How I Overcame Chronic Health Challenges (& How Holistic Health Saved Me)
At the young age of 19, my health had begun to decline to the point where I could not live like a normal college student. After a round of Accutane, the pharmaceutical treatment for cystic acne, I was diagnosed with IBS.
Over the next 13 years my health would continue to decline. I also developed every one of the symptoms and conditions you read about at the top of this page. Multiple Chemical Sensitivities to bleach, building materials, and cigarette smoke; debilitating vertigo spells, chronic migraines (and these were often), insomnia more nights than not, chronic fatigue & adrenal fatigue, abdominal distension (severe bloating), and night sweats in my late twenties that were not from menopause or hormones!
I turned to a vegetarian diet in college which led me to graduate with my degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from the University of Florida. More ailments developed as a young adult just getting out into the world where I received my massage therapy license and opened a CrossFit gym with my husband, Aaron.
