Best of Edmond: Energetic Wellness
Finding healthy solutions to some of life’s biggest issues can be challenging. As the owner of Energetic Wellness, Michele Menzel, ND has been studying natural health for 15 years. After suffering through her own health issues, she was drawn to finding natural ways to treat the body.
“I got diagnostic tests and didn’t like what they told me,” she said. “After $10,000, they wanted to put me on antidepressants. With 3 small children, that wasn’t the way I wanted to go. I was homeschooling my children and supporting my husband, but I knew I could change what I was putting into the body.”
Last April, Menzel completed a dual-degree certification to receive her doctor of naturopathy diploma, as well as her degree in nutritional counseling. She opened Energetic Wellness soon after, and is now working toward becoming board certified.
“I love what I do, it’s a passion. I’ve seen what it’s done for my own life and my own health. I no longer have the symptoms I used to have. My 40’s have been better than my 30’s,” she said.
Located at 501 East 15th Street, Energetic Wellness offers infrared sauna, raindrop therapy with light touch massage and body balance foot baths. The Vitamin D with Collagen tanning bed is a natural alternative to direct sunlight.
Initial appointments can be up to 3 hours because she enjoys building trust with local residents, and listening to their health concerns. “We go over health history, my seven laws of wellness and I share with them a natural lifestyle, as well as why their body is having symptoms,” she said. “I use the spectrovision to see what’s going on inside the body energetically. I want to see a balance of the organs and from there, I can see what’s unbalanced to create their plan for energy and balanced living.”
Her love for homegrown nutrition stocks their shelves with local farm-raised products. “Let our food be our medicine and our medicine be our food,” is her personal motto. “I recommend whole food supplementation. If it’s from a food source, the body knows what to do with it. So everything I have in the store is from a plant, animal or mineral.”
Menzel enjoys educating people about how to get back to natural living. “I want to help people realize the body was made so perfect that all we need to do is to get back to supporting it,” she said.
Her free educational classes are offered on the second and fourth Friday every month from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Call 359-1245 to reserve your spot among the limited seating for the August 13th class on “Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” or the August 27th class on “German New Medicine – Virus Mania.” Visit www.energeticwellnessok.com for more information.
