Master Certified Health & Wellness Coach

I was diagnosed with Remitting-Relapsing MS in 1987.  Through the years I’ve had several exacerbations that have left me blind, numb from top of head to bottom of foot, bed-ridden, in wheelchair, can’t even hold a pen to write, couldn’t bath, get dressed/undressed by myself or even feed myself and the MS hugs were terrible.

 

With MS hugs some people experience pain, but more often feel tightness around their ribs and sometimes find it hard to breathe. The MS hug gets its nickname from the way the pain wraps itself around your body like a hug or a girdle. These involuntary muscle spasms are also called girdling or MS girdling.

Fast forward to November 2017,  I had an immediate onset of chronic fatigue which  plagued my life.  I was literally sleeping 20 hours a day.  It greatly impacted my daily life & career. Shortly after onset I developed migraines, which I’ve never had a day in my life.

I had developed chronic short term memory loss,  severe brain fog,  little to no appetite. During this time the MS had progressed to Secondary-Progressive. My body was failing and I was near death. I saw myself slipping down the long dark rabbit hole.

At this point I knew I had to take back control of my health & my body but I didn’t know how.  I was sick & tired of feeling sick & tired.  How many of you can relate to this?

I began my health and wellness journey and also enrolled in school with the International Association of Wellness Professionals (IAWP).  I soon learned that food is medicine {functional medicine}.

I am now living a happy, healthy, energetic life thanks to me making the smartest decision I’ve ever made of taking back control of my health, naturally. It all starts with mindset.

I truly want to help & serve others. I have spent years researching information on MS and wrote a book, Blue Fingers Brass Knuckles. It’s a great self-help book for newly diagnosed with MS.

I’m truly excited to share with other women living with MS how to take back control of your health and increase your energy levels, the holistic way.

Look for my Fatigued to Fabulous program.
