I'm an Integrated Health & Wellness Practitioner:  I became interested in holistic health when I was diagnoses with Multiple sclerosis (MS) over 20 years ago. Today I have 16 years in remission (meaning no symptoms/relapses). My goal is to assist others in living their best life possible, with maladies. Let's put our illness to sleep, for as long as possible. Let's live healthier so our bodies can be lean, mean disease-fighting machines. Email me your inquiries. I specialize in MS, Type 2 Diabetes, Depression, and Preventative Care.

Chronic Disease Questionnaire 

Interview Guide for Adults with Chronic Diseases

In terms of wellness, a chronic disease is a condition that is ongoing, persistent, and lasting with no long-term cure; the condition is often relapsing and remitting. In other words, a person will have a specific disease or health condition for the entirety of their life; they will experience good intervals and bad intervals. This interview guided is developed to understand the needs of adults with chronic (long-term) health conditions and their willingness to participate in health and wellness programs.
