I dragged myself into the kitchen, armed with a bin bag and emptied every cupboard, the fridge and the freezer of anything that had been boxed up and processed in a factory. My fridge was pretty bare after that!
ordered an online shop and filled it only with items that had grown on this earth, rather than made by man. I ordered ingredients I`d never heard of from the book, got myself a nutribullet and a vegetable steamer and some other items I needed.
And there began my healing. I juiced, and juiced, and juiced. I could literally feel the magnesium and potassium in those juices flooding my veins with goodness and slowly, but surely, I began to improve. There was a lot more to it than that, but the juices were something that really stick in my memory.
I had acupuncture, reflexology and massage which also helped enormously.
Today, I help people to make lifestyle changes that can bring about huge and life-changing effects for them. I can`t tell you how many times someone has told me that I have changed their life. Each and every time this happens, I feel so honoured and blessed that I have been able to help that person and have such a positive impact on their journey through their life.
I am a big believer that life is a journey with lots of chapters. Some chapters are happy, funny and positive... some are scary, sad and upsetting. But each chapter ends and a new one starts. The amazing capacity of the body to regenerate itself under the right conditions means that everyone has the chance to start a new happier, healthier chapter when the time is right.
Healing from a chronic illness doesn`t happen overnight, and it is something that even now, all these years later, I still monitor closely. I will never change the fact I have a genetic illness, it`s always going to be there. What I can do is be extremely vigilant and live my life as purely as possible to keep that genetic difference of mine in remission.
Healing takes time, dedication and effort, but when you rare ready, believe me... you are willing to try anything.
That`s me.... up there! Shouting it from the rooftops!!
