Joshua was born and raised in Los Angeles and has traveled extensively in over 40 countries. He first became introduced to, and began the study of, metaphysics as a young child under the mentorship of his aunt Rebecca, also a healer and intuitive. He began to study meditation in his youth through traditional Japanese Martial Arts and Zen, and later with teachers throughout the United States and India. He attended the University of Michigan, where he studied Economics and Music. After years of working in consulting, finance and the entertainment business, he felt lost and without passion. He became extremely fatigued, hypersensitive, and burnt out. He was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue, Autoimmune Thyroid, Alopecia Areata and heavy metal toxicity. When the western medical system failed to treat his imbalances, he took matters into his own hands. Through his background and a depth of continuous study in herbal medicine and the human energy system he brought his own body back into balance and radiant health. It is that gift which he is so passionate in sharing with his community and clients. Joshua Farahnik is a Clinical Herbalist and Energy Therapist.
