Dr. Susan Plank’s interest in health and natural medicine was a natural development from her youth growing up on the family farm. Responsibilities on the farm included caring for the animals, helping maintain the family garden and canning. Hard work was expected and the benefits of proper nutritionand good clean food was apparent. Close family ties were instilled at an early age.
Through Dr. Plank’s life her mother, Harriet, suffered many digestive complaints, she constantly struggled to lose weight. As a child Dr. Plank can remember when her mother had her gallbladder removed and brought the gallstones home in a jar from the hospital.
Into adulthood, Dr. Plank watched as her mother suffered with lactose intolerance, allergic sinusitis, weight gain and chronic digestive issues. Harriet's irritable bowel syndrome, caused terrible abdominal pain, bloating and would frequently inhibit her socializing with friends. Her mother frequently visited doctors but found no relief from her symptoms.
In 2010 Harriet was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. At that time all of Dr. Plank’s educational and life experiences culminated in attempting to beat that cancer. Harriet was treated for pancreatic cancer at Johns Hopkins hospital. Unfortunately, the chemotherapy was hard on her liver and Harriet Plank went to heaven in 2012.
Dr. Plank feels the years of unresolved digestive symptoms caused her mother's weight gain, weakened her mother’s immune system and was a factor in her developing yet another digestive issue, cancer. Dr. Plank’s passion was ignited in the years caring for her mother and she has made it her mission to help others that are suffering with weight issues and chronic digestive problems looking for a natural functional approach to regain their health and vitality.
