Are you Ready to Are you Ready to take your LIFE back like I did?


I was sick, I tried to deny it, because the doctors never found anything, I was on 12 medications, those were just the prescription ones, not the over-the-counter ones, and those didn’t even count the tons of others I had tried over the years. The fatigue started shortly after my oldest was born, but I was working fulltime, going to school more than full time (anyone ever had to take paramedic knows exactly what I am talking about) and had a toddler. I blew it off, kept telling myself it was all in my head, I couldn’t lose wieght because it was in my GENES (yeah! I’m sure you’ve heard that one before) Then the jobs I worked brought their own stress (and stress majorly depletes your stores of hormones and minerals) working 24 hours shifts in EMS brought its own set of stressors, then moving on to retail management, a whole nother world of stress, and back to EMS (I was going to go back to school only to find out 2 weeks after the change I was pregnant with number 3…..I WAS STILL BREASTFEEDING AROUND THE CLOCK)….so you can only imagine. My marriage was not good to say the least, and this certainly was not going to be helpful.

This is the water Hyacinth, andeicr_010_pvp it symbolizes the difference small changes over time can make in a persons life.


Today that life seems so distant, (please do not misunderstand, my life is far from perfect, but I now have an arsenal of information that can help me to address, cope and overcome ANY obstacle that comes my way)

I feel better and am more hopeful about my future than ever before and my dream is to help empower others with the information they need to make changes in what ever area of life that they want, to achieve whatever DREAM is theirs. I cannot wait to help you as well!


Please read the open letter below and contact me if you too would like to improve your finances, relationships, marriage, business, leadership, and most dear to my heart……your health, because without that, nothing else is nearly as enjoyable.



Dear Reader,

I try to make it look easy, but it has certainly been a long hard road. I have been to so many doctors over the years and the only thing that ever showed up in their tests was that I had tumors in my thyroid, cysts in my ovaries, endometriosis, multiple blood clots, bleeding ulcers and sever chronic pain along with horrible muscle spasms and debilitating fatigue, positive thyroid antibodies and then I started finding growths under my arm and in my breast. after the last doctor tried to tell me that my swollen lymph nodes were random fatty deposits it was the final straw, that and the fact that I could no longer deny that I was sick since I couldn’t lift my head off the pillow, my legs were too weak to walk up and down the stairs and I couldn’t even lift a gallon of milk without great difficulty. quite a few years ago I read a book called the china study and saw a movie called fat, sick and nearly dead. Unfortunately I didn’t trust myself because I had been sold out to the medical system, I was part of it for crying out loud, I picked people up in the worst time of their lives and they trusted me to help them, never knowing that I would be putting their lives in the hands of someone (by no fault of their own) had no idea how to help them outside of emergency management. Doctors simply are not taught health, and what they are taught comes directly from the people who stand to profit from pushing over priced dangerous chemicals down peoples throats….a pill for every ill they say…..I finally had to learn to trust all of the research I had done, then I went cold turkey on all medications, first adding iodine into my diet (to now which I have a ton of food based supplements). I still have a ways to go, as finances dictate what I have money to put into my body, but finally I started getting results. I’m sure, as you are going through this, that you completely understand how ecstatic it can make you when you can just think clearly (this was one of the first effects of the iodine) As I move forward in my program, I still have good and bad days because lets face it, I took a lot of medication for a long time and ate a lot of shit food, along with being exposed to toxic tap and bottled water, chemtrails and the everyday toxins in our environment. Slowly I have detoxified my mind (through use of the LIFE materials) my body and home, (through use of supplements, purified-alkaline water, juicing, smoothies, superfoods, eliminating chemicals in my home and beauty products, eliminated almost everything that comes in a box(aside from healthy pastas and such, and use of the wellness products through nikken).


I got into the health care field to help people heal, which I saw the exact opposite happening, since before I could read or write it’s all I have ever wanted to do, I just can’t stand watching people suffering so needlessly….now I know not everyone is at that point and ready to make such incredible changes, I sure wasn’t. I just tried to change at least one thing a week and it has been totally worth it. I would love to come and sit with you and answer any questions you may have, give you product recommendations and resources to companies that I have looked into to help reach any wellness goals you have. We are the body of Christ and we certainly cannot fight the enemies we are facing today if we are fighting our own bodies.

