Founder, Your Healthy Structure
Licensed Clinical Social Worker with focus on Holistic Nutrition
Happy Friday! I am excited to introduce you to Vicki Steine with Your Healthy Structure! I also want to explain a change in our "Friday Feature" segment schedule. We have been busy at Boortz Law with juvenile court and school board hearings, so will now feature incredible youth-focused professionals on the fourth Friday of the month. We are always accepting nominations!
Today, meet Vicki Steine--a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Doctorate in Holistic Nutrition. Vicki is passionate about working with our youth, and specializes in working with children who have ADHD, bi-polar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety and depression. She is in private practice with offices all around the Atlanta area and has also worked in addiction for many years. Vicki explains that she combines “talking” therapy skills with lifestyle changes around good food, sleep, exercise, spirituality and community. She also uses “mind-body” techniques like mindfulness and visualization to help people find peace. I know you will enjoy her insight as well as her perspective in serving our youth and their families.
"Your job is to love your children so fiercely that you are willing to let them cry to keep them safe. That means setting boundaries, setting limits and not backing down. "
Registered Nurse &
Founder, Jubilee Health
Today, I'm excited to introduce Wendi Combes! A pediatric nurse with over 20 years of experience, Wendi founded Jubilee Health, a practice that helps to treat kids with health and behavioral issues with a holistic and natural approach. I recently heard Wendi speak at an event and she provided tons of helpful information and tips about how to boost our kid's immunity (some advice included: eat real foods, no gummy vitamins, get rid of hand sanitizer, and limit use of plastics...to name a few!) It was eye-opening to learn how many of the health (and even behavioral issues) our children face are due to their diet. Wendi has a strong passion for working with families who may be looking for another method of treatment for ADD, learning problems, social anxiety, and behavior issues. Wendi's website is a great start if this interview leaves you wondering more about natural health: she provides a great section of resources, a blog, podcast, and a free natural remedies e-course. Enjoy this interesting feature and have a wonderful weekend!
"My lens to see health care changed when both of my daughters had health issues early on and the conventional medicine route didn’t really help them. It was then that I discovered the beauty and effectiveness of natural remedies and using a more holistic approach to healing. I now help other parents on the journey of wellness for their child and am a passionate advocate to help kids thrive! "
