Find Out How We Can Help

You may be feeling misunderstood by the medical system. You’ve likely gone from one treatment or professional to another desperately seeking help, only to continue suffering. We understand and have experienced this personally in our own quest for wellness. You are not alone.


As a result of our recovery from chronic illness and migraines, we are dedicated to partnering with you or a loved one in your journey to health.  We are here to offer you the hope that you can find your path to health too.

We work with individuals, children, and families

experiencing migraines and other chronic issues,

who are motivated to make the lifestyle changes necessary

to address the root causes of their symptoms

and live the life they dream of.

Would You Like to Understand the Root Causes of your Symptoms?

You’re Not Alone. And We’re Here to Help!

We utilize a combined Functional and Holistic Nutrition & Gerson Therapy approach, which investigates the root causes of chronic symptoms and then works to implement the lifestyle changes necessary to restore health by addressing these areas. This approach empowers us to work together with you as a partner to address the underlying causes of dis-ease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of your genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and uses that information to help you develop your own dietary and lifestyle plans that lead to improved health and wellness.

The Gerson Therapy is a natural approach that has been shown to activate the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements. 

Our approach and goal is to support the body’s innate ability to heal and restore itself when it is given the proper lifestyle tools to do so.

Meet Our Team

“Those who bear the mark of pain are never totally free, for they owe a debt to those who suffer.”
– Albert Schweitzer –

Hi! My name is Josette Herdell. If you or a loved one are struggling with chronic migraines and pain, then you’ve come to the right place. I suffered from chronic migraines for nearly two decades and understand this experience all too well. I no longer experience debilitating migraines and am on a mission to partner with other migraineurs in their own personal healing journey. My passion is working with children and families to create healthy habits in order to support long-term health and wellness, as well as partnering with individuals who are motivated to restore their body’s natural healing power using holistic healing therapies. I have a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States, received a Certified Nutrition Specialist® designation from the American Nutrition Association and am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach by ICHWC. I am trained in investigating root causes of illness in order to optimize health and wellness through the lens of nutrition. I’ve had the honor to work with Dr. Kara Fitzgerald, a global leader in Functional Medicine. It is with this experience and training that I am dedicated to serving you to the best of my abilities. There is hope for healing!

Please note: While I have used the Gerson Therapy Approach, I am not a Certified Gerson Therapy practitioner.
