I have always been drawn to the holistic side of life from a very young age. However, I really didn’t start down the holistic path until my senior year of Undergraduate school in 2007 as I was introduced to the concept of home births, midwives and doulas. I didn’t realize until then that I could have control of my own health and health outcomes…..I was intrigued. Ultimately, what inspired me to take the holistic plunge was my daughter’s conditions. She began to regress in development and no one could figure out why……after consulting with many doctors, no one could give me an answer except sending me to specialist after specialist. I got sick of this vicious circle…..the doctors diagnosed her with failure to thrive…..I decided to take matters in my own hands and embrace my knowledge in holistic health, allopathic medicine and researching background. After much research and putting the pieces of the puzzle together I figured out she had an inability to adequately absorb nutrients and failed to gain weight thus hindering her ability to develop normally. The culprit was excessive inflammation in the gut and sensitivities to dyes and preservatives. I changed her diet, gave her supplements and use essential oils for her mood issues…..lo and behold she gained 5 pounds and we started to see normal cognitive development. My path continues as I try to understand how modern life is hurting our quality of life with excess toxins we are constantly exposed to in our food, water, cleaning products and body products. We are over medicated as a society trying to treat the symptoms rather than finding and treating the root cause. My job as a Holistic Practitioner is to guide you with my skills, knowledge and handmade products to become a better a toxin free you, a better feeling you, and a healthier you.
In a previous blog post I discussed my 4 year old daughter’s sensory, failure to thrive problems and how the pediatrician wanted to send us to a GI doctor to figure out why she was not growing. (By the way that pediatrician kicked us out of her practice because we wanted an alternative vaccine schedule for my 2 year old). My husband and I figured out it was linked to her diet which I discussed in this previous blog post….. I found the main culprit to be the sugar she ingests. Since we altered her diet and eliminated sugar in her diet we have had great results such as her substantial growth (she was diagnosed failure to thrive in late 2014), her speech has greatly improved and HER BEHAVIOR is awesome (she literally transformed from what I was thought our next step was to contact a priest to a sweet little girl).read more
