  • Let’s start with the basics.  What is Lyme disease, and how can you contract it?
  • Personally I only think about ticks and Lyme disease in the summer because that’s when I spend the most time outdoors, do we only have to worry about Lyme disease in the summer?
  • What is Pure Solutions doing to help?
  • Typically when companies try to protect against insects, there is a harmful effect on the environment from toxins. How is Pure Solutions’ different?

Katrina is an author, Founder of Health Mastery Retreat, Holistic Nutritionist, Acupuncturist, Detox Specialist, Public Speaker, and a Health Coach. Katrina is also a Yoga and Fitness Instructor, Tennis Player, and a Model. After being undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and finally diagnosed with Lyme disease, Katrina realized that Western Medicine had failed her and medical doctors had no clue how to treat Lyme and other degenerative diseases. She rejected the tag of “incurable” that was put on her, so she began researching and trying practically all kinds of alternative treatments known to man.

Since her recovery, Katrina continues to research holistic medicine and drug-free treatments. She travels the world to meet and learn from healers, holistic doctors, health coaches, and real patients who cured their “incurable” diseases. Katrina helps people to reverse chronic illnesses by offering guidance with drug-free treatments at her Health Mastery Retreat.
