My journey began in 2000 when I completely lost my health. I suffered from severe unrelenting and debilitating fatigue, I literally could not even get off the couch some days. I had such severe digestive issues I could not be farther than 10 feet from a bathroom at all times and even cancelled many date nights with my husband and get togethers with friends because I was so sick. I had severe joint pain, muscle aches, slurred speech, my limbs felt like 20 pound weights, I had memory loss, difficulty concentrating, my legs would give out underneath me and I would fall. At times, it would get so bad I would lay in bed for days before it would let up.
I didn't just search the internet trying to find some guru to follow. There are many testimonials out there about people who researched and found their own information to heal themselves and often they do have some great information, others however also have some dangerous information mixed with truth.
I went back to school, in my nutrition class we had a 1000 page nutrition textbook and we studied every nutrient, vitamin, mineral, however, we also studied research as well all kinds of dietary patterns from Standard American Diet to Raw foods, fruitarian, low carb etc...... I also studied the physiology and biochemistry behind nutrition.
In 2006 I received a Bachelors degree in Natural Health Science, In 2006 I also received a certificate in the fundamentals of raw culinary arts from Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, in 2007 I received an essentials of raw culinary arts certificate, in 2008 I received a certificate in plant based nutrition from Cornell University, in 2010 I received a certificate as a nutritional herbalist, in 2010 I also received a second bachelors degree in Natural health science with an emphasis in clinical nutrition and women's health. I have continued to study and research nutrition over the last 8 years. I have researched all of the popular 'fad' diets and have found the optimal diet supported by the largest body of research that has not been supported or funded by special interest groups or misinterpreted by unscrupulous marketers looking to make a profit off of consumers ignorance.
