My Journey - going from healing myself to becoming a healer

I’ve been searching for answers since I was a child as to why I never felt well and seemed to only get increasingly unwell over time. Over my lifetime I’ve seen countless doctors and alternative medicine practitioners and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to figure out what was wrong with me. My life consisted of jumping from specialist to specialist, chasing my symptoms, all seemingly unrelated to each other.

After decades of researching, completely changing the way I lived my life, and trying every treatment made available to me without much relief, I finally realized I was spending all my time and energy on doctors, treatments, supplements, eating the right food, etc and I was ignoring the root cause - that I had a limbic system impairment (also known as a maladapted stress response).

What is a limbic system impairment you ask? The limbic system is a set of structures in the brain that help us detect threats to our safety and wellbeing. Chronic stressors, such as infections, trauma, toxic exposures, extreme emotional or psychological stress can negatively impact brain function by activating the limbic system. This is the brain’s inherent response to stress and trauma, however, in some cases the brain’s limbic system can get stuck in a chronic fight, flight or freeze response and become impaired.

Once I was able to retrain my brain to change my response to my symptoms, I regulated my nervous system and then everything else I was doing for my health – living a healthy lifestyle, spirituality, etc. all fell into place and I started to THRIVE for the first time in my life. I went from being hopeless and bed bound to being full of joy and having more energy than I know what to do with! I learned how to manage my energy, unlearn unhealthy belief systems, set boundaries, develop a spiritual practice, and align with my true self. We are SO powerful we just need to learn how to harness it!  

I became a Certified Herbalist, Reiki Practioner, and Wellness Coach so I could help guide and support others who have been struggling and share the wisdom I learned on my journey. I believe I was put on this path to learn how to heal myself so I could empower others to heal themselves.

I hope you love these cards and that they’re as helpful to you as they were to me. If you’d like to work together please reach out to me, I’d love to support you.
