquiring, it was making a direct positive impact on my Husband and his health.
I was eager to learn more and did some research on more of an in-depth schooling and joined NTA training which would lead me to becoming an FNTP – a Functional Nutrition Therapy Practitioner. I further learned how the power of real food and the body’s innate intelligence and its incredible capacity to restore, regenerate, and correct itself — and furthermore when given the proper tools and nutrients to do so can heal itself.
My journey has continued on to the path of becoming Board Certified in the category of Holistic Health /Nutrition. What I Originally started for my husband , I now do for myself, and for others in need. One of the insights that was revealed to me on this journey is that we need to truly believe in ourselves and always trust our gut. Our bodies have innate wisdom and are much smarter and more in tune than we realize, especially in regards to healing ourselves.
The body’s healing allows us to reclaim our power. It gives us the opportunity to fit the pieces back together in such a way so that we are stronger than ever before.
