    Dr. Jackie McKool has been passionate about wholistic health and wellness since God delivered her in 1996 from an addiction to alcohol and the whole bar life. He pulled her out of the miry clay and set her feet on a new path—a wholistic path of health and healing. She believes with all her heart and soul that God has called her to speak, teach, and write with the purpose of glorifying Him.
    Dr. McKool spent 10 years in the wholistic health and wellness field as a chiropractic physician in Charleston, South Carolina. She has her post-doctorate in Internal Disorders, which is similar to a doctor of natural medicine. Dr. McKool is one of less than 500 worldwide board-certified Chiropractic Internists with a focus on Internal Disorders. Upon moving to North Carolina, she worked in the natural products industry in several health food stores for three years.
    Dr. Jackie has served as a trained minister for several Christian healing ministries, including Cleansing Stream founded by Pastor Jack Hayford, and the International Healing Rooms Ministries founded by Rev. Cal Pierce. She has also studied under Dr. Mark Virkler, founder of Christian Leadership University and Communion With God Ministries. Dr. Virkler is also the author of “How to Hear God’s Voice.”
    In addition to holistic health and wellness, Dr. Jackie loves being in God’s creation outdoors. She claims she was “born to be outside!” She loves jogging, hiking, biking, kayaking, and most of all backpacking. To date she has completed over 2,000 miles backpacking on the Appalachian Trail (AT), with less than 115 miles to go to finish the entire 2,190+ mile trail. Her goal is to complete the Trail in its entirety by 2024 when she will be 65 years old. Look for her next book that is already brewing pertaining to her adventures on the AT!
    She lives in western North Carolina with her fur baby cat KoKo.

A Much -Needed Reminder!❤️

Amen! to this episode! I am so grateful to hear it. So very sorry to hear about your Mither-in-Law. Thankfully, Carol has a loving family to make her last days brighter. I am my Mom’s advocate and full-time caregiver, and it has been a great blessing in my life! My Mom promised my Dad years ago, and I promised her, that we would never put our loved one in a facility again. My Grandmother was in a nursing home years ago. We must care for our elderly, and show them the love of CHRIST! Again, thank you! May the LORD bless you, and your family in every way!❤️