Much of my information comes from countless books and thousands of articles and scientific studies and many documentaries have confirmed (for my own personal confidence) my research. but through observation of just the few years that I was working the road I could see with my own eyes that people were getting chronically more sick and at younger ages, I couldn’t accept the fact that the massive increase in obese patients was simply that they were fat and lazy, some of these people were marines and the such, I wouldn’t take that as an answer and had to find ansewrs, now I know that most people that are overweight are literally starving, their bodies are doing the best they can to keep them from dying of toxic overload thereby storing it as fat, we are chronically deficient in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids our bodies cannot cope with the toxic overload from the environment on it’s own, let alone all of the toxins we ingest.


That is why I am working to develop a program to teach people how to detoxify and nutrify their bodies so that they can finally get their lives back. I’m sure you are very well aware of how consuming feeling sick is, especially when you cannot get any answers and when you look normal on the outside, I personally gave up on the doctors because I simply cannot afford to bounce around until I find one who has done as I did and connected the dots and learned what needed to be done for people to get well. If you suspect an autoimmune thyroid disorder, as I believe I have there is a doctor I will recommend, I have to get the number from my aunt (who is also studying natural ways and has agreed to co-write my first book with me) she has done the research and actually cured her dog of cancer through nutrition. I highly recommend getting the book The Gerson method(or miracle) as well as hopping on netflix and watch these documentaries: Food matters, forks over knives, the Gerson miracle, fat,sick,and nearly dead;



some of these may be available on netflix or youtube free of charge:

Seeds of Death

A river of Waste: The Hazardous Truth


The ones I listed on netflix are really great to start with in terms of getting implementation and getting results to get you on your way to feeling better faster.

When you do start, be aware that you may experience awful symptoms migraines, severe itchiness (if you take coconut oil or another superfood that eliminates parasites, yes you have parasites) muscle cramps, severe bone pain, fatigue, nausea and the list goes on. This is a good sign, just tough it out, it’ll get better and you can assist the process by taking liver support supplements and coffee enemas (not with tap water, get purified from the bulk store or buy a filter through nikken, which is the most economic solution) also there is a store in Richmond, Michigan that I recommend getting alkaline, ozonated water from for 38-65 cents a gallon if you don’t have the initial money for the pi-mag machine. The pi-mag machine brings that down to around 10 cents a gallon plus saves you time and fuel 🙂

To sum it up, disease cannot thrive in an acidic environment, you want to get alkaline as fast as you can, the most important being your water, because lets face it, that’s basically what you are made of. the supplements can be reviewed and added later, you are already doing an awesome job going non-gmo, way to go there! go as raw as possible and slowly cut out animal products if you haven’t already (you can find great substitutes for some of your staples like milk that can be used interchangeably in recipes) .  I purposely lost the first 40 pounds without going on a diet or doing anything different in my daily routines other than walking, smoothies and supplements. I ate the exact same, because I wanted people who are bigger than me or who have more advanced disease to have hope and belief that they could do it too and not ever feel deprived because this is a lifestyle change and not a temporary diet.



There is so much more I have to share, but each persons struggles are unique to them, please feel free to contact me privately so that I can help you address what ones are pressing in your life at this moment.


I really hope this helps you, and I can’t wait to here that you are on your road to feeling better. God bless!


With Love,


Shocking new health statistics for the new normal in American kids – should we be worried?


Shocking new health statistics for the new normal in American kids – should we be worried?


  • Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.1, 2
  • The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2010. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to 18% over the same period.1, 2
  • In 2010, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese.1
  • Overweight is defined as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water, or a combination of these factors.3 Obesity is defined as having excess body fat.4
  • Overweight and obesity are the result of “caloric imbalance”—too few calories expended for the amount of calories consumed—and are affected by various genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors.5,6
The old Autism:

About 1 in 88 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network. 


The new Autism:

Based on parent reports, the prevalence of diagnosed ASD in 2011–2012 was estimated to be 2.00% for children aged 6–17. This prevalence estimate (1 in 50) is significantly higher than the estimate (1.16%, or 1 in 86) for children in that age group in 2007.
Male/Female Autism:

ASDs are almost 5 times more common among boys (1 in 54) than among girls (1 in 252)



About 1 in 12 people (about 25 million) have asthma, and the numbers are increasing every year.

