Too many people are not feeling well and cannot provide their riches and unique gifts to the world. I was one of those people. This is why I made it my mission to provide therapeutic solutions to those looking to improve their health and wellness so they can positively impact their world.
I’ve come to this purpose of lifestyle medicine and individualizing health through many years of working with my patients and as a patient who struggled with chronic fatigue, weight-loss resistance, and anxiety.
The weight gain was awful not only for my self-confidence but also brought on great anxiety and fatigue. Conventional medicine knew how to treat my immediate problems, anxiety, and weight gain, but nobody knew how to help me when chronic fatigue set in. I was exhausted, had extreme brain fog, paranoia, and severe insomnia.
I tried everything. I went to a weight loss clinic for B12 injections and an appetite suppressant… Unfortunately, the appetite suppressant only made my symptoms of anxiety worse. I turned to a psychiatrist who offered medications, a prescription that would theoretically help with symptoms, but I knew something else was missing after a few years of trying.
This was when I turned to functional medicine. I took a personalized approach to assess my unique body. What I found was shocking. The foods that I was eating most of my body was perceived as a threat. I had a leaky gut, suboptimal stomach acidity, low minerals, and subsequently a sluggish thyroid.
I was on a mission to hone in and fix my food problems, and thankfully that got better. I worked on an elimination diet, changed my exercise regimen, prioritized sleep, and worked on self-care and metabolizing stress. My journey took time, but almost immediately, the fatigue improved, and my sluggish thyroid started thriving… I was thriving again all through the power of lifestyle and individualized healthcare. And the experience changed my life.
