I opened Healthy Alternatives because I wanted to help others take their health back naturally like I did. I suffered from hypoglycemia, esonophilic esophagitis, anemia, fibromyalgia, degenerative disc condition, ischemia, vertigo and IBS. (I was on Viox, valium, previcid, guifenisen steroid inhalers, ect.) I eliminated my prescription drugs with alternative health care. In 2003 I was having trouble with my esophagus. In 2004 my esophagus collapsed. I was unable to eat or drink thick liquids and had difficulty breathing. Milk was too thick to swallow. My esophagus would not stay open. In 2006 it stayed open but I had lost the ability to move food down the esophagus. I had motility damage. With the Ningxia Red juice, essential oils, Reiki, Raindrop Therapy, allergy elimination and prayer, I regained my health and my ability to swallow and eat. I feel compelled to help others Heal Naturally “If you don’t have your health you really don’t have a life!” I vowed to help others achieve health by offering the modalities that helped me regain my health.
Benefits of Sound and Meditation: Relax on a yoga mat or seated in a chair. You will be guided with a meditation while listening to Crystal Tibetan and kaliski bowls being played.
- Promotes flow of energy or QI
- Relaxes muscle tension
- Balance adrenals

- Relieves strained muscles, migraines & sinuses.
- Increase bone density
- Lower blood pressure.
Sound Healing Session - During a individual Sound Healing Session you will be fully clothed on a massage table and will receive Chakra Balancing with Sound and Vibration. It is massage at the molecular level. Energy creates vibrations which assist in the healing process. The sound emanating from the crystal singing bowls affects our frequency. It can reduce stress, anxiety, sinuses, and lower blood pressure
Carol Morissette is the only licensed massage therapist in Western New York to be certified in vibrational sound massage. Morissette completed her certification in Vibrational Sound Massage in May through the Vibrational Sound Association at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Vibrational sound massage is a method of deep relaxation that can relieve stress and improve emotional well-being. Vibrational sound massage (VSM) combines powerful vibration and tones to induce immediate relaxation.
VSM has advantages over traditional massage. The client remains fully clothed and physical contact is kept to a minimum. It is less physically intrusive and will not leave the client feeling sore the next day. It is very beneficial for clients with fibromyalgia, arthritis, MS, geriatric, or recovering from cancer.
During VSM the body will absorb waves of vibration into its tissue, allowing the body to relax & repair itself instead of responding to outside concerns. Like meditation, VSM helps us be internally aware, while being more present in the moment and more connected with our surroundings. VSM takes you right into the Theta & Delta brainwave state.
Tension and stress affect the body’s overall health. Persistent stress can lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and arthritis. Stress is the cause of physical and emotional blockages. VSM decreases the effects of stress on the body and mind.
VSM uses Therapeutic Zen Singing Bowls.
Therapeutic Zen singing bowls are different from the traditional Tibetan bowls because they have a pure tone and strong vibration. The metal mixture is modified to provide an extremely resonant alloy. It has a subdued value and purity of tone.
The different size and tone of bowls are effective at treating different regions of the body. Combining these tones can produce Binural Beats.
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor discovered the healing power of sound and was inspired to use the healing power of sound in his medical practice. Sound can improve your body's capacity effecting immune strength & brainwave patterns, as well as the quality of your daily life. $80/hr
Meditation and Sound Healing: Relax on a yoga mat or seated in a chair. You will be guided in a meditation while listening to crystal Tibetan bowls and kaliski bowls being played. The sound emanating from the crystal singing bowls affects our frequency. It can reduce stress, anxiety, sinuses, and lower blood pressure as well as balancing adrenals and promoting sleep. I’ve been able to relieve sinus congestion, reduce a woman’s Blood Pressure problems, relieve back pain, relieved tooth ache, and relieve my own trigeminal Neuroglial with herbs and sound.
IET (Integrated Energy Therapy) is a Gentle therapeutic touch therapy to certain acupressure points on the body. It will serve to remove emotional trauma and energy blocks deep in the body's tissues. With IET we begin to release the past, live in the present and align with our soul's purpose. By focusing angelic energy through touch, we release our suppressed cellular memories and transform our lives. $60/hr
Raindrop Therapy - Essential Oils are dropped onto the spine, and then gently feathered in and massaged. Serves to detoxify and boost immune system (Better than a flu shot!) In ancient times, the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans understood the healing properties of aromatherapy and touch and saw how they played an important role in every day health. Today, the use of essential oils has come back to mainstream complimentary medicine to help us regain health and vitality. $80/hr
Massage stimulates the immune system, helps to increase circulation, reduces stress, increases joint mobility, helps removes waste from the body, and increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the massaged area. I specialize in massage for individuals with Fibromyalgia.
Reiki is a hands on holistic healing technique that creates deep relaxation and relieves stress and pain. I practice Usui, Kundalini Reiki and Johrei. Johrei helps eliminate toxins and focuses on the kidneys which are related to many illnesses in the body.

