the pain started on New Year's Eve 2015. excruciating stomach pain. I remember describing the pain as if someone stabbed me in the stomach with a knife and left it in.
on the way to the ER in an ambulance, I remember begging the paramedics to give me something - anything - for the pain. when we finally got to the ER I felt a sense of relief because now the doctors could run some tests and I could get some answers. I just wanted to get diagnosed so we could starting treating my pain!
but as hours went by, all the results for my tests were the same: 100% normal. "how is that even possible?!!" in the end, my long, disappointing night ended with a bottle of prescription pain killers, a huge ER bill (and ambulance bill), and every doctor staring at me and just shrugging their shoulders. I was so confused and upset.
fast forward a few years and my symptoms only got worse: severe bloating, chronic UTIs, anxiety, depression, brain fog, memory loss, insomnia, night terrors, vertigo, panic attacks, menstrual pain, cystic acne, heart palpitations, migraines, chronic fatigue, and more. I had been diagnosed with SIBO, Lyme disease, gastritis, narcolepsy, mercury poisoning, and mold toxicity, and was on over a dozen types of prescription medication but I was still getting worse and worse.
after leaving the ER for the millionth time I remember thinking: "I can't do this anymore. these doctors clearly don't have the tools to help me... so I'm going to have to be my own doctor." and that's exactly what I did.
my first experience with holistic nutrition was after watching a documentary called "what the health" on netflix. the premise was simple: that a vegan diet can cure and even REVERSE chronic illness symptoms. "screw it!" I thought to myself, "I'll try it. I have nothing to lose." so I adapted a plant-based diet for 30 days. and after the month was complete, I had eliminated 50% OF MY SYMPTOMS. umm WHAT?! can it really be THAT simple?
I dove in deeper. I learned about pesticides, heavy metals, and other toxic chemicals in our environment that we are exposed to every day. I knew I was on the right track. then I transitioned my vegan diet into more of an organic, whole food, plant-based vegan diet and sure enough...
today, I have healed 99% of my chronic illness symptoms. and am off 100% of my prescription medication. who knew plants could be so POWERFUL?!
after I healed myself I knew that I couldn't stop there - I needed to help others break free. so I enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, the world's largest online nutrition school, and after a year of training I became a certified holistic health coach. I have learned reputable alternative healing modalities, healthy cooking skills and habits, hundreds of different dietary theories, and attended various wellness conferences/seminars/workshops with doctors, authors, psychologists, chefs, and other holistic professionals from all over the world. I then dove into my own spiritual journey and realized that I was a highly intuitive empath and began healing my clients on a SOUL level. and now, I'm here. to help you live your best life.
