When I got "sick" around 21 years old, my whole body and mind were on fire — autoimmunity, gastritis, sensitivities, SIBO, bloating, reflux, nausea, anxiety, period pain, and more.
I was nauseous and vomiting, in and out of medical centers with a burning throat and stomach. Our most basic need – food — felt stripped away.
Hypervigilance, depression, dizziness, brain fog, and migraines unfolded. Doctors kept throwing medications and prescribing diagnoses, which made me sicker.
Naturally, I began veering towards holistic modalities. I knew deep in my bones that the body could heal itself.
As I made great strides in my healing, I could hear and feel my calling to guide others. When my soul speaks, it's loud like thunder booming – there was no way I could ignore it.
I became trained in homeopathy, which is an amazing modality I still use, as well as Functional Medicine, labs, and Nutritional Therapy. My practice was booming with hundreds of client cases. Yet, I was burning on the inside with gaping holes I saw in wellness, spirituality, and healing.
In many ways, the labs and labels everyone sought weren't actually healing. They fed ego that wants validation for what's wrong; rather than energetically, viscerally, systemically, healing from the inside out.
When you think you're destined to your prognosis or circumstance – whether that's a health issue, overthinking, trouble falling asleep; your job, relationship, financial status, or beyond — you're disempowering yourself.
You're putting the healing outside of you. You think, "If I can just get rid of the bacteria, THEN the pain will go away. If I can just find the treatment for x, THEN the pain will go away. If I can numb the anxiety, THEN the pain will go away."
But it isn't true. The vibration causing whatever you want to break free from still LIVES inside your wiring.
No matter how many pharmaceuticals, diets, or supplements you try; labs you order; or therapy talks you sit in; there is a vibration and pattern INSIDE YOU that controls your life, well-being, body, and thoughts everyday.
It became crystal clear that you can’t outsource your healing. You’ve got to do the work. At the same time, who you choose to be guided by and how you take yourself there is pivotal; because connection is everything.
