My Holistic Wellness Story

Amber became a integrative holistic practitioner due to her own previous health challenges with Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS) and Raynaud's disease along with various other afflictions such as: heavy metal “mercury” toxicity, IBS, Leaky Gut Syndrome, ADD, hypothyroid, endometriosis, migraine headaches and Fibromylagia. And including upper respiratory issues such as:  allergies, sinusitis, ear infections, flu, and pneumonia.

Holistic wellness is a unique and challenging journey for each person. It is both a humbling and beautiful experience to contribute to someone's health improvement by balancing their body, soul and spirit. I am honored to be of service to you.
