I’m on a mission to bring good health to as many people as possible.

My discovery of the power of natural healing was by accident; I wasn’t looking for it, it found me. I was living in a spiritual community in NYC and my roommate had been treated for cancer. I was with her when her oncologist told her “We’ve done all we can for you, there’s nothing more to do.” She didn’t want to accept that and found a chiropractor who did detoxifying diets using iridology. This was in 1976, way before anyone had ever heard the phrase “detoxify”. As is so often the case when things like this happen, I didn’t realize at the time, but this was the beginning of my spiritual path for my healing work; I ended up working in his office as his assistant.

This was a life altering experience. I was very naïve; a young girl came to see Dr. Cursio with severe acne. I remember thinking “If you have acne – take antibiotics; what is the big deal?”. However, my understanding of what “to heal” really means, came to be dramatically altered as I witnessed the multitude of people who followed Dr. Cursio’s protocols reclaim their health, physically and emotionally. I came to understand, given the right nutrition and support, that the body has the ability to heal itself. And I still remember the moment I discovered a catalogue to the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Dr. Cursio’s office and realized this was my next step on my path, to obtain the education I needed.

Dr. Cursio had a unique approach to health; he believed creating an inner environment that enabled the body and mind to return to the time when the illness developed, was necessary for healing to occur.  This perspective forms the foundation of my work, and is now known as a root-cause approach to healing.  Your body puts out many “clues” that it’s not doing well, prior to the actual disease appearing. When did these symptoms first start? What was going on in your life prior to symptoms appearing? What are the current stressors you have in your life now? These are some of the questions we discuss, for these answers provide a time line for the development of disease and are the beginning of unraveling the “why” and the “how” of your illness.
