At Organic Olivia, we believe that natural remedies, herbs and food can help prevent disease and increase quality of life. That the mind-body-spirit connection to physical illness is always present, and that integrating eastern views to western medicine can heal the body.

What started as one-woman’s blog has rapidly turned into a global tribe of like-minded individuals seeking knowledge, tools and resources for leading a healthier and more fulfilling life.

We are dedicated to the research, education, advocacy and creation of natural remedies to heal and nourish the body and are committed to providing the tools to empower you to make the right decisions for your body.

Thank you for being part of our Organic Olivia Community.

Olivia’s Story

The Short Story:

After facing health issues all my life with no answers, I decided to search for the root cause of chronic illness. This led me to traditional systems of medicine, and taught me that all physical illness has an emotional and spiritual aspect as well. Organic Olivia started as a blog of my journey of learning and healing. It has vastly grown into a destination for tips on how to use food and herbs as medicine, how to avoid and remove toxins from your body, the root causes and deficiencies behind illness, alternative remedies, and more! I am an investigator, a researcher, a self-advocate and an advocate for the health and freedom of all human beings. I am nothing more than a seeker of the truth, because that’s all I have ever wanted.

The Long Story:

Hello beautiful.

My name is Olivia and I created this blog-turned-company when I was at rock bottom emotionally and physically. I am not a doctor… I am not a nutritionist… and I do not have every answer. But I’ll tell you something wonderful: you do. You have the power to find every solution you are looking for and heal yourself from the inside out. You have to power to learn and build a life of perfect health, starting today.

Since I’ve already told you what I’m not, I’d love to share with you who I am, and how I discovered it. I am an investigator…. A researcher…. A self-advocate and an advocate for the health and freedom of all human beings. I am nothing more than a seeker of the truth, because that’s all I have ever wanted.

My struggle throughout all my life was food, weight, self-love, and happiness, which is why I began writing and blogging – to help others struggling with the same issues.

The picture on the left is me in 2010, while the picture on the right is me in 2013.

When I was young, I just didn’t fit in with the other kids. I was weird. I liked to play instruments, watch the Twilight Zone and build villages out of aluminum foil. Looking back I was actually awesome… and such an old soul! But others didn’t understand this, and I was bullied a lot. I was called ‘four eyes’ and fat – all the time. I was overweight throughout my entire childhood and thought about it every single day. One day, my friend’s little brother laughed at my weight and told me to “go eat a cheeseburger!” The only thing I could retaliate with was, “go eat something organic!” Ironic now, don’t you think? Haha! I was sick all the time, with constant infections, stomach problems, food allergies, and viruses. I remember I got so tired of taking different antibiotics that my parents had to hide them in Wendy’s cheeseburgers (definitely not the best choice!). Being on constant prescriptions was the norm in my eyes.

I remember I would eat ENTIRE boxes of Quaker granola bars while sitting in front of the TV, just because I was bored and unhappy. I couldn’t stop.

This started in elementary school. My parents who also struggled with weight and eating would always say, “Ok, tomorrow we’ll clean the crap out of the house, I promise, but tonight let’s celebrate and eat all the junk food we want!” We would go to CVS and get bags of candy and cookies to indulge on. Of course, “cleaning the crap out” would never work and we would always fail on our “diets”… It was such a vicious cycle, and it was all I knew.

As I entered middle school, my mom took me to weight watchers and I discovered a little thing called calorie counting. My obsession with food turned into an obsession with calories, which led me down a very slippery slope of eating 200-calorie soy burgers and 0-calorie diet sodas for the entire day. Everyone around me kept congratulating me on my weight loss, not knowing I was doing it in the most unhealthy way possible eating barely enough food, which happened to be made of toxic chemicals and artificial sweeteners. When I got to high school, I stopped undereating, but continued to count calories as food still controlled my life.

