It is my honor and pleasure to find you here!
You or someone you know is struggling with a chronic disease. Am I right?
I know this because more than 70% of US citizens take at least one prescription drug on a daily, ongoing basis. As roughly 5% of the world’s population, Americans consume more than 50% of all prescriptions. And it’s not uncommon to find individuals on 8 prescriptions or more, sometimes augmented by a bag of 20 or more supplements.
The statistics just keep getting worse. Suffice it to say that we pay more than twice that of any other country for “health care”, yet our health statistics look worse than many third world countries.
As a retail pharmacist, I simply couldn’t take it any longer. So I went back to school to become something radically different. That process changed my world. It also significantly altered my worldview. I traded my pharmacist mantle for the trained hands, heart and mind of a naturopathic physician!
Can I pause right here just to say how blessed I feel to have the training that I have? I’m medically “bilingual!” I understand both conventional medicine—heck, I know the drugs better than most medical doctors do—and natural forms of healing! I LOVE my work!
Would you like to know why? Because I teach my clients how to reverse their diseases. I get to watch “medical miracles” happen every day!
When it came time to name my business, I chose Monarch. While my husband likes to tell people the term is to designate me as the reigning queen (ha!), it’s really about the transformational process folks undergo in obtaining their personal medical miracles, much like the monarch butterfly as it changes from caterpillar to butterfly.
Now, 30+ years as a pharmacist (my license is still active), 15 years as a naturopathic physician, and 7 years writing classes for my profession, I’m focusing on you, Dear Reader, and your family/friends struggling with chronic disease. I want to get the message of health back in the American psyche! I want better for my own friends and family. Genes are a relatively small piece of the equation; it’s more about the other things we get from our parents, like their lifestyle, their coping mechanisms and their belief systems.
More than 80% of the diseases that are killing us are now lifestyle-driven! Things like alcohol & tobacco use, sedetary lifestyles and poor diets are contributing to the development of disease now more than anything else.
Does that shock you?
Well, if it’s our lifestyle that’s killing us, then doesn’t it make sense that changing the lifestyle would cure us? YES!
I can teach you how to do that!
Can you imagine what it must be like to be a grubby caterpillar, crawling along the earth and plants, eating, and then suddenly, hanging from a stalk and creating something bigger than itself (the chrysalis or cocoon)… then becoming something else altogether?! A bright bit of flying art—exactly what it was meant to be!
Would you like that for yourself? I would be honored and ever-so-pleased to help you walk through your very own transformation!
Does that seem scary? Or like the adventure of a lifetime? Or a bit of both? Let’s talk about that next…
