My story began when I was very young. I don't remember too much of my childhood and I didn't come from your average family. I started getting migraines well before I was a teenager. No one seemed to understand the pain and what surrounded it, including me. It was pretty scary. I think I lived most of my childhood in fear; fear of many different things. Death and pain were the big ones.
I was sick a lot. Colds, sore throats. I was always pretty skinny but I ate a lot. I lived on junk food and soda. I could say childrens aspirin was a part of my regular diet.
Migraines continued through my teenage years. I took pretty much whatever I could to alleviate the pain. By the time I was 18 I was a smoker, sick more often than not, took prescription painkillers that didn't do much other than get me high, aspirin, drugs, I pretty much tried everything.
I ended up with an inner ear infection that wouldn't go away after several months of steroid treatments and antibiotics. I was a mess at 18! Migraines were out of control. Doctors were not able to help.
I really just wanted to give up but that's not who God made me to be.
A few years later I met someone who talked to me about a "natural" product that would make me healthier. So I tried it. That's where my journey to healing started. For the next several years I continued to spiral downward in many areas and get healthier in others because diet changes and natural remedies.
By the time I was 25, I was on my second marriage with 2 wonderful kids and in nursing school. I soon realized I wanted to pursue natural health and dropped out. My health took another turn for the worst and after seeing many doctors, I was left right where I started. Sick, in pain and scared! I was terribly afraid of dying since no one could tell me what was wrong with me.
I think I've shared enough so you understand how sick and desperate I was without writing a long book. That will come later.
Fast forward a number of years with lots of education, great practitioners, trial and error....... I really haven't been sick in years, my weight is good, I sleep, migraines were almost not existent, hormones are doing just fine and most other ailments are gone.
I'm in better health now than I was as a teenager. I still have a few areas to work on but that will come.
So if I can do it, you can too! That is why I've dedicated my life to helping others live healthy and not only that, to live happy. I spent way too many years being miserable and I don't want that for anyone. We can have joy while we're in the storm. One great thing about a storm is that the rain eventually stops and the sun shines bright.
I'm now single with 2 amazing kids who are all grown up with great spouses. I have 3 grandchildren and 1 on the way. I love to hike, paddle board, walk, spend time with my family and friends. I'm totally in love with Jesus, He's the best ever.
I'm very passionate about helping people improve their health and become who they really are!! Will you join me?
