Merissa has been consumed with her passion for the human potential, esoteric quantum physics and alternative healing since a small child.
Her insatiable thirst to explore all subjects related to health, healing, our inherent human potential, the essence of consciousness, Earth-based indigenous traditions, archaeology/biology/chemistry and longevity began with her early introduction to alternative medicine as a little girl. She experienced several serious auto-immune disorders, the treatment of which opened her awareness to many forms of alternative medicine including acupuncture, TCM, naturopathic/allopathic remedies, herbalism, reiki, Ayurveda, Yoga, Kundalini yoga, mantra/prayer, sound healing, shamanism, and gem therapy to name a few.
One of her favorite forms of medicine has always been food. It nourishes us body, mind, and spirit, and provides a sense of community. A Taurus who grew up in a French/Italian fusion restaurant on the Big Island, foodie-ism and shamanism have always been her roots.
Magnesium, & the Science of nutrition
Merissa is an independent food scientist and formulated the line based upon how our body assimilates nutrition at the cellular level in conjunction with how to combine ingredients to assist absorption, as well as what diseases are trending from malnutrition.
In her research starting in 2008 Merissa found many parallels in rising degenerative disorders and malnutrition, namely, a mass deficiency in magnesium. For example: MS, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Fibromyalgia, all on the rise, coinciding along with our low levels of magnesium. Cacao is the highest food source of magnesium, which is critical for cognitive and cardiac function, as well as the entire nervous system. Our neurons are MADE of magnesium, so if we are lacking, then we are misfiring and thus all these various diseases manifest.
Merissa’s Health History
During her third near-death experience at 8, she received a transmission while in the hospital and learned the root causes of illness being emotional in nature through her own health-related issues. She also received, or remembered (??), her assignment or mission in this life, which was of service. At age 8 she realized that her path was to help teach people how to both acquire and maintain their empowerment and thus optimum health through living an illumined lifestyle through self awareness and self mastery. That health and our quality of life is a choice, and we need to explore the potential of our bodies to heal. The body is a highly intelligent design intricately connected to our belief system and quality of thoughts/emotions. The body mind spirit connection is more profound than is currently widely accepted. Spontaneous healing is highly possible. This wisdom stems from many traditional branches of mysticism on a global scale including ancient technology systems and tools that are now becoming more socially acceptable as we collectively remember.
Merissa enthusiastically shares her wisdom of Ayurvedic philosophy, energetic alignment, mindfulness, love consciousness, and diet/lifestyle practices to help people take their health into their own hands. She combines her Ayurvedic education with traditional Hawaiian Huna, Shipibo cosmology, Western/Vedic/Mayan astrology, esoteric quantum physics, Kundalini and shamanic/Earth practices from all over the world, enabling her clients to de-program from old/artificial identities to experience an expansion of perception and self-awareness through their own conscious allowance/creation to actively engage in heart-centered living.
This knowledge has been condensed into Integrity Cacao as a high vibe food, an initiation to allow for an elevated perspective and more fulfilled life experience. Let’s birth a new world of consciously sustainable practices, from lifestyle, to business and commerce.
