Today is ‪#‎ThrowBack‬ ‪#‎Thursday‬, and I thought it would be appropriate to share my story about the personal transformations I’ve gone through since joining SanaVita, Center for Holistic Cleansing.

For those of who you haven’t met me yet, my name is Joshua Board, and I am the Operations Manager here at SanaVita. I also happen to be a grown version of the boy you see in that picture above! I grew up in Huntington Long Island, where I was raised by my two lovely parents; who like most parents in the late 80’s and early 90’s were unaware of how to truly eat well and treat/heal the body naturally.

Every since I was a little kid I would get sick with a sinus infection, or from asthma attacks as many as five times a year. When I would become sick I was generally out for the count one or two weeks at a time and taking antibiotics 4-5 times a year. Additionally, I began to develop heart burn and IBS issues around the age of 12, which persisted for over a decade. My family was unaware of Holistic Health, and we made no connection between my weak immune system, my gut issues, my diet and lifestyle, or how I treated my body with Antibiotics when it was weakened.

Fast forward to 2010; I reached out to an old family friend Gabriel Hoffman, who I knew worked in the field of holistic health. I approached Gabe in the hopes of addressing my diet and lifestyle choices…little did I know I would receive life changing guidance. Through BioFeedback, Gabe was able to evaluate where there was inflammation and stress in my body. He spoke with me about the damaging effects of Antibiotics, stress, land a lack of crucial vitamins and minerals. I started to make some of the changes I needed to improve the quality of my life.

After a few years of grinding away at a job that took its toll on me physically and emotionally, I saw Gabe again, hoping to not only address my diet, but my overall health and mental outlook. I had reached my tipping point as my health was at its lowest point. It was then, in 2014, that Gabe introduced me to SanaVita and it’s wonderful founder and owner, Arul Goldman. I began receiving Biofeedback treatments, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy, and Ionic Footbaths. I also began to take a regiment of Homeopathic remedies, probiotics, and natural detox protein powder. I began to feel the positive effects immediately!

I am happy to say that I no longer face any IBS gut issues, my energy is up, and my heart burn is all but gone! Additionally, I have only gotten sick once between my introduction to SanaVita in early 2014, and now. (and even then, my only cold lasted for 2 days!!) The level of warmth and appreciation I feel for Gabe Hoffman, Arul Goldman, and everyone at SanaVita is beyond measure. Words cannot explain how grateful I am, for the Holistic approach they have provided me has forever changed my life for the better.
