The Early Years
His story begins with him being born in Guyana, South America in 1987. Mark’s lineage is very extensive. He is quarter Dutch, Black, Amerindian and East Indian. Mark grow up in Guyana and had an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by the Amazon Rain Forest and experience trees, plants and sites most of us only wish to know.

Between 2007 and 2011 Mark experienced the most changes he could have experienced. He needed a change and that’s when his journey began.
The Health Journey
In 2010, Mark weighted a healthy 160 pounds but within 1 year is was down to 118 pounds! He had some serious health issues that were depleting his muscle mass and health.
He had chronic sinus issues, digestive issues and adrenal fatigue which was causing his hair loss. There were days Mark would wake up wondering if today was his last day and if he was going to die.
He was facing his health challenges and at the same time he was facing the same life challenges we all face on a daily basis.
By the time he had hit his lowest point in 2011 he decided to seek out professional help. And that we did! He decided to seek out a team of people he felt that could get him back on track and still be true to his medical believes.
He contacted a herbalist named Dr. Terry Willard who helped Mark with his diet and stress. He started acupuncture and with his team that included his family doctor, chiropractor, masseuse and a unique German therapist that would help him deal with past ancestral issues.
