Here’s an eye-opener: as of this year, nearly half of of the U.S. population has been diagnosed with some form of a chronic illness. That’s 177 million people! Maybe you're one of them—I am. Many of us are navigating through a life of new challenges and circumstances that few of us were prepared for. Life can really throw curveballs, which certainly can bring us to our knees sometimes. And I can attest—the learning curve can be pretty steep.
When you feel sick, you have to readjust every aspect of your life. Suddenly you’re having to rebalance everything—diet, schedule, physical activity, work, play—around your new no. 1 priority, which is healing and feeling well again. I know firsthand it can be scary, isolating, and just plain exhausting. My own health journey involves some pretty harrowing twists and turns (pain from a young age, a thyroid condition, colon disorder, even a parasite infection tossed into the mix). The struggle is real; I know your pain because I lived it.
Dealing with chronic health issues at a young age can certainly make you feel sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. But after many years of trials and tribulations, I decided I had to start taking matters into my own hands, and committed to thriving through the difficult experience that was being handed to me.
If I can do it, you can too! As a health and wellness coach with tons of personal experience in this arena, I’m on a mission: to dispel the myths, support the cause, and prove that there’s a silver lining to be found when you reframe a health crisis into a healing opportunity. Stay with me! It’s a wild ride—but it’s one that may transform your life.
