If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.” Hippocrates.
From Chronic To Cured started as a blog website and Facebook page in August 2019, to chronicle my progress while I did the Medical Medium’s Thyroid Healing Cleanse for three months.
I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis (under-active thyroid) in 2001, and more recently diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) in 2014. This was triggered by the immense stresses that occurred through caring for my very sick husband, Matthew, who passed away in August 2015 at 36 years of age.
I had been told that there was no known medical cure for both my illnesses, and I would just need to manage the CFS and take medication to control the Hashimotos for the rest of my life. I could not work and my days consisted of resting in bed, headaches, joint pain, brain fog, inflammation, and not even having enough energy to feed my daughter, let alone myself.
I had never been happy with the advice from my doctors as my symptoms didn’t stop, and so I decided to take it upon myself to try alternative therapies to see if they improved my energy levels, as I was sick of being sick and not being able to play with my growing daughter, Eleanor.
So I started to research the effect of toxins in the environment and household on humans. I attended workshops to learn about lowering my toxic load which could be contributing to my body’s symptoms. I swapped out all my household and body products to natural products or made them myself from natural household ingredients.
I also researched how my nutrition and water intake could have been affecting my day to day wellness, along with researching a breakthrough redox signalling cell support supplement and other natural remedies to boost my immune system. I even researched if there were others who had recovered from my conditions and what it was that they did.
I became a sponge for information to take back that sense of control, but it was a slow process.
I began to improve in my body and symptoms by lowering my toxic load and utilising the redox signalling supplement. But it wasn’t until I discovered the root cause of my CFS and Hashimotos Thyroiditis that really helped me heal fully! A friend recommended a book called Medical Medium, by Anthony William, which suggests that the root cause of many chronic autoimmune illnesses are viruses, in particular the Epstein-Barr Virus. This book basically described the last seven years of my life and suggested ways to starve the viral cells and balance my gut to improve my health! Well it was a massive light-bulb moment that raised my sense of control over actually being able to heal myself to a whole new level!!
Fast forward to now, and I have fully recovered from CFS (within 6 months)! I had found the missing piece to my health puzzle! I now wake up every day feeling rested, have a shower, clean my house, make wholesome ‘clean’ foods, walk most days, attend social events, take Eleanor to the park (who is almost 11 years old now), and finally have the energy and clear brain function to start my own home natural wellness business to help others.
Through my own healing and study, I developed my five pillar ‘Sanctuary of Balanced Wellness’ program (see below diagram). This program is about developing lifelong foundational wellness tools, to empower women and mums to take back control of their health, and allow their body to heal, naturally.
If you’re ready to take back control of your health, with me as your cheerleader, please don’t hesitate to contact me or book in a complementary 20 minute introductory consultation. I would love to hear from you!
