How did you get involved in this business?
Inspired by my mom and her suffering with colon cancer, I left my real estate career to pursue my lifelong passion in natural health. Digestive health is where we can make a positive change in everyone’s overall health because a healthy digestive system affects the entire body. We support your body’s natural ability to heal through nutrition, detoxification, colon hydrotherapy and herbs.
What distinguishes you from other businesses in your category?
We encourage clients to take their health into their own hands by becoming educated and empowered to make the best choices for their health care needs. We want to be an integral player in a client’s health care team and not replace current health care providers.
What do you like best about your line of work?
Helping clients feel better. When clients feel better they treat themselves and others better, making this a better world to live in for everyone. I feel blessed every day that I get to serve people wanting to work on the foundational level of their health.
What is your business’ biggest challenge?
Educating people on the benefits of using a natural approach to health care. There is not a magic pill; optimal health requires making healthy choices, time and persistence. There is certainly a need for conventional medicine. However, we often respond well to a gentle and natural approach.
Something people might be surprised to learn about you or your business:
I have had my own journey with digestive discomfort and disease and have experienced firsthand the benefits of dietary and lifestyle changes. We sometimes become so used to the way we feel that it doesn’t occur to us that we can feel better.
