Start Here

Think of this website as the start of your journey back to yourself

…the person you were before the unwanted symptoms, exhaustion and frustrations that seem to sum up your life.

I’m delighted you’re here and I hope these Getting Started links (below) offer you the nourishment you are looking for.

I’ve dedicated this work to address the mind and body from my alternative perspective after healing myself from over a decade of chronic health issues. My goal is for you to look beyond the health sphere as we know it, and look to the root causes of emotional and physical pain, especially through a deep exploration of toxins, one of the primary culprits. Toxins are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the negative thoughts and emotional pain (trauma) that take over our mind. They’re inside our cosmetics and personal care products, paints and carpets, and even mattresses and clothing as well as hiding in the outdated stories we’re subconsciously projecting in our mind and using to create our own experiences.

Sadly, none of us are brought up with the knowledge of how these toxins drastically affect our health and entire well-being – physically, emotionally and energetically. Had we known about all of this, we wouldn’t be facing the health crises that we are today.

I’ve turned what I have learned from my challenges with the medical system, my life, and my inner self into a guide that can transform how you feel and that is what I’m sharing with you throughout this website. You can use the below to start making changes in your life because every change – big or small – is a step in the right direction. Here’s a peek of what you’ll discover.


Here you’ll find recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, side dishes, condiments and beverages that are gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, and refined sugar-free. All recipes are vegetarian/vegan and made without animal products. Feel free to add your own organic animal protein to my recipes, if desired. There are recipes for any time of day, any season and any occasion.


Here you’ll find a place where you can come and feel like you’re sitting in a spa, talking to your best friend or having a deep conversation with yourself about your thoughts and fears. Through tips, tricks and reflections organized into the sections, Healing Modalities, Mind-Body, and Unraveling, you will revitalize your mind, body, and emotions by discovering naturally detoxifying remedies that are out of the box and unknown to many practitioners.


Here you’ll find the fun and playful side of me throughout Relaxing Music, Books I Love to Read, and NYC Guide. You will get a glimpse into my life – my favorite products, brands, styles, books, music – to get to know me beyond the realm of food. It’s nice to take a little break from health and food to indulge your senses in therapeutic ways of healing through sound, travel, fashion and of course, the best of Manhattan.


Here you’ll find resources to cultivate optimal health through Natural Home, Anti-Inflammatory Foods, Doctors + Healers, Functional + Integrative Medicine, Natural Beauty + Detox. These features will guide you through pieces of your life that you may not conventionally address. I will help you look around at all the seemingly harmless things in your home and environment that contribute to health issues as well as alternative self-care for the internal and external body.


Here you’ll find a series of in-depth and extensive programs that you can use to embark on your journey to wellness if you are experiencing health issues or you’re looking for my first-hand knowledge to help navigate you on your path and jump-start your healing. There are a handful of anti-inflammatory programs for you to choose from. Each solution includes a meal plan, foods to eat and exclude, supplements to take and a very detailed step-by-step look at inflammation and detoxification. Click on each program on my Programs page to read more about each individual program. 


In my #1 best-selling cookbook, Eating Clean, The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation, and Reset Your Body, I share my story with you because I have a feeling you may have gone through a similar experience. Maybe you didn’t get as sick as I did—or maybe you suffered something even worse—but chances are, you found yourself at the end of your rope, failed by Western (conventional) medicine, with nowhere left to turn.

Mine is probably the most extreme tale you’ve ever heard, but I have to be honest: these adjustments changed my body and my life for the better. In the end, my health issues were a blessing in disguise because now I’m able to help all of you.

Below are a few links for you to get started and acclimated to clean eating, Functional and Integrative Medicine, energy work and liver detoxification.

Much Love,
