When Paul found out he was HIV+ in June
2004, he was immediately determined to survive because of his deep
passion for making people happy through music. In addition to his
lifelong studies in classical music, Paul was studying massage therapy
in Las Vegas, Nevada for 7 months, just prior to his HIV+ test result.
These studies, like Paul's studies of music, were also created out of
Paul's strong desire to help other people. Massage Therapy training
gave Paul a rigorous scientific education in Anatomy, Physiology, and
Paul spent the next three whole years doing
almost nothing but researching HIV/AIDS, and the basic biochemistry of
immunology and toxicology. Paul's scientific research from Germany
showed that AIDS could be remedied through nutrition. This research was
extremely dense, and it took Paul months to figure out exactly what it
was saying. Through great strides, Paul eventually realized that what it
was offering was a completely new theory of the scientific causes of
Acquired Immune Deficiency and how to address these causes in any human
being. Paul not only innovated how to implement this therapy without
having to fly to Germany, but also figured out how the science applied
to the food we eat, the lives we lead, and the environments we live in.
Ultimately, it was with this newly formulated holistic theory of his own
that Paul beat AIDS in his own kitchen with foods geared towards the
Paul is a Certified Healing Food
Specialist, an aspiring web designer and self-published book author. He
strives to vastly empower the health of immune-compromised clientelle
and many others by applying the sum total of his intimate holistic
knowledge of the immune system and how food/diet, lifestyle, and
environment affect human health. Although he started out in life as a
classical musician, he believes destiny has carved out for him a broader
path towards healing. Paul is also the author of the new book,
"Immune: How to Beat AIDS in Your Kitchen". Based on the author's
personal experiences of surviving AIDS in 2005 and coming to thrive
immensely thereafter, Immune is a book about how to repair, rebuild, and
stabilize the immune system. The book is for all people, although it
can mean the difference between life and death for the
immune-compromised person. It is a thorough scientific, yet holistic
inquiry into the exact nature of how lifestyle, nutritional, and
environmental factors actually cause immune illness. The book shows how
to reverse these causes using simple kitchen practices and lifestyle
remedies in order to regain immune health and happiness.
Paul is always looking forward to helping
people through individualized Immunity Consultations by phone, email, or
in person. For those in desperate need of simple truth on how to
nourish and protect the human body, Paul offers his services on a
Donna has been interested
in health and fitness most of her life. She started out at the
University of AZ as a Physical Eduaction major, but changed her major to
Business Administration with a PE minor. She enjoys running, tennis,
archery, and golf. She won't turn down a chance at hoops or kicking
around a soccer ball. At least three times per week, you will find
Donna at the gym lifting weights to keep things "toned". That is really
important as we age.
After starting, running
and selling several businesses, Donna studied Massage. For the past 19
years she has been a massage therapist working to educate people about
their bodies and to assist in relieving injuries and pain. She studied
and obtained her Masters in Holistic Nutrition from Clayton College in
Birmingham, AL. She is currently enrolled in the PhD program. Advanced
Nutrition Group, Inc. was born two years ago. Donna enjoys
coaching others about their health and help them to recognize "good"
food from "bad" food. Most people haven't a clue when it comes to
understanding food labels. She practices what she calls, "Functional
Nutrition". Standard lab tests are used to uncover YOUR
biochemical individuality. When the lab results show something out of
"functional" range, a specific eating program and supplement regimen are
designed to help. Then, after a specified time, the lad is run again
to see what improvements have taken place. So, everything is based on
scientific labs that are common in everyday practice.
Diet wise, Donna really
believes in the practices of Weston A. Price and the Price Foundation.
This is based on the science of what traditional cultures ate and how
they prepared their foods to stay healthy. This has proven beneficial
to many. Donna will begin cooking classes in 2009 showing people how to
cook using these time-tested, traditional techniques. Classes are fun
and informative and open to all over the age of 16. Donna will be
taking the CHFS Level II Master Training and may go on to become a CHFS

with unsuccessful medical treatments for ulcerative colitis as a young

given, along with follow-up consultations, guidance in choosing and
shopping for food, as well as demonstration and assistance with food
preparation if desired. Having been through a transition to a nourishing,
whole foods diet after dealing with the frustrations of poor health, financial
strain, and conflicting medical advice, Edie understands how overwhelming the
process can seem and strives to make it attainable and practical for everyone
based on their own individual needs and situations. Call or email for
