Detailed Work History
Founder Operator of Get Whole
June 2012 | Sterling Heights, MI
In 2010 Aaron began studying medical books and healing methods in search for something that would address the physical and mental health in the people he worked with. Aaron says, “I believe that God created us and gave our bodies the ability to heal and be well apart from all the modes of healing and wellness that everyone seeks after.” In dissatisfaction of the current state of humanity, especially Christians as a whole, and after 6 years of personally trying many alternative, holistic forms of healing and finding no help he found what he believes to be the missing puzzle piece for healing and wholeness.
Aaron & Melanie, along with others offer classes that are progressive in nature, teaching people about disease, its origin, the ways we think that unknowingly sabotage our lives and how to be free of the things that cause most cancer, incurable syndromes such as lupus, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid artritis, asthma, allergies, cardiovascular diseases, mental disorders, chronic pain and digestive problems like Crohn’s and IBS.
