In 2015, my health took a serious nose dive and my world was turned upside down. My adrenals were burned out and over a period of weeks and months my symptom list continued to grow until one day the batteries literally just ran out and I struggled to put one foot in front of the other. Lifting my arms to get dressed in the morning or take a shower took every last drop of energy I had. What followed were neurological issues, gut problems, chronic joint pain, incessant insomnia and depression.
After an entourage of doctors, specialists, and consultants, I was actively encouraged to start taking a laundry list of pharmaceutical medication. From both a professional and personal standpoint, I was adamant this wasn’t the answer, even on days when I felt totally desperate and alone. I knew I needed to take control of whatever was happening in my body if I wanted to increase my chances of being around for my family in the future.
After two years of seeking answers and researching widely into alternative and natural ways to heal my body, the more convinced I became that I could really change my loss of health by nourishing myself with nutrient dense food and making very intentional changes to my lifestyle.
