EDNA JULIANA HINTERMUELLER- BENZIGER RRT,BA,MS
BIO / RESUME
Born in Montreal, Quebec, EDNA HINTERMUELLER-BENZIGER graduated from VANIER COLLEGE with a DEC (Diplome en Etudes Collegiales), began her career as a Respiratory Therapist and became a tenured college professor for Vanier College at 23 years old. Ms. Benziger enjoyed teaching clinically and didactically and assisted in pulmonary medicine and anesthesiology research in the McGill University Hospital System during the late 70’s and 80’s. Ms. Benziger continued her studies at McGILL UNIVERSITY and graduated in 1986 with a post-graduate Diploma in College Teaching, majoring in Adult Education, Media (including Photography and Computer Assisted Instruction). For her thesis, Ms. Benziger researched, developed and published one of the first educational software programs with her professor Emiliano DeLaurentis and his team from “Arrakis Systems, Inc” in Montreal. (Biology 101: Respiration: Prentice Hall Publishers, 1986).
Ms. Benziger moved to NYC in 1987 for a professional development leave of absence from Vanier College and studied Computer Applications Technology at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY and worked as a Supervisor of Intensive Respiratory Care at COLUMBIA PRESBYTERIAN MEDICAL CENTER. She also worked Per Diem for the health care agency “ULTRA CARE, Inc ”, covering shifts in many NYC hospitals and gaining more experience in Intensive Care, trauma / emergency care. Within a year she accepted a Directorship position at LAWRENCE HOSPITAL in Bronxville, NY where she was able to effect many positive changes and institute programs for quality assurance and state-of-the-art technology. This managerial position led to an opportunity to expand into a new career path when Ms. Benziger was appointed Director of Marketing and Sales for “MEDICAL EXPRESS, Inc”, the hospital’s “for-profit” joint venture. After a few years of growing this home care business in the early 90’s, Ms. Benziger gave birth to her second child and decided to spend more time at home to raise her young family. She continued to work part time and was hired by one of her clients, the “WARTBURG HOME” in Mt. Vernon, NY to provide Respiratory Care services and preventative home care.
Ms. Benziger’s personal and professional journeys merged paths in 1992 when she had to discern healing options after a routine Pap Smear resulted in a diagnosis of “pre- cancerous cervical cells” and she adopted her first “INTEGRATIVE” approach to healing. Minor surgery combined with her first experience with “ENERGY MEDICINE” proved successful for many years to follow. As a result, Ms. Benziger became certified as a REIKE MASTER in 2001 and subsequently founded and directed "THE ENDLESS ENERGY CENTER”, a holistic healing facility that served her Bronxville, NY community at the time of the World Trade Center tragedy. The center offered stress and trauma management focused on holistic healing with a team approach, including BIO-ENERGY MEDICINE, REIKE, MASSAGE, YOGA, CHANTING, MEDITATION, PERSONAL TRAINING and NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING. Ms. Benziger also guided retreats to Stowe, Vermont for outdoor activities focused on healing Mind, Body and Spirit.
Ms. Benziger returned to the academic world at the same time in September of 2001 and was granted an honorary MS degree by HOLOS UNIVERSITY GRADUATE SEMINARY founded by world renowned Dr. Norman Shealy. She continued her Doctoral studies in ENERGY MEDICINE and SPIRITUAL HEALING from 2001-2008 while working as an independent distributor for several top American multi-level marketing companies focused on holistic health care.
Establishing a private practice in the NYC area during the early years of INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE proved very rewarding and Ms. Benziger diversified as a consultant for several leading spas and healing centers specializing in DETOX and Bio-Energy Medicine technologies. (ABUNDALIFE CLINIC, Asbury Park NJ ; CENTER FOR BIOFIELD SCIENCES, Puna India). Ms. Benziger traveled extensively to continue her Doctoral studies and training in many other complementary and alternative healing modalities with the following leaders in QUANTUM BIO-ENERGETIC MEDICINE, HYPERBARIC MEDICINE and BIOLOGICAL MEDICINE:

In 2008, six months after the passing of her brother and mother three weeks apart, Ms. Benziger was diagnosed with the first of THREE consecutive intra-ductal breast cancers within an 18 month period. Most of her immediate family had died of cancer over the years and Ms. Benziger underwent genetic testing and was positive for the BRCA2 gene known to increase the risk for breast, prostate, ovarian, colon cancers and skin cancers. Her grandmother and aunt had died of breast cancer. Both her father and brother had lost their battles to prostate cancer after serious toxic intervention including chemo and radiation therapies. Her mother had died of colon, cervical and uterine cancers....Her cousin died at 44 years old with metastatic cancer .... She knew in her heart and soul she had to follow a different Path. Eight years later Ms. Benziger is “cancer free” and “holistically healed” and considers herself a miraculous cancer “transcender” rather than “survivor”.
Ms. Benziger followed an intense INTEGRATIVE path to heal and chose to face her fears and transcend them with deep faith and courage. Thanks to early detection, she had one minor lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy which proved to be negative. After consulting with Dr. Norm Shealy and other professors at Holos University, Ms. Benziger chose to journey to Brazil to work with the renowned Spiritual Medium JOHN of GOD who facilitated a miraculous healing with “SPIRITUAL / PSYCHIC SURGERY” .
Returning home two weeks later after being welcomed as a “Daughter of the Casa” to volunteer as a medium / guide for John of God, Ms. Benziger chose to continue her “NON-TOXIC” and “no fear” approach to healing despite serious debates with top breast cancer surgeons and oncologists in NYC. Because of her "high risk" genetic history, they all insisted on double mastectomy, reconstruction, chemo, radiation and chemical hormonal therapies.....
