    Your peers said it best...

    "This is so awesome! I love the calmness in the instruction but the intensity with the workouts (that aren't too overwhelming) - even the modified examples you give. Awesome job! Im currently sitting at my desk at work and wanted to jump up and do this entire workout!:)"

    "Ooooooh my gosh! I feel like I'm in food heaven with these recipes. Thanks so much for sharing! ❤"


    "Thank you for allowing me to be human audio is POWERFUL Stuff, how do I put it on repeat, I know that mental illness is the result of Post Traumatic Slavery Syndrome (PTSS) therein lies the individual's journey to dismantle their mind from PTSS, this is the most difficult and perilous task in individual thought and it is the performance of this operation more than any other which justifies the individual's claim of "KNOW THYSELF", this PsyFi is POWERFUL, LIMITLESS INVISIBLE POWER!"

    Our Legacy Begins With Our Health

    With African Americans making up only 5% of physicians in the U.S. it’s no wonder that

    • The infant mortality rate in the black population is twice that of whites.
    • Black men are seven times more likely than white men to receive a diagnosis of H.I.V. and more than twice as likely to die of prostate cancer.
    • Black women have nearly double the obesity rate of white women and are 40 percent more likely to die from breast cancer. 
    • Black people experience much higher rates of hypertension, diabetes and stroke.

    What we know for certain is that in general, Black people are more likely to feel more comfortable with Black doctors and vice versa. BOTTOM LINE: we need more of US taking care of US
