EMPOWERING YOU TO BE YOUR BEST SELF
moose swimming through ocean currents...doesn't seem wholly natural, does it? however, these moose didn't let a lack of webbed feet or flippers stop them from plunging forward to whatever destiny was driving their moose intention.
perhaps you feel confused how to get from point A to point B...

I grew up in Pittsburgh, in a family where most everyone worked in the steel mills. I was raised on packaged and processed food, though we often had a garden. At the age of 13, I decided to be a vegetarian in an attempt to feel more connected to my food. Sadly, I was woefully uneducated in how to eat well so I became a junk food vegetarian. As a youth I was told that fast food, painful menstrual cycles, acne, PMS, allergies, and feeling sick to my stomach were all just "normal". Doctors looked me over, even put me in an MRI machine; and because everything appeared fine and I seemed healthy...there was nothing to be done
How wrong these messages were! Common symptoms, yes, however they should not be considered normal or healthy!
As a young adult I knew the city was not for me. I found myself- physically and spiritually- once my hands were in the dirt growing vegetables, raising animals, processing animals with respect, and during an intense few years learning to live off the land from a Cree Indian family, Freddie and Annie Jolly and while apprenticing with Ray and Nancy Reitze at Earthways. These teachers knew and exemplified what it has taken a couple of decades to integrate into my own life-- that real health and well being is about knowing one's self and having the courage to fully be own's own true self. Later in life when I spent a few winters in the remote bush of Alaska I had unlimited time to confront my emotional baggage. Years of working on my own health taught me that nutrition is more than just the food on my plate, though that is certainly important. True nutrition is about aligning one's physical, AND spiritual and emotional purpose. It is a journey of many steps.
