Several years later, she relocated to California to establish the Santa Monica Wellness Center, one of the most successful holistic health centers in the country. She has provided patients with natural and nontoxic treatments to aid in various health challenges for over 15 years and the incredible success was the inspiration for her best-selling book, The Detox Solution: The Missing Link To Radiant Health, Abundant Energy, Ideal Weight And Peace Of Mind.
In over 15 years of practice, Dr. Fitzgerald has noticed the important role detoxification plays in improving health and the outcomes of chronic diseases. She also has observed common misconceptions about detoxification, such as the use of fad cleansing programs, and set out to clear up the confusion and create a book to explain safe cleansing and back up everything with medical references. Her book is considered the “Bible of Detox,” as it deals with every issue pertaining to safe detoxification, as well as various clinical protocols. It also details how toxins contribute to almost every type of illness, from asthma to allergies, cancer to heart disease, diabetes and depression to attention deficit disorder.
Dr. Fitzerald is engaging, energetic, and entertaining, as well as informative. Audiences are often touched by her dedication to health care, which started as she had an early interest, since childhood, in nutrition, herbs and natural healing. She is a role model for health, she practices what she preaches, and is vibrant and enthusiastic.
She will speak on The Detox Solution – Self-Help For Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease & The Immune System.
