1) When did you first realize that it’s important to prioritize your health?
When I lost my career to a broken back and failed surgery, then was diagnosed with stage four cancer and given the prognosis that survival was impossible, it was like a major wakeup call from the universe. I not only realized that I had to prioritize my health, which I thought I had been doing by relying upon western medicine, but that I had to TAKE CHARGE, step out of the box, exert devoted and consistent effort, and implement massive changes in all aspects of my life.
