Growing up in a holistically-minded family was a unique childhood experience. I ate foods that were different from what other kids ate. When I ate the foods they did at their houses, I usually got sick!
In our house, antibiotics and prescriptions were not the first line of defense, which was quite different from most other families that I knew. Now looking back, as different as the beginning of my life was compared to my friends, I am very grateful for the direction that my family’s natural approach gave me.
When I was in college, I thought managing a hospital would be a great thing to do, so I majored in Health Information Management Systems at The Ohio State University. Working in the hospital during college was an eye-opener and conflicted with my understanding of health. Although there is always a time and a place for modern medicine, I saw pharmaceuticals being used as the first choice for every patient. I remember the head nurse at the time holding a Diet Coke in one hand and a Snickers bar in the other, asking me why Type 2 Diabetes was indicated in every other patient’s chart. That was the sign that I needed to make a change! Working in this environment didn't align with who I was, so after I graduated from OSU, I moved to Atlanta to attend Chiropractic school, where I earned my doctorate from Life University.
I started practicing in Cleveland, Ohio, and quickly found my niche in digestive and female health. I knew from my background that nutrients derived from food were best utilized by the body. Therefore, I began to educate myself on whole-food nutrition and supplements. I discovered the positive effects that a better diet and whole-food supplements gave my patients.
People would come into my office with bottles of vitamins and supplements they had purchased, but they were not seeing a change in their health. When I started using Standard Process & MediHerb supplements, my patients quickly saw significant improvement. I love to see my patients have the incredible experience of natural healing using protocols that include, dietary changes, whole-food supplements, and professional quality herbal formulations.
