A quick note: this is not a lifestyle blog, and I’m not creating any kind of personal brand. This is a resting place for some of the information and education I’ve gathered on my own long health journey. I leave it here, like a message tucked into a bus seat, or the jacket of a book, in the hopes it will find its way to the right person.

I understand deeply what it feels like to think your body has turned on itself. I understand viscerally the feeling of panic as your body attacks everything around it -- even its own tissue.

I hope the information here serves you. Please feel free to post comments. I will always respond. Or to email me directly if you have more pressing concerns at ivesnaturalhealth@gmail.com

I work with clients from Canada and the U.S. one-on-one via Skype, and in person in Nelson, BC.