About 1 in 10 children (10%) had asthma and 1 in 12 adults (8%) had asthma in 2009. Women were more likely than men and boys more likely than girls to have asthma.



Rates of parent-reported ADHD diagnosis are increasing and the patterns of ADHD diagnosis are changing in the United States. We now have 5.4 million children who have been diagnosed with ADHD. That is nearly one in ten school age children with an ADHD diagnosis; a million more children than were reported in 2003. Of these children, 2.7 million are currently taking ADHD medication.


Or are they just hyperactive kids?

Old Food Allergy Statistics:

1 out of 25 children suffer from food allergy


New Food Allergy Statistics:

1 out of 12 children now suffer from food allergy

Source: Dr. Ruchi S. Gupta, lead author of a study published in the latest issue of the journal Pediatrics. [2011]

Learning disability:

As many as 1 out of every 5 people in the United States has a learning disability


This is a number that I don’t have a lot of trust in.


About 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy at some point in their lives

Several other sources say 1 in 20 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy


An estimated 1 out of 2 male, or 1 out of 3 female, risk getting cancer
Double that number to see what your risk of dying from cancer is.



A National Chronic Disease Crisis: The Time to Act is Now


Our nation faces a crisis due to the burden of chronic disease. Today, 7 of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States are chronic diseases, and nearly 50% of Americans live with at least one chronic illness. People who suffer from chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and arthritis experience limitations to function, health, activity, and work. These limitations affect the quality of their lives, as well as the lives of their families.


Six easy ways to sweeten food without using refined sugar or artificial sweeteners

(NaturalNews) Sugar is everywhere. And if you have a sweet tooth, it can be quite difficult to avoid it in one of its many refined forms, as it is added to all sorts of processed foods. But not all sugar is bad, and there are many ways to sweeten food without going over the edge, and sometimes without even having to use sugar or a sugar substitute. Here are seven easy ways you can sweeten up foods and drinks without resorting to refined sugars or artificial sweeteners, both of which are linked to health problems:


1) Stevia extract. Said to be 300 times sweeter than sugar by volume, stevia extract is one of the easiest and healthiest ways to sweeten up foods, and particularly beverages, without having to use sugar. Rich in antioxidants such as apidenin, kaempferol and quercitrin, stevia extract works particularly well at sweetening tea, coffee, yerba mate, and various other beverages. And since it contains no sugar and a zero glycemic index, diabetics and others trying to avoid sugar can safely use it without incurring any harmful side effects. (


Just be sure to use only real, pure stevia extract from companies like Wisdom Natural Sweet Leaf, Stevita, or Wholesome Sweeteners, as these brands do not parse and manipulate their stevia like Truvia (Coca-Cola and Cargill) and Pure Via (Pepsico and Merisant) do. Pure stevia extract also typically does not contain processed fillers like dextrose, cellulose powder, and erythritol, all of which are commonly derived from genetically-modified organisms (GMOs).


2) Raw, unrefined honey. If sugar itself is not completely off limits for your diet, raw, unrefined honey is an excellent alternative to table sugar or artificial sweeteners. Rich in healing enzymes, antibacterial components, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients, unprocessed honey is an amazing alkaline-forming food that can naturally sweeten food without spiking blood sugar levels and creating a “sugar rush.” (


When cooking or baking with honey, Prevention magazine recommends substituting only about one-third of the sugar for honey. For the other two-thirds, you can use a healthier, unrefined form of sugar such as evaporated cane juice or coconut sugar, both of which are high in nutrients and elicit a low glycemic index.


3) Himalayan pink salt. Believe it or not, adding a little bit of unrefined sea salt or Himalayan pink salt to your morning smoothie, sweet potato pie, fruit salad, or other sweet beverage or dish can actually enhance its natural sweetness without the need for sugar. Not only does salt help cover up the bitterness inherent in certain foods, but it also causes the natural sweetness of many foods to become more enhanced, which means less sugar is needed to bring them to the desired taste level.


