For 31 years I have pastored The Way Christian Church in uptown New Orleans and am the owner, along with my wife, of  WH2OLE Water (your Alkaline water source). Recently I completed my certification as a Food Over Medicine Coach, Consultant and Instructor. It is with great passion and determination that I share simple solutions to everyday chronic illnesses to eliminate the need for medication.  Change your water to change your mind and eat all the medicine you can because they both go together to make us whole. So as the conversation continues, we’ll talk about proper hydration and how we can stop, reverse and prevent disease by choosing food over medicine.
