I felt like I was being tortured slowly everyday – quietly dying.
After almost a dozen doctors and diagnoses such as carpal tunnel, vertigo, stress, depression, vision issues, needing to accept that my weight will never go down or that I needed to quit my job or adapt to a new lifestyle…it wasn’t until my son said:
“Mama, if we promise to be good tomorrow, will you not yell at us? We promise to be good.”
My heart crumbled and knew at that point, I had to take control of my health. I decided to quit my job of almost 12 years, for a number of reasons, but my health was the main reason. Luckily, I found a functional medicine doctor who ended up diagnosing me with a gut infection, a hormonal imbalance, Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune thyroid disease, mercury toxicity, active mono and walking pneumonia viruses and tick bacteria in my system. My life completely changed after this.
It took me about 2 years of detoxing, re-balancing my hormones, changing my diet, getting rid of my amalgam fillings and taking vitamins and supplements and adjusting my lifestyle to get my health back.
Just when I thought I listened to the universe’s sign of getting my health on track, 2017 took a quick turn to being the most traumatic filled year of my life! Within one years time I had to put my fur baby to sleep, I lost a friend to cancer, my children got diagnosed with autoimmune issues and to end the year with a bang, I made the decision to let go of my 12 year marriage.
2018 quickly became my year of re-birth! It was an intense and challenging healing journey to discovering a “new me” and developing self love. I dove head first into my spiritual awakening, starting with crystals, spirits guides, angels, energy healing and meditation. Because of the dramatic change on the outlook of life, I began to manifest and attract more positive things and people in my life! I added being a meditation instructor/part owner into my practice, as well as Reiki II, Theta Healing, Sound Healing and finally my crystal shop!
Now I am the happiest and most fulfilled I have ever felt! I learned the true importance of balancing the mind, body and spirit!
I was that person who loved potlucks at work, I ate what I wanted, hardly exercised, knew nothing about nutrition, vitamins or the importance of foods or where they came from – I was oblivious. My children were my motivation to go back to school to become a Holistic Health and Wellness Coach and start my business. I wanted to be a role model for them and to teach them the importance of diet and lifestyle.
I want to help educate others on how to be advocates of their well being
