Meet Dr. Csilla Veress
Hi, I’m Dr. Csilla Veress and I want to begin by saying how excited I am that you are here and how proud I am of you for taking this first step.
We have the amazing ability to heal ourselves, body, mind and spirit. I call this – body, mind, and spirit – “The Trinity” because they must work in conjunction with each other to complete the whole. I believe there is an innate and powerful healing mechanism in each of us. In Naturopathic medicine, we call this the “vis”.
This is my medicine and my passion. I am here to help you realize this amazing power within yourself, to help you identify the layers that need to be peeled away, and to provide the best avenue for your healing. The body is fantastically resilient, and you have the ability to transform the trinity of your health at any stage of life.
“Symptoms” are just another way for our bodies to tell us that we need to pay attention. We need to strip away the layers of physical, mental and emotional injuries that we have accumulated through the years. We need to create an environment within our bodies that will continue to stimulate the inner healing we possess. This is done by listening to our inner wisdom, and by changing how we think, what we say, what we do, how we live, who we choose to surround ourselves with, and how we interact with others.
Water fasting is one of the amazing ways we can tap into this innate healing from within. But it’s not enough. I believe it’s important to empower my patients to make choices that continue to enhance their vis and continue to heal and achieve optimal health, not just physically but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Ultimately, my mission is to help guide you towards optimal health so that you can reach your highest potential because the world needs you. Yes, YOU! You have a unique and wonderful gift that only you are able to give to the world and I want everyone to be able to have the freedom of health in order to shine their brightest.
When we fully embrace who we are as individuals and show up owning our greatness we continue the evolutionary process, which ultimately, leads us to the freedom of living our best lives. The human capacity to heal is a miracle, which I have the good fortune to say I see it happening every day and I want you to know that it is possible for you as well.
If you’ve found this website, it means that you are ready for a full life transformation. You’re ready to do the work that optimal health requires and that means getting really intimate with your deepest emotions, finding love and purpose in your life, taking steps to cultivate loving people around you that support you, activating your muscles with movement daily, making things like sleep a priority and, daily acts of self-care that allow your body to be ready for changes that present in our world. And maybe most importantly, emphasizing a whole food, plant-based lifestyle that includes the beautiful healing modality of water fasting. Hippocrates said it best when he said, “let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food”. Nothing will ever taste as good as you feel when you are living with optimal health. Choosing foods that create health in the body is vitally important for living your best life and lastly, if water fasting is indicated, doing yearly fasts for longevity.
Are you ready to start to embrace your “Trinity” and start your transformation?
- Whole Food Plant Based lifestyle, centered around organic, non-GMO, unprocessed foods. Preferably no added sugar, salt and oil.
