My weight issues and digestion issues began as a child. I can remember experiencing severe heartburn, acid reflux (I can still recall the feeling of burning stomach acid coming into my throat), constipation, and strange pains that never had a specific cause or name. Unfortunately doctors had nothing to offer me but a mask for my symptoms (which created other symptoms) or removal of body parts. What I found interesting was that even after the body part was removed, the pain was still there. I remember playing with my thin friends, wishing I was skinny like them and not fat. So you see, my physical issues affected me psychologically as well.
Does this sound like you?
I became extremely frustrated as an adult. I was tired of hearing: “There is nothing wrong with you”. “How about some anti depressants to make you feel better?” Well ok – I thought. Except it didn’t help. I remember wishing I would just get a disease so that my issues had a name and it could get fixed. So such luck. Eventually my digestive system became so deteriorated that I ended up weighing under 100 pounds. Every thing I swallowed caused pain.
I decided I had to take control of my life. This led me on my journey to becoming educated in health & wellness. It was through my own wellness journey that I developed a deep respect for the human body, how it functions, what it needs, what sets it off balance, and how to make it happy again.
By becoming my own client and putting into practice everything I learned, I finally found the source of my digestive issues, weight problem, mood disorders, anxiety, and unexplained pain.
