There are times when, for no explanation, you know something is right. I knew in my gut, even before I walked in the door that Holistic Wellness Alternatives was the place for me to gain a degree of health that I haven’t had for many years.
Last year I read an article in “Natural Awakenings” magazine about the health coaches and their work at Holistic Wellness in Yorktown Heights. In the article they spoke of the toxins and dangerous electromagnetic fields in our world and the fact that our bodies are more toxic and dis-eased than ever before. The article mentioned that mothers are passing on these toxins to their unborn babies and that ideally women should do what they can to rid their bodies of any toxins before they get pregnant. This struck a chord in me as my husband and I had been trying to conceive a child for several years.
In addition to my goal of having another child, I walked into the Holistic Wellness office with the following list of complaints: negative mood, lack of energy, muscle pain, poor sleep, psoriasis, and a rare skin condition called Darier’s Disease that I have had since adolescence. Since I was 14, I have been self-conscious about my skin condition which has steadily increased in area. It is (was) not only ugly but often times very uncomfortable. Through the years I’ve been to many dermatologists, but none knew the cause other than to say it is genetic. They said they could treat the symptoms but that it would never go away and would continue to spread. They gave me conflicting advice and numerous topical creams that had little or no effect. I also had psoriasis on my scalp which became quite troublesome as I was beginning to lose hair as result.
When I walked into the office, I knew my first instincts were correct. My work with Dan Court has been nothing short of amazing. He has a strong yet gentle energy about him which he uses quite successfully in his work. He provides a safe environment in which he implements noninvasive techniques to assess where my body is in dis-ease and develops a simple plan specifically designed for my needs. The way Dan uses their unique Wellness System is a wonder, as it allows the body to communicate what is not working well and how to improve it. Through the use of oils and whole food supplements as well as my commitment to a healthy diet, we have been able to rid my body of heavy metals/toxins such as Mercury, Lead, Chlorine and Formaldehyde. This detoxification has allowed my body to begin healing from the damage caused by these toxins. What a difference!!!!!!
It used to take me a long time to fall asleep and I would wake frequently during the night. Now I am asleep quickly and sleep soundly through the night. My energy level has increased and most of my aches and pains are gone. The knot in my shoulder which was there for years disappeared almost immediately. I had painful Plantar Fasciitis which has not acted up in at least 6 months. My mood has taken a 180-degree turn. Rather than being irritable and “down” most days I am calm and joyful. The psoriasis is all but gone and the thin patches of hair are growing back. Not long ago I thought the Darier’s Disease was something I just had to live with for the rest of my life. Not anymore! My skin hasn’t looked this good in 20 years!!!!!! The Darier’s Disease has improved by at least 80% and I have full faith that I will be rid of it completely. Most importantly, when my husband and I begin “trying” again I am confident that I have created the healthiest environment in which to conceive and grow a beautiful, strong baby. The words “thank you” are not nearly strong enough to show my appreciation to Dan and the Holistic Wellness team but thank you just the same.
