I am opening up and sharing today to help others. My goal is to provide support and inspire you to be your own advocate when it comes to YOUR health.
What it all boils down to is, only YOU know your body. Only YOU know if something is right, or wrong. And I encourage you to be steadfast and strong. Listen to your body, your gut, your instinct, and despite what the “experts” may be telling you, do not settle. Do not take no for an answer.
You are strong, you are powerful, and you are knowing. You are worthy and deserving of information, answers and solutions to getting yourself to good health. I urge you, please, do not give up. It can and it will be better.
I struggled many years with “knowing” my body wasn’t working. I sought out many, many doctors and specialists over the last 7 years to no avail. Time and time again I was told, “there is nothing wrong with you. You are fine. You need to accept your life and learn to live this way.”
But guess what? I refused. While acceptance and understanding and learning to let things go can be very beneficial in life, this was NOT one of those times. I knew in my heart of hearts that something was wrong. I did not stop. I continued to do my own research. I searched and searched, pouring over articles and anything I could find that might resonate with what I was going through.
One day, I found an article. And that lead me to a website. And that led me to a book. And this book saved my life. I was at the lowest of lows, and while I couldn’t even afford to purchase it, I found it at my local library. I read it immediately, cover to cover, and it CHANGED MY LIFE. For the first time I had valuable knowledge about my health conditions and I found answers. I was able to incorporate changes into my life to better my health.
These changes aren’t easy and they aren’t a “quick fix.” The road has been full of ups and downs. In fact, I got better but then I sicker. And that’s when I knew I needed professional support. I didn’t know what that looked like but I knew I needed it. I knew I needed concrete facts on the functionality of my body and a doctor, well versed in functional medicine and autoimmunity, to help me through the next phase of my health.
Three and a half years later, after tirelessly continuing on my health journey, I have finally found my support team. I have three amazing local doctors — one, who may be the world’s BEST psychotherapist, another, a chiropractor who practices Spinal Network Care, and lastly, a doctor who practices Functional Medicine. These three amazing humans are working in synergy to facilitate my healing.
I am in the middle of the most intensive transformation of my entire life. I can finally see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. I can look forward to life free of pain, sickness, pharmaceuticals and suffering. I see a life of strength, health, light and energy.
I cannot say it enough — I strongly urge you to BE YOUR OWN ADVOCATE. It gets better, I promise.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, are seeking encouragement or want to share. I am an open mind, an open heart and an open book. My goal is to share this knowledge to those who want to receive it.
