My interest in health, nutrition and wellness grew out of my personal desire to experience optimal health.
I was sick a lot as a kid, almost always tired. The doctor told my mother every test showed I was fine--- it was all in my head— I believed him. But years later, after becoming so fatigued that I could not get out of bed, a friend convinced me to see a nutrition doctor. After one test, he explained that my problem was easy to fix and sent me home, not with any meds, but with a holistic diet. He told me if I did not make lifestyle changes, I would be diabetic by the time I was 30 or 40. Diabetes runs in my family and so does heart disease. I thank God for what I learned because now that I’m in my 60s, I have neither diabetes or heart disease. In fact, after making the recommended dietary adjustments, I felt better in two weeks. And after 5 months, I felt better than I had my entire life. Thus, began my journey to discover nature’s design for wellness.
