Glad to meet you.

Thank you for looking around my site. I started this project so I could share the tools that brought an amazing transformation to me and others. I hope you can experience wonderful changes, too.

I’m motivated by an ambition to help people avoid the avoidable. I want to share and guide folks to prevent the problems and pains that come along when health goes off the rails. 

Avoiding is a good tactic, but it is human nature to not really worry about our health until something flairs up. That’s when we get interested and motivated. So, when health problems have already developed, I aim to correct those with teaching and coaching (and when applicable, acupuncture).  My 40+ years in health care have been valuable but working with diets has been the magic key to my understanding. The truth is most of what drives of our illnesses is poor knowledge of the foundation of vitality – food!

Even when we feel we are eating well, we are making mistakes because we may be following conventions and advice that does not really work well in the real world.  As they say, everybody has an opinion. Some opinions are faddish, some are even politically driven (go figure), and some are just bad advice.

Now I realize that even though we all have our varying geographic, social, and ethnic identities, we are very much alike in so many ways. Most of us are seeking reassurance that we are not broken, but we need guidance to find the best repair tools so we can continue to develop and grow with wisdom. My path and experiences are shared by many.

When I was in my early 20’s, I had severe intestinal pain and thought I had parasites because I had been living in the tropics of South America for a while. Testing my stool, I was told firmly and with complete confidence by the MD that there was nothing wrong with me.

So, I took the phrase “nothing wrong” to mean “nothing to complain about” and spent the next many years thinking my experience was just part of normal life. I was also plagued by migraines, which increased in frequency until menopause when they became weekly.

I found relief for the first time in my life when I experimented with a gluten-free diet to try to help my husband’s hypertension.

The diet we had always eaten was creating an inflammatory condition in my husband’s vessels leading to high blood pressure. But, as I was to discover, it was also causing of my intestinal problems and my migraines…

I would have never known relief was possible until we made that diet change!

Drawing upon research and my experiences and studies as a nurse in special units, acupuncturist, homeopath, and health coach, I teach the “essential” steps to restore natural good health. 

I will sometimes mention experiences from my own journey. And since I live on the beautiful coast of Maine in the U.S. Northeast, I will throw in occasional photos and bits about that. I hope you don’t mind. (Did you know that the first place the sun rises each day in the United States is the coast of Maine?)

Thank you for joining me on this journey to take back our health. I will try to share what I have learned, and I would appreciate your feedback, your questions, and your expertise. 

Be Courageous, Stay Strong
