My holistic healing journey began around 1994 when I heard renowned Wellness Practitioner Queen Afua, give an inspiring presentation on Holistic Wellness. This was the first time I have heard of holistic health and it made so much sense to me. I read and studied Queen Afua’s book ” Heal Thyself” so many times that the book fell apart from constant use. The 21 Day Detox program described in the book was my first cleanse. This experience made a lasting impression for me to commit to a healthy lifestyle.
In 2006, my journey came full circle. Queen Afua was a presenter at our wholistic conference and I desperately wanted to introduce her so she would hear my heartfelt testimony how she changed my life and that her book was one of the pillars of AABH. I truly believe when the student is ready the teacher will appear.
Yes, I gave up a lot tasty foods of the Standard American Diet (SAD); however, nothing taste better than good health!
