Razi Berry: Matters of the Heart
Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you love Valentine’s Day or not, I just want to start by saying I love all of you, my listeners. Words cannot express how happy I am to be here with another guest that I love, Razi Berry, my soul sister.
Journal of Naturopathic Doctor News & Review
Razi is actually a bigger fan of Naturopathic Medicine than I am. Razi Berry founded the Journal of Naturopathic Doctor News & Review. When I heard about that, I went to Dr. Megan Saunders who most of you know because of my past interview with her. Dr. Saunders apparently has heard of the Journal and affirmed it as a very well-respected Naturopathic Journal.
Razi Berry says only Naturopaths are allowed to contribute to the Journal. I’ll be providing the link to the journal below this blog post. She also realized that a lot of people reading it are also laymen, not doctors like you and me who want to learn more about Naturopaths. Because of this, she created another website (link is below this blogpost) with articles about Naturopathic Medicine.
And because it is Valentine’s Day, we’re going to talk about the events that you are going to be signing up for. It’s free and Razi Berry has gathered the top experts from around the world for the 8-day online event. There will be over 60 experts at The Heart Revolution. They will teach you how to heal and empower your heart physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. That’s what Natural Medicine is all about.
Heart Failure at 14 Years Old
“For many of us it’s a journey. My journey started when I was 14 years old. I was dying in the hospital with heart failure. It was due to a complication of an eating disorder,” shares Razi Berry.
Razi Jerry further narrates, the culture was different back then. She remembers the hospital staff had a disdain for my case. They made it sound like it was my fault. Hence, I had a feeling of shame.
“It was so bad that my family brought in a Catholic priest to administer the last rites. Shortly after that, my mom brought in my then 4-year-old brother to say goodbye. I remember my out of body experience and the feeling of suddenly surrounded by the feeling of overwhelming love,” recalls Razi.
She said that although the experience was hard to describe in detail, she instantly healed. Eventually, Razi Berry left the hospital on zero medications.
“I did become much more sensitive to that intuitive center of our heart. From such a young age I came to understand this concept that we call ‘mind, body, medicine’. That our heart, mind, spiritual self and body really aren’t separate,” Berry said.
From then on, Razi Berry grew up constantly searching for that experience again. Hence, she got really immersed in religion. That was just one piece of her healing journey.
“In my mid-20s, I was a real estate agent and making good money. An then I crashed and burned. No doctor could offer any help. I even went to the Mayo Clinic,” said Berry.
Later on, Razi Berry eventually found out she had Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. But she refused to take some of the medicines for her illness because it was so strong.
A psychiatrist was then referred to her who said her illness was just in her mind. Another one told her she should just go on disability. That terrified Berry.
Finding A Naturopathic Doctor
After that, she went to a Naturopathic Doctor but it was the turning point. Berry said that doctor really took time to know everything she felt. She also said felt her doctor was really putting pieces together on what was happening to her body.
“She thought of testing me for solvents. I also went through detoxification and elimination diet and eventually got better,” said Berry.
When I lost my parents, I felt my heart was breaking in two. My father in particular, died of heart failure. I almost was hospitalized because of the grief. It’s amazing how an emotional event can stimulate this cascade of physical response to events.
A Baby Is Born
“Then I got married but I had 5 miscarriages in 6 years. We couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I refused conventional methods to conceive. So to keep my mind on something else, I thought of coming out with the Journal of Naturopathic Doctor News & Review,” said Berry.
Shortly after that, she resolved to quit her old job and focus on building up her Journal. That’s when Berry finally became pregnant. Twenty months later, she was pregnant with her second daughter.
I also love that Razi Berry even chose to homeschool her two daughters. I have a 22-month-old son but we don’t do daycare. My husband and I basically juggle our son. We really do take our time to teach him at his level.
“It just works better when you work from home. That way, I can work and then juggle it with homeschooling the kids. I don’t think it’s for everyone,” Berry said.
Shedding the Old Belief
We have to shed the old belief system. Stop seeing the world in black and white. I’m not saying vaccines are bad. Rather I encourage people to see the facts surrounding Naturopathic Medicine.
The Natural Path is a beautiful resource of Naturopathic Doctors. They share ways to heal and ways to prevent different diseases using principles of Naturopathic Medicine.
The Heart Revolution
“My journey began with my heart. Heart disease is the leading cause of death of men and women,” said Berry.
I can so relate to Berry’s passion. I was 22 years old when I lost my mom and 28 years old when I lost my dad.
My mom died in her 50’s and my dad died in his early 60’s. He died of a broken heart. I use that as my fuel to do what I do because I want to help people save their parents and themselves, too.
Research shows that the heart transmits information to the whole body and to our brains. So when we say somebody dies of grief, broken heart or loneliness, we’re not being poetic. And that is the reason for The Heart Revolution.
Berry said, “There’s more to heart disease than fats, oil, cholesterol and pumping blood to your body. We have doctors in The Heart Revolution who can educate you on heart disease.”
“If we just learn to take care of our bodies, connect with nature and really live inside our bodies, feel our emotions, that’s where healings really happen,” adds Berry.
