"This program gave me a new (food) life, and better health. I'm proud of myself with respect to food for the first time in a very long time. Thanks to Anita, my pants are too big for me now! I lost an inch on the waist and hips, eating incredibly delicious food.
Before enrolling in the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I had dessert most nights of the week. I was a corn-bread connoisseur. My doctor was alarmed at my high cholesterol and triglyceride levels, along with blood sugar levels. I felt like the world was coming down on me, and that my age was catching up with me. I felt depressed and resentful that I would need to make a change.
After completing the "Take Control of Your Blood Sugar" program, I feel like I have control. I don't feel resentful about what's required to be healthier it in the least. I eat incredibly delicious food, and yes, sometimes I'd rather not take the time to prepare it. But I do, nine times out of ten - nobody's perfect. Now my clothes are too big, and my doctor is delighted with my blood tests. I didn't think I could do it, I thought it would be too big of a life change, but Anita showed me how and made it fun. I am her biggest fan" L.H. June, 2013

Healing Ancestral Wounds through the Energy Field
Family Constellations vividly demonstrates the profound impact of our families and ancestors. Hidden family events and dynamics from past generations may manifest in our current lives as illness, relationship problems, addiction, financial instability, lack of purpose, depression, etc. Bert Hellinger, an international figure in the healing community, developed this method to uncover hidden dynamics which entangle us in fates not truly our own, but the legacy of others who did not resolve them in their lifetimes.
You must see and feel the constellation process in order to get it. Serving as a representative is like becoming an antenna that receives information from the family soul of the client, somehow mysteriously present in the room. Unseen forces that have held family members captive in life patterns not previously understood come to light. Constellations reveal the root causes of pain and "stuckness" and offer an opportunity for healing and transformation.
What can this mean for you? "Nearly everyone has a part of themselves that cannot find peace or come to rest. In the silence of our dreams, in our restless thoughts, in the darkest places of our hearts, the terrible experiences that befell our fathers and mothers, grandparents, aunts and uncles live on inside us.....
"We honor our ancestors' losses and soothe their pain by embracing that we are the living fruit of their sacrifices. They grieve when we suffer. They bless us when we take our lives and love well." -Dan Cohen, author, I Carry Your Heart in My Heart
How Family Constellations May Help
- Learn and witness the entanglements that may cause illness
- Reveal dynamics that are not available through our conscious awareness
- May help resolve health issues such as chronic poor health, depression, anxiety, addiction

Are you looking to connect with other holistically-minded women who are also on a journey to heal from breast cancer?
"I wanted to start a support group because I didn't feel the ones in existence would work since I wasn't going the traditional route. I wanted to find like minded people who could be a support system," said Courtney, volunteer group coordinator.
This breast cancer support group is a place to connect with other like-minded people going through various treatments for breast cancer. Find emotional support, inspiration, hope and friendship as you navigate this path together.
Bring your healing energy and help support others on a similar journey. Read more of Courtney's blog about her healing journey. Contact her at courtneyscott4@gmail. com with questions.

Read more of Courtney's Story:
I went to an acupuncturist 3 years ago, she told me I was going to get breast cancer in my right breast. I had gone to her on a friend's recommendation for my sciatic issue. I never went back to her, I thought she was crazy. Fast forward 3 years. I found a lump myself sometime last winter and thought I'd keep an eye on it. My mother has fibrocystic breasts so I thought it was nothing to worry about and there is no history of breast cancer in my family. I ended up being very sick over the spring with shingles and several bouts of anti-biotic resistant strep. Being a busy mother of 2 young boys ages 4 & 5 and having a family restaurant that I worked in and closed out 4-5 nights a week, I just thought I was run down and tired.
I finally scheduled a mammogram and was called back for several more tests & biopsy. The news I received on August 8th, a week after my oldest son started kindergarten, was devastating. Of course there was the "why me" I didn't eat that terribly, I was active and exercised..... The first person I told was my father who has been undergoing traditional treatment for metastasized prostate cancer since 1999. He gave me a book called The Anti Cancer Diet by David Shevan-Shrieber. I read it and started changing my eating habits. A week later I told my mother and she gave me Suzanne Somers book Knockout which I started reading. I scheduled, cancelled and rescheduled my lumnpechtomy several times before deciding that that would be the only medical procedure I would undergo. I started researching on the Internet to find a holistic or nontraditional doctor in the area that could help me and I came across NIHA on the Internet and made an appointment and met with Dr. Beals. I knew immediately I had made the right decision. I had a lump and 3 lymph nodes removed, it was stage 2b breast cancer. My Pet scan last month was completely clear. Anita Capizzi RN, a health counselor at NIHA, has given me great resources to stay on my healthy eating path especially over the holidays!
