Esther Yang: My Story

All the products, classes, and healing sessions on this website were created after overcoming my sorrows and challenges, but also from my eureka moments like the skincare line, recipes, and secret sauce. I have made so many mistakes and learned so many lessons that I can pass on to you, so you don’t have to repeat my mistakes.

Simple Healthy Living was born during one of the most painful periods in my life. I watched as my adoptive father Harry died of esophagus cancer and I could do nothing. I lost my greatest support in my life.  Soon after, two of my good friends died of AIDS, and yet again, I couldn’t help. Feeling lost and desperate after burying my father and friends, I vowed to learn how to help people live better and heal themselves.

I was in a rough place. I searched for answers and anything to comfort my soul. I read two books a week, took classes and workshops, and studied anatomy, movement, and yoga. I needed to understand the human body. I learned to use what my grandmother and grandfather, both herbalists, taught me about natural medicines. I began to simplify my life and follow a healthier lifestyle for my mind, body, and spirit. Slowly I began healing myself. Eventually, I found my desire to help others and teach my clients and students how to begin their own journey of self-discovery, health, and happiness.

A Tribute

Simple Healthy Living is a tribute to my two amazing adoptive parents, Harry and Marj, who adopted not only me but my seven brothers. Can you imagine inviting eight children to live with you and to be devoted to these children completely and utterly?  Harry was a retired New Jersey police officer, rodeo champion, and a former Navy marine. Marj was the Head of Human Resources at General Motors in New Jersey. No matter what was happening, my brothers and I came first. Above all, we felt special, loved and cared for. 

After going through a harrowing year of watching loved ones die without being able to help, I longed for a simpler life. Not just a simple life, but a simple and healthy one.
