By day, I write songs and hunt for butterflies. By night, I read books and consult and train with forward-thinking experts around the world on health and advances in alternative medicine. And in my free time, I look for the best place outside the city to camp under the stars. The Wildery is the collision of these interests, because I believe true health is a body, mind and spirit thing, it’s about exploring Wellbeing for Your Whole Being™.
Our stories are powerful, yours and mine. Whether raw or refined, broken or mended, or somewhere in between, our winding stories carry weight and value. We are more than our vocations, more than our locations, more than our dreams and more than our genes. So, for The Wildery (a wellness blog) to only place emphasis on flesh and bones, without honoring stories and souls, would mean we’d miss out on exploring what true, vibrant health means: Wellbeing for Your Whole Being™. You’ll see stories dotting the pages here frequently.
Integrative Oncology, OTC Community Coaching Graduate
After years of informal study in health and wellness, I began a unique form of training in Integrative Oncology in 2015 through a one year Community Coaching program with Dr. Nasha Winters, ND, FABNO, L.Ac, Dipl.OM. and Optimal Terrain Consulting, which I completed in October 2016.
This program included weekly virtual and interactive Terrain Talks, dialogues and Q&A sessions, hosted by Dr. Winters, and often featured special guests with expertise in cancer and other diverse, but complementary, fields from around the world. In addition to weekly Terrain Talks, I participated in monthly classes where Dr. Winters outlined and expanded upon her unique Terrain Ten model of approaching wellness from a whole body perspective―including epigenetics, the microbiome, the immune system, toxin exposures, and blood sugar balance as they relate to the cancer process. Her insights, as both a 20+ year cancer survivor and medical practitioner, were the focal point of these private classes and are detailed in her bestselling book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer: Integrating Deep Nutrition, the Ketogenic Diet and Non-Toxic Bio-Individualized Therapies.
Gut & Nutrigenomics, The Gut Institute Program
To further complement my experience in Integrative Oncology, I am currently enrolled in an eight month educational program focused on microbiome health and nutrigenomics (the study of the interplay between nutrition and our genes) through The Gut Institute, which I will complete in 2018.