NINGXIA RED JUICE
Eliminate toxins from your body.
Wolfberry juice has the highest natural antioxidant levels.
NingXia Wolfberry helps our body fight the good fight for a healthy life. It is chock full of phytonutrients. Wolfberry juice has the highest amounts of S-ORAC activity. A specific antioxidant. measurement for SOD activity.
S-ORAC testing measures a product's ability to destroy the most dangerous and abundant free-radical--Superoxide. Elevated superoxide is linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, asthma, and other inflammatory conditions.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutic-grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin. The French scientist Rene Gattefosse was the first to discover these properties when he severely burned his hands in a laboratory explosion. Lavender has also been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing, and balancing -- physically and emotionally. This plant is grown and distilled at the Young Living Farms.
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Jean Valnet, M.D., studied peppermint's effect on the liver and respiratory systems. Other scientists have also researched peppermint's role in affecting impaired taste and smell when inhaled. Dr. William N. Dember of the University of Cincinnati studied peppermint's ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy. Alan Hirsch, M.D., studied peppermint's ability to directly affect the brain's satiety center, which triggers a sense of fullness after meals. This plant is grown and distilled at the Young Living Farms.

Eliminate & Kill Mold by Diffusing Thieves Essential Oil
Dr. Edward Close uses Young Living’s TheraPro® diffuser for use in conjunction with his protocol for eliminating toxic mold. The tests were conducted in three different environments: a hospital; a closed, mold-infested 9,000-square-foot health club; and a private residence.
"I am pleased to report that our tests of the TheraPro diffuser compared favorably with the 6-watt cold-air diffusers we’ve previously been using."
Features that make the TheraPro Diffuser easier to use:
Eliminates the tubing and glass nebulizer of the other diffusers tested
Has built-in on-and-off timers
Holds a full 15 ml bottle of oil
Has to be filled less often
Notice: In order to get the best results using the TheraPro Diffuser for eliminating mold, you need to know the following:
Because the TheraPro utilizes a different mechanism for atomizing essential oils, there are differences in the way the oils are delivered over time. The TheraPro starts off at a higher rate of delivery, which decreases as the oil level in the bottle drops. Because of this the bottle has to be refilled every 10 to 12 hours in order to be effective. This is important because at the declining rate—after 10 to 12 hours—the amount of oil being diffused is insufficient to maintain the concentration needed to kill mold.
So to use the TheraPro Diffuser for mold, you will need to have at least two 15 ml bottles of Thieves® essential oil blend on hand to ensure that you can diffuse at the necessary rate for at least 24 hours.
When used in this manner, in conjunction with the Close Protocol*, laboratory analyses showed results comparable to the results we’re used to getting using the 6-watt direct-pressure cold-air diffusers. I can, therefore, whole-heartedly recommend the TheraPro Diffuser for use in eliminating mold problems, provided it is used as described above.

(this excerpt from "Young Living's Product Blog")
Essential Oils were mankind's first medicines. The ancient Egyptian people used oils for healing diseases, skin and hair care, embalming, and religious rituals and ceremonies. Well-preserved oils were found in alabaster jars in King Tut's tomb. There are 188 references to oils in the Bible. Some of Young Living's blends are recipes from the Bible and from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Chemistry of Essential Oils
Essential oils are made primarily of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. Their small molecules are easily recognized by the body and penetrate deeply into the tissues within minutes. Essential oils can cross the bloodbrain barrier, making them beneficial to the body and mind. The oils bring more oxygen to all of the body's cells, repairing DNA and cellular structure.
Essential oil frequencies are several times greater than frequencies of herbs and foods. Research has been conducted on the use of electrical energy to reverse disease. Research proved that patients felt better emotionally when oils were diffused in their rooms. Within seconds the patients were calmer and less anxious with little exposure and inhalation. Certain oils acted within 1-3 minutes; other acted within seconds. An oil applied to the bottom of the feet could travel to the head and take effect within one minute. Unhealthy substances cause frequency changes. In one test, the frequency of two individuals- the first a 26 year old male and the second a 24 year old male, was measured at 66 MHz each. The first individual held a cup of coffee (without drinking any), and his frequency dropped to 58 MHz in 3 seconds. He put the coffee down and inhaled an aroma of essential oils. Within 21 seconds, his frequency has returned to 66 MHz. The second individual took a sip of coffee and his frequency dropped to 52MHz in 3 seconds. However, no essential oils were used during the recovery time, and it took 3 DAYs for his frequency to return to its initial 66 MHz. One surprising aspect of the study measured the influence that thoughts have on the body's electrical frequency. Negative thoughts lowered the measured frequency by 12 MHz and positive thoughts raised the measured frequency by 10 MHz. It was also found that prayer and meditation increased the measured frequency levels by 15 MHz.
