My first introduction to holistic health was 34 years ago when I read two very powerful books; one of which was Dick Gregory’s “Natural Diet for Folks Who Eat” and “The Mucusless Diet Healing System” by Professor Arnold Ehret.  Upon reading these books, I was highly motivated and wanted to experience the level of health that I had read about.  I worked my way up to a 21-day water fast (detoxification) and afterwards changed my eating habits.  Years later I became a member of African Americans for Balanced Health and immediately got involved.  I was pleased to discover this support group and no longer did I have to pursue this lifestyle by myself.  It was nice to find a group.  Now that I am actively involved, including serving as a Board member, I find this lifestyle to be easier than ever!  More recently I’ve even begun practicing yoga and meditation.  I am extremely grateful for a life free from medications and illness.
