Reclaiming Your Life

Reclaim Your Life Having been challenged by a life threatening illness at 35, I quickly realized I wanted to not only heal my physical being, but also to discover how my body arrived at this place of dis-ease. I was lead on a healing journey of the mind, body and spirit. Over the course of three years I discovered how my dis-ease was the end result of traumatic life experiences, as well as extreme ecological and socio-economic changes. Understanding how my body manifested dis-ease was the key to determining the best approaches to support my healing and reclaim my life.

What follows are the concepts that I found most helpful on my healing journey. I hope you find this information empowers, inspires and supports you on your own healing journey.
