Most Memorable Moment at IHN
I had the unexpected honour of being one of the speakers at my graduation. As I walked up to the podium, I remembered all the things I had practiced in Professional Skills. I wanted to represent my school and classmates in the most professional and loving way, so I spoke from my heart and the words I had previously written to Elizabeth seemed to flow effortlessly. This was my very first public speaking engagement, which until that very moment, I was unaware of. You see, Elizabeth did not tell me I would be speaking that day. With Elizabeth’s wisdom and amazing insight, she knew it would be better if I wasn’t told in advance and she was right! I felt so connected with the audience and the energy in the room was incredible. I will never forget the feeling of pride and love from my family and friends. It was a very magical moment…thank you Elizabeth!
Favourite Class at IHN
I looked forward to every single course as I learned something profound and exciting from each class. Comparative Diets, taught by Murat was amazing! I often refer to my notes on holistic individuality such as oxidative, endocrine, and blood type diets as part of my evaluation, and protocol for my clients. Ayurveda was a mind opening experience and Kamsella shared so many interesting stories. We learned about the different constitutions such as Kapha, Vada, and Pitta which added another dimension to my learning experience. I had the pleasure of having Josephine as my teacher for Professional Skills Development, where I discovered my love of public speaking. Honestly, the entire program at IHN was outstanding and I’m proud to be a graduate of this incredible and wonderful Institute!
Currently Doing in the Field of Holistic Nutrition
The most important role I’ll ever have is being a Gerson Caregiver to my husband. I’m a cancer survivor, and my husband Fred has been battling prostate cancer for a number of years. Due to my experience at IHN, Fred decided to heal the holistic way, so we went to the Gerson Clinic in Mexico. This was an amazing experience, one we will never forget. The protocol we learned from the Gerson Institute requires a tremendous amount of dedication, but Fred is doing well and his results are very promising.
Fred and I are in a documentary regarding the Gerson treatment called “The Food Cure”. We had two wonderful journalists Sarah Mabrouk, and Fred Lafargue, film our day-to-day activities in regards to the Gerson protocol. Sarah has visited our home numerous times documenting Fred’s progress. Fred is one of 5 patients Sarah has been following, and we are hoping the documentary will be ready to be seen in theatres by the end of 2014. We feel honoured to be a part of this, and we hope the information regarding alternative treatment will reach as many people as possible.
I believe everything happens for a reason. My cancer experience changed my path in life and now I’m dedicated to helping others regain their health. I have a practice at a wonderful clinic in Hamilton called Hands that Heal Wellness Center where my main focus is with helping clients with active cancer and as well prevention.
