In 1976, she completed her surgical internship and obstetrics-gynecology residency at Henry Ford Hospital.
Exhibiting excellence through her innate ability, she became the director of the Woodrow Wilson Clinic for women’s health, at Henry Ford Hospital. Fueled by an insatiable appetite for knowledge, Dr. Jewel completed a Ph.D. curriculum at the American College of Holistic Nutrition, in 1992.
Dr. Jewel became a solo practitioner in 1982 which led her to form her first independent medical practice. Passionate about educating people on their innate ability to heal themselves, she employed her patients with the knowledge and tools to restore and maintain perfect health, using natural and non-invasive techniques. With the philosophy that the Hueman body is a whole entity in which the anatomical structures, physical functions and emotional states are interdependent and reciprocal in relationship, she has assisted thousands in healing. As her techniques evolved, her businesses followed suit. Dr. Jewel is a certified entrepreneur, having run several successful medical practices.

She, also, educates on the importance of nurturing the brain to support the health of the body through Dr. Jewel’s Balancing Program, which uses ancient sacred geometry to increase brain power and neuron activity through a focusing exercise; ultimately balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain empowering participants to create the life they desire.
