I refuse to accept that pain and illness are just part of everyday living. Chronic fatigue, chronic pain, chronic weakness, chronic brain fog, all of these “invisible illnesses” that are common side effects of the world that we live in today should not be things that we just learn to live with. This mindset is unacceptable, and I want to help you overcome all of these things with training and lifestyle changes.
You see, I’ve been in your shoes. While completing my undergraduate degree I became very sick. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and several other tick borne diseases that were plaguing my central nervous system. But, even after antibiotic treatments that rid me of all infections, I was still suffering from the same symptoms. I bet this story sounds familiar, huh?
Maybe you’ve felt so tired in the morning that when you try to wake up your body just feels paralyzed. Even rolling over in bed takes a monumental amount of effort. The pain that shoots down your leg when you finally do make yourself get out of bed is enough to make you want to crawl right back in. Forming words takes too much energy, reading requires too much focus, you want to see your friends, but you just don’t feel well enough to join them. I know exactly how it feels because I’ve been through all of this too.
I tried supplements and other therapies all to try and help “rebuild my system” (whatever the heck that means). My protocol, given to me by my doctor, was over a page long with expensive herbs and vitamins that took me at least 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night to complete. It was overwhelming, and it wasn’t working. Then finally, by the end of my senior year, I realized, “wait a second, maybe this approach isn’t right for me. Maybe I don’t need these supplements and therapies, maybe I need something else that western medicine isn’t providing.”
So I began to dive into reading and studying in order to figure out other ways I could approach in order to heal myself. Through diet, lifestyle changes, and exercise (something I never imagined myself having the energy to do) I’ve found a new protocol, one that doesn’t involve expensive pharmaceuticals and also allows me to feel the best I have since even before my Lyme diagnosis.
I believe that through training we can create certain physiological adaptations that are now addressing the root of what is happening at the cellular level. Autoimmunities and chronic illnesses occur when there are internal dysfunctions at the cellular level. Instead of masking your symptoms through medications, expensive therapies, and expensive supplements, consider trying other paths to help combat the internal dysfunction.
Through understanding physiology, I’ve developed certain training protocols that are designed to create certain adaptations that even people with chronic illnesses and autoimmunities can use to help feel better.
Now, please remember that I’m not a doctor, or a health coach, or a nutritionist, so please always consult your doctor or other medical professional before cutting off supplements, medications, protocols, etc. and before beginning a new routine.
