MY PERSONAL STORY
At 19-years-old I was diagnosed with discoid lupus while in undergraduate nursing school. I was an active young adult and became sicker with traditional medicine treatment. I knew that there was a better plan for me. I began researching and employing integrative and functional approaches to health. I weaned myself off medication and went into a ten-year remission. Then, after my daughter was born, she had severe gastroesophageal reflux and stopped eating. The recommendation was to give her a feeding button and fundoplication. Once again, I found myself searching for other options. I used functional approaches to help her heal and my daughter was able to avoid the recommended surgeries. During this stressful period, my discoid lupus returned, and I was also newly diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I used functional approaches to heal my autoimmune issues and adrenal fatigue once again. From that point on, my mission has been to educate myself to be able to help others heal.
