Time for Change

Two months ago I was on top of the world. Mid twenties, a cardiac nurse, I was boxing and training for my next competitive race.  I had just gone part time where I work, I was thriving in my full time nurse practitioner program and was getting ready for a summer trip to Maine, Ohio and Boston.  Everything was peachy.

Then one day in June I woke up with pain to my right calf.  Then for following month I experienced flu-like symptoms, heart palpitations, pain all over my body (even my cheeks!), weakness, and insomnia.  I had no idea what was going on with body. And neither did any doctor.

The wisest choice I made was to change my diet and detox as soon as the pain started.  I immediately cut out caffeine, sugar, wheat and gluten, and all the sugar free products and alcohols I was consuming and had been addicted to for years.  A couple weeks after that I eliminated legumes and soy in my diet.

Bare with me...there is definitely a back story. I made some alarming choices and lived a stressful lifestyle for several years that I had no idea was impeding on my health. A silent killer.

I started working with a holistic doctor in the beginning of July and following a GAPs, paleo/dairy free, and DHwRF diet (at least best I could). Bone broth became my best friend.  And so began the journey of healing.  Mid August I feel like I have done a 180.  I'm not 100% yet and it will take some time.  But  I am on the journey, accepting it and loving growing in this season.

This blog is been on my heart for years.  I have a passion for holistic and integrative health, as well as nutrition and exercise.  I sincerely love to see people not only achieve physical health, but emotional, mental and spiritual as well. Our body is a temple- it needs love and nurturing.  I pray that as I share recipes, insight, suggestions, advice, and my story, that others may start their journey of healing and/or find the encouragement to continue on it.

It's not too late.  There is always time for change.
