Amie struggled with chronic leg swelling, stomach problems and colitis; even venturing out to Mayo Clinic in 2010 to hear there was nothing wrong with her. Amie decided she had to take this into her own hands and sought alternative options. After spending several years dealing with severe digestive issues, while pursuing a career in marketing and advertising, Amie’s health continued to deteriorate so she quit her job and decided to dedicate her time to healing herself. Using acupuncture, yoga, meditation, herbal medicine and fresh, organic 100% whole, unprocessed foods, Amie healed and remains 100% symptom free nearly six years later.
