After many tearful nights, I overcame my own digestive challenges and learned how to nourish my body.
A burst appendix led to a myriad of digestive problems, recurring infections, and fatigue. I struggled to navigate a frustrating medical system and to wade through a sea of confusing and contradictory information.
Today I'm grateful for the experience because it has shaped me both personally and professionally.
I now realize that being sick was an opportunity to begin an incredible journey of self-discovery and growth required to heal. It encouraged me to hold the concept of health in a broader way. It led me to pursue training in the complementary fields of functional nutrition, yoga, and holistic healing. Now I'm on a mission to help others.
