I believe the greatest gift and legacy we can give to our children is to take care of our own health and wellbeing and then to teach them to do the same.
I've seen both in my professional and personal life what happens to someone when they don't make their wellness a priority. I'm here to tell you ~ it isn't pretty.
I've been a Physical Therapist for over 25 years and most of those years have been spent in nursing homes, rehab centers, and hospitals. I've seen much needless suffering.
I've also spent a lifetime in search of a diagnosis for the headaches, unexplained pain and overwhelming fatigue I experienced on a daily basis. Headache, Migraine, TMJ, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Reactive Airway Disease, Reactive Arthritis, Mold Sickness, Biotoxin Illness, Anxiety, ADHD and Leaky Gut are a few of the diagnoses I've been given over the years.
I experienced my 1st migraine in 1st grade and since then I have been on the quest to feel better. It has led me on a journey through the western medical system into the complementary medical system to years of my own research and finally to a hard won answer to my never ending question "What is wrong with me?" The answer: INFLAMMATION. I had a nervous system that was on fire and an immune system that wouldn't shut off which led to a body and brain full of inflammation. Once I wrapped my foggy brain around these facts I was back in the driver's seat. I was empowered. I was able to not only survive but THRIVE.
Inflammation is the root cause of so many diseases both physical and mental.
My journey has led to a passion for Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) and the "gut - brain connection" and a desire to empower others with the knowledge I have gained as a medical professional, as a research obsessed patient and as a mother of a struggling child.
I went back to school and became a certified Health Coach to fulfill my dream of helping other individuals and families take back their health. I do this by showing you how to make small simple changes in your diet and lifestyle that can lead to game changing results and empower you to live your life to the fullest.
