On October 30, 2003, I was diagnosed with stage 2 invasive ductal carcinoma – a fancy way of saying “breast cancer”. This devastating moment sparked a desire in me to start participating in my well-being and not sit idly by while my health deteriorated from a mainline of sugar and a lifestyle not at all in balance with my desires.
I met author and consultant Verne Varona through an online newsletter during one of my late-night, caffeine-fueled computer jam sessions. He said he could teach me some macrobiotic strategies to assist in my healing after 4 months of vicious chemotherapy and a surgery that left my body weak. More than a decade later, my life is more connected, more spiritual and infused with a grace I never thought possible.
It has been my desire and incentive to share my knowledge with the world — specifically with respect my healing journey. From selecting organically-sourced produce, to reducing stress and finding ways to stop emotional eating, Varona has been my kick-ass, pull-no-punches mentor for all these years. I hope to share what he already knows, which is that eating the right foods is not the whole picture, and that embracing self-healing strategies such as healthy emotional expression, managing stress, enjoying love and social support systems, serves to enhance longevity and has a positive impact on physical and psychological well-being.
I look forward to sharing these, and many other brilliant bombshells with you! Oh, I live on Long Island as a single parent, where I work 2 jobs, spend time enjoying the company of good friends, painting rocks found on the beach, and hoping that my son, currently a college grad, returns my text messages.
So thanks for stopping by! I look forward to sharing some really great information, and hope it inspires you to start your own wellness revolution, just as it did for me! Leave me a comment below, or find out more by clicking here!
