I first noticed her at an event, where she was a speaker. Nkem Ezeilo didn’t look like your typical doctor; she even broke into song! When I heard what she had to say and the fact that she didn’t push pills, I thought, “That is definitely different!”
So, I looked up her work, and when “Memo From A Fearless Storyteller” was launched, it just made sense to feature her in “Black Power” …
Name: Dr. Nkem Ezeilo
Best Known For: Healthy Lifestyle Advocacy as a way of reversing disease and improving quality of life./ The 10 Pillars of A Healthy Life
Describe yourself in three words: Passionate, authentic, fun-loving.
Previous occupation: General Practitioner (still am)
12-month goal: Oh, I have a number of those. In 12 months, I’d like to have started a Healing Support Foundation to provide support, encouragement, motivation and guidance for people in need of healing – regardless of what they’ve been diagnosed with. I want to be able to help them, without charging them a penny for it. I’d also like to be able to send them to Sanoviv Health Retreat in Mexico, for immersion in the 10 Pillars of Health. And I’d like to have become a best-selling author as a result of having my message impacting millions around the globe.
Describe your outlook and what makes your work, unique: I believe that “Mind over Matter” is very real and that the body can heal itself once it’s equipped with the right tools – mentally, emotionally, physically and socially.
Your greatest career achievement to date: Developing the 10 Pillars Framework and successfully using it to reverse chronic degenerative diseases including Diabetes, Hypertension, Obesity and now, Cancer.
On the importance of international appeal: The message I share can save many from untimely deaths and improve many people’s quality of life. So, international appeal would mean that message is reaching and hopefully helping, many people in many nations.
Most important piece of equipment you use in your career: My heart.
A typical day for you is: My day includes working with clients, associates and prospects; studying; working out; eating healthy meals and snacks; and relaxing.
What legacy would you like to leave? The knowledge and conviction that you can change your life by changing your thought pattern first, then backing up with congruent action.
What is the hardest career decision you’ve ever had to make? None. Knowing my values and goals makes decisions easy.
Your biggest career mistake: Not starting out earlier.
Most common, yet avoidable mistake you see in younger people in your career: Not caring about the people they’re meant to serve, but thinking only of “Money, money money”. Genuinely caring about others should be priority. The money will follow; it always does.
Single piece of advice you give your mentees: That depends on their goal. But generally, I’d say “You must genuinely love and care about people in order to experience real job satisfaction and attract the goals you seek.”