Then came 11th grade. My mom was talked into giving me a Gardasil vaccine and after my third shot, I knew something was wrong. I began sleeping way too long at night, never feeling rested, falling asleep in class, forgetting everything, and began suffering from painful cystic acne all over my face and back which had never happened before. About a week after the third round, the stomach spasms began – some days I was curled in bed for hours writhing in pain from what doctors told me was simply “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” which had “no cause.” Of course, there was a VERY clear cause…. my liver was absolutely overloaded trying to excrete the dangerous levels of aluminum in Gardasil. I had tingling in my hands and feet, among many other symptoms that correlate with heavy metal toxicity. There is a cause for every effect. Don’t ever take “no cause” for an answer, because digging a little deeper changed my entire life.

In the months following, my health continued to spiral. I had no more motivation to count calories, and although I was eating a normal amount, I gained 40 pounds. I was depressed, anxious, and frustrated all the time (symptoms of an overloaded liver). I couldn’t lose weight, I felt too sick and exhausted to exercise, and I felt hopeless. My digestion and IBS were worse than ever. Doctors told me it was all in my head and gave me anti-depressants within 5 minutes of speaking with me. They made me a zombie while taking them, and suicidal while withdrawing from them (I wouldn’t wish withdrawal and “brain zaps” on anyone).

One day I looked at myself in the mirror and something clicked. SOMETHING had to change. I didn’t want to be stuck in this cycle anymore. Pills didn’t work. Antidepressants didn’t work. I wanted out! I wanted the good that I knew existed in this world.

I started to research what healthy eating really was – not calorie counting! I read alternative sites that really delved into nutrition and its effect on the mind and body. I read testimonials of disease and depression being cured through food alone. I began having a banana and almonds for breakfast, salads for lunch, fruit and carrots for snacks. I even went gluten free. I researched more and more. I began reading again, and watching videos and documentaries that challenged my mind instead of trying to keep up with parties and other teens my age. I finally found things that made me happy besides food. I was still feeling some effects of my sluggish liver, but things were getting BETTER for once.

A few months later, I received a nearly full scholarship to Fordham University. I was overjoyed… except for one thing. They did not offer nutrition as a major, which is what I wanted to study after my recent epiphanies about food. I decided that instead of studying nutrition,

I’d go straight into pre-med so that I could become a doctor and finally figure out the cause of all my ailments. But something wasn’t right – I hadn’t received answers from my own doctor about the issues plaguing me for years, so how could Western medicine truly provide me with the tools to find a solution? Still, I grudged through 4 months of 9 classes at once and the stress hit me like a tidal wave. I know now, through my studies of Chinese medicine, that stress immediately affects your liver, so what happened next is retrospectively no surprise.

I got sick. Really sick. I could feel that this time was different. I developed a huge cyst on my groin that turned purple and pussed. The lymph nodes under my arms began to develop cysts as well, because my blood was so toxic and polluted. My stomach problems were worse than ever. I had a low grade fever and migraines every day morning to night, and my vision was blurry. I almost collapsed in the shower, so my mom took me to the doctor immediately.

Once again, doctors were at a loss. They poked and prodded and tested me for everything. Not once did they ask me what I was eating, and not once did they ask me if I was under stress. I was left with no answers for weeks. My doctor, however, did take the time to suggest the birth control pill to me several times while I was visiting him for my unexplained fatigue and obvious overall toxicity. I reluctantly agreed and within 48 hours developed “erythema nodosum” nodes all over my legs and had to go to the hospital. My immune system and organs were just giving up, and not a single soul told me about cleansing and cleaning out my body.

A week later, my cysts and lymph nodes swelled up even more, and the fatigue was killing me. My doctor finally decided to put me on an antibiotic “just in case.” Similar to the birth control, this was a wrong move. It just kept adding to my liver burden. One day in chemistry class, I started sweating uncontrollably and my skin turned a sallow yellow hue. I checked my phone and had an e-mail from my doctor saying “Your liver enzymes are through the roof, it’s not a bacterial infection it’s Epstein Barr Virus! Stop taking the antibiotic immediately!”

Much of the damage was already done. I was angry and confused. I was starting to hate my body and was completely out of touch with it’s beautiful, innate healing power. I went home, sweaty and exhausted, and said “I. Am. Done.” No more doctors. I’m going back to the basics.

