Fitness Retreats Oct 12th @ Red Poppy Highland, Mi
My passion for exercise, health & wellness has been a lifelong journey. Growing up sports were my reason for exercise. However after many years of intense training, I began to suffer a lot of injuries. This lead me down a very different path of exercise after college. With much more of a focus on building a solid foundation through mobility & balance exercises I have been able to not only get myself out of discomfort & joint pain but also & MORE IMPORTANTLY my clients have also had the same benefits!
I have been a Personal Trainer for 4 years, working with a variety of clientele in a variety of environments. I have worked with Weight Loss Clients / General Fitness / Athletes (High School & College) / 65y/o+ / Pain Management / Rehab / Physical Therapy Experience. I use a variety of exercises that help to enhance not only how well you can exercise, but also perform everyday activities with greater ease. Whether walking up a flight of stairs, carrying groceries, yard work - these activities DO NOT have to be so much effort & leaving you sore, tight or possibly in pain. I offer a different approach to exercise, starting with the most basic form of movement you do (walking) we began to reset your body so that every step you take feels stronger!
What Type of Workouts will you be doing?
A variety of exercises is best, but what is more important is what your intentions are with the exercise. If it is to have an intense workout then GO HARD. If you need to recover: THEN RECOVER. Exercise is one of the few things in life most people feel needs to be rushed & pushed to the limits of exhaustion

Introduction to Homeopathy
for Home Use
This is a series of blog posts, teaching about various natural health solutions to use as your first line of defense to heal the body. It is my goal to teach and empower people to choose safe options and to also know that when it is a true medical emergency, to seek professional help from their doctor.
For almost 20 years now, I have been using homeopathy as my first go-to as a first line of defense which has helped keep me free from needing medical intervention during that entire time.
WHAT IS HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathy is a form of medicine that was founded over two hundred years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a medical doctor in Germany during the late 1700s. It is based on the principle of similars, of “like cures like”. It treats the whole person rather than just the disease, by recognizing the body, mind, and spirit of the person. It is the totality that makes homeopathy a truly holistic medical therapy. The medicines are used to stimulate the person to heal themselves by stimulating their own vital force to do the healing.
ARE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES SAFE FOR SELF MEDICATION?
Homeopathic remedies are made from plant, animal or mineral sources so they use all-natural ingredients. Only very small quantities, diluted many times, of these ingredients, are needed to stimulate the body's sensitive defense mechanism. For home care, they are generally administered in the smallest possible doses to create a healing, and yet will cause no harm. These remedies are commonly found in most health food stores. (NOTE: Arnica, the #1 remedy used for bruising and injuries, should be avoided if a person is on blood thinners.)
HOW DOES HOMEOPATHY WORK?
Example: Your child eats the berries of a deadly nightshade plant. He becomes very ill and looks as if he has scarlet fever with all the spots, fever and delirium. As a matter of fact, had you not seen him eat the berries yourself, you would have assumed he actually had scarlet fever. This is the principle of homeopathy. Like cures like. They give a minute dose of the poison In the form of homeopathic Belladonna, to cure the raging illness of scarlet fever, in the form of homeopathic Belladonna. The small dose given, is safely used to reverse the symptoms.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS TO HOMEOPATHY?
Homeopathic remedies are remarkably free of any negative side effects and are among the safest preparations known to medical science. In fact, I like to say that the remedies have side benefits because quite often they help with additional symptoms that the client may be experiencing because most remedies help to heal multiple symptoms. If you take the wrong remedy, it just doesn't work and you need to seek out another remedy for the problem. NOTE: for serious conditions or medical emergencies, it is recommended that you consult with a skilled homeopath or your family doctor first.
IS HOMEOPATHY EASY TO LEARN FOR HOME USE?
Absolutely! But, some study is necessary to learn how to use it. Dr. Garth Boericke, MD called homeopathy “the only system where using drugs can be put into the hands of intelligent laypersons without risk and with a reasonable assurance of success.” An introductory class to Homeopathy is helpful for the layperson is helpful, because there is a lot to learn, but when used properly, it works easy and fast. There are some great books available for the layperson to use as a reference.
