I understand your pain and suffering. I suffered from autoimmunity and inflammation that manifests as Ankylosing Spondylitis, a degenerative disease that affects the spine, sacroiliac joints, eyes, gut, rib cage, and joints of the extremities like ankles and wrists. If ignored, this disease leads to disabling spinal fusion and limited breathing mobility among other scary impacts. When I was diagnosed I was very shocked because I was living a life that was pretty healthy compared to many and I was extremely scared of the seemingly uncontrollable degeneration of this disease. All I could think was, why me? You might be feeling the same way. It all seemed so mysterious and therefore uncertain and super scary.
At one point in my life, I was in so much pain and lost so much energy that I was ready to check out. Luckily I did not get stuck there. Shortly after feeling as if drowning in a lake would be a great escape, my kids and family flashed before my eyes. In that moment I knew I wanted to turn this suffering into a healthy, thriving life full of love.
I removed the mystery of this condition and replaced it with knowledge and support from a team that included an Integrative Medicine Practitioner, Naturopathic Doctor, Functional Nutritionist, Neurologist, Acupuncturist, General Practitioner and Energy Healer. Even with this amazing team it was challenging to put all the pieces together. Navigating all of the input was sometimes frustrating to say the least.
Then I learned two frameworks that put it all into perspective and a structure that I could logically apply to my healing process. The frameworks were Ayurveda and Functional Medicine. I combine these frameworks to form an Integrative Medicine approach that works! These complementary frameworks transformed my way of thinking about wellness and more importantly, gave me a way to apply practical and sustainable practices that have changed my life forever.
I transformed my suffering into renewed energy and ease, and am passionate about empowering you with the frameworks of Ayurveda and Functional Medicine to create the vibrant life you deserve.
I committed myself to learning and applying wellness strategies that alleviate pain, reduce fatigue, clear brain fog, and eliminate many other life limiting symptoms of inflammatory autoimmunity. Through daily body, mind, emotion, and spirit balancing routines I give my body the best chance it can have to renew itself.
My results have been amazing. I went from pain that was so intense that I was home-bound. I was so limited that sometimes I could only crawl from my bed to the bathroom and back. I was so dizzy, nauseated and foggy that I had to walk with a cane and sometimes required a wheel chair. By applying anti-inflammatory, gut balancing, heart centering, life affirming and mental clarifying practices I am renewed. I am living life with minimal to no pain, full energy, steadiness, renewed strength and freedom to help people like you achieve your wellness goals.
Now I am helping others achieve amazing results too! I can teach you how to renew your life and support you through the journey.
