In April 2010 I put the soda down and picked up water. It was the first step toward transforming my health. Little by little I started to make changes to my diet. I switched out conventional foods for organic foods, I started cooking for myself instead of eating packaged convenience foods. As the weight came off, I started to detox, physically and emotionally. After every emotional detox, another 4-5 pounds would drop, so I continued on my inward exploration while doing the best I could with my diet. In May 2011, I started eating a mostly raw food plant based diet and that is how I eat today. Over the course of 14 months, I dropped 120 pounds of weight and 43 years of emotional trauma. I'm now inspired to help people who are looking to get healthier but don't know where to start. My motto is "Meet people where they are. Its not about being perfect, its just about doing a little better every day."
