To Help You Choose the Right Program for You
What is the "Recover Your Sparkle" Program?
"Recover Your Sparkle" is a sophisticated Holistic Brain and Mental Health Coaching Program that addresses all 5 Dimensions of Mental Health
We assess - plan and then implement change in the following areas:
- Physical Health
- Mental Health
- Spiritual Health
- Social Health
- Financial Health
This is our physical body, the organ systems, the mechanical part, biochemistry, physics, anatomy, physiology, and more.
This is generally understood to encompass feelings, emotions, beliefs, values, thoughts, schemas and mental patterns.
But have you ever thought about what it really means? Mental health is much more than just what we think is going on in our mind, what we think about.
- Emotional Trauma
- Childhood Adverse Events
- Thought Patterns/Schemas
- Negative Thinking Patterns
- Self-Defeating Beliefs
- "Negative" emotions
- Anger management
- Stress management
- Emotional Needs
- Feeling of Self-Worth, Self-Esteem
- Fear, Worry, Anxiety, Risk-Tolerance
- Emotional needs
This means our very personal and individual connection to a higher power, God, Allah, the Universe, Mother Earth, Jahweh or others, but also meaning and purpose of life.

Holistic Health Assessment and Life Strategy Plan
This alone is worth every penny you paid for the whole program. It includes a detailed assessment of your past, review of all lab tests and other test reports accessible to you, and then - together with Dr. Christine - you will develop your customized life strategy plan that will lead you to your best life, a life worth living, fulfilled and meaningful.
Bi-Monthly Half-Day Extended Coaching Sessions
Each extended coaching session will last around 2-3 hours. The reason is so we will get a real amount of work done for your recovery.
Sessions require a pre-session assessment as well as a post-session survey. These surveys will give both of us the certainty that the sessions were effective for you as well as give me feedback on what and where I can improve my services to serve you even better and more efficient.
Between sessions you are expected to do 15 min or so daily homework assignments (that we both agreed on)
You will be part of a sophisticated online coaching system with access to additional materials, videos, worksheets, to a journal area, to action projects and reminders and more...
Your program also includes unlimited questions (and answers) via email or SMS messaging, interim reviews by Dr. Christine, session notes and private recordings of your sessions.
What Others Say...
A Selection of Case Studies...
Case Study - Trevor - Mental Health - Anxiety
A 35-year old man, let’s call him Trevor, consulted me about his anxiety. He was scared of touching anything. I provided him with information and supported him in working with his psychotherapist to avoid medication. In addition we addressed his diet and did a urine test to see if he had nutritional deficiencies or metabolic abnormalities that would contribute to his anxiety. As part of my health recommendations we provided him with the resources and a customized meal plan a well as a supplement plan and other recommendation to improve his condition.
Case Study - John - Staying Healthy as we get older...
Another of my clients, John, is working at age 72 as a successful engineer. He entered my health advisory program to maintain his health and energy for life and always have one person to hold the strings of his healthcare and wellness together.
I reviewed all previous lab tests, other test results, his travel history and suggested a few extra tests to help assess his health risks.
From there I recommended to him his necessary travel immunizations as well as supplements to take, a customized diet suitable for his age, person and lifestyle and more. He is very happy to know that health recommendations are just an email or phone call away!
Case Study - Carl - Stomach Issues
A gentleman, let’s call him Carl, came to me after had had had surgery for “diverticulitis” . He wanted to know how to eat better to avoid recurrence and transition from the postoperative low-fiber-diet to a regular diet. We did a complete assessment and enrolled him in my health recommendations program, which provided him with access to specialized testing as well as unlimited email and regular phone support as well as supplement and diet recommendations.
We discovered a food sensitivity at the root of his recurrent stomach issues. After transitioning to his ideal diet he feels well and knows that, if he ever has any issues or questions, where to go for the answers!
Case Study - Jane - Gut Health - Autoimmune
A 45 year old woman, let’s call her Jane, had been diagnosed with M. Crohn and rheumatoid arthritis, both autoimmune disorders.
