Health JourneyJul 16, 2021
Someone recently asked me what sparked my interest in health and how I got started on my health journey.
Over the last 15 years, I have been teaching people how to make healthy changes in their lives, and it all started with me on a journey to see how I could heal my body of eczema.
I had done all the medical allergy tests, and nothing showed up. So the doctors would always give me steroid cream, which thins your skin, and Benadryl, which makes you sleepy.
I finally started going to naturopathic doctors and chiropractors to see if they could help. And they did.
After having a food allergy test, CAT, I discovered I was allergic to sugar, bread, and milk products. There were more, but those were the major ones.
I learned that sugar fed my candida and caused an overgrowth. As the toxins were trying to get out of my body, they would go through my skin, and that’s when the breakouts came...Eczema.
Toxins leave your body in 3 areas: Bowels, sinuses, and skin.
The overgrowth of candida and bacteria (and who knows what else) caused my body to break out.
So I had to get rid of sugar, bread, and milk products, BUT I had to fill my body with raw fruits and vegetables. I had to alkalize my body because it was acidic.
This is how my health journey began.
I went to an alternative doctor to help me get more raw fruits and veggies in my diet. He taught me how to make my first smoothie!! Can you believe it? I didn’t even know how to make a smoothie back then!
I love to help others and don’t like to do things alone :) so I remember making my first video on how to make a smoothie so that others could join along!
It has been a journey of peaks and valleys, trying new things and taking risks. God is faithful, and He has been there through it all. He gave me opportunities to be authentic and share my story with others in my church.
So 15 years later, He is opening new doors outside of C3 Church! I am now teaching classes on detoxing and how to avoid inflammation. I just taught a class with Dr. Rachel Smartt N.D. the other day! You can watch it here!
So whether you are seeking a healthy lifestyle overhaul, a new job, or maybe you just want to make a few Simple Changes, let me know how I can help!
I know that God created me to help others receive freedom in their mind, body, and spirit, so it would be an honor to help you realize the plan and purpose that God has for you!
It can start today!
Don't miss a beat!
