After a picky childhood diet including McDonald’s and white bread PB & J sandwiches followed by recurring ear infections and a bout of sore throats and digestive problems in the longer term, I discovered the importance of proper nutrition. These subsequent illnesses taught me to do some investigating into why public health is in the state that it is today. Growing up, I came across so many people who were hurting and, sadly, on their way to death with little to no hope whatsoever. Most people I met had simply thrown their hands up and were either convinced or decided that they had no power. From those on dialysis to those dependent on insulin to survive, or others suffering from ruthless pain due to fibromyalgia, I knew there had to be something behind all of these life- threatening problems that ailed so many and ruin their lives.
I learned about Monsanto, how our soil is being depleted, the genetic code of our food supply is being modified, plant life being sterilized and patented, and junk food is being subsidized. No wonder my health was in the condition that it was since childhood, and so many others were in the states they were. On my journey of discovering what it really means to live a healthy life, I realized that in order to become the best possible version of myself, and to contribute to the best world possible, I must take full responsibility for what I choose to ingest and how that makes me feel– as well how it affects the world around me!
Since this realization, I have been fully astonished by the power of nutrition to heal. I learned of a Nutrition program offered by the Nutritional Therapy Association and discovered even more seemingly miraculous accounts and methods of healing while gaining my certification as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). I’m now a practicing NTP who loves to help others support their own bodies to heal any health complaints that need to be turned around.
Needless to say, I’ve developed quite the passion for nutrition and for the resultant power we all have over our health and well-being as individuals and as a collective. I’m here to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated over these years in my own research and in school as well as in the clinical setting. This is done so we can spread optimal health and well-being across our planet, making it more hospitable for all of us in the process.
