I’m Michelle. I’m so glad you found my site! I know I’m supposed to tell you a long dramatic story of a hero’s journey from a debilitating disease to full abundant health. Well, the truth is I don’t have one.
You see, my story may very well be as common as yours. It started in my twenties to early thirties. I basically started to slowly develop what most women would say were mild everyday ailments of life. I was tired. Very tired. But I had two kids and a nursing career. Wasn’t I supposed to be tired?
My stomach aches would come and go with acid reflux and what one would refer to as irritable bowel syndrome. I also felt overwhelming anxiety and depression on and off when my kids were small and my joints were achy almost all the time. I really just thought all of this was part of life. Most of my friends had one or more of these complaints too so who was I to feel differently?
In my early thirties, the exhaustion became pretty bad and my back started to give me real problems. I distinctly remember shopping at the grocery store when the pain shot down to my foot and I could barely walk. My only saving grace was to lean onto the grocery cart like an old woman. I was told I had bulging discs and to take over the counter or prescription drugs for the pain. This didn’t feel right for me. I am sensitive to pills and I would be knocked out cold if I took any narcotics.
Now, this is the part where I tell you I had an awakening or my life dramatically changed overnight by making one simple change.
Well, sorry, that is not my story. I am a very transparent person so I must tell you the truth. The truth is that these ailments are no longer an issue for me. I have absolutely no joint pain (unless I overdo it at the gym). I have no more issues with stomach aches when I eat, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, or exhaustion either. My moods have improved tremendously! I can honestly tell you that I have gained a new outlook on life! Most days I feel a complete sense of joy and gratitude for my healthy life!
This did not happen overnight and there was no magic pill. I have always had an inner quest for answers. I sought out numerous alternative healing modalities and even went back to school to pursue a career in Holistic Health and Nutrition. In 2022 I became certified as an Integrative Health Practitioner. I am constantly evolving and molding my practice as I gain more insight as to how we can heal our bodies naturally. Currently I am working on my level II IHP certification.
My health improved over time but I was still sick a lot. I was always having stomach aches and getting colds and fevers easier than other people. I didn’t discover that I had an extreme or rare disease. I was just as common of a person as anyone.
The healthy eating approach helped my back improve and overall I felt better than I did in my younger years, but something was just off. My fatigue would pop it’s ugly head in from time to time to remind me to keep digging for more answers.
Now, this is where the story gets good! I finally found my answers! It was a technique called the Morphogenic Field Technique. The Holistic Practitioner I found tested my neurological reflexes and ultimately uncovered the true reason for my long-standing vague ailments.
I had several food intolerances and immune challenges that were blocking my body from healing. Once we detected these, I followed her whole food-based and herbal supplementation protocol and slowly unpeeled the layers to the healthy person I am today!
Working with this program changed my life so dramatically that I decided to become certified in this technique myself.
I feel like my story is an extremely common one. I also feel like it is my calling to help other women who may not know that they can honestly thrive and not just survive. I would absolutely love to work with You!
