I’m here to help women heal from chronic illness and get back to living a radiant life.
At 24, I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease. (You can read more about my healing story here and here.) I'd struggled with symptoms for years, but by that time my health was at such a low I could barely leave the house. At first, my healing was focused on diet and supplements, but eventually I felt like I'd hit a road-block in my healing. I thought I was doing everything right, so why did I feel stuck?
I got to a point where I just wanted to give up.
I felt betrayed by my body.
I felt like I couldn't "keep up” with life around me.
I spent all day worrying about my symptoms.
I obsessed over food and eating perfectly.
I felt self conscious about my body.
I felt trapped by my illness.
I felt like a burden to everyone around me.
I felt alone and hopeless that I would ever feel like my old vibrant self again.
Deep down I knew the roots of my illness extended far beyond my physical symptoms. I realized that healing would require emotional work too, and that's when I shifted my focus on how I could heal beyond food.
I learned to love and listen to my body and to trust that I am ALWAYS healing.
Before I knew it, I started to feel safe in my body again. I felt at home in my soul again.
I still believe that food is medicine, but I’ve learned that it isn’t the only medicine. Autoimmune disease extends beyond physical symptoms and healing requires addressing the emotional roots of illness too.
Now as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I support other women in all aspects of their healing!
