Want to Know a Bit More?
I have met all professional and educational requirements of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and possess all the qualifications necessary to be recognized as an expert in the health field as a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner. I also maintain certifications in Holistic Nutrition, Health & Wellness Coaching and Nutrigenomics.
Now that the credentials are out of the way, here’s the interesting stuff:
A holistic mindset has been part of my life as far back as I can remember. When I was a kid my mom made sure we ate well, regularly taking us to co-ops, the health food store, and she’d get raw milk from a farm every Thursday. When I had kids of my own, I wanted to follow in her footsteps.
During my early thirties, I experienced the kind of challenges in life that depleted my body on all levels, affecting my emotional, mental, then physical health. Finally, my faith experienced its unrecoverable demise. It was then, looking back, that I learned the true meaning of “holistic”, not because I was living a holistic lifestyle, but rather because my whole life was in need of attention. Health and well-being are not just about what’s going on physically, they’re truly intertwined with all aspects of life involving emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being and whether or not they remain nourished and balanced. It became clear that I needed to make some serious and aggressive changes in my life as a whole.
When a crisis arises, time needs to become your best friend; you need to trust it and let it complete its work. So as time worked its magic, I then began focusing my energy on ways to effectively use my life experiences and passion for nutrition to help others become more “holistic in health” by turning it into a formal education.
Together with Dr. Lawrence Bagnell, we now co-operate a thriving nutrition and chiropractic practice in Langhorne/Newtown, Pennsylvania. We work diligently to guide and assist as many individuals and families as we can through holistic living.
