Here is her personal story on how she became a Nutrition coach.
10 years ago I was driving home after working out of town and started to feel my body go numb. I was having trouble breathing, I broke out into a cold sweat and felt a tingling sensation and I was having trouble focusing .My heart was racing. I pulled over thinking that I was having a heart attack or a stroke. My symptoms didn’t subside. I called 911. They came and took me by ambulance straight to the hospital. They ran a bunch of different tests. They found nothing wrong with me except that I was dehydrated because I had the flu a couple days before. They got me hydrated, monitored me for a couple hours and sent me on my way. 18 months later I was still searching for answers and it felt like a lifetime! I tried all traditional Western medicine doctors during this time and treated with specialists like an Endocronologist, Internist, Gastroenterologist etc… My symptoms continued to get worse during this time. Panic attacks and severe anxiety kept me from leaving my house. I was not able to even help raise our 4 children either. Chronic fatigue, weight loss, digestive issues, insomnia and you name it! I spent a lot of time in bed sick. No quality of life. A good friend of mine recommended a Center where her mom went for treatment for breast cancer and she was healed naturally. So, I thought I must give them a try. The doctor told me that I was in good hands but said you are a “complicated situation”. After a number of tests and an entire evaluation on me we started the healing process that has brought me back to a normal life. It was a long road but we got there. One of the first things I changed was my diet even though I thought I was eating healthy. Nutrition was a big part of my healing process. I decided that from that day forward I am going to get myself better and teach people to “Let food be thy Medicine” by Hippocrates.
