Personal Health Journey

The biggest challenge and growth factor in my life was/is my personal health journey fighting an autoimmune condition and fertility issues.

After traditional medicine had no answers for me, I tried literally everything else.

Therefore I gained experience with treatments in…

  • Functional Medicine
  • Applied Kinesiology
  • Chinese Medicine
  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Massage Therapy
  • Osteopathy
  • Naturopathy
  • Biofeedback / Bioresonance Diagnostics
  • Mind Body Spirit Release
  • Biomagnetic Therapy
  • Iridology
  • Reiki

All these experiences help me to be a better guide for my clients.
