I guess I’ve always turned to writing when life things happen. I’ve always kept a journal which, for the most part, are filled with constant frustrations, worries, and really terrible poems. It’s always been my outlet, it’s the one constant thing that, no matter where I’m at, I can go to for inspiration, meditation, and comfort.
It all begin for me with a diagnosis of Interstitial Cystitis at 15 years old. The depression, self-harm, and generalized teen angst followed suit. After that came Endometriosis, PCOS, and Celiac Disease. By 22, I had become an unwilling auto-immune problem case with no clear solutions.
Enter clear, eye-opening, whole nutrition here.
I’ve been dieting for ages. Every since I was 15, starting on the low/no acid diet to help improve pain, hobbled around low-calorie for a while, Weight Watchers, veganism, “I-don’t-give-a-shit-#junkfoodforever”, etc. None of them satisfied me. None of them aided my overall health improvement and worst of all, they made them worse.
It wasn’t until I discovered Weston A. Price and his take on traditional diets did I finally find something that not only works, but it also makes sense. This was pretty huge catalyst that has brought me to the Nutritional Therapy Association and their practitioner program. I’m practically brimming with the excitement of understanding the human body better and to hopefully not only help myself, but other people too!
I seem to be at a bit of a crossroads right now. I need to pull the big girl pants (once I find them) on and makes some serious life decisions. Career, life, love, towns. Total game changers. As much as I hate to admit it, the place of fear is really the best place to be. We can’t do anything greater without it.
I hope to use this place to document my life, my passion, and my thoughts. And as a space to keep my thoughts loud and clear, and heart strong and steady.
