I can’t believe its been as long as it has.. i’ve really missed this space, of being able to share my journey with you in the hope that I can help another on a smiliar journey. I’ve really missed you all!
I don’t know where to start really, as so much has happened over these last 7 months. Its been a very challenging part of my life and I hoped to be able to write by now that I’m better and healthy again, but sadly that is not the case just ‘yet’ .. I am still very much healing.
I shared in my last blog post that went out back in October that I was suffering with burn out and adrenal fatigue, and after a year of lots of pushing and stress it all got the better of me. So I was taking time out to heal and reboot.
My journey however turned out to be very different than I imagined and after months of chronic unrelenting symptoms and feeling very ill. My gut instinct always pushing me forwards for more answers than just chronic fatigue or M.E, I knew there had to be a root cause to this seemingly sudden health crash.
“Always Trust Your Gut Instinct.”
Finally in January I got the answer I was looking for – the root cause was actually Chronic Lyme Disease and co infections and WOW have I learnt ALOT in these last 10 months. (i’ll be sharing more in the coming weeks about this )
Now this wasn’t how I imagined my life to go.. I was about to launch my new website, I had plans universe! Do you hear me ..?!
” Sometimes the path is very different to what you had in mind.. but there is always a reason. “
I’ve had to surrender (some days kicking and screaming) to a path that is not exactly what I wanted, putting it mildly.. But the core of me believes that things happen for a reason. Even the really shit things! (excuse the language, but its really the only word to use in this context! )
I’ve learnt so much about chronic illness’s and really investigating and researching to get to the bottom of my own. (It’s in my nature to research, I have always had a thirst to know the ‘truth’.) Needless to say my GP wasn’t exactly helpful and I had to do it on my own. Luckily because of my back ground and health coach training I knew what to do and where to go.
‘ I WILL make a light shine in this darkness.’
I’ve decided I am going to use this experience to help others going through similar things and I have started my training to become a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner. ( I will share more in my blog post’s soon about this too! ) but in short I’m going to be able to get actual answers and lab tests done for my clients on how their adrenals are working, hormones etc and be able to write very individualised healing protocols. SO EXCITED
There are so many people going through similar health issues such as a on going lack of energy and fatigue no matter what they do and other symptoms, just to be told that its a blanket diagnosis of M.E , Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia.
‘Your Body Is Unique,’
The body doesn’t just decide to attack itself or stop working.. there is always a underlying root cause/stress on the body..
I’m really excited and honoured to be talking at The Shape Your Life online summit. and be able to share my experience in more depth and reach out to others that are wanting to get to the bottom of their own ongoing health problems.
I’ll be sharing what lab testing I’ve had done and where I recommend to go and what to do if you have ongoing chronic symptoms & chronic illness.
