Feeling run down? Worn out? Sick and tired? Our greatest passion is helping people on their journey back to whole body health!
We’re Jarrod and Anita Roussel, your guides on your path to a happier and healthier life.
As health professionals, we’ve dedicated our lives to discovering the true paths to better living
But after years of working in “assembly line” medicine, we both grew increasingly frustrated by the western model of treating the symptoms of a problem with pills instead of spending the necessary time empowering patients to discover and prevent the root causes of the problem.
We also started to get frustrated with our own health issues and the lack of answers we found at the doctor’s office.
That’s when we decided to start blazing a path of our own.
Because we had education and experience in healthcare, we had a scientific basis for our exploration that helped us separate the truth from the fiction.
How do you know which paths lead to a healthy paradise and which ones don’t?
While there is truly no one-size-fits-all approach to health, there ARE known health principles and paths as well as new things being discovered every day. So how do you know which paths lead to a healthy paradise and which ones don’t? With the constantly growing research in the areas of nutrition, health, and wellness, as well as SO many opinions on which path you should take, how do you know who to trust?!
That’s where we come in. We put our medical expertise and life experiences to work for you! What you really need is an expert guide (and with us you get TWO!) to lead you to lasting change, through simple and enjoyable steps over time.
We combine our years of medical training and practice with knowledge from our personal journeys to health to lead you on the paths that we wish we had known about SO long ago. We will provide you with the right road maps so that you will end up where you want to be — healthy, happy, and enjoying life.
Of course there’s a time and a place for medication and procedures — but there are also many natural paths and lifestyle changes that can make a huge impact on overall health. And we want to help you craft your own easy journey to your ideal health destination.
