Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I have personally experienced permanent weight loss using various hCG products and have spent the better part of five years researching and successfully coaching others using a homeopathic sublingual form of hCG as well as pure sublingual hCG and injectable hCG, both of which are doctor prescribed.

My motivation basically comes from losing my 39 year old mother to the ravages of obesity. My mom passed in her sleep from cardiac arrest. She was approximately 100 pounds overweight and had fought her battle with weight for the better part of 15 years.

For many years, I suffered from the ravages of excess weight, yoyo dieting and ill health myself. In 1991, I topped out at an all time high of 207 pounds. I was always hungry. Food cravings were uncontrollable. In 1997 I suffered from neuropathy (a lack of feeling) and a scary diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Then in 1998 I found a homeopathic physician to work with me. In two months I was symptom free and learned a valuable lesson about environmental toxins and the affects of food on the human body.

Fast forward to 2003 when I was turning 50. An annual physical showed I was experiencing menopausal symptoms, arthritis and excess body fat. I was headed for a diagnosis of diabetes. I was falling apart and being told by the medical community "welcome to old age". Furious by that diagnosis, I went on a search for more answers.

Thanks to a local Palm Beach County Florida medical doctor, I started an hcg program combined with hormone and adrenal saliva testing and a full-blood analysis. In less than six weeks, I was down 30 pounds and ended up feeling better than I had felt in 25 years. Eventually I became so passionate about what I was learning, that I decided to become a weight loss / hormone coach and patient motivator for the doctor that helped me. He is one of the few that really understands hormones and how best to correct imbalances, using compounded, natural organic plant-based substances. Now I share my wisdom through writing books and coaching. My goal is to help others realize permanent weight loss and vibrant health like I have.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy comes from receiving testimonials from clients that have bought my book and used the information in it successfully. My latest book, Coming Full Circle, doesn't just talk about the physical implications of weight. It also addresses the mind and soul issues that center around food and addictions and gives practical advice for making permanent changes for continued health, vitality and permanent weight loss.
