I am a registered homeopath with the North American Society of Homeopaths, and trained in London, UK with the Lakeland College of Homeopathy, and have been a practicing homeopath for seven years. I am also a flower essence practitioner, reiki master and soul recognition practitioner and have recently been initiated into the new energy of Starfire.


My intention is to guide my patients towards achieving their level of optimum health, as without optimum health, life can become an unnecessary struggle. So, my aim is to help prevent the development of chronic disease and to relieve those symptoms already present.

True health, to me, includes spritual, mental and physical health, a synergistic balance of all three.


This week Vicky joins Joy and TJ to share her knowledge which might give you some options, not just for yourself but for your children.

Jennifer Howell is from Gladstone Michigan, Joy got to meet Jen when she came to the U.P.  This week we speak to Jen about her area of expertise, astrology.  Now many will have fun looking at their horoscopes in the newspaper, and sometimes it seems somewhat accurate.  Many times it is not even close.  But as talk to Jen we realize that a more detailed forecast could have some validity, see for yourself.

robin.jpgWhen Robin Williams passed many felt a great loss.  Joy felt his spirit around her right away.  TJ felt there was more to his message and like he was being urged to pursue it.  So this week we channel Robin Williams, and guess who shows up?  John Belushi.  Now, neither of us remembered the connection the two of them shared, after researching we uncovered that Robin was with John the night he overdosed.  In fact Robin would go on to say it changed his path.  So now it all makes sense why John was there.  Joan Rivers is also here, she has some things to say, as always.  ;)   Joan was a pioneer for women in a field dominated by men, what does she have to say?  We also get a few other well known celebrities showing up, Lauren Becall, even Clark Gable.  I know, this sounds like a full house, and it is.  What do they all have to say?  If you're familiar with this show then you can probably have a pretty good idea.  Robin is coming from a place of love and humor.  He has been appearing to many to just bring some joy to their life and remind them of that.  He continues to serve from the other side.  Each is serving in their own way and they send us love.

Also, we start out talking about being grounded and how to stay grounded, especially in this time of great shifting energies.  Many are confused, perhaps this even ties back to why we contacted Robin.  He shares his moments before his suicide and what his greater message is for the rest of us, ultimately that message is always one of love and acceptance.  On this week's show we have several guests... all from the other side!

Mary Reed from West Virginia joins us this week to talk about her book, but also her life as a healer.  Like many who heal, Mary's life has been a bumpy road filled with great reward.  Mary is truly a shining light.

Mary's website:


The 7:00 Wave of Light and Grace.  We came up with an idea to focus love and light for 5 minutes at 7:00 each night and send it to different parts of the world.  Currently we are focusing on the Middle East and Algeria.  If you're interested in being a part of this just send your light as well.

sail5.gifNico Economides felt the need at 18 to go exploring in his canoe from lower Lake Michigan to Lake Huron to the St. Marys River and then onto Lake Superior.  Unlike the other Great Lakes, Lake Superior for many of us is the most majestic and most pristine of the 5 lakes.  For Nico, it felt like he was returning home.  Pehaps he was.  Nico also shares some of his unusual stories, and some of the myths of the lakes.  Does the lake itself have it's own energy spirit?  The natives believe so.  There is a magic about the sea that draws many to her.

Nico today he runs Superior Odessy Sailing Adventures out of Marquette Michigan.  To book cruise on his National Registered Historic Coastal Schooner go to:
