~ A natural approach to functioning optimally
Holistic and Individual Approach 
My approach is based on a holistic viewpoint and focuses on tailoring a wellness program that targets your specific needs and balances your entire being.

 I believe that, for the most part, symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, anxiety, bloating, and depression are the result of one or several imbalances that can differ from one person to the next.

Two individuals with the same symptom may have completely different underlying causes. As an example, anxiety could be caused by an overload of environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies due to a poor diet and/or digestive problems, emotional stress, or sleep problems just to name a few.

On the other hand, two individuals exposed to the same thing whether its diet, amount of sleep, or toxins could end up with completely different symptoms. 
A certain food, for example, may cause one person to feel calm and satisfied while the other feels bloated, shaky, and tired. This explains the mixed reviews on popular diets. Some people may thrive on carbohydrates and others need more protein.

We are all so different and complex. That's why it is important to look at your individual background, diet, lifestyle, and stressors so that we can get to the root of your complaints, reset your health and balance your body, mind, and spirit.

 My R.E.S.E.T. your Health™ guide is a tool you can use to guide you in the right direction.







It is more important to know what sort
of person has a disease than to know what
 sort of disease a person has.

Holistic Health

Holistic health is a healing practice that addresses the well-being of the whole person.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term holistic is "relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts." Nothing is treated in isolation because your body, mind, and spirit are interconnected.

When one is off balance, it affects your entire being. When one of your body's main systems is not functioning as it should, whether it is your detoxification, digestion, hormonal, or immune system, or if you feel mentally imbalanced, your whole self is in a state of disharmony. Your hormones are a perfect example of this. An imbalance in your steroid hormones could affect musculoskeletal health, fat and protein metabolism, glucose balance, detox capability, quality of sleep, personal relationships, and many other issues. And vice versa.

Treating symptoms may be a temporary solution, however it usually does not resolve the problem. It is only when all areas of a person's well-being are addressed and balanced that total health can be achieved.

Holistic health encourages you to actively participate in the process of regaining your health by practicing self care,  becoming aware of both positive and negative changes in your body, and by recognizing stressors that affect your health. Your belief, attitude, and desire all play a role in reaching harmony and balance.

It is also important to note that holistic health for the most part emphasizes wholesome foods and all-natural drug-free products that are not toxic to the body or the environment.


  Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free
 from physical disabilities and mental distractions,
the gates of the soul open.
                                                                                                              ~B.K.S. Iyengar

Biochemical Individuality

Biochemical individuality is the difference in metabolism and anatomy from person to person.

Dr. Roger Williams pioneered this thought over forty years ago when he stated that there is no such thing as an average person because we all have different genes and come from different environments. This affects everything including our chemical composition, hormone activities, growth patterns, alcohol tolerance, taste and smell sensitivity, and pain threshold.

 Williams also pointed out that each organism has distinctive nutritional needs which must be met to reach optimal health. If these needs are not met, then individuals will be deficient in these nutrients, and will ultimately become susceptible to a variety of diseases.

An understanding of the fact that we are so different explains why  people react differently to diets, medications, or other treatments. One size does not fit all.


Williams emphasized the "truly phenomenal" opportunities that open when we concentrate on  "real" individuals with highly distinctive patterns of biochemical abilities and needs instead of hypothetical non-existent "average" people.