I picked the most ancient medicine I could think of, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and started from the beginning. I learned about yin and yang, and the meridians/organ systems. I sucked up all the information I could find about liver disorders, and eventually diagnosed myself with “damp heat.” If you think of a damp, hot setting – naturally, viruses and bacteria would breed happily. This is the Chinese interpretation of the state of my liver. I ordered herbs that were “dry and cool” for balance that specifically targeted the liver.

I went to a Chinese herbalist by my house and he gave me a gentle full-body detox tea that is used today by many people to eradicate cancer. In a few weeks, my cysts and lymphs nodes shrunk. I could digest food again. I wasn’t constantly swollen and inflamed. It was working. These silly herbs rejected by mainstream medicine were working.

I was hooked. I was so proud of myself for finding natural solutions. I wanted more. I wanted to know WHY I got sick in the first place. I wanted to know how to achieve optimal health.

I started my blog so that I could inspire others to research and open the Pandora’s Box I was knee deep in.

Since beginning my website, I find answers to my questions every single day. Seek and you shall find. I keep getting healthier. I keep getting one step closer to the way my perfect body was designed to thrive. And it’s all because I’m following my passion. I’m doing this for everyone out there who has ever been ill with no answers. Without health we have no life.

I eventually discovered parasite cleansing and colon cleansing, and used herbal formulas to rid my intestines of years of junk and bugs that were weighing me down and causing my debilitating IBS. By my third round of parasite cleansing, I got some pretty huge worms out, and was subsequently rid of the painful cystic acne on my back. I learned that your upper back is a reflection of the small intestine, so it made perfect sense that worms and waste clogging up that area would result in the waste getting expelled by my skin as a last resort. I learned that your intestines govern the health of your entire body, and that everyone is suffering from unwanted critters to some degree because of our modern polluted world and mineral deficiencies!

I posted about my experience with parasite cleansing and the response was incredible. I started to make my own herbal parasites by hand to accommodate the huge interest that had developed from people with stories and digestive troubles just like mine. It would take us an entire month to make just 400 cleanses, and they would sell out faster and faster every single time. When it sold out the last time in just 45 minutes, I knew we hand to expand. The feedback we were getting made my heart swell with happiness and I was so excited to reach more people with my products and mission.

We started an IndieGogo campaign to raise funds for larger scale production, and I was amazed at the support and interest we received. We raised over $250K and I can’t tell you how many photos of critters I’ve received from people who are getting their energy back! This is what I was put here to do, and it means the world to me to be able to bring the world a product and information that I believe in.

What started as a small blog turned into the company of my dreams where I get to share important health information and research with others daily. And what started as a series of negative experiences in my life, turned into beautiful lessons that have served to benefit others. Everything has happened for a reason and I don’t regret a single moment of the struggles I had to endure to get here. I hope to continue sharing tips and solutions on how to live your healthiest life as long as I’m on this earth, and I look forward to learning from you guys, as I do every single day. Thank you for reading.

This is awesome stuff! Due to health and skin issues, I have recently become extremely interested in “organic living.” How did you get to the point where you were able to create a product? Did you work with a team to do this, and how were you able to find a team to work with you on this? I am lost on what kind of jobs there are that will allow me to teach organic living to other people or even create products. Thanks!

Hi Olivia, I’ve recently come across your youtube video on acne, and now I’m hooked on all the information you have to give. I’m 32 years old with hypothyroidism and depresssion, i’m struggling with my hormones and my chi is definitely very stuck. I’ve been back and forth to the doctor’s recently because i’m getting acne on my jaw and neck but my bloods are normal apparently, but after watching your videos I realise that my chi is very stuck, I’ve purchased lysiene and have started taking them. There was a time in my mid 20’s when I was so healthy and glowing and that’s when I never ate meat or dairy, i used to do yoga and go to the gym, but that has slowly deteriorated over the years, and now I’ve hit rock bottom, I’m eating all the wrong things and going out too much, or sit on the couch watching tv eating chocolate. I’m on anti-depressents and recieving counselling, but my buzz is gone. The thought of doing what you do get’s me excited and hopeful though which is what I need, I’ve been stuck for so long that now my home is cluttered and messy, and I don’t know where to start, so my answer is always to ignore it and leave it for another day. When i do tidy the house (if i have company), clutter is thrown in the spare room or cupboards etc, so it’s always in the back of my mind, tension and negative energy is always around. I just want to be at peace with life and myself and feel healthy without the medicating, but I’m so stuck in this way of life, I don’t know how to get out, it’s driving me crazy and I also think it’s affecting my relationships with my fiancé and friends and family. Thank you for your inspiration.

