WAMJ DB Radio with Janice C Miller
Guest, Dr. Gayle Young and Laketa M. Smith
Laketa M. Smith - An Advocate. A Mentor. A Bella. Laketa is a proud native of New Orleans, Louisiana. She was raised by her grandparents, Anthony & Irma V. Smith whom she gives credit to for her confidence, strength and wisdom. Laketa’s grandparents planted the seed of having compassionate and loyal traits towards humanity. Growing up in the nineties, Laketa was very active with organizing along side her grandparents for human rights, crime reduction, prison ministries, criminal justice reform, financial literacy and racial disparities statewide. Laketa was an active and talented child, she fell in love with music and poetry. She learned to play the flute, violin, published her first book of poems with her aunt at eight years old, and obtained a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. Laketa’s beautiful childhood was disrupted by the sudden death of her grandmother and family matriarch in 1997.

Hi, I am Gayle Young, NMP, QRA, JD, a Holistic Wellness Practitioner, and Health Strategist. I am the creator and owner of Laughter in Your Belly Wellness in Baton Rouge, LA. Laughter in Your Belly is a teaching healing and health teaching ministry, as well as a holistic clinical practice. My entire focus is on assisting my clients in healing and healing strong. The goal is always a rapid shift to health. I am serious about healing; that is why I walk in healing and live a life submitted to making my actions lineup with what heals the body, soul, and mind.
As a holistic health THRIVER who has overcome a brain tumor, lupus, fibromyalgia, liver and heart failure, Hashimotos thyroid disease, depression, undiagnosed celiac disease and being bedridden for 3 years, and have been on 22 medications, working with 15 doctors and never being able to heal, I turned to nature and God and I am here today as a living testimony that a healed, holistic lifestyle is the cure for all diseases and discomforts.
What changed for me was prayer and learning to understand God’s will for her life and my health. I chose not to return full-time to law, but to further my studies in nutrition and wellness. I am a certified wellness practitioner in several holistic modalities of healing: food, nutrition, nutritional healing, detoxification, cleansing, emotional repolarization, and several forms of testing to determine imbalances in the body, both physical and emotional. Daily, I use my failures, illnesses, and gifts to help others overcome their dis-eases.
I am also the Baton Rouge Group Leader for the national non-profit “HealingStrong.” HealingStrong supports independently run community groups that are empowered by HealingStrong curriculum and support. Our mission is to connect, support, and educate individuals facing cancer and other diseases with holistic, evidence-based non-toxic therapies.
In my own HealingStrong group and wellness practice, I share that CANCER is not a disease; but rather a healing mechanism calling us to cherish life and nurture ourselves back to health. And, that we do not have diseases, but rather, dis-eases. I see diseases causing havoc in other lives because of lack of love, laughter, a sense of purpose, a vision, and a well-defined life mission; anchored by unforgiveness, emotional baggage, reluctance, fear of changing, attachments to unhealthy foods, and complacency.