Oxygen delivers nutrients to the cells of the body. Because essential oils contain such high amounts of oxygenating molecules, they act as effective delivery agents to bring food nutrients through the cell wall to feed the cell nucleus. Disease cannot exist in oxygen rich environment.
Without an adequate delivery agent to assist the cell to receive needed nutrients, the cell can become deprived of needed nutrients. Without adequate nutrition, the cell wall thickens, further hindering delivery of nutrients. When malnutrition occurs, the cell begins to deteriorate, creating a host for disease-causing pathogens. Essential oils are lipid soluble and can soften, penetrate, and reoxygenate a cell membrane, which has hardened. This allows the cell to function normally again. Essential oils deliver 21% more oxygen to every cell in the body within 20 minutes without any detrimental effects. Hydrogen peroxide increases oxygen by 9.5% and causes damage to the cells by creating free radicals.
Exposure to common household cleaners may be making your children sick.
Modern testing is proving time and time again that many ingredients used in personal care products are not good for the body, skin or hair. The greatest concern of the sincere scientist is centered around Sodium Laurel Sulfate. This is a detergent found in approximately 90% of commercial shampoos, including 'No More Tears' baby shampoos.
Killer Household Chemicals
Laundry Room Products: Numerous products are used in our laundry rooms to clean our clothes, but what types of toxins are we using at the same time? Sodium or calcium hypocrite: Highly corrosive, irritates or burns skin, eyes or respiratory tract. May cause pulmonary edema, vomiting or coma if ingested.
Dishwashing Liquid & Antibacterial Cleaners: The new concern is almonella. While this can be a potentially deadly bacteria, we think a little common sense would stop it from affecting you or your family. Typical cleaners claiming to inhibit salmonella might be worse than the problem itself!
Furniture Polish: Petroleum Distillates: Highly flammable, can cause skin and lung cancer.
Chances are your toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo, cosmetics, bubble bath, shaving gel, etc., ALL contain Sodium Laurel Sulfate and/or Propylene Glycol. The data sheets for Propylene Glycol clearly state 'Avoid Contact with the Skin'. Granted, we live in an unfriendly, harsh environment, and we can't fix it all. But we can be informed consumers and make simple choices. Let's not smear, lather or brush with known carcinogens!
Harmful Ingredients in Our Everyday Products
Triclosan - Even though it kills bacteria, it may contribute to making bacteria resistant to antibiotics.
Parabens - Linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, reproductive toxicity, immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and skin irritation. The four common parabens are ethylparaben, butylparaben, methylparaben and propylparaben.
Fragrance mixes are associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproduction system.
Air freshener products:
Air freshener products emit allergens and toxic air pollutants including benzene, formaldehyde, phthalate esters, and toluene. Phthalates are hormone-disrupting chemicals that can be particularly dangerous for young children and unborn babies. 1,4-Dichlorobenzene is a chemical which can be found in the blood of 96% of Americans. It has been linked to lung damage, is a known carcinogen, and it is an E.P.A. registered pesticide. Studies found it to increase rates of asthma. It can be found in the majority of air fresheners, toilet deodorizers, and mothballs. It works by attacking the receptors in the nose, and thus eliminating the sense of smell.
A colorless, viscous hygroscopic liquid - CH3CH(OH)G--I20H - is the primary ingredient in anti-freeze solutions, hydraulic fluids, and is used as a solvent.
Products containing Propylene Glycol:
· May cause severe adverse health effects and has been found to cause contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities.
· Can inhibit skin cell growth in human tests.
Irritates the skin and causes damage just from contact. May harm cell membranes, causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage to skin.
Sodium Laurel Sulfate
(SLS): A harsh detergent implicated in hair loss, contact dermatitis, and possible
damage to eye formation in young children. Additionally, SLS has been known
to cause the following problems:
- SLS can cause cataracts in adults and delay healing on the surface of the cornea.
- SLS builds up in the heart, liver, lungs and brain and can cause major problems in those areas.
- SLS can cause the skin to flake and separate, and creates substantial roughness on the skin.
- SLS retards healing and keeps young children's eyes from developing properly.
- SLS is a caustic cleanser that actually corrodes the hair follicle and impairs its ability to grow hair.
- SLS is routinely used in clinical studies to clinical studies to deliberately irritate the skin so the effects of other substances can be tested.
Chemicals in Food and Drinks
BHA or BHT- Can cause liver and kidney damage, behavior problems, infertility, weakened
immune system, and cancer (banned in England).
Sucralose - chlorinated sugar
High fructose corn syrup – Corn based, gastrointestinal distress, elevated triglycerides, and
caused tumors in mice.
EDTA – Skin irritation, gastrointestinal distress, liver and kidney damage, and mineral
Propylene glycol – antifreeze, skin and eye irritant, nervous system and kidney damage.
Sodium caseinate – avoid if milk allergy or MSG sensitive. May contain free glutamates.
MSG - Mutagen, causes headaches, itching, nausea, brain, nervous system, reproductive
disorders, high BP. Brain damage especially in children.