Hey Organic Olivia! I’ve been telling all my friends about you. I’ve been taking lysine all this week and just started my parasite cleanse two days ago! God has blessed me through you. I’m 28, have had bad acne since 11 and have been on doxycycline over the last three years due to western medicine. If it wasn’t for my instinct telling me to not take doxycycline when first recommended at 18, I would have been on it for 10 YEARS!;( Finally at 24 was so sick of acne I took there advice. Bad idea! I actually got photosynthesis reaction, which is not listed in the side affects on prescription, had to do deep research. I now have age spots around my eyes! That’s ok though. I’ve been on this new journey to health and truth. Thank you for sharing with me the lysine and parasite cleanse. Through a lot of research, change in diet, sweating, and many other things I’m doing (too long to list) my skin is looking amazing. God is going to clear my skin and show me the truth! I am so blessed. Thank you Olivia for sharing your knowledge. Be blessed as you already truly are! With Love, Brigitte

Hi Oli! (Sorry we’re bffs in my head so we’re on a nickname basis 😉 ) I just want to say, first and foremost that we need more people like you in this world. Your drive and dedication on educating people to healthier medical alternatives is awesome. It’s astounding that so many people are receptive to your story and advice…it makes me hopeful of the worlds future to healthy/homeopathic cures as opposed to stuffing ourselves with toxic medicines and foods. You are changing the world, girl! I had a very similar upbringing as far as food/family goes. I’m first generation American so when my parents moved to the states, they did not know what kind of toxic things are in our foods. Being from Africa (ethiopia) they were used to homegrown natural foods. I had my “aha moment” about 2-3 years ago while doing a 2 month fast that most Orthodox religions do. I can’t say that I’m religious but I am spiritual….I’m an empath (which I think you are as well…I can feel it in your spirit) and I could was feeling so toxic….physically, emotionally, and spiritually so I thought doing this fast would inspire me in some sort of way. The fast consists of not eating any animal products (besides seafood) for 2 months until Easter. So no dairy, eggs, meat, etc. I’m not sure if you know this, but the Orthodox religion fasts the most of any religion….roughly 250 days out of the year. They’re an extremely spiritual religion and a lot of people believe that’s where Christianity began so they take their fast seriously lol. I suffered from intense sinus issues, fatigue, anxiety, weight issues, to name a few. When I did the fast it changed my life and perspective/relationship with food. I instantly felt a difference in my physical and spiritual body. Fast fast forward to now, I’m 60 lbs lighter and feel great. Although my anxiety/depression still gets me that’s something I’m working on daily. I want to help people like you. I want people to know that these beautiful plants are grown on our earth are hear to help and nourish us. I want to start to study eastern medicine/ways but I have no clue where to start. I know in your early days, you had a close friend that would help you with learning/understanding the eastern ways so I just wanted to ask you or hear where I should start? Should I go to a school? Should I start at an apprenticeship? Both? I would love both of your insight or take on how I should proceed if you can of course. I also wanted to just plant this in your head….you should take a long trip to Ethiopia. You would absolutely LOVE it there….people, food, spirits, culture, EVERYTHING! I honestly know you would absolutely love it. Keep doing what you do girl, you’re a true gem on this earth. Love ya mean it! Sara

Hi Olivia! I have been following your Instagram account for years now and it is informational as well as inspiring. Your story truly touched my heart! I am 15 and have been eating organic healthy foods, living a healthy life, and researching what I do not know about heath, food, and the world. Sometimes it has been hard to live healthy In high school when everyone thinks a healthy life is “weird”. I just wanted to let you know that you have been an amazing role model for me to inspire to!

