In 2007, I was very sick and suffering from extreme fatigue and dehydration. 

 At the age of 35, I was experiencing migraines, acne, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, fibroids, peri-menopause and anxiety attacks (simultaneously) from working in a high stress environment and choosing to let restaurants cook for me more than I cooked for myself.

After 6 months of running tests,  visiting a Hematologist every 2 weeks and having a bone marrow extraction, I was diagnosed with "Benign Neutropenia" (an autoimmune disorder), given 4 medications and suggested to have a partial hysterectomy. I was totally shocked! How could it be that the only solution was for me to take medications and undergo surgery at such a young age?

The confusion of the doctors who thought I had leukemia, lupus or some form of a rare illness and the physical breakdown of my body forced me to alter my mindset and my habits towards giving myself the quality attention that I deemed necessary for providing to everyone else. 

 I am happy to share that after months of personal research and connecting with someone who taught me how to eat for optimum health, I gave up eating meat and my acne cleared up immediately which made me extremely curious as to why. I began to do more extensive research on the healing power of foods, herbs and oils and I'm happy to share that I healed myself naturally from all of the ailments above without medications or surgery. Yes, my lifestyle already included excercising. The only thing I changed was my eating habits and this my friend made all the difference in the world.
