Heather Torbert is the mother of Lisa Torbert, the owner of Heather's Holistic Health. She died at the age of 66 from diabetes. Her many talents included art, music and writing. In addition to these, Heather passed on to Lisa some endearing qualities such as the ability to love and care about people, to give everything you have, accept people for who they are, help people to get through tough times, and a good sense of humor whenever possible. Heather's life was not easy, as she became addicted to drugs and alcohol in her twenties. She also suffered with depression most of her life. At the age of forty, after years of trying, she finally was able to "kick the habit" of drugs and alcohol forever. She was a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and celebrated 27 years of sobriety. However, she substituted into some very unhealthy "other addictions" such as smoking, caffeine and food addictions (chocolate, sugar and carbohydrates).
Lisa Torbert writes:
"I am so proud to be so much like my mom, having inherited so many of her wonderful talents. She had a profound effect on my life because of her life long struggles with addictions and depression.
Heather gave Lisa the incredible gift of ambition and desire to take a chance, make a change, and offer a new way to help people achieve optimal health. Thanks to Heather, we are able to offer a touch of heaven to everyone that visits our center.
