The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest the patient in the care of the human frame, in proper diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison 1903. The future is now and our health care system is failing us. Thomas Edison was a very wise man, but man has not heeded his words. This is a new day and it’s time to awaken to a new world of health and well-being.
Wellness by Dessa was created as a dream to bring health and wellness to all who seek it. It is our responsibility to take care of our body, mind and spirit. We cannot give this most important right to a system that focuses on drugs and surgery as a way to fix our ills. The human body is a wonderful self-healing entity if given the right nutrients, exercise, emotions and rest. We have lost the art of listening to our bodies to find out what they are trying to tell us. It is the goal of Wellness by Dessa to educate you on how to bring your body back into balance.
Dessa Stone-Pividal is a Certified Natural Health Professional, Certified Hallelujah Acres Health Minister, Professional Clinical Herbalist using Chinese Diagnostics and Graduate of the 3 Week Life Change Program at Hippocrates Institute of Health. She has been studying natural health for over 20 years. Because of her varied educational experiences, she brings an eclectic approach to well-being. What makes Wellness by Dessa different than other holistic professionals? She believes, first and foremost, in the use of food to bring your body back into balance.
Why? because everyone has to eat. As Hippocrates the Father of Medicine stated, “Let Food be thy Medicine and medicine be thy Food”. If we change our eating habits to include healthy whole foods and juices, our body will respond with positive changes.
We begin to feed our bodies on a cellular level and wonderful things start to happen. Nature has provided all the ingredients in whole foods to nourish our bodies. By using food first, there is less cost to the client and the client has control over the process.
Although we focus on using whole foods first, depending upon the client’s health and wishes – herbs, tinctures, wholefood supplements and teas may be recommended.
The next step in our balancing program is to develop a plan for exercise. It is not just about getting your heart rate up and losing weight. There are other metabolic and detoxifying processes that exercise affects. All these processes helps bring the body back into balance. Exercise is just as important as the food you eat.
In addition to exercise, your emotional well-being is important. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, specific emotions are related to different organs and those emotions can cause imbalances. We will address areas of concern and develop strategies to bring your emotional health back into balance.
Last, but not least, your Spiritual Wellness is an important factor. Whether you believe in God or other spiritual philosophies, it is important to make that connection.
In addition to working with individuals who want to start on a path to wellness, Wellness By Dessa also teaches alternative health protocols for those individuals who are struggling with chronic illness. These protocols include – Hallelujah Acres Diet & Lifestyle, Hippocrates Health Institute Life Change Program and other protocols.
