Debbie Engelmann

Debbie Engelmann, Doctor of Natural Health and owner of Created by Nature Wellness, LLC, in Burnsville, is a contributing author of the bestselling Heart to Heart: The Path to Wellness book, created by Älska Publishing.

Engelmann’s chapter, “Falling Into The Garden of Healing,” is the story of her plunge into deep depression and anger following the deaths of both her sisters months apart. By allowing herself to lose control, she grew from her personal grief and found her way back to wellness to become a healer herself. Engelmann shares, on a daily basis, her focus is on “ways to help others learn how to solve the greatest mystery of all—ways to love self in order to heal self.”

Writing the contributing chapter helped her not only affirm the events of her own healing, but also to recognize how fulfilling getting the message out to the world that we can all heal has become.

“We are all very diverse in how we heal, and the healing stories of how others heal themselves teach everyone that healing can happen—even to them,” says Engelmann.

The Heart to Heart book series features a collection of inspirational stories from some of the world’s most influential teachers in the field of personal development as well as contributions from self-help veterans and New York Times bestselling authors. Älska Publishing has experienced bestselling paperback sales despite the dire state of the current book market.
