How We Got Started
A Space of Healing and Hope
From as early in life as she can remember, Jamie Morrow witnessed the power of holistic healing - her grandmother's prayers, hugs, and music, her Granny's daily goat milk, honey and tea, her grandfather's humor, strength, and meaningful conversations, and her parents strong work ethic, leadership, perseverance, dedication to family, and homecooked meals. Jamie knew from a young age that her life would be dedicated to loving, helping, and healing.
By 2001, Jamie graduated nursing school with honors and was a Registered Nurse working as a medical-surgical nurse for the local hospital. During this time, her young son experienced a life-threatening adverse reaction to a prescription medication. The hospital research team discovered a common genetic link in the people who experience this reaction and advised Jamie that her family should utilize prescription medication only when the benefit outweighed the risk of a life-threatening reaction. She would have to find ways to prevent and treat illness naturally, without pharmaceutical medications. This would change her life and, ultimately, her career.
In 2008, Jamie's nursing career was put on hold when she developed debilitating neuromuscular symptoms. She was expecting her youngest child, mostly bedbound, barely able to breathe on her own, and unable to care for herself or her family. She was given scary diagnoses - some terminal - and multiple prescription medications, yet, nothing seemed to help. Four weeks before her son was born, Jamie and her doctor believed she was at the end of her life. Her doctor presented her with one final effort to save her life - a Granny-shot, a Hail Mary, in the form of a raw fruit and vegetable fast with lots of good quality water and organic pomegranate juice - nothing else. Jamie agreed and went home praying for a miracle.
And, a miracle she received.
Jamie's health drastically improved and she witnessed with her own body, mind, and spirit that we have far more control over our health than most of us could even began to imagine.
In 2009, Jamie returned to work and dove into her real passion - mental health. Throughout her life, Jamie witnessed first-hand the impact of trauma, stress, exhaustion, addiction, and suicide. She was excited to pursue her true passion and felt deeply grateful for her renewed ability to care for herself and others. However, when Jamie returned to work, the neuromuscular symptoms returned. Desperate to continue in her career as a nurse, Jamie reached out to a Natural Health Doctor for the first time and, within five minutes, they knew exactly what to do. That day changed Jamie's life forever and would soon change the lives of others.
Jamie's experience with natural healthcare showed her that suffering is preventable.
Jamie began educating herself on holistic approaches to healthcare. She changed jobs to make time for holistic health education and a holistic lifestyle. She sought out highly experienced health professionals, and obtained several holistic and integrative health certifications, including Healthcare Integration, Complimentary and Alternative Medicine, Reiki, Acupuncture Detoxification (Auriculotherapy/Ear Seed Therapy), and Cupping Therapy. She prayed for God to bring more likeminded people into her life - the perfect people, at the perfect time, with the perfect intentions. God gifted Jamie with many incredible holistic mentors, and they took her under their wings.
With her newly-gained knowledge and experience, Jamie began helping her friends, family, and coworkers whenever and wherever she could. Soon, they were asking her to help their friends and loved ones. They encouraged Jamie to open a holistic health office. She was hesitant at first, as her mission was very simple - she "just wanted to help people".
Jamie felt called to do God's work, to love, to help, and to facilitate the healing of as many people as possible. She realized, to do this, she would need space and to make it official with the SBDA.
One beautiful morning, Jamie was driving through downtown St. Louis, Michigan, when she noticed a FOR RENT sign in the front window of a newly remodeled building. The location was as perfect as could be for a small town.
And, that is the short story on the birth of Health Central.
