About Us

Imani Sankofa

The standard American diet primarily consists of sugars, meats, carbs and dairy. The food is filled with chemicals and dyes and very little nutritional value whatsoever. Recent statistics show that up to 66% the US population is overweight or obese. These weight trends are even more pronounced among African Americans with 60% of African American men and 78% of African American women identified as overweight.

Black Health Village is committed to eliminating health disparities among African American women by providing holistic health solutions. As a result of working with Black Health Village, women learn to reduce stress, release weight and reconnect to life. We're looking to work with women who are interested in peace of mind, improved health and creating a life they love.

Reduce, release and reconnect by restoring African American health one pound at a time.

Our Story


In 2003, our youngest daughter was diagnosed with Crohn's disease after a long episode of severe hairloss, weightloss, vomiting and other violent symptoms. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory disease of the intestines that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus, causing a wide variety of symptoms.

We were told the prognosis was fatal unless certain medical measures were immediately taken. Our minds rushed into panic mode. We had never heard of Crohn's disease less alone knew what measures to take to combat the issue.

We began to overload on medical research and sought advice from various sources ranging from gastrointestinal doctors to surgeons. We consulted with our spiritual advisor on how to address the spiritual part of the equation. Then the journey to wellness began.

Now we were equipped with a team of great doctors from Texas Children's Hospital, our personal spiritual advisor, and detailed medical information. Together we devised a treatment plan that addressed mind, body and spirit. The plan included western and alternative medicine treatments as well as spiritual affirmations and prayer.

Long story short, after more than 3 years of working the plan, our daughter's health was restored!

From that point, we began to educate ourselves on wellness and holistic living. Imani attended school where she obtained her certification as a Natural Health and Wellness Consultant. As a result, Black Health Village was born.