The two I recommend and use most myself are The Family Guide to Homeopathy by Dr. Andrew Lockie and Homeopathic Medicine At Home by Dr. Maesimund B. Panos, MD and Jane Heimlich. Both of these reference books recommend the most common of homeopathic remedies used for everyday ailments and minor injuries.
For people who prefer more hands-on information, there are two options to learn more about how to use Homeopathy. I offer an Introductory Class on Homeopathy for beginners on the top 12 Homeopathic Remedies to have in your medicine cabinet This class is about two hours long.
For students who want more information beyond that, there is also a 12 Lesson Course available, which is taught in a classroom setting or can be done as a home study course. There is much more information and homework assignments to help the student understand how the remedies work, tips on helping determine the right remedy, and many other helpful pieces of information on why, how and when to use Homeopathy.
For more information on either the Introductory Class or the Study Course, please contact me at DrKathyNaturalRemedies@gmail.com

Just what is a Wealthy Mind?
What exactly is a Wealthy Mind? A few years ago, (around 2007,) when the economy was going downhill, I was introduced to a book written by T. Harv Eker called “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.” It taught how to Master the “Inner Game of Wealth.” That caught my attention and as I began reading it, I could relate to the author as he told his story of struggling financially as a young man.
In the first part of the book, Eker writes about our Money Blueprints. It's basically what and how we were taught about money in our homes, as kids growing up. That's when I realized I'm in the right place. The phrase about money that I remembered most from my Mom was; “Wish in one hand and spit in the other, and see which one gets filled first.” Not a good thought!
However, she did teach my brother and me about money by creating a little box with 4 divisions in it. We were to divide our weekly allowance into the 4 categories. Which at that time was 50 cents. Ten cents for the church. Ten cents for my Bluebird dues (or Cub Scouts,) Ten cents for savings. And 20 cents to spend. (Fortunately, there was a penny candy store close by and even a candy bar was only a nickel back then.)
Ecker made a lot of sense to me, including how people with money tend to think differently and act differently than poor or even middle-class people. Maybe it was just that I never cared about being “rich” because people had a lot of negative things to say about “those rich people.” I certainly never thought I could attain that, or was guided in that direction. Because my parents didn’t know either.
In “The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” Ecker explains 17 different ways that Rich People think and act differently from Poor and Middle-class people. It all made a lot of sense to me and I began to realize that things didn't have to be the way they always were. A few months later, I took a trip to Toronto to attended a “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” weekend seminar. It was amazing to be in the energy of the other people in the room and the trainers were phenomenal.
At one point, I asked one of the workers “how would I find out how to bring this seminar to Detroit?” I knew the people back home were certainly in need of this information as we had, at that time, one of the largest home foreclosure markets in the country. If you know how synchronicity works, then you will understand what happened next. The guy said; “Oh, these people over here were just asking about that too. Here let me introduce you to them.” This is when I met a husband and wife team, also from the Detroit area, who had the same idea. I joined forces with them and others, which they knew, and we did bring the seminar to Detroit a few years in a row.
My introduction to this information led to Robert Kiyosaki's series of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” books and others. All these ideas continued to feed my brain full of possibilities and more productive ways of thinking and doing things. Hopefully, it has helped me to direct my own children and grandchildren in a better direction too.
As T. Harv Eker says: “The Roots Create the Fruits” In saying this, he's comparing us to a tree, which represents the tree of life. Based on how the tree is nourished and fed, the tree will eventually bear fruits. In life, he says: “our fruits are called our results.” He goes on to explain; “it's the seeds and the roots that create those fruits.” It's a process of learning and education over time. It's what's happening below the ground that creates the final result of the fruit. And as Ecker says; “If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots.” To change the visible, you first need to change what lies below the surface (and invisible). So, change your thinking! Sometimes that’s easier said than done. I have found it is a process of learning and improving over time.
Robert Kiyosaki says; “This information needs to be taught in our schools today.” And, I couldn't agree more. Through the years, I've learned a much better way of looking at the money then how I was taught, (and realizing that my parents were not taught either, because people just didn’t know. It's all part of the journey as we all strive to improve our lives and those of our loved ones. Rather than give my kids everything they want, I'd much rather teach and empower them to do better for themselves. Creating a Wealthy Mind is where it all begins.
