At the age of 16, she participated in a special state program for gifted teenagers where she studied quantum physics. Currently she lives in the Los Angeles area where she has taught Western Medical
Pharmacology, Medical Terminology, Internal Medicine, and Diagnostic Laboratory Tests
at the prestigious acupuncture college Dongguk Royal University.
She is a registered, certified yoga instructor as well as an accomplished concert pianist. She provided individual

doctor, she is one of only a handful of conventionally trained
doctors in the country who successfully uses purely natural
methods yet does not practice conventional medicine. Her hospital
and emergency room training has enabled her to handle severe and
acute diseases. This background gives her the unique ability
and understanding to deal with severe diseases using purely natural
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
, 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. We will add new information continually, so please bookmark

session. We will also provide additional useful information
about various other health products which have been clinically
and scientifically proven to be effective.
Remember that knowledge is power. Knowledge applied and put into
practice may lead to marvelous results!
"I will follow that system of regimen which, according to my
ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients,
and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous.
I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest
any such counsel..."
Foster's Natural Healing From Epilepsy, etc.:
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.
