Debra L. Crandall, RN graduated from the St. John's Hospital nursing school in 1976. Her class was the last to graduate from the school. It was also the end of a time when nursing was about people instead of process. Debi carried the lessons of hospital corners and back rubs with her into her career.
She worked in many areas of nursing, including Cardiac Critical Care, before settling into hospice and home health. Along the way she studied naturopathic medicine and nutrition. This venue and these fields, along with her allopathic background allows her to practice nursing that her teachers at St. John's would be proud of. Compassionate, personal involvement with the patient and their family is enhanced by education in nutrition, warning signs, and effective self-care. She knows that changing a wound dressing will not lead to full recovery without a holistic approach to health and the active, informed participation of the patient.
Debi has expanded her practice to include a weight loss clinic. After battling her own weight problem for years, her research led her to Ideal Protein. This program confirmed what she knew--that sugar is a major contributor to the biggest health problem in America: Obesity. Debi lost sixty pounds, gained health and vitality and is now helping others to do the same. Her honest desire to help people and her knowledge of health and nutrition are a perfect fit for this new addition to her nursing practice.*
Her company, Doxa Radiant Health, provides weight loss counseling and private nursing services, including medication management, body wraps, ear candling, and aromatherapy.
