  • Like most Americans, Laurie grew up eating the S.A.D. (Standard American Diet), which resulted in nutrient deficiencies in her body. She battled with migraine headaches for a great part of her life.
  • She found no help in conventional medicine. Digging into nutritional research with a single-minded zeal, she became determined to find an answer.
  • Cleaning up her diet, cutting out sugar, choosing organic foods, and detoxing became her protocol. Laurie also jumped back into a regular exercise routine. She added supplements to bridge gaps in her diet. She balanced stress in her life. Voila! The headaches disappeared and as a bonus, she discovered her wellness passion!
