As a Common Sense Wellness Practitioner and Coach, I believe it’s a myth that you can capture good health in a catch phrase, mission statement or slogan.  Wellness is too complex, too  multi-faceted, with outside influences, environment, diet, and toxins (physical or emotional) all playing a role.

As a Common Sense Wellness Practitioner and Coach, I believe it’s a myth that you can heal the planet.  See the first myth above, and add to that the vast scope of the planet with millions upon billions of additional influences.

As a Common Sense Wellness Practitioner and Coach, I believe it’s a myth that can “fix” your family, your animal, your neighborhood, or your town.  There is both arrogance and an illusion of control in this thinking.

Hang onto your hope.  There IS something powerful that you CAN do.

You CAN heal yourself and set an inspiring example while holding others as able.  As others work on their own healing, the effect ripples and spreads.

You CAN offer tools for healing and then get out of the way, allowing the body to do what it is designed to do.  The body is perfectly designed to seek life, and then to seek health.



My Common Sense Wellness approach is the combination of
Principles – Common sense broad-spectrum wellness knowledge. A lifetime of wellness study covering a wide range of mainstream and alternative topics for animals and people.
Practices – Wellness techniques to assist you and your animals. A combination of nutrition, ortho-bionomy, acupressure, craniosacral, herbology, homeopathics, essential oils, applied kinesiology, environment & equipment evaluation & refinement, energy testing, and firsthand experience.
Practitioners – Referrals to a wide network of skilled wellness practitioners, such as experts in craniosacral, oils, nutrition, herbs and various bodywork techniques.
