following: Eat To Live by Dr. Fuhrman
Two years ago, I was obese and struggling with a debilitating auto-immune disease (Idiopathic & Delayed Pressure Urticaria Nervosa), chronic migraines, excruciating arthritis in almost my entire body, severe indoor and seasonal allergies, depression, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, Stage 2 Hypertension, leaky gut, and a LONG painful list of food sensitivities and digestive problems that were ruining my life. I have now reversed and eliminated ALL of those conditions with the way I eat! I've spent the last couple of years researching how diet and lifestyle affect every aspect of my life & health and found a whole-food, plant-based approach to eating that has allowed my body to heal and thrive. Now, I never have to count calories or carbs or fat, and eat plentiful amounts of delicious, healing and exciting foods and NEVER feel deprived or the need to "cheat"! It's a win-win!
Before all of this, I was working in a high-stress job as a cell biologist in a lab. I hated my job and longed to do something with meaning and purpose instead of playing with cells in petri dishes all day while watching my health slow slip away from me. I've gone from barely being able to drag myself a mile to conquering a half-marathon less than a year later for my 40th birthday! It's been the most challenging years of my life, but also the most rewarding, exciting, joyful and vibrant years too!
Now, a new chapter of my life has begun. I've launched my own health coaching business specializing in people struggling with chronic illnesses, weight management and self-sabotaging behaviors. It's brought such a rewarding sense of purpose and meaning to my life that I could have only imagined a few short years ago.
I try my best to stay in touch with people on this website, but it's easier for others to find me on my other social media accounts like FB and Twitter (search for Farmacy Revolution and you'll find me!)
Kale, Kettlebells and Kisses to you all!!
