Elsa A. Cordero, MOAM, Co-Founder and Web Master
Never having settled long enough on a career or life path, Elsa discovered Martial Arts and it transformed her life. The tenets of martial arts instilled in her the discipline, dedication, and perseverance that ultimately led her to become an International and National Martial Arts Champion.
Years later when she left the martial arts industry in search of a new and meaningful career, she discovered Traditional Chinese Medicine. First as a patient battling digestive and women’s issues, and soon after as a student. From the beginning, she loved the premise of holistic medicine and its holistic approach.
A natural born teacher she now wants to share her passion and knowledge with others.
Susan L. Hartman, Contributor
Susan is a mother, wife, lawyer and passionate advocate of natural wellness. After a medical diagnosis that came with prescription medications, an order to limit physical activity and the words “you need to be more accepting of age and genetics,” she took her health into her own hands and exchanged legal journals for those focusing on health and nutrition as an alternative means of healing. She was able to relieve all of her symptoms by way of nutritional therapies and healthy lifestyle practices that include a clean whole food diet, yoga, strength training and aerobic exercise.
After several years of self-study, she enrolled in a more formal course of study through Washington State University and is now a Holistic Health Advocate. Encouraged by the changes in her own life, Susan’s focus now is to inspire others to take charge of their health and well-being and to promote natural and nutritional healing methods.
