As a survivor of 2 health crises (Colon Cancer and Autoimmune), she believes “sickness is optional” and is passionate about sharing how she reversed 28 symptoms despite conventional medicine giving up on her.

On her path to healing, she discovered doctors who focus on healing, not duct taping symptoms. So she decided to channel those conversations into a podcast and to shine a bright spotlight on them and their formula for health.
