When I first met Jimmy Rotello, my spiritual health guru, at a Starbucks in LA, I had no idea that my health was about to change for the better. At the time, I experienced severe brain-fog and moodiness. Being overweight and spiritually disconnected, I was aware of a sugar addiction which suddenly hit critical mass. I bumped into Jimmy by accident, and we began talking.
I learned that Jimmy held a diploma in oriental medicine, and was certified in environmental illness and natural medicine. Curious, I asked him how he became involved in the field.
“I started in the parking lot business. Health, to me at that time, was McDonald’s and a salad once or twice a week. Financially, I was doing really well, until my wife became severely ill. She began to fall apart physically, reacting allergically to everything, and would go into convulsions when she inhaled gas fumes. So naturally, we went to doctor after doctor, who each ran a multitude of tests – and they all said that the results came back negative. Their diagnosis was that it must be in her head. We went bankrupt from all the medical expenses, until I found a naturopath who, in one visit, discovered she had a severe case of lead poisoning and put her on a regimen of herbs, vitamins and minerals. My wife made a dramatic recovery. I sold my business, went back to school, and dedicated my life to healing people in a natural way.”
I was so blown away, I immediately made an appointment. I adhered to a two-month regimen of natural herbs, vitamins, minerals and cleanses. I was impressed with my dramatic change. I felt focused, clear-headed, emotionally balanced, and energetic. I also felt far more spiritually connected, and my sugar addiction went from about 90 percent to three or four! But what really spurred my transformation was Jimmy’s guidance, and his sincere desire to see me happy, healthy, and whole.
He taught me the most important aspect of health: preventative medicine. All illnesses are created from imbalance, usually in the form of blocked energy. When these blocks occur in one cluster, it causes our remaining energy to be diverted into a pattern of trying to just maintain a sense of equilibrium. When this happens, it begins to affect all areas of our lives: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We suffer from low energy and chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression and a whole host of physical ailments which can start in childhood.
When the physical body is cleansed and balanced through natural means, it functions at optimum capacity, giving us highly attuned mental and emotional clarity. This dramatically increases our energetic vibrations, enabling our greatest potential and opportunity for spiritual ascension and transformation.