Olivia, you are my new favorite person. What an amazing story! I found you on youtube looking for which essential oils help acne and got SO MUCH MORE. You are definitely a beautiful and old soul, wise beyond your years. I could listen to you talk all day. You are so real and honest, it’s no wonder you’re seeing such success. I truly believe in food as a healing power. I get sidetracked from a good diet because anxiety keeps me housebound sometimes. (When you mentioned antidepressant ‘brain zaps’ I FREAKED out! ) I’ve subscribed to your vlog, and am a forever fan. I know that you’ll remind me to stay motivated. Thank you so much for finding your calling and being such an inspiration. Keep it coming, you’re changing the world!

Hi, Olivia! I’m Elle from the Philippines. I came across your profile on Instagram. I like how you educate people, like me, about the root causes of illnesses. I am inspired by how you were able to get rid of all your acne. I will try to improve on my diet since I realized on your blogs, posts, and videos that one of the root causes of acnes are the kind of food we take. YOU ARE INDEED BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT! GOD BLESS!

Hi there Olivia, Thanks for posting on Facebook, where you will be helping all us moms! It broke my heart to read about your struggles while you were right in front of me as a child. You never complained. ….You are just one tough cookie, and I am so proud of you. I bought your parasite cleanse and hope to continue following you. One is never too old to learn and admit to something new. I had felt awful this past year and a half and woke up May 1st determined to make a complete health change. I told Brian “It’s the very merry month of me” ha. Your post came at a perfect time. I am sharing your posts wherever I can. keep up the good work! Love you. Janice

Oliviaaaa, have you ever researched veganism ? Something to consider. You should definitely educate yourself on the topic since you are so conscious about what you put into your body and how the food industry plays games. I’m sure you might appreciate how veganism contributes to life and what it has to offer. Anyone who reads this should probably educate themselves on it also.

I have an article on here titled “My Experience On a Vegan Diet & Why I’m an Omnivore.” I definitely am a HUGE believer in bioindividuality and that every single person has a different constitution, body type, ancestry, blood type, and therefore different needs. I feel so much better on a diet rich in cooked greens and root vegetables, with a tiny bit of organic raw grass-fed butter & organic grass-fed meat or wild fish, both which I get from a local Amish farm. So glad you found the diet that works for you, and glad I did too! Lots of love xx

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE WOMAN YOU ARE. I was seeking for truth, and here it is. I found solace and solutions through your struggles, and I am so glad I have found you. People like you, restores my faith in humanity. I have been a weak child. Be it immunity or emotionally, I had been weak since I was a kid. And I am glad I have found those answers through you. I have been allergic to foods and other stuff all my life, and honestly, you have given me the sole motivation to move along in the direction that makes most sense to me. Lately diagnosed with Asthmatic Bronchitis. I was so upset, cuz the injected steroids to recover my troubled breathing. Still seeking my truth and answers to all my problems, hidden and apparent. And your struggles assure me I will find them all one day. Thank you for being the motivation all along. My year old son, is another hope I live by with everyday and hope to resolve my health issues to give him the version of realness of life. Keep inspiring. Love and prayers, Mina (Pakistan)

Hi Olivia, May I ask what did you decided to major in? I am currently in college and ever since i was little i was always into fashion and beauty so i decided to major in that. ironically, i’ve spent a year or so discovering this whole new world of health (eating organic food, the alternative medicine, meditation, my spirituality etc) and realized just like beauty i also i have a passion for this but this is deeper. i want to research, learn ,educate myself, and open my mind to also help people. I want to change my major but I am not sure what route should i take from here on. Any advice? Any recommendations? i feel so stuck at this point in my life i don’t know what to do 🙁 thank you

Hi Olivia! I am thankful that I was referred to your page by a friend of mine. I used to have really bad migraines, actually the last one was sometime at the beginning of this year. The migraine will start by me seeing blurry and will happen anywhere at anytime. And when I saw blurry I knew right away that was the sign of a really bad headache coming, right away I will have to go to a secluded place and shut all the blinds off and see dark only, no light! After that I will throw up until there was nothing more left in me to throw up. The headaches will cause blurry vision and nausea.. they will happen at work…driving etc! I also want to add to this that when I was 6 or 7 years old a worm came out, painlessly, it was about 14 inches, my mother right away started a detox with pills and it never happened to me again ( this happened in Colombia) and now that I am in the US the headaches started and hormonal acne! The doctors will say that after a woman gives birth her body changes… but i refuse to believe it has changed for the worse. I am now 26 years old, and this is the first year where i started eating healthy, but yet I cannot see the full effects of my juicing, i have been juicing for two weeks now and more acne seems to becoming out, i believe is because of the detox. I have always been pretty healthy except for those killer headaches and the ACNE. I am very determined to kill this monster of acne and believe Gods original plan for me is to be 100% healed. Some days are better than others.. but I am becoming stronger in this fight. My mind has to know I am healed, therefore I think it, visualize myself healed, it is really mind over matter! Proverbs 23:7 ..and of course you also have to change everything to see results. The changes start from within you! as you say.

