Finding Your Health in a Modern World: Donna Markussen, Finding Your Health

Aug 18, 2017 08:14AM

Finding health in a modern world can be a daunting task. With our busy schedules, it's almost impossible to decide what diet is best. One day we believe a certain diet is the one, then, the next day, a new one comes along, to claim to be the best scientifically proven diet, contradicting everything you thought you believed you were doing right.

Stress, making bad food choices, and lack of quality rest and sleep, leads to chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation leads to disease and a host of auto-immune disorders. In order to take back control of your health, feel more energized and sleep better, you will learn ways to implement easy steps to get you on the road to health.

Donna Markussen, is a certified holistic health and wellness coach, a breast cancer survivor, auto-immune disease conqueror and author. She writes about her health challenges in her memoir Finding My Way, Facing My Journey with Courage. When Donna was going through a debilitating auto-immune disease, she turned to alternative medicine, as the Western doctors told her she would have to live with her disease and stay on medications the rest of her life. That was when she turned to the late Dr. James D’Adamo, known as the “grandfather” of naturopathic medicine. Through this experience, Donna was able to completely reverse her symptoms and get off all medication. Now Donna is inspired to teach others about the benefits of whole foods nutrition, intuition (listening to our body's signals) and self-care (taking quality time for ourselves). Donna will share how she accomplished health, and inspire others to become their own health advocate.
