The programs and methods of the TEDS Foundation were built for Foundation Cofounder Brenda Schultz-McCarthy, a two-time Olympian, top ten tennis player in the world, who had a career-ending injury at the height of her career. After seven years of not competing, Brenda was able to come back, despite many doctors having said it was impossible. At 36 years old, she broke the world record for the fastest serve in the world, seven miles per hour faster than her personal record when she originally retired from tennis.
Just prior to her forty-first birthday, Brenda gave birth to her second son Damien and she died in the ambulance for a few seconds, until she was given a shot of adrenaline to bring her back to consciousness. After being stabilized, she went to the local intensive emergency care facility for her OB/GYN to do surgery to stop the bleeding. Her family was prepared for the real possibility of her not making it. The surgeon credited her lifestyle for her survival. Eight days after leaving the hospital, she was back on the tennis court with her athletes. She credits this miraculous resilience and recovery to her lifestyle and holistic approach to life.
A former doubles partner on the professional tennis tour and friend of Brenda's and her family benefitted from the programs, so she requested that Brenda and her husband, Sean, expand their programs beyond athletics.
"I had tried everything traditional and non-traditional to fix my back, but it wasn't until my husband Sean discovered how unknown stress created inflammation in my body and helped me release that stress that I could overcome my back pain. My way of clean eating and other lifestyle changes ,merged with Sean's stress-relief drills, allowed me to perform at a high level on the tennis court pain-free and have two healthy sons." - Brenda Schultz-McCarthy
To teach people how to holistically approach their health and way of living.
When people think and eat in ways that best support their health, they can be liberated to take actions that serve themselves, their families, their communities and the world.
We have helped people, of all ages and walks of life, from across the United States and countries all over the world, overcome challenges and physical, mental and emotional conditions that traditional methods were unable to address. Participants in the TEDS Foundation programs are holistically trained, educated, and empowered to transform their own lives and live free of limits.
