Sia Alexander: Heal Love NowInspired by Ashok Gupta’s free brain retraining videos and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and incorporating her own brand of deep spirituality, Planet Thrive member Sia Alexander devised her own creative visualization technique for retraining her brain around chemical reactions. She shares her approach in detail in her article My DIY brain retraining visualizations for MCS. Sia’s routine includes full body movement, verbal cues, tapping on acupuncture meridian points, positive affirmations, deep visualization techniques, and a healthy dose of spirituality and belief.

An artist, writer, model and graduate of Howard University, Sia shares about her recovery journey on her blog Heal Love Now. Brain retraining was just one aspect of healing for Sia. She also found great improvement through diet, yoga, water fasting, prayer and other lifestyle choices. Be inspired by her message – read her book I AM: You Power This Life.


  • Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.

In the spring of 2011, I was the sickest I had ever been. I had recently moved across the country to the southwest in search of housing I could tolerate. For the past three and a half years, I had found no places I could tolerate and had lived in semi-homeless situations.
