It’s hard to know who to listen to when it comes to your health.

Here’s a bit about how we reversed some very challenging situations amidst a lot of conflicting information. But first, let me ask you….

Do you want to live a healthier life, but

  • you’re just too busy,
  • overwhelmed with all of the choices out there, or
  • you just don’t know where to start?
  • you’ve tried everything but NOTHING works,
  • you barely have energy for even the basic things in life?

Do you wonder if you’ll ever feel better and can finally have JOY back in your life?

I was once there too and well, I am here to tell you that there is hope.

No matter where you are in the process…

Your confident hype-free healthy living journey starts here.

And I’m here to help.

Being a mom (or a dad, or just an adult these days) is hard.

You have to keep food on the table, take care of the kids (and yourself), handle bills, possibly pets, and fit a little self care in (hopefully).

Plus, we live in a world where more and more people are dealing with health issues.

It’s hard to know what kind of diet is best and how to keep the junk food away. There are lots of great recipe sites, but who has time to be a gluten-free or paleo chef?

Online health gurus say conflicting things and recommend very expensive protocols.

Plus everyone seems to be selling something that’s supposedly THE ticket to better health–but you try it and….

you’re still. not. better.

Functional practitioners sound like a great idea, but what if you can’t really afford all of that testing–and what if the things they recommend don’t work either?

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Some Happy Readers’ Comments…

“I really appreciate you. I appreciate your attention to detail. I appreciate your intense research. I have definitely grown to trust you-in fact, in doing internet searches for recipes or info on various topics, I’ll come across a link from Whole New Mom and I get really excited because I know I can trust it 🙂

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!”

“I just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU for the information you provide on your site. I found my way here through the recipes–the coffee substitute, in particular–and the information you linked to….completely blew me away. I’ve known intuitively for months now that I need to decrease and eventually eliminate my caffeine consumption, but I have not been truly motivated to change until now.

I don’t have the time or expertise to do all the research myself, and even if I did, I don’t think I’d be able to discern at the same level that you are able to.

I am so impressed with the depth of questions and interviews and reading you do to come to a conclusion about a trustworthy product.

There’s so many companies and products out there, and you do the heavy lifting for those of us who care about healthy living but don’t always know who to trust.

Our Miraculous Story

Growing up, I had some health concerns, but after our oldest was born with severe eczema and multiple life-threatening food allergies, and later autism, I got really sick.

My doctor said I was fine, but I wasn’t.

I started intense research, desperate to find answers. Some things helped, but not enough, and there were a lot of scams and false promises along the way. I needed help–but what?

After years of trial and error, I was in a pit of despair.

I’d literally traveled across the country to see a health practitioner who was supposed to have an answer to my ongoing ongoing bone crushing fatigue, but I came home worse than before.

In desperation, I told God I was done. I didn’t have it in me to fight anymore.

Then, I remembered a friend whose family overcame horrible chronic illness by going back to basics instead of chasing practitioners and endless supplements. It seemed too simple to be true, but WHAT DID WE HAVE TO LOSE? 

My oldest and I jumped in.

One by one, we started well-researched in-home therapies and the results were nothing short of miraculous.

  • The overwhelming fatigue vanished and I had energy I thought I’d never have again.
  • Our son is edging off the spectrum, is on the Dean’s List in college, and is losing his life-threatening food allergies.
  • He’s now able to eat dairy and even egg! We wonder what he’ll be able to eat next!
  • I had developed a nearly anaphylactic reaction to egg, and that vanished too.
  • The oral allergy syndrome that plagued me into my adulthood was gone too.
  • The literally debilitating seasonal allergies I’d had in high school (I stayed home for six weeks every year during high school) and college–GONE

Now, it’s my passion to share what I’ve learned with you, so that out of our trials, there can be joy for others.

No matter where you are on your healthy living journey, I get it and won’t stop digging–for me and for you.

While we are a miracle story, my search continues and I’ll continue to share what I learn and what helps us optimize our health.

More About Me

Much of what I’ve learned has been gained in the well-known School of Hard Knocks (perhaps we were in class together there), but I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Virginia, including advanced level nutrition.

I’m a soon to be certified health coach and am enrolled in a Therapeutic Nutritional Counseling Course. I’ve also completed a Natural Family Planning course and am enrolled in Aviva Romm’s Herbal Woman course.

I’ve managed and cooked for a child with life-threatening food allergies for 21 years, and have taught at several local healthy living events.
