I joined the natural health care revolution over 20 years ago when I was misdiagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). I had been suffering from stiff joints and fatigue for months and self-diagnosed myself with RA and my doctor used my diagnosis even though I tested negative for the ANA test, because he was not sure what else to do. After 5 years of feeling like a “walking pill bottle” I decided to start doing research myself.
I stopped all of the medications I was taking (with my doctors cooperation), and really didn’t feel any different. I started eating healthier, or at least what the media and most other people advised was healthy. My health did improve, some… for a while. Of course the root causes of symptoms are often illusive and I was fortunate enough to find a group of Chiropractic Internists, DABCI docs… who helped me work through my symptoms and return me to an almost “normal” state. I was so excited about this change I decided to get my degree as a naturopathic physician. Since then I have had countless hours of additional education through the DABCI program which has been an amazing journey. I learn so much every day from patients and doctors who are involved in this program. It truly changed my life.
Unfortunately, I still wasn’t as healthy as I could have been, and my quality of life was not what it should be. I still had long bouts of fatigue, and really didn’t live life much until a friend of mine introduced me to the ketogenic diet and a supplement (Exogenous Ketone Salts) that helps get you into ketosis in less than an hour. On the first day my life changed. I have more energy, I sleep great and I have lost 4 sizes. (12-8!) I became so passionate about this change that I wanted to learn everything I could and share it with the world.
Welcome to my journey. I hope you decide to come along with me, it’s been a great ride so far. The best thing about this change is “I got my life back”! Please check out my Facebook Group, and let me know how I can help you!
