RENATA FILIACI, MSHW HOLISTIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER

HEALTH AND WELLNESS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME. I RECEIVED MY MASTERS OF SCIENCE IN HEALTH AND WELLNESS TO GIVE BACK THE KNOWLEDGE I OBTAINED TO HELP PEOPLE MAINTAIN, MANAGE, AND DIMINISH ILLNESS. I WANT PEOPLE TO SEE A DIFFERENT SIDE TO MEDICINE BY USING COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE PROTOCOLS SPECIFICALLY GEARED TOWARDS THEIR AILMENTS, CONDITIONS, AND SYMPTOMS. BY RESTORING THE MIND, BODY, AND SOUL, WE CAN GAIN A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON SICKNESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE.

I AM ALSO CURRENTLY A TRAINED DOULA (ALMOST CERTIFIED THROUGH DONA) IN LABOR AND BIRTH AND POSTPARTUM. I BELIEVE BIRTHING PERSONS AND PARTNERS COULD HAVE A SUCCESSFUL FOUR TRIMESTERS (1-3 AND POSTPARTUM BEING THE 4TH) WITH A DOULA EDUCATING AND GUIDING THEM THROUGH THIS NEW PART OF LIFE WITH ALTERNATIVE SPECIALTIES SUCH AS MEDITATION, PROPER NUTRITION, SOUND AND ART THERAPY, BIRTH PLANNING, ACUPRESSURE, AND RESOURCING.

I HAVE A FONDNESS FOR HERBAL MEDICINE AND NUTRITION AS WELL AS INCORPORATING MUSHROOMS AND CANNABIS INTO DAILY LIVING. IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE CHEMICAL MAKEUP AND BIOACTIVE COMPOUNDS OF CANNABIS SATIVA AS A WAY OF HEALING. I ALSO CREATE CANNABIS INFUSIONS PAIRED WITH A HEALTHY MEAL DUE TO THE CANNABIS STRAIN’S TERPENE PROFILE. TERPENES GIVE FRAGRANCE AND FLAVOR AND CAN ADD A DELECTABLE TASTE TO YOUR FAVORITE MEAL.

TOGETHER, WE CAN WORK ON DETERMINING THE SAFEST REGIMEN POSSIBLE TO GUIDE YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY TO POSITIVE HEALTH!
