Caroline Stites' (ND, MS) goal was to create a paradigm shift by building a new path to total vitality – one that would be a fusion of Eastern, Western and Naturopathic medical philosophies. Why? Because of her life experience. She was raised in a family of traditional Medical Doctors, and highly respected this belief paradigm. Traditional Medicine centered around pharmaceuticals and surgery, and seemingly threw a drug at everything…headaches, sniffles, depression, high BP or cholesterol, pain, etc. She was well down the same path when she asked a question that changed her life journey forever. “Why are we treating symptoms and cutting out tumors and other disease, and yet never addressing the underlying problem? Why are we giving so many drugs, most of them with side effects…so we have to give other drugs to counteract those side effects…essentially creating chemical soup in the body, and bankrupting the individual with the high cost of prescriptions.” She thought, there must be a better way.

Lynn's health practitioner training started in 2000. As a bioenergetic practitioner, she trained on a biofeedback machine to guide her to the body’s specific need for balancing. A lot of her training has been centered on the basics of how the body was intended to work; from nutritional needs to the very important aspect of emotional roots and the effect they play on disease and illness. Later, she began working with a hands on modality which enabled her to put aside the equipment and work strictly with facilitating the body’s healing process through energetic medicine or the body’s own energy field. She later obtained her Naturopathic Doctorate through Trinity College of Natural Health. This allowed her to study a wide range of modalities such as herbology, flower essence therapy, reflexology, homeopathy and iridology just to name a few. In late 2004, she was introduced to BodyTalk. She felt a desire to use a modality that would allow her to work with her clients on all levels; physical, emotional and spiritual and would not tie her to equipment or supplements. She is a certified BodyTalk practitioner and PaRama College graduate for advanced BodyTalk.

The concept for the original Choose Health business was developed while we Mark Holland was building his last company, a dietary supplement brand and distribution business called Lifes2good. They spent a lot of money running clinical trials on their products to both substantiate them legally and to prove to the medical community and their customers that they worked. There was a lot of frustration watching other supplement marketers make unsubstantiated claims on nutritional products that didn’t work. There is really no onus on the part of early-stage supplement marketers to substantiate their product claims. As a result, the customer is victim to over-hyped and under substantiated nutritional products.
