About Dr. Felty, Owner of Natural Advancement Consulting
Dr. Felty knows what it's like to be a patient who is searching for answers to feel well again. When she first became sick at the age of 14, she was first prescribed medications and surgery with no education on root causes, diet, lifestyle, and ways to heal. Her digestive and fatigue symptoms worsened and side effects began, debilitating her further into disease. So when all else failed, surgical removal of her colon was strongly recommended and this made her turn to non-invasive and natural methods of healing.
She has worked with various holistic practitioners from all over the world, learning different methods to heal and reconnect the mind, body, and spirit. Some were band-aids or green allopathy and others were powerfully healing. She has learned about the power and impact of diet, lifestyle, the mind, trauma, environmental toxins, spirituality, nature, and community for health and healing.
We all have an innate power within each of us to heal and optimize health. Medications and surgery can be life saving in acute emergencies but they do not get to the root cause of why we become sick in the first place or address the factors that keep us sick. Activating our self healing ability is possible and very personal. We are all unique and a one size fits all approach simply doesn't work anymore.
This is why she created Natural Advancement Consulting, a personalized consulting practice that educates and empowers you to take charge of your health. Her role is not a doctor, but as a guide, consultant, and fellow human to support you on your wellness journey.
"I'm so grateful that you are here! My mission is to help reduce suffering globally and that begins from the inside out. It starts with you and me. Let's grow a healthier community through advanced natural and holistic health care."
