How Started in
Shortly after coming from Europe to live in the USA, Dr Natalia
incurred bleeding in the webs between her fingers. The dermatologist, instead of determining the root cause of this
malady, wrote a prescription for anti-biotics and a salve which she would need to use for the rest of her
Natalia did not take this recommendation at face value. This problem was non-existent in Europe so why now? With
her chess master mind she started to analyze what she had been exposed to that was different. To start, she stopped
eating all processed food. Every other day she would add one additional processed food item to her diet. When she
added bread to her diet, the webs between her fingers started to bleed. She was gluten intolerant. To verify that
the conclusion was correct, she stopped consuming bread for a week. On the 2nd day after eating bread again, the webs started to bleed again.
But why gluten intolerant? Research on topic of wheat resulted in discovering that the wheat in Europe has 14
chromosomes whereas in USA it was 21 and now 42 chromosomes. This higher chromosome count results in higher protein
content than the body is designed to handle thus different maladies come into existence.
In 2004 Dr Natalia was bitten by a tick. The conventional medicine doctor did not attach too much attention to the
red target-like rash created by the tick bite. Within a year’s time she developed a twitching arm, pain in the
shoulder and elbow, and liver problems. In addition she became sensitive to light and sound, ringing in the ears
and sensitive to fast motion. A visit to the conventional doctor resulted in proposing chemotherapy. Was told if
she did not start treatment immediately, she may not live out the year. The treatment was designed to deal with the
symptoms but not addressing the cause for the illness.
Not wanting to undergo the recommended treatment which results in possibly extending life a few years but with
pain, she researched and suspected that somehow the tick was the cause. Reading a huge amount of literature and the
association of ticks with Lyme disease, Dr Natalia started treating herself for Lyme with what she read and
what she knew from her knowledge of medicine. She is Lyme-free now and has lived well beyond the one year time
given her. Best of all –no associated side effects or pains that would have followed had she listened to the
conventional proposed “wisdom”. Once again conventional medicine had misdiagnosed by only addressing the symptoms
rather than the root cause.
It has been a prime directive of Dr Natalia’s practice to determine the root cause of health issues of her clients.
Only then will she make recommendations as to what therapies and supplements will effectively address the
Dr Natalia graduated with a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) (Traditional Naturopath) with the "highest honors"
bestowed from Clayton College of Natural Health.
Continuing her education, she also received her "Ayurvedic Health Practitioner" diploma from NHC.
