Liz's Personal Healing Journey
Liz almost died just days after she was born. She contracted several life threatening infections at the hospital. Her left leg was swollen larger than her head due to one infection, and the doctors decided each hour if it needed to be amputated. After bombarding little baby Liz with endless rounds of antibiotics, she finally recovered and survived.
However, Liz was never given any specific strategies to recover from this traumatic start to life and her digestive system was severely damaged due to the massive doses of antibiotics. She lived in perpetual stress after such a traumatic start to life.
These issues spiraled into worse health problems over the years but Liz was never able to find the right help to restore her body to a place of stability and balance. She lived in a state of exhaustion, pain, stress and anxiety for much of her life. Doctors told her she was fine even though she never felt that was true.
Finally, after learning to heal herself using the profound investigation and healing tools of functional nutrition, Liz experienced a new lease on life in her 40s.
She no longer gets hives after every meal. She no longer wakes up in the middle of night unable to breathe. She no longer wakes up with a belly ache every morning. Her joint pain has subsided significantly. Athletic stamina has improved and with less painful joints, she can go even backpacking! Liz's memory and concentration is better in her 40s than ever in her life. Hormonal fluctuations no longer cause pain or mood swings. She's not hungry all the time. She's not binging uncontrollably on sugar every night. She is not drawn to alcohol as before. She sleeps more deeply, thinks more clearly and truly gained more confidence and a new lease on life.
Because she has personally experienced the immense benefits of better health, Liz is passionate about helping others identify the real imbalances in their bodies and finding ways to heal earlier in life rather than later.
