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 a bit of a spiritual unicorn.
I'm very passionate about helping people improve their health and become who they really are!! Will you join me?
