Looking back over my life, I have realized that God has put me on a journey. You may feel the same holds true for you as well. My journey started with my parents. They taught me right from wrong; how to be responsible, reliable, honest and fair. As I continued into my adulthood, I made many mistakes – all part of the journey. I discovered along the way that many of the hard lessons I learned were invaluable. I’ve celebrated many amazing and happy experiences; the birth of my daughter, the adoption of my son and later – the blessing of four amazing stepsons that came as part of a “family package” the day I married my soul mate, Daryl.
Daryl and I were the epitome of a truly happy couple. Marriage of course never comes without its challenges. This is where my journey really began. Daryl had his first heart attack three years after we were married in 2006 and another in 2009. In December of 2011, he was diagnosed with Stage D prostate cancer. In October of 2014, he had another heart attack, and in January of 2015, he had a quadruple bypass. In alternating years, he had flare-ups with the prostate. Wow! That’s a lot happening in 12 + years, right? Along the way I learned anything and everything I could to attempt to heal Daryl. Though he participated in modern medicine, he was also willing to trust in holistic medicine. We had success with applied kinesiology ( muscle testing), healthier food choices, chiropractic care, essential oils, energy healing, electromagnetic field devices and many other alternatives. All of these in combination extended the quality and duration of his life.
My story doesn’t have a happy ending … yet. Daryl passed away in May 2016. I know he didn’t survive his many health challenges, but we learned many things along the way that kept him comfortable while he was on his journey of life. Plain and simple, we don’t know why we have to go when we do. That is only a question God can answer. I do know that Daryl would not want me to waste the knowledge that I gained through helping him. I am truly grateful that I had 13 happy years of marriage with Daryl and it was a privilege to take care of him.
This is how “Healthy You” was created. It’s a place to share and learn about other viable alternatives and holistic medical professionals that may be able to help. I would like it to be a resource that brings hope to everyone who feels they have nowhere else to go. My hope is to help you along the way with your journey. This is what keeps me going – to create my new happy ending by helping others and to honor the memory of my husband, knowing he will always be by my side.
To God be the Glory Always,
My mission and philosophy are the same. I want to expand people’s knowledge with regard to the mind, body and spirit. They are three in one – when one is lacking or ill, the others can’t be ignored. I am comfortable with this purpose and this is where I need to be in this space in time – helping people who have no hope and don’t know where to turn because modern medicine isn’t working for them. My wish is for people to experience total healing with their body, mind and spirit … to be restored once more.
