So glad you are here to learn how to take control of your health! Here is some info about me.
I was like you. I ate food made by other people and used products that were labeled, “natural”, thinking they were “safe”.
Then I had kids. And I got more vigilant. I became more curious and researched the heck out of everything before giving them to my family. And I wanted nothing but the best for my family.
But while I tried my best, I know I fed them the wrong foods, in wrong containers (probably endocrine disruptors like BPA), and bathed them in toxic chemicals. But given limited resources and information available at the time, I had less choices. No Whole Foods. No Environmental Working Group. No Moms Clean Air Force. And certainly, no blogs to read about toxic crap I was exposing my kids to.
So, I became a Chiropractor because “I” wanted to control my family’s health. And during my training, in Chiropractic school, I learned some disturbing facts about what we were doing to our health and the environment.
And there were NOT pretty.
After graduating Chiropractic School with Magna Cum Laude and two kids later (My son was 6 months old and I had a daughter while attending Chiropractic College.), I started a family practice.
I had a very demanding practice while raising a young family and I was torn between the guilt of being a way from my kids and my patients. So after much internal debate, I sold my practice when my kids were in elementary school and became a stay at home mom. But my quest for healthier lifestyle continued and awareness of toxic world increased. In addition, my kids’ health was getting worse. They started to become intolerant or sensitive to multiple types of food, began to show signs of worsening Eczema, Asthma, and stress from being vigilant about everything they ate.
I was determined to cure their food allergies so I started researching why so many kids are becoming allergic to foods. I found my answers. Sadly, it’s nothing we did; it was the medical care (overuse of antibiotics), animals prophylactically given antibiotics, increased (often unnecessary) C-section procedures, Genetically Engineered foods, pesticide exposure, toxic chemicals in every day products, and much much more….causing their gut health to deteriorate. This is just ONE scenario but there are so many unsettling causes that are affecting the health of our families.
So now, I am on a mission to get everyone informed about your health and what you can do to prevent sickness.
