Marcus’s history of healing began when, at just five years of age, he and his brother found their father face-down and unresponsive in bed. Medical reports later cited a cyst in his father’s right temporal lobe.
Thereafter in childhood, Marcus was quiet and apathetic, aside from occasional outbursts of anger and bouts of depression. Without a positive father figure, Marcus careened down a dangerous path of misconduct that included bingeing on unhealthy food and abuse of alcohol and hard drugs. After close calls with serious injury, unpleasant encounters with law enforcement, and narrowly escaping incarceration, he hit rock bottom. In hindsight, he now views this as good fortune because he had nowhere to turn but the opposite direction—up!
Providentially, it was around this time that Marcus became aware that, simply by adopting a whole-food, plant-based diet after surgery, an aunt put endometrial cancer into permanent remission, and a grandmother put breast cancer into permanent remission. This new knowledge sparked his curiosity and kindled his inspiration to research evolving paradigms in healing.
Soon, Marcus was treating himself as his first client, testing—and proving—the life-changing benefits of consuming a plant-based diet. Once his nutrition was on an upward trajectory, Marcus changed employment to parallel his unquenchable thirst for knowledge about healing. It was as a posture rehabilitation technician for a chiropractic group that Marcus first learned of The Tolman Method and the use of fasting to facilitate healing. Marcus enrolled in Tolman Health Coach Training and received his certificate of course completion in 2021.
Marcus is walking testimony that a polar shift in attitude and physical health is possible, in a relatively short period of time, simply by changing lifestyle choices. Marcus now enjoys perpetual reinforcement and gratification via the successes he leads others to have in self-healing.
His latest wellness venture is becoming a doctor of chiropractic. He is enrolled at Life Chiropractic College West in Northern California.
