IT ALL STARTED WHEN...I lost vision in my left eye at the age of seventeen. I experienced a condition called Optic Neuritis nine times during a fifteen year period along with other neurological issues such as loss of feeling and tingling throughout my body and limbs. These symptoms are often a sign of Multiple Sclerosis, the disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body and can lead to blindness and paralysis.
The symptoms I experienced persisted throughout my college soccer career as a division 1 scholarship athlete. It was extremely difficult to push my body to the brink of exhaustion on a daily basis because of these difficult health issues. I looked normal to everyone from the outside but I was fighting an internal battle with my body and mind each day. My future was totally unknown.
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in my early twenties when lesions were found in my MRI brain scans. It was a scary time. I felt alone and unheard. The only option presented by traditional medical doctors was to take immune suppressing medications costing thousands of dollars per month. I turned them down.
Interestingly the cost of these medications has increased 300% between 2004-2015. At the same time this diagnosis is rapidly on the rise and sadly people are left with few, if any alternatives within the traditional medical model.
SEEK THE TRUTH
Although I was told by the top neurologists in the field at the time that diet has no affect on the disease and there is no connection between heavy metal toxicity or lyme disease, I intuitively felt these were the underlying issues at the root of it all.
Over the last twenty years I educated myself. I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Certified Holistic Health Coach in 2004, exploring alternative and integrative healing modalities to get to the root causes of my own issues and to assist others to do the same. I chose to follow my intuition and worked to get to the underlying issues that were presenting as a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis with the help of incredible integrative medical doctors who listen, collaborate and empower their patients. This experience has lead me to understand the importance of trusting my intuition, mind and body awareness. I committed to healthy lifestyle changes, reducing toxicity and stress, eating clean foods and taking plant based medicine to support my healing process.
I am grateful for this experience which taught me at a young age to listen to my body, eat clean whole foods, seek my truth, question the status quo and to live with awareness.
There are many layers to how my healing unfolded and continues to. Through this experience I have gained vast knowledge in how to support and nourish my body with organic whole food nutrition, mind body connection, proper supplementation, reducing toxicity and the use of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils to assist in overall wellbeing and cellular health. Everything I put in, on and around my body has a great affect on my health and wellbeing. I am passionate about tuning in and listening to my body even when I'm feeling well. To maintain health and vitality and emotional wellbeing, this is a daily practice and an ebb and flow of finding a balance that works best.
