Mellissa Tovar was born and raised in a small northeastern Wisconsin town, where her family owned a small dairy farm. Although she had many fond memories of her home and family, she also had much pain and hurt held inside. Growing up with people that weren’t able or willing to understand that she was always in physical pain made her feel that she was a burden-low self- esteem and depression became a part of her life at a very young age. She wrote her first “goodbye” letter around the age of 10. At the age of 16 she was in a car accident that caused severe whiplash and whiplash associated disorders-which she is still dealing with 30 years later. After graduating high school, Mellissa went on to college and received associate degrees in accounting, business mid-management, and computerized accounting. She was a nanny, business owner, an abider for hospice, and a restitution coordinator for the WI Department of Corrections. In 2011 Mellissa moved back to the country to heal both mentally and physically. Unfortunately, it took another six years before Mellissa was able to truly start to heal her body, mind, and spirit.
After many decades of health issues, Mellissa found that she couldn’t function anymore. It was at that point that she was led to Dr. Meyer. With his help and guidance Mellissa has overcome many physical and emotional traumas. She claims that it was after their first meeting that she felt that her true health journey began. This journey has encountered many twists and turns, but she has learned so much. This journey started by learning what real health was and how she had the power to help make her life better through simple actions. She believes that learning and implementing NET, brain plasticity exercises, better nutrition, and vagus nerve therapy helped her to achieve weight loss, ease her depression, heal from traumas, and learn how to love and accept herself. “Caring for others has always been in my nature but caring and loving myself has not always been so easy. There are many days that are still challenging, and I may take three steps forward and two back, but at least I am still one step further along than yesterday. One of the most important things that Dr. Meyer gave me was hope and that is what I wish I could bring to others.”
