ABOUT THE OWNER
I grew up in Rosenberg, Texas and went on to complete a B.B.A. in Finance from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas (formerly Southwest Texas State University). I am an avid marathoner and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
I have been passionate about health and nutrition for the last 20 years. I’ve always struggled with my health since I was a child which then culminated into adulthood health problems. Prior to being a holistic health practitioner and nutritional counselor, I had a successful sales career but the toll of being in a stressful, highly competitive industry for many years lead to additional health issues. Tired of the rat race and feeling strung out from the stress, I decided to go on a 4 1⁄2 month soul-searching backpacking trip for which I had to get a number of vaccinations to enter certain countries. Come to find out later, the vaccinations only exacerbated my existing health issues. By age 35, I was on 8 medications, could hardly get out of bed, was putting on weight, suffering from inflammation, not sleeping well, had horrible gastrointestinal problems after eating most foods, migraines, chronic fatigue, and hormonal imbalances.
For months, I visited a number of endocrinologists, thyroid specialists, gastroenterologists, internists, and urologists and was told by all of them that there was nothing wrong with me and that all of my test results were within normal ranges. After each visit I left aggravated, depressed and frustrated because I knew there was something wrong with me and I knew that how I felt wasn’t normal for a 35 year old who tried really hard to take care of herself.
My road to True Healthy Living began when I turned to alternative medicine after a recommendation from a friend and it changed my life forever – finally, I had answers! I was suffering from adrenal fatigue, underactive thyroid which then lead to Hashimoto’s (autoimmune disorder), heavy metal toxicity, candida yeast overgrowth, and a parasite infection. My suspicions were confirmed: the stress from my former career and the vaccinations had affected my hormones and had severely suppressed my immune system.
I felt empowered because I finally had answers and had a game plan to heal my body. My health practitioners explained to me that I could get past this and my body could heal itself. That is when I learned about a holistic approach to health: getting healthy and healing the body is a combination of work on the mind, body, spirit, and most importantly nutrition.
During my road to recovery, I realized what my purpose is: to share my story and knowledge with others to help improve their quality of life and to understand you can naturally heal the body from any ailments.

Living healthy throughout our lives is something we all want. Your genes, doctors, and nutritional norms don’t provide a good road map for healthy living.
Wendy Reeves takes a different approach; individual, holistic and natural. I lost 40 pounds, my Lymphedema is gone and now have a light-filled life. By following Wendy’s guidance and protocol, I eliminated dairy, grains and sugar with ease because I had no cravings for them. I now grocery shop and cook smart. When socializing I make the best choices and enjoy. February 2019.
I started working with Wendy after spending several years competing in triathlons and marathons – I was frustrated with my inability to recover after training sessions and my overall stamina. Wendy conducted a full evaluation and recommended a number of supplements. In addition, Wendy educated me around the real contents of many ‘healthy’ food items, leading me to convert to a chemical free, organic diet. After several months working with Wendy I found my quality of sleep, overall health and training stamina/recovery was vastly improved. I subsequently ran the Houston marathon and beat my personal best by nearly 10 minutes. I highly recommend the nutritional and natural health services offered by THL.
I’ve loved working with Wendy to restore my body to health. Her approach correctly dealt with my condition after 18 months of illness and visits to several other doctors. I was dealing with severe fatigue, my illness was affecting my sleep and impaired my ability to work full time or exercise regularly. I had been incorrectly diagnosed with chronic fatigue and sleep apnea by my doctor.
Wendy is a very caring practitioner and she truly listens to you. Her approach was very thorough and was end-to-end. I had a strong desire to learn more about how to heal my body and I have learned so much from Wendy – she always has time for my questions. I am much more in tune with my body’s signals and I look at my health in a new way. Working with Wendy has been transformative!
