After opening her business she achieved a degree in Applied Educational Neuroscience from Butler University. She is currently a Certified Natural Health Professional working toward becoming a Traditional Naturopath. Her journey to holistic health has been gradual over the course of her life. She found that as she grew older, traditional medicines and antibiotics not only didn’t work for her anymore, but were actually making her feel worse. She decided to pursue alternative forms of medicine to benefit her health. Herbs, meditation, and other natural approaches to health worked and allowed her to improve her health. This alternative approach didn’t have the side effects involved in taking antibiotics. Her business is a reflection of who she is; each and every part. She wants to share with the world her philosophies and beliefs on natural healing, as well as give back to those in need.
Outside the business, she is a mother of four amazing children: Connor, Olivia, Charlize and Trinity. She is also a mom to her two rescue dogs: Barkley and Finn.
Leah Wilson | Stand For Health Freedom | Panelist
Leah Wilson is the Executive Director & Co-founder of Stand For Health Freedom. An attorney with a background in complex litigation and advocacy, Leah Wilson is passionate about children’s health and has researched and worked on child welfare issues for more than a decade.
The overmedication of children in foster care as a form of behavior management is what compelled Leah to become an advocate and foster parent. Through her involvement in law, health and the foster care system, it became abundantly clear to Leah that the single most important issue affecting child welfare in the United States is the practice of one-size-fits-all medicine via medical mandates. This motivated Leah to expand her advocacy beyond foster care to all children nationwide and to start Stand for Health Freedom (SHF) in 2019.
A graduate of the Saint Louis University School of Law, Leah holds dual bachelor degrees in political science and Spanish from Indiana University. In addition to her advocacy work with SHF, Leah is the owner and former operations director of MaxLiving Indy, one of the largest natural health centers in the Midwest.
