    Did you Know?

    Quark is an essential part of the Budwig protocol. Dr. Johanna Budwig (1908–2003) was a biochemist who developed a natural cure for cancer by combining the sulfur rich amino acids found in quark cheese with the omega-3 acids in flaxseed oil in a 2:1 ratio. This Budwig mixture is garnished with ground flax seeds, fresh fruit and nuts. The Budwig protocol is a natural whole food diet and holistic lifestyle approach to improve cancer, heart disease and arthritis. Dr. Budwig was nominated six times for the Nobel Prize in medicine and has written 12 books.

    From the beginning of time, sound has been one of the most powerful healers. When sound waves enter and pass through our body, it results in vibrational changes. Tuning Fork Therapy uses sound and vibration to assist your physical body's organs, tissues, glands, cells, etc to reach their optimal vibrational frequency (OVF) thus allowing them to self heal. It is also helpful for reducing stress, tension, and pain management. Tuning fork therapy can also be used for deepening a spiritual connection, increasing mental clarity/focus and balancing the mind, body, and spirit. 

    Edgar Casey stated that sound (vibration) would be the medicine of the future. Tuning fork therapy draws upon the science of sound and ancient practices to create a harmonic holistic approach to health and well being. "There are places in the heart and soul only sound can touch."

    You are welcome to bring your lunch. Advanced registration is preferred. Walk-ins are welcome.

    My story of "why" is a result of a long journey of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, occupational, social, and relational knock-outs. If you have ever watched a MMA fight, you see the fighter's simultaneous desperation and determination to win the fight. Similarly, I have felt the pain, frustration, confusion, despair, and the feeling of drowning in stagnant water as a result of life's rapid fire assaults. From being an abused child, a teen mother, homeless at 18, diagnosed with an autoimmune illness at 19, and experiences beyond what seems "normal" in life, I finally decided that just barely keeping my head at surface level was not the life I was destined to live.

    Identifying my life’s calling and distinct mission propelled me to a place where I can use my pain to help others achieve their best. I have not “arrived” but instead, focus on the journey of exploration and growth. My story shares what it is to be human, and how to move from a place of surviving to thriving!!