Since Ms. Benziger had deep faith and was ready and graciously received the most important "Spiritual" healing as the first step in her "DETOX" process, she went on to cover all the bases for the physical, emotional and mental aspects of her healing with an "Integrative " approach. She aggressively tackled the physical detox phase of cancer with CHELATION, OZONE and other IV therapies and worked closely with one of the world’s leading homeopaths Vega Rosenberg. Strict alkaline diets with supplementation and other alternative / complementary modalities including , DNA REPROGRAMMING, PAST LIFE THERAPY , TOTAL BIOLOGY and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) were integrated into her healing process.
Eventually adopting a “MIND OVER MATTER MEDICINE” approach, following her “Soul’s calling” and honoring her “Sacred Contract” to network with, educate and help others, this process has evolved into Ms. Benziger’s current mission and she incorporates this experience and knowledge into her customized and trade marked method of practice.
Through this personal and profound journey of her own healing and transformation, “THE BENZIGER METHOD” TM has evolved and is a powerful high energy modality which serves to help people of all ages and all levels of consciousness and is not limited to breast or prostate cancer clients. Ms. Benziger works with and coaches women and men (who are also developing breast cancer at young ages!) She also has helped a growing clientele ranging from young healthy athletes needing to enhance their energy and peak performance through expansion of their “BIO-FIELDS”, clearing energetic and Karmic blocks, rebalancing chakras, eliminating unconscious negative belief systems and recommending scientifically proven and patented supplements using kinesiology (muscle testing) for customized care. Ms. Benziger has also consulted with company HR departments to offer her services to management and employees for improving performance, team building and general Health and Wellness.
Creative artists are also benefiting from greater guidance and “DIVINE DOWNLOAD” by accessing the “SOURCE FIELD” as Ms. Benziger facilitates a QUANTUM based BIO-ENERGETIC process incorporating Akashic Records which is truly customized and spiritual and well as scientific. This is the hallmark of Ms. Benziger’s work and her passion and purpose includes helping others with expansion and empowerment and discoveting their "Soul Purposes".
Ms. Benziger primarily works “remotely” but also really enjoys making “house calls” when home-based in her communities, which include Montreal QC , New York, NY, Bay Head NJ and Sun Valley, ID. She is expanding her clientele and professional network internationally and offers customized and personalized “CONCIERGE” coaching for all her clients. Her recent YouTube and Vimeo videos describes this mission with passion and also offers the opportunity for fundraising through a "Go Fund Me" campaign. Funding is also possible and greatly appreciated by donating directly on her website or through Solu.pub which accepts endowments for her mission and free access to her multi-dimensional E-Book on "DETOXING the SPIRIT, MIND and BODY to PREVENT BREAST CANCER".
Private guiding for healing retreats to the best INTEGRATIVE CANCER “KLINIKS” in Switzerland, Germany and Austria is also available. Ms. Benziger also guides private clients to Brazil to work with JOHN of GOD or at THE OMEGA INSTITUTE, NY or wherever the world renowned Medium may be working internationally.
Training and certification in HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY (HBOT) has expanded Ms. Benziger’s consulting practice to refer clients for a variety of conventional as well as “off-label” healing options for her cancer clients as well as for Sports Medicine. Ms. Benziger helped launch and market "Hyperbarics of Sun Valley" several years ago.
Ms. Benziger has witnessed the ever increasing effective and legal use of medicinal marijana , CBD and Hemp products along with the internationally awarded and patented LIQUID BIOCELL COLLAGEN which has been scientifically researched and has helped herself, family members, friends and clients and all these NON-TOXIC products are available through her website.
To honor her creative gifts,
Ms. Benziger also studied and apprenticed in TRADITIONAL CHINESE FENG SHUI as well as PERMACULTURE DESIGN and has been an avid organic gardener and landscape designer throughout her lifetime and was raised "off the grid" by her Austrian "Permaculture Pioneer" parents every summer on a lake in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec. In 2014, Ms. Benziger founded her "Sacred Space Designs" Company and worked on several urban residential projects in Montreal and designed pool, patio and window container gardens for Nature's Cradle in Eastchester NY.
In July 2015, Ms. Benziger was invited to Beijing, China to design her first collections of "Pearls with Purpose", a beautiful and functional Energy Jewelry line created and blessed to balance the Heart Chakra and raise "seed money" for her mission. Ms. Benziger had co-designed and hosted jewelry shows over the years in NY and also is certified in ECT (Electro Crystal Therapy). She launched her "Transcending the PINK Heart Collection" in Sun Valley, ID at Holli Jewelers and started her "Mountain Mama on a Mission " tour in September 2015. Ms. Benziger drove over 45 thousand miles to market her "Pearls with Purpose" to several mountain town galleries and boutiques across the country as well as visited renowned research centers such as McGill University Health Center, Sloan Kettering , Johns Hopkins and Bastyr University to discern which project to support. In April 2016, TranscendingthePINK.org was officially aproved as a 501C3 non-profit organization and Ms. Benziger's dream finally manifested after years of investing her own time, money and energy. 2017 will be the year to build a solid "foundation" by raising funds in order to support the research at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center for the "PREVENTION " of breast Cancer #CurcuminforPrevention.
Fluent in English, French and German, Ms. Benziger is expanding her business to reach a global market through her websites and social media, including LINKEDIN, FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, TWITTER, PINTEREST and GOOGLE +.
