I’m sure you have questions. I have a list of frequently asked questions and answers ready just for you!
When I was 39 years old, I was starting my second year of chiropractic school. It had been a second career choice after losing my job in 2008. I was also the mom to 3 very active children under the age of 15. They were all involved in a sport plus many other activities, and it was a real challenge going back to school full time and also continue to do the things we loved as a family, like hiking, biking and camping on the weekends.
My mind was filled with lots of hopes and dreams as I was finally doing what I loved to do, rather than what I had to do when working a job. It seemed like I had my whole life finally figured out, when out of nowhere … I woke up on a Monday morning and couldn’t feel the right side of my body.
It was hard for me to comprehend what was happening. I rarely, if ever, got sick. I ate well, exercised, took supplements and was under chiropractic care. I would have been 1 million dollars the night before that. I was in perfect health. I thought I was doing everything to protect my health and prevent sickness, right?!!
I was rushed to the hospital, where it was first thought that I had a stroke. I was put through a bunch of tests such as a CAT scan, MRI of my brain, and lumbar puncture.
My diagnosis came back. I had multiple sclerosis. I was told there was medicine, however not to stop or heal the disease, but just stop the progression of it … maybe, AND that I would have flu like symptoms each day after the injection of the medication. My immediate thought was I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS!!!
With the damage already caused in my brain, they gave me 5 years until and wheelchair and 10 years until I was bedridden to die from the affects of the disease.
I was no longer in control of my body. I sat alone in my hospital bed, thought about my family, kids, and what was supposed to be my new, exciting career and asked WHY did God put this on me?
I came to realize very quickly it was put on me to figure out, reverse my prognosis and live my life helping others do the VERY same thing I was ABOUT to do for MYSELF!
I declined the medication and decided, after much resistance from my family, that I was going to put my core belief to the ULTIMATE test!! The belief was, if I remove interferences within my body, the body would heal itself. My job now was to locate those interferences.
I continued on my journey in school and, of course, still a mom of 3 active kids. I never wanted my kids to see my suffering. I didn’t want them to worry about me. They had never seen me sick before, and now I was suddenly debilitated.
I very often hid the pain, decreased movements on my right side, fatigue and other symptoms that came with MS. It was incredibly hard, but I had made the decision that nothing was going to stop me from getting well. It was the choice I made between LIFE OR DEATH.
This became my journey back to health – to locate the interferences, remove them and allow my body time to heal. This is exactly what I did. It took time, but I was seeing a lot of progress along the way which assured me that I was now on the right path.
I now live a life without limitations and, most importantly, in control of my body and health! NO more LIMITS on energy, movement, or anything for that matter. Hiking, camping, bike riding, vacations, EVERYTHING I LOVE … NO LIMITS.
It is incredible compared to where I was 10 years before. I am living proof of how amazing our bodies truly are. I am HEALTHIER now at 50 years old than ever before in my life. THIS was supposed to be the year I died due to the effects of the disease.
I was my first patient. That was 10 years ago. Now, I am helping patients all over the country. This is why I do what I do. I absolutely LOVE to help others find interferences in their health, remove them and watch them heal. No one is a prisoner to a diagnosis. It has been an incredible journey, one that I plan on staying on the rest of my life.
