About My Guest

My guest for this episode is Dr. Eva Detko.  Eva Detko, PhD is a natural health specialist, writer, and podcaster including hosting the recent summit “The Mind, Body, and Vagus Nerve Connection”.  Her training in the field of human physiology and nutritional sciences is extensive and includes a doctorate in Physiology, Biochemistry, and Nutrition as well as a Master of Science in Human Nutrition.  She is trained in clinical and medical hypnotherapy and is a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Psychology.  Dr. Eva  specializes in working with psycho-energetic and emotional root causes of chronic illness.  As a child, she was weak and vulnerable as the result of her mother’s loss of her sister during a pregnancy; leading to physical and emotional struggles which were exacerbated by bullying and abuse.  As a protective mechanism, she tried to control everyone and everything around her and found life unenjoyable.  The trauma and stress she experienced led to a massively dysregulated autonomic nervous system, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Fibromyalgia, and Hashimoto’s.  Adopting a comprehensive approach to healing the body’s biochemistry, the mind, and the biofield (which she calls the Triage of Health), she has fully recovered her health.  Today, she is grateful for her health and her life and considers it a privilege to be able to be a part of other people’s journey to health.
