I am Denise Orzeck, living in Orange County, New York. Growing up in Pine Island, NY, also known as “Black Dirt Country”, I come from many generations of farmers. It was here that my philosophy of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and nutritional interconnectedness was cultivated. Being raised among the fields of fresh produce and black earth with a strong intuition for sensing others personal traumas and internal blocks since childhood, I have sought out alternative methods of healing using natural and spiritual resources in unison. Through my personal experience and application of my discoveries I found my true path and, so, my journey began.
My passion and intrinsic desire to heal and provide peace to the lost and wounded was self-actualized early in life as I was the sole caregiver of my ailing father. Always wanting to touch and lay hands to heal, it was at this time that I truly started applying nutritional and holistic methods to his care. After his passing, I took a position as a Certified Nurse Assistant and spent over 30 years in the health care industry while integrating holistic techniques, lifestyle modifications, and nutrition with a hands-on approach to attune the mind, body, and soul. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse with a career focused in Alzheimer’s and rehabilitation. It is through the process of rehabilitation that I saw the profound role nutrition, spiritual guidance, mental strength and emotional determination play in physical recovery. It was then that I began my intense study of healing the “self” through “oneness”.
I was naturally led to Young Living Essential Oils upon delving deeper into my quest to further understand and apply alternative methods of care and healing. For a decade I have used them to support my own and my family’s body systems. Throughout this experience, I felt a connection to my higher power and was driven to become ordained as a Holistic Minister Practitioner. To this day I continue to use the oils in my holistic practices: medicinal remedies, therapeutic techniques, organic nutritional guidelines, and as an herbalist and aroma-therapist.
Now having amassed the knowledge and provided optimal care for the mind, body, and spirit of countless lives originally plagued by mental and physical disorders and defects, it is my mission to teach and provide others with my personal and professional experience as a holistic minister, practitioner, and master instructor.
