Where to start.
As a kid I had a lot of stomachaches. In college I started to have a lot of headaches that I had for the next thirty years. As a young Mom, I had really bad PMS. After my second child was born I contracted Lyme disease. In my 40’s I developed chronic back pain. My 3 kids also had their own health challenges ranging from ADHD to digestive and upper respiratory issues. My middle child had chronic mucous draining from his nose, blew his nose incessantly, and was always tired.
As a trained nurse, I went along with the medical doctors advice and diagnoses of borderline asthma and allergies. I followed doctor’s orders and gave all the medications that were prescribed. Unfortunately these medications did not help anything, but ended up causing more problems from the side effects. It turned out that my son didn’t have a deficiency in steroids or allergy medicine (I’m being cheeky) but had a problem digesting dairy and gluten. The way I found that out was removing gluten and dairy from his diet and watching what happened as a result. He went on a nutritional program specifically designed for him, and voila, no more asthma episodes and no more allergies. What a simple fix (well simple in theory but took some years to figure this out then repair the body with nutrition).
What I didn’t understand was why my Pediatrician didn’t let me know that foods could cause these issues in my son? From then on I was on a quest to find the root cause of my and my kids chronic health issues. I began researching and reading everything I could get my hands on regarding natural healing. When the barrier to healing is removed and targeted nutrition is inserted, then real healing to the body can occur.
After experiencing my own transformation and watching my kids health issues resolve, I knew this was where I wanted to concentrate my studies to help others transform their health. I am passionate about empowering and educating others to take action and take their health back into their own hands. With a little guidance and support and commitment from you, one can achieve long lasting health and vitality. Call today. You’ll be glad you did.
