my journey into nutrition...
After starting a family, I became very interested in health and nutrition which eventually led me to enroll in a Master of Science program for Holistic Nutrition (while homeschooling three kids at the same time!)
Each course took us through nourishing and healing the various systems of the body, and as Iearned the science behind nutrition, I applied all this to myself and my family.
Sometimes health is a matter of peeling back the layers. Despite all that healthy nutrition, I was feeling tired and run down all the time.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease along with several coinfections. My adrenals were shot and my immune system was impaired. Lyme disease is multi-systemic and robs the body of nutrition and resources.
My Naturopath took one look at my labs and told me "the only explanation for the fact that you are still walking is how well you nourish yourself."
That really brought home to me the power of a healthy nutrient rich food and a wellness centered lifestyle. Struggling through my own chronic illness has been a great opportunity to grow. I know the challenges to healing, the struggle with low energy and the two steps forward only to take three steps back. As a wife and mom, there were days I didn't even know how I would care for my family.
Now I am on a mission. Every obstacle in life is really an opportunity, an illness is no different. Having walked my own journey of recovery, I can help you too!
I look forward to working with you!
