Some experiences can change the course of your life completely. In 1995, this happened to me when my one year old child reacted violently to a taste of peanut butter.
We sought treatments such as were available at the time and urgently adapted to a state of hyper vigilance. I studied nutrition and energy-based modalities looking for ways to recover. At the same time, I scoured the medical literature. I wanted to know what had happened, how and why my child and by the late 90's scores of other children had suddenly become atopic and anaphylactic to common foods.
Today, I am an advocate for holistic health and health choice. My studies have included BodyTalk, Quantum Touch, iridology, bioenergetics and nutrition through IHN (Toronto). I have a special interest in consciousness based practice. In this context, I make and offer two muscle testing tools.
In 2017, the third edition of my book The Peanut Allergy Epidemic was published with a foreword by another allergy parent and friend, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. This book is a deep dive into the complex and deeply challenging world of health politics.
In addition to studies in health, I hold an MA in Art History from Queen's University, and two undergrad degrees in Art History and Education from Western University.
Below are a few holistic health schools, health expos, radio programs and podcasts where I have presented live on the subjects of holistic health and the peanut allergy epidemic. Scroll over the logos -- some are hot linked.
