she heals holistically
My story started at the age of 11...I migrated to Canada from Guyana with my sister and brothers.
It was definitely a new world. The food was different and available in abundance. I loved everything sugary and was not denied these new luxuries. Coming from a country where processed food were a rarity, you can imagine the over stimulation and before you knew it I had become an over weight teenager. For years I struggled to combat the weight and every diet that I tried would always end with me gaining an additional 10 - 15lbs. I had determined that this was going to be me for the rest of my life.
Fast forward to 2010...
My only sister was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. I became her caregiver and as you can imagine, it was the most painful journey I had to embark on.
I remember at one of my sister's Oncologist's appointment, I asked if changing her diet would impact the growth of the cancer and I was told without any hesitation, "no". It broke my heart, I believed that I needed to save my sister, and here was this doctor telling me that she can not be saved and the only treatment would be chemotherapy, so then began the chemotherapy treatment. I achingly watched my sister suffer through her chemotherapy treatment, I felt powerless and useless.
When the chemotherapy became too much for her, she stopped the treatment. I took it upon myself to put her on a plant based diet and was excited after 2 weeks of a diet change the masses were still shrinking however, the cancer was too aggressive and on March 26th, 2012 my beloved sister lost her battle with cancer.
After this experience, I knew I needed to make some changes in my life. Over the course of 2 years I was able to lose the excess weight that had plagued me for decades and I became mindful of the foods I ate as well as how chemically laden products can effect my overall health.
At that time, I did not know that's where my passion for healing organically in a non-intrusive way would take life. I love that from my pain I am now able to offer women a service that allows them to heal without having to experience pain. Holistic healing should not be a last alternative. It should be our first.
