My turning point, lets be honest my breaking point, came in 2016. It was when I experienced my worst IBD flare and decided that there had to be another. I felt like a slave to my illness, it impacted my life in so many ways, it caused overwhelm, worry, disconnection, shame, embarrassment. It made me feel worthless at times and helpless & hopeless at others. It was not only the physical symptoms but the emotional and mental impact as well and I was DONE living this way! So it became my mission to find relief, release and freedom from IBD. I didn’t know how but off I went. And boy am I glad that I did. A year later, in 2017, I was in clinical remission, symptom free, and stopping remicade (infliximab).
This began my educational period. How had this happened? What had caused such a monumental change in my IBD, my well-being (mental, physical, emotional & spiritual) and the way in which I lived my life? I have the answer. I understand the connection between mind-body-soul, I understand epigenetics, the impact of trauma and past life experiences on the body and overall welling. I know the importance of taking a holistic approach. I know the power of doing this kind of work. I understand the importance of modern medicine but know we also need to provide the body with the right environment to heal. It’s a lot to sum up in a short About Me section.
I am six years into clinical remission and don’t feel that I have IBD. But not only have I healed my IBD, I have healed myself. I have gone from emotional outburst, emotional dysregulation, overwhelm, stress, exhaustion, disconnection to having clarity, peace, emotional regulation, feeling connected with self, others & life, living a fulfilling and joyful life that is aligned and on purpose.
Now I have the honour of working with others to help them to move into the life that they want to live, free from emotional burnout and disconnection. I am excited to be releasing a program just for the IBD community so they can experiece freedom from the limitations and anguish of IBD. I am living in alignment with my purpose from a place that is in flow and peaceful, something I never thought was possible. It is possible for you too. I can’t wait to work with you.
