In my 20’s I worked as an STNA for several years while going to college. There was an incident with at patient where I hurt my back and wanted an all natural alternative as well as the desire to find a profession where I could avoid the use of pharmaceuticals and still help patients with debilitating pain. I witnessed patients in these facilities which I worked and felt there had to be a better approach at health care.
