Do not worry this will not take long. I am not the most interesting person. Born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised in rual community of Haldimand/ Norfolk county with my parents and two younger siblings and lots of pets over the years, even a rooster.
Simple kid being raised in the country with ample yard, camping, boating, sports and MSN was my life with dial up so after 830 pm of course.
I always wanted to be a paramedic since highschool. I mean when I was 10 I envisioned being a run way fashion designer then quickly realized that was too hard and competitive so you know I choose a career that was hard, competitive, shift work and messy and chaotic instead.
I graduated from the Primary Care Paramedic program at Fanshawe college in 2012 and I've since continued working as a Paramedic with my local community since 2013 and do not intend to leave that job any time soon...
So why this? Why my holistic business? well....
I've always been passionate about fitness, health and more natural living since I was a young kid ( see blog post below). "Natural" remedies have always interested me on a personal leve but I just didn't know how to approach it. I've experienced health concerns over the years that were somewhat manageable by allopathic medicine ( or so I thought till I had my awakening). Then 6 months went by in 2018 where I had every test the doctor knew to give me yet I was living in pain, discomfort and fear and they had no answers for me except for prescriptions that didn't even touch my symptoms. Working in medical field for many years now it's no opinion but an observation that we have a growing sick and unhealthy population that has minimal education on their OWN HEALTH and body and lack of responsibility to take care of themselves with faith in a system that is missing the big picture. So, I educated myself and well I fell down a rabbit hole. Read below the story how I fell and where I landed below!

How I Fell Down the Rabbit Hole.
and landed into a deranged concept that the mind, body and soul are connected leading to either dis-ease or health and your healing, hormones affect everything, inflammation is the cause and affect of all-cause illnesses and if your gut is unhealthy your mind will be to!
