During Christal’s high school years she struggled with a period of depression that affected her education, health, and family life. She tried various antidepressant medications which did very little to help. The inability to shift out of the depressive state made her feel weakened, fearful, and alone. She resolved to do anything she could to strengthen her body and mind as naturally as possible, taking back her power she sought out many natural forms of therapy such as meditation, exercise, proper nutrition, and simply doing things that brought joy and peace to her life. She discovered first hand the power of the mind-body connection and the amazing ability the body has to heal itself given the right support.
