Hi! I am

Carola Schleuss

Founder of, and a practitioner at Way of Life Matters, a wonderful place for learning about how to enjoy a natural healthy life For people and their animal friends.

My interest in healing and health were born of necessity. I felt uncomfortable, or sick, most of my childhood and teenage years. My childhood medical history was filled with medication such as antibiotics, prednisone, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 800mg and too many vaccinations. By the age of 25, still feeling terribly unwell, I realized I must learn to take care of myself. I began to see beyond my conditioned beliefs, the world opened up, life appeared brighter, and nature became, once again, my guide, my reward and my soul healer.
