My Wellness journey
It’s been 2 years since I spent 6 days in a hospital room, recovering from the worst pain I have ever imagined. Digestive issues had plagued me for at least 6 years by this time, and I was truly at the end of my rope. As I was released to go home, with no direction and nothing more than follow up testing to look forward to, I was tired of my doctor telling me that the tests were clear and “if you feel pain again, just come back.” No. I was over it. Spending time in hospital rooms and doctor’s offices and assessment clinics, to consistently get the same answer wasn’t acceptable any longer. In addition to the increased tension at work, I was anxious all the time, depressed and I felt I was continuing down a dangerous spiral. I decided to book an appointment with a Naturopath, and it was the best decision of my life! With a simple Food Intolerance Test, we found that 90% of my daily food intake was killing me. By removing these foods, boosting some vitamins over the period of a few weeks, and some rest, I was feeling better than I had in YEARS! Now, I have always worked with Crystals, gemstone and created natural skincare, but the addition of proper nutrition really jumpstarted my wellness journey and my desire to assist others in healing.
Flash forward to today, March 20, 2019 were I currently own and run a Holistic Boutique filled with healing skincare, Ayurvedic ingredients, crystals and so many wonderful treats for the mind, body and soul. After completing my Level 1 and 2 Reiki certification, my personal wellness journey continues to evolve and I am so excited to share the learnings and benefits of light energy with all!
