When I was in my 20's.....

I was an avid work out junkie - biking, running, and spending time in the gym. I lived on protein bars and processed food.  But I began to notice less pep in my step.

 

I was a full-time student with a full-time job. And I found myself falling asleep between college classes, unable to concentrate.

In my 30's......

When I look back, my 30’s are a blur. I had what Functional Doctors now call ‘swiss cheese brain’, caused by inflammation from my Hashimoto’s autoimmune disease.  I saw no less than 6 doctors who all told me my fatigue and hair loss were caused by stress or weather (insert eye roll). Finally at 37, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).

 

They said I’d need to take a pill every day for the rest of my life. The pill helped, but I didn’t get my energy or my vatality back.

In my 40's......

I began suffered bi-monthly sinus infections and endured endless rounds of antibiotics. As I neared 50, every cavity in my head was filled with fluid and I had to expel the fluid from my lungs every morning. My body was screaming at me, but I didn’t understand what it was saying. When I asked my doctors, “should I be gluten-free?”, I was met with ambivalence and blank stares.

 

My lab work showed extremely low red blood cell counts (which I now know indicates parasites).  I saw blood specialists and allergy specialists. All their tests came back negative. One of the doctors even got angry with me and booted me out of his office! (I never want a client to feel this kind of shame or confusion.)

New Years Eve 2013.....

One of our rescue dogs attacked me. I had to endure 6 weeks of infused antibiotics to treat a bone and tendon infection that sent my health spiralling. When I looked in the mirror, I saw a shadow of my former self with ashen skin, brittle hair and absolutely no energy.

 

I knew I was dying from the inside and conventional medicine wasn’t going to help me heal. I turned to an alternative practitioner and discovered functional wellness.

And Now I feel fabulous!
