Healing Through Education, Not Medication:
DrFostersEssentials.com is an educational company dedicated to the ideals of uplifting people's health through educations, empowerment, inspiration, and compassion. Through educating about the so-called mysterious workings of the body and causes of ill health, we aim to dispel fears about pain, dying and disease. Through this knowledge, we hope that others are enabled to act, not through fear based on ignorance of how the body works, but through courage.
Helping People To Achieve Long-Lasting Healing:
Modern Medicine, although very useful for many acute health crises has not demonstrated much success with healing chronic or severe diseases. While medications may have a dramatic effect of relieving symptoms, the disease is still there. We encourage people to find the root cause of health complaints in order to achieve long-lasting healing. Reversing the root cause of a disease can take longer than simply the amount of time it took to suppress the symptoms with strong medications. However, we believe that if a state of ill health can be created in the body through unhealthy living habits, then with persistence, it can also be reversed. By providing the body with the proper diet, lifestyle, and positive emotional environment, we can encourage the body to repair itself and heal from many diseases that are normally considered incurable.
Helping to Distinguish Between Effective Methods and Quackery:
We encourage natural methods that support your empowerment, sense of responsibility, and your dignity as a human being, while discouraging the use of extreme and unscientific methods and remedies such as long water fasts, extreme diets, weight loss hype, miracle "cure-alls," and chemical-based supplements. Our experience is that usually health challenges are influenced by many factors including improper food choices, inadequate exercise, high stress lifestyle, inadequate rest, smoking, alcoholic beverages, pollution, malnutrition and toxicity. Because of this, simply one natural healing method is many times not enough. Where individual herbs or methods fail, Dr. Foster has found that a combination of many methods such as herbal cleansing programs, aromatherapy, juice flushing, exercising, and emotional healing methods, used together frequently results in success. This is far more effective than taking a single herb and hoping for the best.
Empowering Everyone To Heal Themselves:
Our goal is to empower others, through knowledge, to become confident in their ability to heal themselves safely and naturally so that they may take their health concerns into their own hands if they wish. We also firmly believe that each and every person has the inalienable right to choose any safe healing method available to heal the body, mind and spirit.
Protecting People From The Most Dangerous Medications:
For the benefit of your health, we have also included on this website dangerous conventional medications, medical procedures, techniques and other methods which carry unusually high risks or the risk of death.

Foster's Personal Healing Story:
She began her formal medical studies in 1992 with the desire to become a radiologist. However, during her first year of medical training, she fell ill with life-threatening seizures, severe chest pains, asthma, migraines, and a thyroid condition. After exhaustive consultations for the epilepsy, her many doctors were unable to provide a correct diagnosis. This caused her doctors to give the wrong treatment from the misdiagnosis. This worsened her condition, leading to extreme pain and disability. Her suffering led her to look into alternative methods, including natural healing. Hopeful for a cure, yet too weak to stand for many hours out of the day, Dr. Foster did NOT drop out of medical school. She continued her medical studies on the floor of her residence.
At this time, she abandoned all medications because they were ineffective and only made her condition worse. She tried many natural methods at first. Natural Hygiene and dietary methods failed. Proper food combining failed. Herbs from the health food store failed. Water fasting failed. Finally, with the help of a registered nurse using holistic therapies to detoxify the body, she was able to improve her health over the next year and a half and press on with her medical training. After suffering from daily seizures for over three years, she underwent a very strong herbal detoxification program which resulted in a complete cessation of the epileptic seizures in three months. Over eight years later, she continues to be healthy with no return of her previous health problems. This experience resulted in her first book Stop The Medicine!
Upon her graduation from medical school, Dr. Foster had begun to realize the enormous potential of natural healing. She had personally seen so many people with "incurable" and terminal conditions healed naturally at the holistic nurse's office that she could no longer deny its effectiveness. She then went on to further her herbal and natural healing studies with other natural health practitioners - some of whose programs were designed specifically for "incurable" conditions.
Through her extensive experiences with natural healers, as well as her intense personal experiences, she has become extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and herbs - unlike most holistic medical doctors. She undertook and completed a 63-Day Juice Fast to prove that it was possible for people to juice fast for long periods of time. Having the unique advantage of having received a medical education, she is able to use scientific principles as a basis for her understanding of natural healing methods.
True to her teachings, she follows her own advice, dietary recommendations and takes only her own products. Because her methods are so effective, she has not needed to take any conventional medications or even so much as an antibiotic for over 11 years. She is in the unique position of knowing both medicine and natural healing. Her medical background lends more credibility to the herbal and natural healing field.
