I’ve always had a firm belief that the body can heal itself and in January 2007 I was given the opportunity to put that belief to the test. When I received the shocking news that I had thyroid cancer, I resolved to find an alternative to surgery and began a quest to heal my body naturally. I discovered how to use food as medicine and embarked on a spiritual journey of self awareness, inner healing, and a deepened faith in God.


Fourteen months later, the once cancerous tumor was benign and months after that, the tumor completely dissolved! I am living proof that the body can heal itself when given what it needs. Taking a hiatus from a successful engineering career, I began teaching others about the healing powers of plant-based nutrition and pursuing my mission of inspiring others to live their healthiest and best lives!

Work with me on your journey to holistic health.
