My Story

I began truly suffering from my autoimmune illnesses in 2004, around the age of 16, and started seeing doctors because of that at age 18. For years I was poked, prodded and tested for everything under the sun – only to end up with doctors telling me I was perfectly healthy! I knew that wasn’t the case, but what could I do about it?

By the end of 2012, I had gotten to the point where I was taking strong anti-inflammatory pills and many supplements every day, without which I couldn’t function at all. I regularly bled from my gums, I had trouble walking, I was constantly in digestive distress and I cried myself to sleep each and every night due to extreme joint pain. I knew something had to change.

I started the year 2013 off with “clean eating,” after my sister, who was taking a nutrition course, suggested I try it for my joint pain. It was amazing. Two weeks of clean eating had all but gotten rid of my once crippling joint pain. Clean eating led to gluten-free, which led to dairy-free, which has now led me to a paleo diet. I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been! I’m eating foods that nourish my body and I’m able to enjoy an active and fulfilling life.
