In order to improve my energy levels years ago, I needed to improve my digestive health first. I did not really know how to go about this, I did not understand how my body systems were interconnected or how the food I was eating made such a huge impact on my life.
Do you want to feel more energetic and alive? Do you want to spend time with your family and friends, and fulfill your destiny on this earth?
Should I even say, “feel more alive!"
I have been where you are. If you are feeling sick and tired and not knowing why your body won’t cooperate, I can relate. I am now over 50 years and have lived the last 10 learning about how my body works so I can feel the way I want to feel. It was not easy to improve my digestion and learn what was causing my low energy levels.
Do you find you are on the same journey?
I homeschooled both of my boys and gave up full-time employment since my first son was born in 1996. I stayed home and devoted my entire life to raising and educating my two sons.
My stress levels were very high and I had to take on way more than I could handle outside of this as well, including extracurricular activities.
I had to step down from leadership in my homeschool group because I just did not have the energy to keep going. I often got sick and my energy levels were very low in the winter and it took me weeks to feel better.
Do you ever catch yourself saying, “My hormones are out of balance!”
Well, my hormones were also out of whack and it got worse after I turned 42. I started to have digestive problems and stomach pain. I then became sensitive to molds and perfumes and humid weather in the summer with a high smog count. I ended up on an inhaler during the hot humid summer months and I experienced numerous sinus and bladder infections. My health was at an all-time low.
Maybe you can relate.
Also, I did not realize that stress was connected to the chemical burdens on my body from the food I was eating which tended to be a lot of processed foods which I thought were ok for me to consume on a regular basis.
I took out everything I could and attempted to use any type of detox formula that promised a positive outcome. However, I only suffered nausea and started to develop skin conditions to the point of getting very bad eczema on my legs and my face. Needless to say, I was a mess.
Maybe you have found yourself searching for the “magic pill” to turn your health around.
I couldn’t figure out what happened to me. I developed an irritable bowel and I was afraid to eat anything with sugar lest I come down with an infection. This was my wake up call.
The colonoscopy and endoscopy found nothing. This made me more upset because I knew something was terribly wrong with my system.

It was when I started having dreams of tables of food that I could not eat and started to lose a lot of weight that I decided, “enough already”!
I spent loads of money on supplements, detox formulas, naturopathic doctors and time until I found the right person to work with me and get me back on track.
Do you find yourself in the same circumstances?
I was determined to get well and find the energy to be strong and vibrant for my family. With the right practitioner, I was able to start moving forward and soon did not need a puffer anymore, my digestion improved and my energy started returning.
Being tired all the time was starting to be a thing of the past.
Another tool was positive self-talk. I kept saying to myself that I was going to be stronger than before. I also included a lot of prayer and belief in my healing. And so I am today.
I have overcome a lot of my former health challenges and struggles to maintain a body of balance every day. At 54 it is always a work in progress!
