More and more today we are hearing about how dairy is no good for our body. It’s been proven that dark leafy greens actually contain more readily available calcium than dairy does. As humans, we are not meant to be ingesting dairy after the natural age that breastfeeding ends (around 2 years of age). After that point, our body no longer produces the necessary enzyme to properly digest dairy, and thus we are forcing our pancreas to work overtime every time we have dairy by making it produce certain other enzymes we will need to digest it.

Kelly Bentley from Soulely You Holistic Wellness uses her knowledge and skill set, to work one on one assessing clients physically, as well as metaphysically (that which is beyond what presents itself physically in the body). She has a solid knowledge base of bioenergy (the various human energy systems) the different stages of infant development, and how these correlate to a physical structure, mental emotional capacity, personality, disposition and perception. She appreciates socio-cultural correlations, as well as psychospiritual influences (pertaining to the relationship between spirituality and the mind), unearthing the root cause of mental and physical symptoms that often get overlooked by other medical professionals, giving the most comprehensive care possible.