She asked for my health recommendations
After our detailed assessment (Turn-Around-Assessment) I suggested a food sensitivity test. In spite of strong medications and even biologics and cortisone pills she still had to run to the washroom 5-10 times daily as well was in constant pain with her joints. She tested positive for 50 different foods. We sorted out what was significant in several consultations. She also turned out to be deficient in magnesium and Vitamin D as well as trace minerals.
After an elimination diet and customized supplementation she felt slowly better and better and in collaboration with her family doctor was able to get off the prednisone. After targeted supplementation and healing her gut microbiome and more she was able to tolerate many of the foods she had to avoid in the beginning. She is still taking biologics (injections), but is no longer chained to the toilet and is pain-free most days.
Case Study - Lucy - Dementia Risk - Brain Health
A 64 year old lady, let’s call her Lucy, consulted me because there were many people with Alzheimer’s dementia in her family. She wanted to know if there are ways to prevent her from falling prey to this devastating illness.
I educated her about the science, that yes, there are ways to reduce the risk of getting it, and how to go about it. We did a complete assessment and she entered in an ongoing personal health recommendations program where I provided her with all the resources, research, customized information, genetic and lab testing and more that helped her asses her own risk, optimize her own brain health and answered all her questions.
She is doing well and no longer scared to face the future.
Case Study - Emma - Fatigue - "Nothing Wrong" ?
A lady, let’s call her Emma, age 72, felt chronically tired. She went to her family doctor who told her it was her diabetes (that was treated with insulin, leading to constant weight gain…). And she needed to live with it. He did a blood test and told Emma it was “all normal”
She came to me for a Turn-Around-Assessment and Health Recommendations . After reviewing her complete history and all previous lab tests and other tests available, it was obvious that her thyroid was low and she was anemic (low in blood). It showed clearly in her bloodwork. She wondered why the family doctor didn’t say anything about it… I tested her for iodine deficiency (she was deficient) and for stomach acid (it was low). She also was iron- and B12-deficient. I recommended nutritional changes as well as a customized supplement plan. She felt better very soon and started to eat better for her type.
Case Study - Bill - Fibromyalgia - Chronic Pain
A 55-year old man, let’s call him Bill, had been diagnosed at age 11 with “Fibromyalgia”. He was constantly in pain. Over the years his pain got worse and he felt that it was “in his bones”. His family doctor felt it was “all in his head”. As time went on, Bill felt worse and worse and at some point had to give up work. He had trouble getting the disability pension he needed to live.
He consulted me for advice: I did our assessment and noted that he walked hunched over. I asked him if he had recently had an x-ray. He said, not in over 20 years. He had asked repeatedly for an x-ray but the doctor had refused it as “not necessary”. I offered to go with him to his next doctor’s appointment and explained to his family doctor what was going on. He got his x-ray. Eventually he got more x-rays and it was discovered that the poor man was suffering from Bone spurs all over his body which were pinching his nerves and muscles…. No one knows how long that had been the case. He got his disability and is managing his pain with medication, diet, supplements and moderate exercise.
Case Story - Adam - Cancer - Leukemia
A client, let’s call him Adam for privacy purposes, age 46, had a low-grade fever and stomach pains. He also bruised easily. His physician wasn’t sure what was going on and suggested a wait and see approach. It didn’t get better, and Adam went to the emergency room. In a CT scan they found a big abscess in this abdomen. His white blood cells were high, too, nothing unusual in the case of an abscess.
But after several rounds of antibiotics Adam still had low-grade fevers although the abscess seemed to have disappeared.
His wife brought me a copy of his latest bloodwork, and I saw at once that not only were his white blood cells elevated, but also had an unusual distribution, not fitting with “just” an abscess.
I suggested a bone marrow biopsy to rule out leukemia.
It took a further 3 weeks in the hospital before finally his doctors gave in to his wife’s urges and did a bone marrow biopsy (although they said it would probably be unnecessary…).
The result: Adult leukemia, highly treatable with simple medications.
He is fine now, 3 years later….
