Our biggest hope at Take Back Your Health™ is that we can help you experience less pain, have more happiness and get back to living the life that you always imagined you would.
My name is Robin Shirley. I used to be too sick to go to school, drive my car, cook for myself, hold a job, go on dates or even keep up with friendships.
At 12 years old I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and found myself spending days going from doctor’s office to doctor’s office, with trips to the pharmacy in between. After a long day of waiting rooms and blood draws, I would come home to nap, or do school work while laying in bed.
My parents opened my eyes to the world of natural health when they took me to a wellness center in Washington D.C., where I experienced food allergy testing, EMF exposure consultation, and a doctor who looked at chronic miasms to gain insight into the causes of my illness. I was fascinated and found myself thick into the world of holistic health, integrative nutrition and green living.
It took a long time, and many setbacks, but I've regained my health to a point that I feel healthier than I did before my diagnosis.
With the help of family and friends, I started the first Take Back Your Health™ Conference in Washington, D.C.
The very first Take Back Your Health™ Conferences featured speakers including Joel Furhman, Andrea Beaman, David Wolfe, Jason Wrobel, Sally Fallon Morel, Vani Hari, John Doulliard, John Robbins, Kate Northrup, and Robb Wolf, among many others.
My hope was that by bringing the health luminaries who had inspired me to my community, my friends and family would be inspired to live healthier as well.
The thing that is so inspiring about the Take Back Your Health™ lifestyle is that as you begin to make healthy changes and feel the improvements, you start to see the power that you have to control exactly how you feel.
You should never expect (or allow) someone else to take responsibility for your own health, because you are the only person who has your best health at heart.
You are in charge.
Take Back Your Health™ has transformed from a simple conference into what you see here on this website. We have grown into a network of resources and a community of people who are all pursuing their own healing journey, together.
Our goal is to help you find the healers, products and experts that can help you bring your whole body, mind and spirit from a state of disease back into balance.
Take Back Your Health™ is for anyone who has ever felt limited by dis-ease, whether it be physical, mental or emotional disease.
The greatest part about Taking Back Your Health is that you realize your own power to have exactly what you want – if you just take the time to learn about your body and mind and to open yourself to change and possibility.
