My story begins as many I've heard.
While the details of our stories are unique, the parallels are strikingly similar.
2009 - Age 54
I thought I looked
as well as I could.
I thought I felt
as well as I should.
I accepted my annoying ailments as 'my genes'.
2015 - Age 60
For many years, I had one annoying ailment after another; either red patches on my skin, a sinus or middle ear infection, canker sores, broken nails or hair too thin to grow long. Like many people, I wrote each of these ailments off as 'just me'. Then, in 2009, I was diagnosed with lupus. I had an auto-immune disorder! The good news is, though, with some changes, auto-immune disorders can be reversed.
Typical of other's experiences, I was given multiple prescriptions, each with undesirable, toxic side effects. I knew that this was NOT the path for me. I wanted to find out what was causing my illness. Little did I know, I was on my own. At that time, health coaches were virtually unknown, therefore, it was up to me to find the answers to my questions. Every answer I found pointed to diet and lifestyle. I learned that although auto-immune diseases are among the most prevalent forms of chronic illness today, being diagnosed with one does not need to be a life sentence. Even though I thought that I ate well, I learned that my body was constantly being invaded by the chemicals in processed foods, toxins in the environment, stress and infections. I learned that by making small changes, I could take charge of my own health again.
Simply changing to a predominately plant-based diet allowed me to wean off my medications. Within months, I was medication free. The paradox was, even though I thought I felt fine before I got sick, by making small changes in my diet and lifestyle, I began to feel better than I had in years. That's when I decided to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and that's when my life truly changed!
My profession had always been one of helping others. From a speech and language pathologist on the Zuni Reservation to teaching deaf children in Corfu, Greece to teaching special needs children on Cape Cod, I had always strived to make others' lives better. When people started asking me to share my secret for looking younger as I aged, for feeling better than I had in years and for having more energy and productivity each day, I understood that I had to do more to share my story. Retiring from teaching to start a new career (at age 59) was a risk that I was willing to take and I've never looked back...
