I Get Your Struggle
Not too long ago, I was faced with a debilitating health crisis that kept me in bed for 18 hours while sending me running to the bathroom a dozen times day or night. In fact, I spent a lot of nights napping on the toilet with a pillow on my lap. Everything I ate and drank went right through me which caused me to quickly drop a substantial amount of weight, I was weak, tired and hungry and didn’t recognized my gaunt reflection in the mirror. Worst of all, I had young children to care for but I deeply feared that I wouldn’t being able to watch them grow up. So I understand what it is like to be sick, feel helpless and scared.
Who is behind my wellness drive
Having a family history of blood sugar disregulation, from a young age, I observed what life was like to have to watch what you eat. Medication filled kitchen counters were a normal in my childhood home. My interest to learn about health and wellness started from having older parents. My mother was diagnosed with T2D when I was about 7 and I also worry about my dad's health as he was 12 years senior to my mother. After exploring various careers, I finally found my calling when I became a certified NTP in 2022, and I am beyond excited to take my knowledge to serve people like you.
Evaluate, Enhance and Refine
Trust me, I am not a fan of deprivation because I have gone through many elimination protocols on my path to healing. From juicing, gluten free, Paleo, AIP, extended water fasting, just to name a few. Yes, they have all serve their purposes to calm my symptoms and support the repair process, however, along the way, I developed a skewed relationship about food. Healing with food was my first intention, but I became baffled when it came to reintroduction time, in fear of the possible reactions I might experience. So I kept my diet very close to the elimination phases for a longtime…too long.
I slowly came to realized that these reactions maybe signs that I needed more healing, especially in my digestion.
In comes the NTP light bulb, where the focus of all healing starts with digestion. Taking the NTP course was my way to break the cycle and reconnect with nourishing whole foods; the way nature intended to provide us with, so I can embrace and rediscover what food freedom looks like for me.
I want to help you achieve the same.
