I called this blog ZIGGAZAG because it represents what I feel to be the best pathway through life and business. Expecting to get somewhere in a straight, uninterrupted progression is just setting yourself up for failure and recriminations. Plus, you miss so many of life’s delightful ‘detours’ because the Universe is a magical place and since when is magic linear?
In my experience, staying open, flexible, zigging and zagging like a good rugby player, yields the highest rewards.
My journey through life (thus far) encompasses two themes: Health and Business.
I started with a Bachelor’s degree in English and Sociology from the University of Alberta (1989). Then worked as a journalist and magazine editor in Tokyo, Japan for two years, followed by three years in the music business in London, U.K. I then set up a telecommunications company in Vancouver, BC, sold it five years later and started a publishing company.
Today, I am internationally recognized expert on natural healing for digestive diseases. I healed myself of widespread Crohn’s Disease and have remained drug and surgery-free for over 19 years. I’ve appeared on numerous TV and radio shows throughout the U.S., giving people hope and vision for how they too can heal their Colitis, Crohn’s, Diverticulitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), using entirely natural methods. My books on natural healing for digestive diseases have sold worldwide in over 40 countries.
I also have a DVD on natural healing for Colic – recommended in Parents Magazine (#1 in the U.S.). And a line of Sleeptime Stories on CD for children aged 2-6.
My health articles have been published in magazines and journals in Canada, the U.S., U.K., and Australia. I currently live with my husband and three children in White Rock, BC, Canada – but I’d like to also live in Mexico or Panama!
