Rita started her Holistic spiritual path 20 years ago, as she came upon her very own medical issues,  Subacute Cutaneous Lupus, and Breast Calcium Calcification. As soon as she was diagnosed, she started her research on what type of natural healing remedies that would cure and restore her skin, emotions, mind, body, and soul back to being its vibrant self again; and she succeeded by having huge faith, and belief within herself and her connection to her infinite spirit, to make her whole again.
