My Healing Journey

My experience with Oklahoma Healing Arts Institute has given me hope. The expertise of the instructors at this school has really helped improve my health. I know for a fact that acupuncture will get at the root of a problem instead of just treating symptoms temporarily. I have had digestive issues for 49 years and after acupuncture they went away. What a lot of people may not understand is that acupuncture treats the whole body not just a symptom. It works on total health as a whole, you get at the root of all the problems that you are having. These are practitioners that really care about the health of their patients and are determined to try their best to find answers. I feel that I am receiving the finest help around and getting it from the very finest instructors that teach the art of acupuncture.

This school also offers other modalities of healing they are watching out for what is best for their patients. I would highly recommend and give them a FIVE STAR rating.

How to take charge of your Health!

My goal is to help people make better choices of what to eat and how to shop. Lose weight and be able to keep it off for good. Remove processed food from their diet and educate them on how harmful this food can be, because it contains GMO’s like Canola oil, same as rapeseed oil and other GMO’s. Conventional food does not have the same nutrient value as Organic. What foods to buy that must be organic, the 12 dirty dozen. The difference between good fats and bad fats. Educate on how harmful sugar is today in our society, and teach people that there are healthier choices that are sweet and not harmful. Also teach the difference in quality meat that is hormone and antibiotic free from grass fed animals. Poultry that is free range hormone and antibiotic free. The difference between Wild fish and farm raised fish and why it is important to buy wild.

Nutrition And Your Health--A look at Korean Food

Korean food comes with all kinds of side dishes. Like Burdock root that is great for the lymphatic system. Daikon radish is good for dampness in the body in Chinese medicine. Kimchi is loaded with probiotics, fermented Cucumbers have silica for strong bone health. Each one of these foods have medicinal properties.

Living in gratitude!

Living in gratitude for all the wonderful people that have been here on my healing journey. Thank you to each and every one of you for your guidance. I would not be able to do what I have done without your support. It has been a painful and frustrating journey for me over the past 17 years.

Support in the holistic community has been so different from traditional medicine that had always approached me with something that I had inherited or really never tried to figure out what was wrong with me, I would show up to my doctor’s appointments and they would get the drug book out to prescribe a medicine that would only work for about 90 days until I built a tolerance to it and it was no longer effective and my body was screaming for more and higher doses of drugs. I would end up trying to find another medicine that would work and most of the time the medicines would not work or made my symptoms worse.

I had gone through withdrawal several times from the medicines that I took all by myself not really understanding what was happening but it was really tormenting. When the drug ads started to show up on TV and I was hearing them talk about the side effects of the drugs and then the law suits of some of the medicines that I had taken were coming to light, I came to a place in my life where enough was enough and it was time for me to take responsibility into my hands and not some doctors hands. I have studied countless hours of research to find answers to what was happening to me, for every night that I would have a bad night I was on the computer researching every angle the next day.

I am completely drug free 17 months now and I am doing so much better doing things my way. I know just how bad the suffering can be and I want to be there to help guide people though there journey to find health again through nutrition and I have a network of wonderful people around me to help support people in need. Body, mind, and spirit!

My Personal Journey

My name is Denise Stamm, whether you or others are looking to improve overall health, my passion is to help people from all walks of life to heal themselves with Diet, Exercise and Emotional wellbeing with an individual customized plan with what is most appropriate for them.
Let me tell you about my journey and how I transformed my life of feeling trapped in the pharmaceutical merry go round, to one of using nutrition to resolve many of my long standing issues. It all seemed to start when I was thirty five, with my second pregnancy in the 5th month. That’s was when I developed the first symptoms or Restless Legs Syndrome and it has never gone completely away. Some women experience this, but it will go away after the pregnancy is over, unfortunately for me that never happened.
For the past seventeen years I have struggled with Restless Legs Syndrome, and to compound that for the last five years add in burning feet. After going to doctor after doctor I knew that I was not seeing any improvement, and my issues just seemed to be getting worse. After years and years of lab work, drug therapy, and countless specialist visits I knew I had to do something different.
I decided enough was enough and had a paradigm shift toward a holistic approach. I changed my diet and stopped putting chemicals into and on my body and surrounded myself with a supportive network of holistic support people, changed my nutritional behaviors, eliminated gluten from my diet.
Since starting my new holistic nutritional approach, I noticed that many of my health issue, chronic fatigue, digestive reflux, constipation, and TMJ began to disappear and some were totally eliminated. I found comfort that such simple and structured changes improved or eliminated some of the issues I had dealt with since I was a child.
I’ve become a true believer in the power of the holistic nutritional approach for health. By changing my diet and working on my emotional wellbeing has made a big difference in my life, and put me on my journey to becoming a health coach. My goal in life is to become a health coach and provide people the tools to use nutrition and the holistic approach to improve their quality of life.

The miracle of acupuncture

I first went to have Acupuncture because of the torment of Restless Legs and Burning Feet several years ago. At that time I did not find relief from Restless Legs and burning feet, I would have to wait a few more years to find relief from t...hat, but the side effect was after going often for treatments that my digestive problem that I had since birth went away which was a miracle to me. I had peristalsis’ reverse digestion and Gastro paresis delayed stomach emptying, severe constipation. I have cured these problems and within the past couple of months starting to see improvements with insomnia, Restless Legs and burning feet. It is truly a ripple effect as the waves hit the shore, the problems disappear in time.