Hi I’m dealing with bad skin and I’ve done everything to help and I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I’ve been following your blog for a year or more.

Hi Olivia, After my daughter was diagnosed with pinworm, we were prescribed medication for the whole family which prompted me to research the horrid things. I read alot and I came across your website – it has really opened my eyes and provides answers to a long line of undiagnosed health conditions for myself too. I would like to order the kit for my whole family, my children are aged 5 years, 2 years and 8 months – what are your thoughts on some sort of cleansing for them please? We are now going organic too, can you recommend any juice recipes to cleanse my liver please? Thank you so much!!!

I was doing some research on citric acid and GMO. Have you considered writing a blog post on citric acid. I found this information on nogmo4michigan.org/hidden_gmo_exposed_citric_acid. Now, we are seeing the use of genetically modified Aspergillus niger employed to obtain higher yields. Besides the genetically modified mold being used, the carbohydrate “food” that the mold metabolizes is often genetically modified corn. Big Food takes this mold and genetically modifies it and then grows it on genetically modified corn. Most citric acid is produced from corn in this manner. Manufacturers do not always take out the protein which can be hydrolyzed and create MSG, a known neuro-toxin that kills brain cells. NOT LEMONS. You are probably getting two sources of genetically modified foods introduced that possibly create MSG in the process. I just thought I would share. Thank you for all you do. Kimberly

Hi Olivia! Congrats on your graduation this year and thank you for constantly updating everyone on the truth about our food, our system and dropping crucial knowledge about our health and bodies. I am a freshman in college studying to become an herbalist toward the end of my (seems to be) lengthy college career. It took me awhile because I’m not really sure that I agree with our educational system here in the states. I have a few questions about classes you took in school in order to get where you are today? I’ve been self teaching and doing tons of research about numerous things for a few years now and still to this day, but ultimately I want one day to either have my BS in Herbal Sciences or possibly my Associates Degree in Naturopathy. If you could give me a few tips about getting through school, or share your journey, I feel like it would help me a lot. I look to you for a lot and I appreciate once again the knowledge that you share. Thank you, Jamaica

You are perfect and inspiring! It’s so ridiculous that health and nutrition DON’T go hand in hand in society today 🙁

Hello Olivia, I work with your uncle at CGPS. He was telling me about your story and the company you started and I couldn’t help but want to invite you to a food event we do in October in honor of national Food Day. I would love to chat with you about this opportunity as we have usually about 350 – 500 people attend our event. We try to invite only local, healthy restaurants and vendors and all of the proceeds from our event go towards our children’s farmer’s market and other local charities. Please feel free to email me to chat. I think for a growing business, this would be a great way to introduce yourself to our community. Thank you, Stephanie

Thank you for your positivity. You’ve given me hope tonight to keep searching for my health. I have had bad experiences with Western Medicine and the medicating everything model. It has gotten me sicker. Julie

Hi Olivia, First of all I would like to say that ur an inspiration to many! Good on you and thanks for sharing. I hope people would wake up, and I agree with the statement of corruption with regards to the pharmaceutical marphia. I have made changes at home in terms of GMO products etc. Please help me or guide me on the following!! I am concerned that the conventional foods don’t have the nutrients or natural healing powers to our bodies due to the toxins being sprayed on them. Do u only eat organic food including fruits and vege? If so where do u get it from? Does everything have to be organic? What sort of bread do u eat? I actually don’t have fb as I don’t have the time with three children. Please add me to what ever you can without the need of social media as I don’t have it. Thanks Fatima

