Jodi's Story

Jodi was a gymnast and body builder with a poor diet (S.A.D.) consisting of a high sugar intake that included Hostess Ding Dongs, Cupcakes and Ho-Ho’s before a work out. Nonetheless, she was able to bench press 185 pounds, weighing on average 125 lbs.

Misdiagnosed and Overmedicated

Jodi fell down on the ice in the winter of 1996. Medical professionals told her that the pain was all in her head, that she had mental health issues, that pills would rectify her ills, and she would need to be on these pills for the rest of her life. No one ever asked Jodi about her high sugar diet.

As a result, Jodi was overmedicated, her body shut down and she nearly died in 2013. Reflecting upon Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity, “doing the same thing and expecting a different result,” Jodi decided to make a complete lifestyle change

Health and Wellness

After being properly diagnosed by a team of doctors, Neurologists, Psychologists and Orthopedists; and on the advice of her now Psychologist, Dr. Michelle Kukla, of Healthy Living Counseling Center in Palatine, IL, Jodi explored healthy eating (Organic Whole Foods), alternative care such as Acupuncture, EFT Tapping, EMDR, the BAUD, and Meditation to support her body in healing itself. Jodi also sought out other healing modalities such as Essential Oils, Chiropractic Care, Applied Kinesiology, Energy Healing and Muscle Activation Technique (MAT). She now intimately understands that “The POWER that made the body HEALS THE BODY, it happens no other way” – B.J. Palmer
