"Unearth the Root Causes of Your Mood Disorders - Nourish Your Mind, Body & Spirit From Within"
Since diving into the world of Health and Wellness in 2003, I felt reasonably well-equipped to navigate the health challenges that might come our way. But life had other plans, and nothing could've prepared me for the profound journey that awaited both me and my loved ones in the subsequent years.
What I thought I knew was tested, pushing me deeper into research, prompting questions, and driving me to keenly observe and understand our health patterns.
2011 became a pivotal year in our family's health saga. My spirited daughter received a diagnosis that shook our world – Hashimotos Thyroiditis. In search of answers, I was met with a disheartening response from the endocrinologist. “It just happens,” he remarked nonchalantly. The prospect of my 11-year-old committing to a lifetime of pills felt both overwhelming and wrong.
I couldn't, and wouldn't, accept that. There was a fire ignited within me, an unwavering belief that our bodies have an intrinsic ability to heal.
If you listen closely, symptoms are like coded messages from the body, signaling a cry for help or change. Determined to decode these messages, we embarked on a journey of discovery. It led us to the realization that my daughter's body was rebelling against gluten and dairy. With this knowledge and subsequent changes, the clouds of Hashimotos lifted from her life within a year.
Yet, this was only the beginning of our journey. 2012 brought its challenges. A car accident left me grappling with a cascade of injuries, the most daunting being a brain injury. Suddenly, clarity and focus became luxuries. Alongside these physical setbacks, my mental state began to deteriorate. Waves of grief consumed me, nights became sleepless battles with insomnia, and the spark of joy and drive I once felt seemed distant.
Depression clouded my days, and feelings of disassociation made moments seem surreal. The world felt out of focus, and the vibrancy of happiness was elusive.
Amidst this personal storm, another heartbreak was on the horizon – the devastating loss of my spouse to opiate withdrawal. The emotional toll, combined with the challenges of single motherhood and my mental and physical struggles, often felt insurmountable.
But adversity, I've learned, is also a teacher. Driven by my previous experiences and the need to heal, I delved deeper into holistic modalities. Chiropractic care, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation were no longer just wellness tools; they became my lifelines. Nutrition, mindfulness, and supplements were not mere options but essential allies in my journey to reclaim health and balance.
Emerging from these trials stronger, more enlightened, and deeply empathetic, I felt a profound calling. My personal odyssey of healing shouldn't remain mine alone. With credentials as a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT), Mindfulness Instructor (IMTA), and Functional Nutrition Lifestyle Practitioner (FNLP), I was not only equipped with personal experiences but also professional expertise. Today, I'm dedicated to guiding those who grapple with physical, emotional, and mental challenges, helping them uncover their paths to recovery and rediscovery.
To anyone reading this, navigating their health storms or supporting a loved one through theirs, remember: healing is a journey, sometimes complex, sometimes heartbreaking, but always worth the perseverance. Our bodies and minds communicate, and with patience, determination, and belief, we can tune in and find our way back to health.
