The word "FINALLY" comes to mind in announcing what is to be our area’s first Medical Center to include science, nutrition and psychology to create a holistic approach to sustainable wellness.

Vitality is committed to understanding the biochemical individuality of each person in order to provide a personalized nutrition program. 
Using traditional wisdom and modern medicine the Vitality experience could be the last stop on the patient’s journey.

The time proven approach of using food as medicine is a patient centered system that truly treats the individual and not just the symptoms. Feeding and nourishing the core has been the missing piece. Here we look at the root cause of disease and the foundation of what it means to be truly healthy. 

The goals being to feed and support innate wellbeing – the place where food meets physiology.  To create conscious healing by personalizing and managing each person’s healing process, the results will be a sustainable Vital life.

Testimonials: An Introduction to You Can Heal You

Virginia’s Story

At the young age of 23 years old, Virginia was terminally ill and given little chance of surviving the medical diagnosis of Crohn’s disease and Takayasu Ateritis. As a result, she also suffered a stroke, and became depressed and bedridden.

In her desperate search, she learned about an inexpensive method of eating very simply that promised complete regeneration of her digestive system. After a few months on the program, Ginny went from death’s door completely symptom-free. This 180-degree reversal came after seven years of suffering the painful symptoms of digestive inflammation and with multiple hospital visits. The healing experience brought her knowledge about the workings of her body and the profound connection between all digestive illnesses and the food each person has been eating. The program also restored her body’s innate flexibility, her ability to have children (she went on to have two), and gave her back flexibility and a youthful appearance.

She went on to study this profound knowledge in order to help others. And for the last 20 years she has consulted with clients all over the world, including Europe, Canada, Russia, Australia, China and much of the US. Her focus is showing people that, contrary to what the doctors and current medical education has told them, they can *completely* cure their intestinal disease—regardless of the particular disease name they’ve been given. Ginny’s expertise is in facilitating healing of the digestive track at whatever stage or condition it is in. These principles compliment medical treatment and are compatible with all religions and cultures.

Recognized as one of the leading digestive counselors in the world, she is the author of the book Controlling Crohn’s Disease the Natural Way, now in its third edition. Virginia also founded the Ki of Life Learning Center, a nonprofit residential study house in 2003. She is the head nutritional counselor at the 5-star Sha Wellness Clinic in Alicante, Spain and works there 5 months every summer. She is active in educating on the prevention of Crohn’s and Colitis. She is a regular speaker at area universities and teaches in Canada, England and Spain.

There are two choices in healing yourself. Choose either the HEALING LIFESTYLES TRAINING, a 10-day Residential Program, or GETTING STARTED, a home-based Consultation Program.
