Mary Ruddick is the owner of Enable Your Healing and the Director of Nutrition at Alive Holistic Clinic in Eugene, OR.  She sees clients in Eugene Oregon and throughout the world.

For a full description of her healing journey please visit Twelve Years, Dozen Diseases, and One Sweet Victory .

In 2000 Mary became severely ill with several life-altering diseases. She saw numerous doctors and was diagnosed with more than a dozen conditions, most of which would not respond to medical treatment.

She found medical journals and the library to be a wonderful resource and discovered how the human body, when properly nourished, is highly resilient to most ailments. She spent her days reading, researching, and learning while subjecting herself to many different diets, supplements, and nutrition plans. She began accumulating a lot of experience while finding out how each diet worked.

Mary healed herself when she found the right combination of diets that worked.  Her doctors were shocked with her results and promptly celebrated.

After recovering and realizing she could help others she studied nutrition formally and became a Certified Nutritional Counselor with a unique empathy for other people like her.  Now it is her life-long, driving passion and profession to help others achieve good health.

Mary’s Philosophy

“In its natural state, your body is free of diseases and ailments. It  is naturally is able to resist most diseases and maintain a state we call “good health”.

Proper nutrition is the foundation for good health, and malnutrition is the primary cause for most ill health ailments.

Her goal is to help you attain a state of good health through proper nutrition and healthy lifestyles.  You are invited to read the Examples to see how Mary’s clients have achieved good health.”
