Re-discover how you were meant to live…
Dani’s Six Commonsense Steps to Radical Healing
About The Book
In a time when we have access to more knowledge and resources than ever before, and we hold the power of information literally in the palm of our hands, a strange thing is happening: We still believe most of what we hear.
This means that when we hear things like this from our doctors… “You’ve got xyz condition, and the best we can do is manage your symptoms…” we believe it.
Sadly, the idea that we have to feel worse and take more prescriptions as we age is just a lie, plain and simple. It’s a lie that has kept us stuck not in a healthcare system, but in a sick-care system that frankly doesn’t profit from happy, healthy patients.
I’d like to help you break free from that untruth and allow you to re-discover how you were meant to live… Wild & Well!
learn that it’s not as hard as you think to eat well, sleep well, poop well, move well, de-stress well, and connect well
An excerpt from Chapter 1
Here’s the Game Plan
This book is divided into two parts: commonsense evidence and common-sense action. In Part One, we will discuss topics like ACE (adverse childhood experience) testing and what I call lifestyle diseases. You will discover powerful, clear, and succinct information on what is causing you to feel the way you do. In Part Two, I’ll spell out exactly what you can do about it! If you are ready to put on your gloves and fight, then consider Part Two as your coach that will get you ring-ready.
My ultimate goal is to provide you with a com-monsense guide to total restoration.
No matter what season you are in right now, I want to you be able to use the tools in this book to fight for the life God meant for you to have. I wrote it to give you hope and a strategy, but it’s up to you to take it and run with it!
If you are suffering from autoimmune disease, thyroid issues, hormonal imbalance, weight gain, fatigue, bowel issues, low sex drive, insomnia, or stress, I’ve got you. It’s not “normal” to put on weight and struggle to get it off. It’s not “normal” for your body to have an autoimmune reaction. It’s not “normal” to stop wanting to have sex with your spouse. It’s not “normal” to have to take a pill to sleep.
A “normal” body is one that works the way God designed it to work.
I believe that the six steps on the path to health and healing are to eat well, sleep well, move well, poop well, de-stress well, and commune well. While I am passionate about these truths, I am even more excited about returning your passion for life to you. I hope to do that by helping you experience breakthroughs in your health that give your body and your health back.
It’s your life, and you deserve to feel great! None of us know the moment we will take our final breath. Whether my last heartbeat comes today or 50 years from now, I want to be living my best life—inside and outside—at that moment.
When you are in pain, you are not suffering from a Tylenol deficiency. I will dispel the myths propagated by Band-Aid-style medicine and get to the root of your issues. Then, I will give you a precise plan for what to do and what not to do. I know what NOT to do because I’ve done it for most of my life.
People see health influencers and think we’ve got it all figured out. But I’m a work in progress, just like you! I’m not a magician or a world-renowned doctor. I’m just a country girl from Gilbertsville, Kentucky who had an epiphany one day. Someone finally looked me in the eyes and asked me the right questions, and now I get to share some research-based truths that will transform your life, if you are ready to have a little faith and step out of the boat.

“A workbook and a wakeup call, loaded with tips and tidbits, Dani takes on the vital role of challenging our ingrained belief systems and offering an opportunity to change course. Dani does a stellar job of pulling back the self-limiting curtain of our perception and illuminating a new thoughtful and hopeful path forward. Dani walks us down memory lane of how and why we have arrived at this moment of medical mayhem fraught with fragmentation, dysfunction and rampant failure. But she also inspires us with her wild and wellness-centric ways to both individually and collectively do what is innately possible, to rebel against a broken system and to create a new reality beyond only surviving, but thriving.”

“With a few Google searches, anyone can easily discover which foods are inflammatory or what doctors say about getting adequate rest. But I believe people resonate with a book for far more than its content. I believe people will resonate with this book because of its overarching and undeniable message of hope. If you have been feeling broken―physically, emotionally, mentally― Dani will let you know that you are not alone. You also don’t have to stay that way! Dani’s six steps are part of the prescription that she gives every single one of her patients who are suffering from autoimmune disease, lifestyle diseases, and more that lead to strained relationships and exhaustion. You are not sinking, and you are stronger than you know, and I know you will be inspired to living your wildest and most well life thanks to Dani’s wit, wisdom, and research.”
