I healed my severe autoimmune disease through Holistic Nutrition
My journey to health has been a long road. It began like so many others; I struggled in my late teens and twenties with unhealthy habits and body image issues. I was searching for balance, but couldn’t seem to find it.
Then in my early thirties, my health worsened drastically. I just had my second child and was stressed, hormonally imbalanced, and had flu-like symptoms that wouldnt go away. I felt completely disconnected from my body. None of the doctors were able to explain why or help me.
In 2011, after an uncountable number of doctors and medical tests, I finally received a diagnosis of both Celiac disease and a rare connective tissue autoimmune disease. I thought that with this diagnosis, I was on a path to recovery. I was wrong.
After feeling sick for 2 years and trying over 20 different medications, which many times made me feel worse, I made it my mission to heal myself through food and lifestyle. I solved the problem all on my own, a feat I didn’t believe possible. By adopting a whole foods diet, reducing stress, and implementing healthy sleep habits, I finally found joy and peace in my life.
Shortly after regaining my health and wellbeing, I realized my passion was to help others who feel helpless about their health. I decided to commit to transforming health full-time and launched a new career as a Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach. While I learned a ton on my own and though my personal experience, I wanted to be fully equipped to help anyone in any situation heal themselves through the same overall strategy. I decided to attend the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City.
While there, I explored over 100 dietary theories, learned bio-individuality, and honed my coaching skills. The curriculum focused on all areas of health: relationships, food, physical activity, spirituality/mindset, and career. I was taught by leading physicians, researchers, doctors, and nutrition experts. Lastly, I was able to join a community at the forefront of health and wellness.
My purpose now is to assist others by helping them live their best lives. I promise you it’s possible.
