Seven years ago my husband and I couldn’t have a baby. We dearly wanted a baby to complete our blended family, we had so much more love to give. We thought we had fixed the problem under medical expertise (5 rounds of ICSI IVF). But still no pregnancy. Such heartache, frustration, anger, sadness! I began to look outside of the information offered by conventional medicine for reasons for our infertility. Real reasons for WHY.
WHY can’t we have a baby. WHY can’t other women have a baby.
With no obvious medical reasons found, the term given to this group of us was “unexplained” I began to look further into the possibility of WHY. It began with my body. Did I treat mine well? Did I provide it with all the vitamins and minerals to be healthy? Did I eat well? While I thought I was healthy – I was far from it.
With limited knowledge of what a truly healthful whole food diet meant, what vitamins and minerals were necessary for optimal function, what the ingestion and absorption of chemicals could do, how chronic stress serves us – I began to learn. I started with Google. I talked to others. I asked questions. I read books.
And I began to change things… when my health improved we set off for round 6 of ICSI IVF… and SUCCESS!!! A viable full-term pregnancy – our healthy baby boy Devon was born on the 15th of April 2017.
While our wonderful boy was now in our lives, my search for answers wasn’t fulfilled. I knew I needed to learn more to help others to help themselves. I needed to learn more to continue to heal. I needed to learn more to teach my children how to lead healthy and happy lives, free of chronic illness, pain and other dysfunction.
Then my path crossed with The Nutritional Therapy Association. Located in Washington USA, their Instructor’s have now begun teaching their science based, whole food and nutritional practices in a global movement – there are now more than 5,000 Nutritional Therapy Practitioners across the world. I’m now a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
Please ask yourself some questions – Do you feel well? Have you ever felt well? Do you have beautifully formed log poops that fall to the bottom of the loo? Is asthma, eczema, tiredness, depression, pain, constant colds/virus’s, diarrhea/constipation, infertility, dry or itchy skin, memory loss, stress, anxiety, weight issues, heart palpitations, weakness, diabetes, anemia, infections, bad breath, auto-immune disease, fibromyalgia, headaches/migraines, rosacea (and many more…!!!) part of yours or your loved ones daily lives?
It’s not meant to be this way. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
What would it mean to you to FEEL AMAZING? Could it CHANGE YOUR LIFE? The lives of your children? Your family and friends?
While I’m still learning (and believe I will always have something to learn as new science and research is found) I can still HELP YOU to HELP YOURSELF. Come on this journey with me and lets get well. It’s not going to be easy. And some of it will be scary. But I promise to be real with you. I promise to be here for you. Lets LEARN + GROW + THRIVE together.
Begin with the possibility that you and your family can live healthy and happy lives, free of chronic illness, pain and other dysfunction. Lets learn together and make 2019 the beginning of being on the right path to essential healing and health.
