Here’s a little bit about me.
My quest for being healthy and living life with joy, whatever the challenge has evolved and steadily grown.
My faith has kept me strong and causes me to keep going no matter what.
My health problems started when I was a young child. Then when I was 19, I was diagnosed with a life threatening autoimmune disease called Aplastic Anemia. It was very server and meant my bone marrow stopped producing blood. I was given 2 months to live. Obviously, the doctors were proved wrong!
For many years I continued to have various health challenges. Early on, although I had made some healthful changes to my diet, when looking back, most were not healthy after all and actually caused more harm.
As time went by, more diagnosis and suffering just kept coming. Then starting 2007 marked several years of even greater challenge. From divorce (I have since remarried to an amazing Godly man), to both my parents passing within 11 months of time, to a near fatal accident in 2009, to 3 very invasive surgeries between 2009 and 2010 (1 due to the accident and 2 due to illness) all greatly exacerbated my health issues.
By 2011 I began making even more significant dietary changes and other healthful lifestyle modifications. But…due to the complexities I suffered and severity of condition I was in, it was going to take a whole lot me to restore my health. By 2014, I was nearly bedridden. As many have experienced, most doctors had no idea what to do for me outside medications.
BUT….I was not giving up! I began on a seriously aggressive mission to regain my health.
I spent countless hours researching about my health problems and what holistic and alternative therapies could help.
I had to do a lot of clean up work to undo the damage that had already been done to my body, especially my gut and stress response. I knew there was no quick fix to repair and recover from the damage and toxic overload I suffered.
I had an insatiable appetite (no pun intended) to understand more about the food we eat, our dietary and lifestyle habits, how our bodies process nutrients and what happens when we are deficient, what causes dis-ease, and how to detox from the accumulation of toxins.
I realized our gut is 80% of our immune system. When that is functioning well, we have a strong microbiome balance, and little inflammation, we can regain so much better balance and function, whether that is with our hormones, mental state and capacity, stress response, energy and vitality, and much more.
After years of study and experience first hand, I began my journey to obtain formal health education and devour as much about holistic health and wellness as I could. I continue to do that as the more expertise I have, the better I can help myself and others. I cannot just rest in my previous healing.
Given what I have dealt with, I have to be super diligent in sustaining my own good health and sometimes I do have a flare and must tend to it. I am so incredibly thankful to the Lord for His healing and for all He has enabled me to do to help others.
I want to help you and instill hope back for you where it has been lost.
You truly can experience a transformation – freedom from your relentless symptoms that keep you from the life you desire. I’ve overcome and I’ve helped many others too. Your freedom can be next!
God Bless You!
