My Old Biography
It’s been a rough road but I have never felt sad, lonely, or unfixable. My faith in God has always kept me hopeful. My supportive friends and family have kept me happy. And my willingness to change has made me wiser.
I’m currently on 9 different medications plus tens of other supplements. I don’t ever remember not having to take a pill. I’ve been on meds for over 20 years. Although I’m on a gazillion medications and treatments, I believe that food is all the medicine we need. If we eat correctly all our problems (acne, stomach-aches, headaches, immune disorders and yes even cancer) can disappear.
I have decided to try functional medicine, which focuses on finding the underlying problem instead of covering the symptoms for relief. I have a goal to be medicine-free by 2015.
I have been eating organic for 2 or 3 years but have been truly committed to a complete transformation for 3 months. That means (under the supervision of a functional medicine doctor) I have not had gluten, eggs, or sugar. I haven’t had much dairy except for a little butter. It sounds like I am starving myself. But no. I have had the time of my life making awesome dishes from scratch. I want you to know it’s possible and much easier than you think. I hope I can inspire you to make gradual changes. Each day you complete your goal is a major accomplishment that should be celebrated.
Join me. I will share tidbits I learn from my doctors and other inspiring people. Some recipes I have adapted from the web and some I have created on my own, but all easy!
If you actually read through this description, you must love me. Thank you!
