This is my story, the story of a every day French / Croatian woman, young and fearless working in finance. However this all changed in one day. A few years ago when I was struggling with chronic fatigue for years without any particular symptoms, I had ended up with ovarian cancer before I reached the age of 30.
During that time I was a eating anything that sounded good and living my life as if in a permanent race. Travelling and working a lot, sleeping, and exercising very little... Until one day the trigger came along that forced me to change my lifestyle.
I would really love to be able to say that the trigger was a health analysis, the council of someone I love, but the truth is that it was not that epic. The truth is we can be really sick but as long as it is invisible or coverable we do not really care. But when it reaches the point where self image is modified, and life is threatened without any choice, then we may be willing to do anything to change.
So what was it? Well I lost my hair, I actually used to have brilliant long thick straight hair, that was becoming slowly thinner and shorter through the years but still very nice. Until the moment that I was losing so much hair that I had bald patches and had to start wearing wigs. That was the catalyst, on that day I did not know what I was going to do but I was ready to do anything.
I went to the doctor and had a check up to discover a tumor the size of an apricot on my right ovary. What this made me realise from that day onwards, was that this type of diagnosis was not only happening to others but was happening to people who actually thought they were living a healthy lifestyle.
So I refused to see any other doctors because I did not want to be another number on a hospital list. I was so tired that the only thing I could do was sleep and read .
Out of everything I read, I found one approach which seemed to be more logical than any others. An approach that instead of imposing laws, supplements and beliefs, was starting at the beginning and asking ‘what is the human body & how does it function?’. This knowledge was the foundation of healing from my experience. To understand where I was at and where I needed to go.
Eight years ago, I went to the health institute in Florida, USA that I had been reading about to educate myself about the human race and became a certified Naturopath. After a few weeks I was healed, after a year I was starting to help others heal. This is how it all starts if you want to be one of the shareholders of truth get in touch with me. I will help you to help yourself.
"Dearest Anna, There is an English saying, "Ignorance is bliss" well as that may be in lots of situations, I can honestly say its not the case for me. Your knowledge of the body’s requirements is phenomenal. When I first met you I was overweight, lethargic and felt constantly bloated. I'm now 10 kilos lighter have more energy and feel so much better within myself. You re-educated me and showed me how to eat healthy alternatives, killing that sugar fix we all crave from time to time. Thank you so much for you advice."
"I can never be thankful for enough for all that you did for me, you are a real gift from heaven. An excellent naturopath with amazing skills; professional, trustworthy, but also a reliable friend. Thoughtful and compassionate. A glimmer of hope that has illuminated my path, which was blackened by the disease, the fear and the confusion. You brought me onto the right path, the one of healing and serenity. You are the best."
"My encounter with Anna was a true rebirth of my life but more than that, it was a rebirth of me, and my body. You were always here to support me when I wanted to give up. You knew how to guide me, direct me, but more than that you taught me how to listen to my body, love it and give it the best care through amazing food and herbs that put me back on track by the grace of god. The knowledge you have about the human body are just infinite, I am so impressed. To any question, you have an immediate and rational answer. Anna, you are part of health for ever, I am infinitely thankful for that. I wish the best for you in the same way that you give to others with so much love and above all patience, because I admit that I was not an easy going person."
"There are some encounters that are truly unforgettable, that engrave into your brain, like the joyful moments in our memory. Believe me Anna, my encounter with you was one of the most magical in my whole life, I will never forget it. The therapeutic cures and other advice you gave me about nutrition, have changed me in a shocking & emotional way & have totally converted my daily life, my vision of food and my own perspective toward my disease. I have seen so many improvements, and what you offer is really persuasive. Keep being who you are, and may god help us to change to what you became; a being dedicated to the service of others in its most professional & sincere way. Thank you wish you the best for your future!"
