This is not your parent’s health-care.
My work isn’t just a business; it’s part of a movement to redefine health-care and experience the joy of well-being one can expect from this one precious life each of us has been given.
Are you in?
If so, here’s the deal: it isn’t Dr. Andrew Weil or the Medical Medium responsible for this impending revolution. It’s you—being curious to learn more in order to have agency for your body.

As the video states, “It’s those who are willing to stand out…and be ridiculed”. In our society, this means opting out of the faster, quick-fix weight-loss model or drinking a green smoothie despite curious co-workers smiling slyly at your “hippie” food.
This past week, I ran into some of my first clients, three in particular, who’s combined weight-loss is 200 plus pounds. They’ve maintained it because their lives are flourishing. One has moved into a stylish city loft. Another has started his own business, which is already thriving. Another has found herself through a divorce and a huge job promotion.
When you stop eating pre-packaged food, you stop wanting a pre-packaged life.
Taking ownership of their health and accompanying results have helped and inspired so many in their lives; the movement continues to grow. Even though companies are spending millions fighting GMO labeling and it’s projected that by 2030 all states will have obesity rates above 44%, check out the bustle at your local farmers market. Look up Whole Foods stock. One of America’s wealthiest billionaire’s is donating a large fortune to fund independent nutrition research. An equal and opposite movement is making strides.
Five years ago, my talks centered on making a case for nutrition. The country, most doctors, news media and other authorities hadn’t yet embraced the power of food. Now health is a major section in the news. Many doctors are going back to school to learn not how to treat disease but how to get people well. And major corporations are hiring me to speak on food and it’s relationship to the mind and spirit. I grin widely thinking of where we will be in 10, 15 and 20 years!
A paradigm shift is happening. Not because of Dr. Oz. It’s because of people like those in the leadership video, people like you, with the welfare of themselves, their families and communities in mind, who are willing to stand up and dance – and eat kale! Thank you for being you: curious and hungry for change. It allows my optimism to thrive.
