NUTRITIONAL HEALING PATH
Naturopathic remedies emphasize prevention, root cause, and optimal health. Using therapeutic methods and modalities that promote self-healing, This adheres to these foundational principles:
- Natural Healing: Naturopathic health recognizes the self-healing process of the human body. Naturopathic practitioners identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and enhance self-healing.
- Identify and Resolve Causes: Naturopathic Practitioners seek to identify and remove the underlying root causes of the body being unhealthy instead of just focusing on the symptoms.

Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic practitioners encourage clients to pursue their personal spiritual development.

JACQUIE’S PERSONAL STORY
Jacquie consults with and educates her clients about Nutritional and Holistic Wellness. She is an advocate for people facing health challenges and works part-time at The Tennessee Resilience Project in Franklin, TN.
In nineteen ninety-five, when I was forty-three years old, I was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease, causing me to have a medical disability which cost me my career, after faithfully being employed with that company for over twenty-five years. This set me on a rocky path that I oftentimes stumbled off of, yet, through my spiritual growth of these hard times, the Lord has always pulled me up and guided me towards His light.
By the year of two thousand and five, I had somewhat risen above my previous setbacks through the strength of the Lord, and I made the decision to move to Utah, away from my hometown of Texas, to become a full-time grandmother to my daughter’s first two children, Macy and Molly. Everything had been turned into a perfect situation, for I felt as if I was on top of the world. However, the day before I was supposed to move into my new home I was diagnosed with grade three breast cancer. The Lord had had a different plan for me, and so another setback was put in my path. I decided to stay in Dallas, Texas until my treatments and surgeries had been completed. After all of these trials, I finally moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in the year of two thousand and six.
Once I arrived in Utah, I was quite sick from the fall out of my cancer treatments, and, furthermore, I was not sure what to do in order to get my path set on the right track once again. My daughter, Ashley, expressed to me that she wished for me to go and see her homeopathic doctor. He put me on a path that led me to a remarkable recovery, and he helped me to return to my schooling, where I studied natural medicine.
I not only was so excited to be back in school, but, above that, I was elated to have unlimited time to spend with my granddaughters, especially when it came to Saturday mornings where I enjoyed doughnuts and the piano with those precious girls.
By the summer of two thousand and nine, my son-in-law made the decision to change jobs which moved us all down to the south, placing us in the rolling hills of Franklin, Tennessee. This was a new experience, for changing homes and adjusting to a new climate was quite a challenge, but we all overcame it and all was well.
In December of two thousand and ten, I found a lump which resulted in a trip to the doctor’s office, and I was diagnosed with secondary, primary (grade three) breast cancer once again. There is truly something about the fact of moving and getting breast cancer each time, and every single day I pray that God would grant us the opportunity to stay in Tennessee.
This led me to an intense research of the Gerson Therapy as well as a trip to California for a consultation and workshop on the natural way of healing cancer. I made the decision to follow the Gerson Therapy, and after one year my cancer was put into remission; by the year of two thousand and twelve I was cancer free.
My life was finally back on track, hallelujah, I thought. I now had a third granddaughter, Mia, and my family had grown into a beautiful fellowship of Christ. I began to help other people with their health issues, and my clients helped me to continue what I loved most, which was researching natural protocols that I could best use to serve them.
By the year of two thousand and sixteen, I was blessed with two more granddaughters, Madeline and Mara. I still lived in Tennessee at this time, and I was feeling absolutely wonderful, enjoying the life God has blessed me with. Even so, as I was working with a friend, I collapsed and was transported to the ER. After much research I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time, yet it had progressed into a grade three level resulting in a metastatic, incurable disease, so the doctors tell me.
I took a pause from life, feeling the fear that had set in upon me. I continued praying and asking the Lord to give me guidance in my upcoming decisions. Even though it has been a bumpy road, I’m still healing and loving three more grandchildren, Paxie, Peter, and Ronen.
Today, my spiritual growth continues to flourish beyond my wildest dreams, and I find myself in awe of from when I began my walk of cancer, with the Lord by my side, to where I am now, cleansed by His redeeming grace. My family continues to support me in all of my decisions, and perhaps one of the greatest joys of my life is now having six beauteous granddaughters and two handsome grandsons.
Luke 11:9-13 says, “So I say to you, ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened (New King James Version).”
