Gerard Powell is the personification of the American success story who realized, as do many people in his position, that money does not necessarily buy happiness. Instead, he opted to try anything available to hide from himself and his “perfect” life. Most of his existence he suffered from addiction and depression, incessantly trying to fill the hole deep within with little or no success. Ultimately, after much trial and error, he found that manifesting the truth of who you are and becoming your authentic self is true success and happiness and he was able to rid himself of the demons within and live a happy, healthy, sober and full life. ?He is the founder of Rythmia Life Advancement Center in Cost Rica, the only medically licensed plant medicine center in the world.
