In my own life, I suffered for years, not only as a result of my illnesses but also from the side effects of the multiple prescription medications that were recommended that truly did more harm than good...I was finally diagnosed with PCOS, extreme adrenal fatigue, a benign pituitary tumor and hypothyroidism. Furthermore, as a result of the physical and emotional stress, the medications, and the poor attempt at a healthy diet that I was told to follow, I suffered from intestinal permeability (aka Leaky Gut) that was recking my life! I realized at that point that although most of my "medical" conditions were chronic and Western medical treatment just want cutting it, I needed to take personal charge of my own health... I became a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and then furthered my education by achieving a Certified Nutritional Consultant (CNC) through the accredited AANC. My education also includes an in-depth knowledge of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and enzymes and the necessary role they play in aiding our health. My natural approach to health includes a focus on a whole food diet, customized to your needs. I am experienced in coaching clients through Paleo, Keto, Pescatarian and Vegetarian diets.. I also stress the importance of an attainable exercise plan, not only for the physical body but for mental health and heart health as well.

April Bowen, Homeopath: Homeopathic Practitioner recovered her own son from PANDAS & Brain Injury (from California) “I’ve been a Homeopathic practitioner for 15 years. Trying to find help for my young son, suffering a bizarre set of symptoms for 9 years, (PANS/PANDAS) which nothing or no one seemed able to help, was my main reason for taking up the study of homeopathy. After getting the basics at the Homeopathic Academy Of Southern California (HASC), I pursued an advanced course for the Vital Sensation Method for many years at the California Center for Homeopathic Education (CCHE). By the end of my first year, I had discovered a remedy that cured my son completely, of every symptom (even severe Tourette’s), in only three days! In my second year, my 12-year-old daughter developed a serious autoimmune disease, one which attacks the platelets, called Immune Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). Hers was particularly aggressive and we almost lost her three times-once to a brain bleed and twice to anaphylactic shock reactions to the treatments we were forced to give her. In each emergency, it was homeopathic remedies that saved her (when conventional medicine had nothing that helped her). After the last anaphylaxis episode, we refused further treatment. A constitutional homeopathic remedy put her into remission in less than 4 days. She has remained in remission for the last 15 years. My PANS son had a severe Traumatic Brain Injury at age 17, destroying 75% of his frontal lobe. It was a miracle he even survived. It manifested itself as looking like he had become paranoid schizophrenic overnight, besides all the physical damage. Again, homeopathy was the single most effective treatment for him. It took several years, but he is now fully recovered and leading a completely normal life. Since these three, personal cases of autoimmune disease and brain injury, I’ve treated hundreds of patients with those and other autoimmune issues, and brain injuries. I find that the constitutional approach is still most important, but healing the gut using homeopathic remedies, as well as clearing toxins when indicated and using biochemical tissue salts to help with remineralization, and addressing underlying genetic weaknesses, all play important roles. Homeopathy is a gentle, yet powerful force!”
