My journey to understanding the body, how it works and how to keep it healthy began out of a desire to fix me, and then my boys, when traditional medicine fell short and was nowhere to be found. Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely a place for traditional medicine. I’m just explaining how it shaped my story.
When I was younger I was sick a lot. A lot of colds and ear infections. Tons of tummy aches after I ate, and a bout with low red blood cells and by the age of 17 I had an ulcer. Appointment after appointment I wasn’t getting better and no one seemed really concerned.
By the age of 21 I was not only physically unhealthy, I was mentally unhealthy. I had a constant cloud, a dark cloud, over me. I couldn’t”snap out of it”. So I went to the doctor and asked about depression. The doctor actually laughed at me. Yes, you read that correctly, he laughed. He said I came into the office with a smile and greeted everyone, therefore, I wasn’t depressed and it was all in my head. I fought him on it and he reluctantly had the nurse give me a questionnaire. To this day I am still waiting for the office to call me back with the results. I left realizing I am my biggest, and only,advocate. I began researching depression and discovered its link to food. All of a sudden pieces of the puzzle began to fit together-the tummy aches, the ulcer, the poor immune system.
This wasn’t an easy, nor quick, process which was still occurring when I had my first son. That sweet boy struggled holding down formula and food and by 3 had severe food and environmental allergies. My second son developed allergies and asthma. Asthma so bad we ended up in the hospital for 5 days as I watched him struggle to breathe.
Once again I watched traditional medicine not improve symptoms or conditions. So I added all of their concerns to my quest. There is something about watching your children suffer, especially watching one struggle to breathe, that will light a serous fire under your butt to fix it.
I chose to want to fix our situation. To not accept it as the norm. Although there are things we are still working on, I have watched allergies subside, asthma disappear and immune systems strengthen. I’ve lost my dark cloud and am fully aware of my food sensitivities. I’m blessed with feeling the best I’ve felt have in a long time.
All of this has empowered me to help others realize their are solutions and options. The unhealthy, stressed out, overworked, way you feel doesn’t have to be the norm. You can become the person you were meant to be and live the life you dream of.
