I am a healthcare strategist responsible for interpreting conditions of participation and regulatory issues for healthcare facilities. My experience includes various areas of nursing, that include but not limited to critical care, quality, case management, program management, research and nursing leadership.
I have a strong interest in wellness and complementary modalities. I will be sharing my insight on various topics related to health and wellness from a nursing viewpoint. I want each of you to be healthy and well so you can live your best life.
I got interested in complementary medicine after being diagnosed with cysts on my liver and spleen. I had been in pain for months and sought out the medical community for help. After every imaginable test was completed, they could not offer any plan to address my pain but to continue to take Tylenol. A friend recommended that I reached out to an iradologist. Iridology is the practice of examining the iris of the eye for markings and discolorations in order to determine possible health problems they might indicate. As a nurse I had never heard of this practice but was willing to try something different, because I did not want to take pain medication for the rest of my life. We talked over the phone and came up with a plan.
He suggested I change my diet, and eat raw food for 30 days. It was challenging, but with his constant reassurance and assistance and my diligence I was able to complete the diet. As a result I lost 30 lbs, corrected my blood pressure and cholesterol. The pain in my abdomen was corrected and I had no other issues. Currently, I do not always eat raw and with this pandemic my eating habits have been altered quite a bit. Do keep in mind food is medicine, and your health can be dramatically changed by what you consume.
