I believe in and have experienced the healing power of food. Real food. Whole food.
Several years ago, I was going about my business of working a full-time job in biotech clinical development, being a new mom to two older, internationally adopted children (a significant source of stress even though they are awesome kiddos!), and eating the “healthy version” of the Standard American Diet when I began having debilitating digestive and hormonal issues. Basically, my body was broken.
After a variety of failed attempts to conventionally manage my symptoms (which is how allopathic medicine addresses my sicknesses), I was forced to rethink how I was going to regain my health. Over a fairly short period of time, I cut out all processed foods. And I mean ALL. I don’t really know if I knew what I was doing. Intuitively, I think I knew it was what was making me sick.
And it was what was making me sick. In fact, it was the cause of things I had come to accept as “normal”.
Here’s the maddening part, I was eating what I was supposed to eat when I got sick. I was eating the Standard American Diet (high grains, relatively low fat, yada-yada).
What healed me was anything but the Standard American Diet.
I became deeply interested in the mechanism of my healing. What I came to learn blew my mind.
And it’s here that I share what I’ve learned with you.
I help people bust myths about food and redefine what is possible for their health!
