Now that I have the freedom to travel,
I'm too afraid of my body breaking down without the safety of my home, food and supplements!


When I was 43 I had this profound realization that I'm probably only halfway through my life.  Wow, it's not over it's just starting.  My kids will be gone and I'll have the flexibility to do things for myself!

I had spent half a lifetime healing adrenal fatigue, IBS and autoimmune disorders.  I had perfected my food, supplement and lifestyle routine so that I could feel well.

The next lesson was to learn how to be healthy without the healing plan for a few weeks!  




 

I spent the next 12 years working on just that.  How can I heal my adrenals, gut, immune system enough so that I can stress it again - go on vacation, deal with jetlag, eat whatever is available?

To begin any healing plan I go back to the basics of nutrition and healing the underlying cause.  How do we stop the sugar cravings themselves, without simply restricting sugar?

My Healing Journey

As a young adult I was very sick; suffering from multiple autoimmune disorders and constant indigestion with food cravings.  

Eventually I learned to avoid foods that made me sick.  In 2003 I went back to school to study holistic nutrition at Bauman College in Northern California.  I learned how to truly heal myself and enjoy vibrant health along with delicious food.

I have a passionate drive to alleviate the pain, indigestion and raging autoimmune disorders that are sapping away at your quality of life. 

I know what it's like to feel sick for days, weeks and years.  Some of us are born that way, with a body just too sensitive to every single problem.   We are told that autoimmunity is incurable and will probably spread - giving us 2 or 3 autoimmune disorders in a lifetime.  

I have worked my way through indigestion, irritable bowel, mercury poisoning, multiple food sensitivities, anxiety, depression and autoimmune thyroid.  In 17 years of professional practice I have helped a variety of different people with unique challenges and autoimmune sicknesses to work through their own health.

Now I am over 50 and much healthier than I was as a teenager.  Imagine your health 5, 10, 20 years from now.  Do you want your health to improve as you use this time to learn the unique needs of your very special body and continue to learn and improve on self care as you grow older.

When I had two toddlers in the house I vowed to never be bored again in my life.  If I teeter on the brink of bored I will enjoy staring into space.  Now I have plenty of time to stare into space - I have learned to use this time to rest so that I can save my adrenals to do fun things. 

Growing older does not have to be a downhill slide.  Yes, certain skin, ligaments and joints may break down, but our knowledge and skill in coordinating self care can only grow in this time.

Now I love helping people learn to enjoy healthy, satisfying food.

Today I use a combination of food, supplements and lifestyle adjustments to help people with digestive and autoimmune problems to feel better.