This is the precise reason why many people sprinkle a little bit of salt on watermelon, lemon, and other fruits before eating them — salt essentially increases the brain’s ability to process the sensation of sweetness, which in turns makes naturally sweet foods taste sweeter. (


4) Raw cream. Similar to how salt brings out the natural sweetness of foods while suppressing bitterness, a little bit of raw cream can do the same thing for coffee, soup, stew, pie and various other foods without the need for added sugar. The lactose found in raw cream is a type of natural sugar that adds a slight sweet kick to food without going overboard on the sugar content.


Raw, organic, non-homogenized cream is preferable to most store-bought varieties of cream; however, as this form of cream contains the necessary lactase enzyme required to properly break down lactose. Pasteurized cream does not contain lactase, which can cause digestive upset and other health problems in people with lactose intolerance.


5) Dates. Both date paste and date sugar make excellent sugar substitutes in salad dressings, baked goods, desserts, and other foods that typically call for sugar as an ingredient. Though they obviously contain their own natural sugars, dates are a healthier form of sweetness that also happens to add a delightfully soft texture to foods. Dates also tend to have a milder sweetness with less overall sugar content compared to common table sugar, and yet can still be used instead of table sugar at a 1:1 ratio. (


6) Luo han guo. A native to China, the luo han guo fruit, also known as the “longevity fruit,” is an all-natural sweetener that, just like stevia extract, is roughly 300 times sweeter than sugar by volume. Long utilized as a natural healing remedy for many centuries throughout the Asian world, luo han guo can not only take the place of sugar in food and beverages — luo han guo is commonly sold as the all-natural sweetener “lakanto” for this purpose — but it can also be used as a medicine to help deter the aging process, fight free radical damage, and actually promote healthy blood sugar levels.

Is Tylenol suppressing your childs immune system??

Glutathione and Acetaminophen

“When your child gets a fever, he produces more white blood cells. These white blood cells are part of his immune system and they kill off the virus or bacteria that is making him sick. BMC Pediatrics say that fever increases the production of interferon, which has anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. So if you suppress a fever with medication, you are actually limiting your child’s ability to fight the infection…In animal experiments, if sick animals are allowed to have a fever, they have an increased survival rate compared with animals who had their fever suppressed, so I always welcomed my children’s (rare) fevers as a sign their immune system was working correctly.”

Why the LIFE Business?



Why the LIFE Business? What is all this hype about Orrin Woodward and the LIFE business? Well Orrin states “The LIFE Business is a group who are committed to making a difference by first making a difference in their own families life.”

I often get the question, “well what have you made doing this LIFE thing?” My response is always the same….not much. But, it’s not the business, the training system has it laid out exactly what steps to take consistently, over time to achieve a successful business with LIFE, and my goals and dreams are not the same as the next person. Being involved with this team of people and learning the Leadership principles taught so effortlessly in LIFE, I had to be honest with myself and take a long hard look at how I was running my life compared to that of the many leaders we read about in the recommended leadership books. Do I want a big business? yes. Am I in this for the long term or short? long. So I decided if I wanted people to follow me, I need to change into someone worth following.


When I got started, my marriage was in shambles, my finances were in shambles, and my attitude could use some improvement. Personally,  I felt that I couldn’t help people fix the problems in their lives until I fixed them in mine, otherwise what qualifies me to walk them through these most difficult adjustments? Do you have to take the route I chose? NOWAY, you can build it as fast as you want….these were MY goals, MY choices, MY priorities. YOURS will be tailored to you, that is the beauty of a networking business, you can go as fast or slow, as low or as high you want, and LIFE has pre-paved the road for you, they’ve cleared the minefield, thousands have gone before you, found what worked and what hasn’t so that you can jump on the highway to success.

