My childhood was surrounded by a nurturing and supportive family, eating what I believed was a healthy diet: whole wheat bread, cold cut meat sandwiches, hot dogs, and pizza ”but no pop” with an occasional few mouthfuls of salad. However, everything changed when I left home for the first time to attend college in 1998. My diet and lifestyle became that of a rock star, without the rock and roll. I knew in my heart that my choices were not making me happy and ultimately destroying my health. Strictly for ethical reasons, one day I stopped eating animal products. However, choosing to avoid eating flesh created a major dilemma about what I was going to eat. I dabbled in macrobiotics and a cooked grain and legume-based diet mainly focused on soy, thinking it was a safe and effective alternate source of protein. My health began to deteriorate right before my eyes. Thus began my journey into the abundance of information and misinformation in natural health, longevity and spiritual wholeness. At 25 years old, I decided to study at Hippocrates. It was indeed a blessing. My level of health increased dramatically to the point where I was able to accomplish anything I set out to. Due to the knowledge and expertise I gained at Hippocrates, I was able to look within myself and find happiness.
