Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Todd Stone, Owner of True Health Family Wellness Center, located in Asheville, NC, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I run a functional medicine, eastern medicine healing practice, which focuses on finding the root cause of chronic problems and using hands-on healing touch practices to heal acute problems. My customers are anyone with a health problem they would like to resolve and see the wisdom in the healing of Nature.
Tell us about yourself
I was very naturally drawn to caretaking, perhaps influenced by my own health weaknesses, having had my spleen removed as an infant. That left me immune-compromised and hypersensitive, so I struggled with frequent infections and allergies. Fifteen years into my healing practice, I faced the same condition, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia, that nearly took my life as a baby. We resolved this condition in a matter of weeks, gently and naturally.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Helping little girls and boys. I've resolved seizures, JRA causing a little girl to live in a wheelchair, and another little girl with optic nerve atrophy, which means blind. She slowly recovered her sight, despite western doctors insisting she would never see. So, technically, I have helped the blind to see.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The biggest bully in the world, Big Pharma, slanders and undermines natural healing in some version of toxic masculinity and capitalism.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Follow your heart to your passion. Speak your heart with conviction, and share value.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
All the social links you include do not show natural perspectives anymore. In 2018, both google and meta stopped showing natural, so your information is being limited to the wealthiest narrative, Big Medicine, and big business. So I'd prefer to share my TikTok.
Where can people find you and your business?
