I grew up with chronic illness—not the typical fever-and-bed rest kind, but a slow-developing condition with seasonal allergies, childhood earaches, and eventually, Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis, Depression, and IBS.
Through research and a little luck, I discovered a hidden health secret: Chronic Inflammation is responsible for 75-90% of all diagnoses. So I created a unique approach focused on identifying your unique causes of inflammation rather than masking your symptoms by buying pharmaceutical products the rest of your life.
My message is simple: inflammation is your first-responder. A fight-or-flight defense part of all chronic diseases. This is supported by science. (see references below)
Your body constantly adapt to your environment, things both seen and unseen, positive and negative. The more your body is surrounded by threats, the more inflammation and chronic illnesses you will experience.
By intentionally shaping your environment, you can redirect your body’s adaptation toward health and healing rather than fight-or-flight. I help you understand what logical, science-backed options you have to do that.
