Body In Balance Wellness Center


At first, I followed the path of traditional medicine because that is where I believed the solutions to my illness and injuries would be found, but was I wrong!!! I discovered that even though my doctors had the best of intentions, their solutions were limited to writing me more and more prescriptions in an effort to minimize my symptoms, rather than uncover and address the problems. It took me more than 10 years to find the answers to my health problems, and what I found surprised me!


I discovered that the best solutions for healing my chronic conditions were not to be found with traditional drugs or therapies. In my case, traditional western medicine did not care about real answers; it cared mostly about giving my symptoms a name and then prescribing pharmaceutical drugs to treat the symptoms. I was told again and again by 'medical experts' that there was no cure for my conditions and that I would have to take a list of medications for the rest of my life. It became clear that there were benefits of this sickness care model for the drug companies and insurance companies, but it did not cure my medical problems. In fact, over time I realized that the drugs my doctors had prescribed also had harmful side effects, and I was beginning to experience these negative side effects.


One critical day in my doctor's office I took a stand and said "No" to this endless and counter-productive prescription drug therapy, and I decided to take charge of my own life. I was determined to find answers that would help get me on the path to real health, not the drugged-up compliance with the status quo path I was on. I went home, purchased a microscope and began to study blood and how nutrition made changes to the blood. This training proved invaluable as it allowed me to see what really works with regards to nutrition. I used what I learned to heal myself, and I am now proud to say that I have effectively CURED all of my above listed conditions with the exception of my eyesight. For that I still need to wear glasses.


At age 56, I am much fitter than I was 10 years ago, and I recover faster from my workouts. The above mentioned conditions are 95% gone, and the eight medications that my doctors had me on are down to only one! My blood pressure and cholesterol are not just normal but optimal, and with no medications! I did it by changing what I put in my mouth and in my mind. My sinus troubles are now under control without the need for steroid nasal sprays to help me breathe. I no longer have sleep apnea, therefore I do not sleep with a CPAP/BIPAP machine to help me breathe at night.


After being on anti-depression medications for over 10 years, I am proud to say that I have not take them for over four years and I now feel so much better! I can now think again with clarity, ie. no more brain fog! My memory has also significantly improved.


I opened Body in Balance Wellness Center in West Palm Beach, Florida as a place where clients are empowered to take back control of their health and their lives. ​If you are ready to have less pain, more energy and better mental clarity, give me a call. I can help you learn how to heal your body naturally, using exercise, natural foods and positive lifestyle changes.

My Personal History


I am very passionate about health and alternative healing methods. I was working as a Capital Projects Director at a growing medical center campus in Anchorage, Alaska. Over time, I developed a multitude of medical conditions that were leaving me exhausted. 

My list of health problems included a herniated disk L4-L5, chronic sciatica; blunt trauma to the back of my head and neck that fractured three cervical vertebra and created limited head range of motion resulting in chronic neck pain; gastric esophageal reflux disease (GERD); sleep apnea; irritable bowl syndrome (IBS); chronic fatigue; clinical depression; chronic sinusitis; 2 hammer toes; hormonal imbalances; mercury toxicity; high blood pressure; high cholesterol; poor eyesight and I was 40 lbs overweight.


I had chronic sharp pain in my lower back that radiated down the back of my leg. It was so bad that I could barely sit or ride in a car for more than 30 minutes. I slept in a chair for almost a year because it was too painful to sleep in a bed. At one time I was in so much pain that I needed to use a wheelchair service to help me get though an airport.