Hey Fatima! Thank you so very much for your comment and kind words. I eat 98% of my food organic, and the other 2% is the non-organic mango or avocado here and there or a snack that is certified non-gmo, but not completely organic. I buy everything from my local farmer’s market May through November, and during the cold months I go to Trader Joe’s because their organic prices are INCREDIBLE! I don’t eat bread unless I’m at an organic restaurant having a treat meal, however my boyfriend frequently eats organic Ezekiel bread. Lots of love! xx

I am interested in learning more about healing my body through Chinese Medicine. A lot of what you mentioned here mirrors my own life and health struggles. Is there a trusted website you recommend I can purchase Chinese Herbs/ medicine from? Thanks so much for sharing your discoveries with us all!

Hello Olivia, I am a senior at Syracuse University and a intern for the NY State Assembly. I am currently producing research around GMO and biotechnology. I would love to ask you a few interview style questions and maybe you direct me to a few sites I have not stumbled across. Thanks!

Sure shoot me an email via the contact form under my photo! And also, check this out if you haven’t seen it. It’s a 300 page PDF so quite lengthy but worth every minute you can spend wading through it: http://responsibletechnology.org/GMO-Myths-and-Truths-edition2.pdf

Olivia, You are very inspirational, and I’m so glad I came across your work and site! Your insight, honesty, and self-reflection at such a young age is quite amazing. I too, have experienced chronic health issues that most doctors were clueless to for many years, and have finally started healing myself through alternative means. Thank you for sharing your story, “spreading the love,” and encouraging others to take control of their lives and health through research, education and practice…because, yes, our mainstream system has failed us in many ways, and we need to continue to tell our stories to right this societal wrong!

Hi Olivia! Thank you so much for your story. I have been having hormone troubles and infertility for about 3 years now. I started a parasite cleanse last week and it turns out I was breeding parasites! I am going to keep cleansing for the next 2 months and then later TTC again. It is so hard to get people to understand how the body works when they trust conventional medicine. It is only when it fails you, which unfortunately means you are really sick, that you start looking to other methods. The back part of my knee went numb last summer and I thought it could be my back, but now that I have been cleansing, the feeling is back completely. Another one of my friends has a numb shin bone and she doesn’t even have the back problems that I have. Do you think it could be parasites?

Olivia. 1st off I LOVE you. So proud of you sis. Seriously. Very inspiring. I want to know your thoughts (if any) on BV. It’s a bacteria infection that plages young women after taking antibiotics good lactic acid is depleted and very hard to gain back. Wish it was a cure but there is only temp fix available over the counter or by a doctor. Would love to hear back on how to cure this aliment.

Where is your Chinese herbalist?

Hi Olivia, Just wanted to say that I am a fellow natural healer like yourself. I suppose what I mean by that is, I’m all about natural healing and staying away from pharmaceuticals. I also believe that God gave us everything on this earth that we need to thrive. It has been a long journey for me and I am still on it. I know that I am really still at the beginning of my journey. A lot of the addictions we have to things are because of what we were exposed to throughout life and what is seems to be the “norm” in western society. Anyway, just wanted to say that I have looked into Ayurveda and other eastern medicines and I feel like they work and make so much more sense that traditional meds. I will continue to check back on your blog to stay updated. I also notice we follow some of the same sites. I referred my best friend to you as well and she is psyched to have all of the information at her finger tips. Unfortunately it seems when I share these same views with friends and family they are skeptical, but referring her to your blog did the trick. So alls well that ends well :o) Maybe I should start a blog so that they take me serious 😉 Take care and Cheers to health and healing!

Hi I follow you on instagram and your post are very informative and interesting.. I have researched certain things you speak bout but it gets so confusing cause there are so many pages that are for it and so many are against it for example I researched coconut oil which my brother in law loves to use to cook with but I found so many pages that say there is no health benefit and others that say it is.. Anyway I was wandering if you had any knowledge on sleep apnea.. My 6 year old has it.. she was diagnosed at age 3 I was offered surgery but I did not want to put her thru that and feel that there has to be something else that we can do. If you can guide me in the right direction I would so appreciate it