A little about what the LIFE materials have done in my life. My husband and I were both working long hours, opposite shifts with 3 children, we were miserable in our marriage We still couldn’t manage to pay our bills or get ahead, and we were headed for divorce. Enter LIFE changing materials. I began by listening to a few CDs, I liked the stories and they seemed to lift my mood, I slowly noticed a change in my outlook, I began to think of the future, something I am ashamed to say, at that time I had all but lost hope for. I was also handed a book, boy was I stubborn I thought I had all the answers and had tried everything in my life to fix my broken marriage……What LIFE teaches you and the world does the opposite is to seek out someone who has the results in life that you want, find out how they got them, learn and do it. Back to the book, this was a book written by a marriage counselor who had been married for like 30 years(don’t quote me) and had help hundreds(or thousands) of couples get their marriages back on track. How many of you out their know if your own marriage counselor has a good relationship with their spouse…maybe you should ask them? The book was The5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman and BAM did it blow me away, I had never heard some of these ideas and when I started to apply them I NOTICED A DIFFERENCE!!! It works, it really does….I’m not saying it’s easy, or that we didn’t have snags in the road to changing our marriage…we had lived and thought one way our entire lives, so of course this would take some time. The point is to always keep your eye on the horizon, always get back up from your failures. I can now honestly say that my marriage is stronger than it’s ever been and I am more secure in my relationship, which helps me to be more me, if you understand that…if not, then I am glad you never had to go through anything like that. We continue to read marriage books and listen to the audio CDs because a marriage is like a car, if you don’t maintain it, or put gas in it…’s going to break down. This is a lifestyle change. This is just one story, I have witnessed the same for many other couples and thousands of others have as well…..might just be why Orrin is the #6 leadership guru in the world…(among other reasons :0) )

Next: the dreaded finances….like I said earlier when we started we were both working more than full time, he 50, me 60-72 hours A WEEK! And we still had debt, we still couldn’t pay our bills….I’m sure you’ve felt the strain too. Enter the FINANCES PACK, whoa, let me tell you, it was a slap in the face to here about things like the power of compounding and the dangers when it’s being used against you by banks with “financing”, living within your means, long term vision, etc. But knowledge learned and not applied is useless, and it took until I was backed into a corner to begin applying this principles. Like Orrin says “The pain of staying the same must be greater the pain to change or you will not take the steps necessary for change” , I had reached that point and god willing we will be 100% debt free this year, maybe even before the end of the year. The feeling of seeing that light at the end of the tunnel is priceless.

Back to the business side, I have not been building this as a business, because I made a decision to live my priorities, and at that time, I was not. when asked the questions “what are your priorities in life?” I said GOD, my husband, my children, everything else……..but then the stinger question….”How much time will you spend on those priorities today?” OUCH right? because I said that these were my priorities but most of my time was spent working. Today, I am still a work in progress but with the skills taught in our materials, I am a stay at home mom, homeschooling two out of 3, going to be adding the 3rd this summer. We made the hard choices and cut our spending and expenses and my husband and I committed to each other so that he could put more effort into moving ahead in his company, which he has, I’ll get to that in a minute. The result? we have cut at least $20,000, yes $20,000! a year from our budget to allow me to stay home.

The husband, hasn’t really gotten on board with the business, this happens sometimes and I don’t see it being forever, as my team grows, so will his belief in it and he’ll jump on board…but he did listen  and read the materials and has had a dramatic improvement in his own leadership abilities and people skills (yes they are skills that can be learned, you don’t have to been born with a magnetic personality, you can change) which has lead to not 1 but 2 promotions in the last six months!!! The second he surpassed many that had been ahead of him because he outshined them and made himself an asset to that company. LUCK is a for letter word and its spelled like this : WORK.

Did these changes take some time? Yes. Was it hard? YES

Was it worth it?


I would do it over again in a heartbeat, it’s dream, struggle, victory…………the victory just isn’t as sweet without the struggle. I am now in a position to begin building my own team and helping others achieve their dreams and goals as well, remembering that everyone is different and your dreams are not the same as mine, but I can help lead you to the information that can empower you to make the changes necessary in your life in order to achieve your goals and dreams. I didn’t have anyone else (outside of LIFE) offering to guide me and be my cheerleader during that difficult transition. So what are you waiting for? We have the best compensation plan, the best leaders #6 and #11 leadership gurus in the world Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady. We are the #1 community builder IN. THE. WORLD.

What are you waiting for? The opportunity of a lifetime only comes once. What is the worst that can happen? You’ll have improved thinking, relationships, people skill, leadership skills, business skill, parenting skills. Lets join arm and arm and change our culture in the 8Fs of LIFE: Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Friends, Fun, Freedom and build a Following. Leave a Legacy, you have greatness in you, it’s just waiting to be unlocked.

So lets Have Fun, Make Money and Make a difference, one family at a time.
