Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have?


episode 24: E024: Using Food + Supplements instead of medicine to heal

In this episode, Kathy Ashton shares her story about discovering how the food she was eating was exacerbating her fibromyalgia. Then her husband was diagnosed with MS, and the drugs caused depression and made him feel like crap so he stopped taking them. He’d remembered Kathy’s success in healing herself by changing her diet, and he asked her to go back to school to learn about this, to help him heal! And she did, and now they have a family business creating supplements from whole foods at therapeutic doses to help the body heal. Her husband has since gone and done the same degree, and their son works the business with them, as it was his idea as a child to stop using supplements full of fillers, but make their own from food to help his Dad heal! So they did and now they sell these supplements to help others. 

Kathy has very generously offered a discount code to my listeners of MDPODCAST10 if you’d like to buy her products.
