I know what it means to live with pain and try many avenues, to hand my health to modern medicine and be let down, and then blame myself. I have had a small handful of good experiences with both traditional and natural practitioners, for which I am very grateful, but much of my healing throughout my life has happened when I have fully invested in my own health, listened to my body, and my heart, and utilized nature.
I understand the guilt and self-shaming associated with not healing the way others do, and falling outside the normal parameters. I also understand the temptation to compare my life's journey with my body to the journey of others. With all the work I've done with AURA PERSONALITIES this last decade, I am more certain then ever that PERSONALITY PLAYS A HUGE PART IN PHYSICAL CONSTITUTION.
My brief, not all-inclusive, health history:
•I had chronic pneumonia, bronchitis, and immune struggles from birth through childhood and was loaded up with gamma globulin shots and antibiotics until I developed a life-threatening allergy to penicillin around age 10
•I was molested at early ages and sexually violated multiple times throughout my life which, research shows, greatly increases acid production causing long-term dental issues, emotional issues, and physiological issues
•I was pulled out of 6th grade for mono
•I have been in 3 severe car accidents, hit by drunk drivers in two of them, first one in my teens, last one three-years-ago-next-month, all 3 with emergency response teams that couldn't believe I survived, but chronic structural damage to prove they happened
•severe allergies to pollen all my young life, but developed asthma from smog at age 14, which I resolved almost entirely with a change of diet in my early thirties
•I went to the Amazon for my LDS mission in my early twenties and had chronic illness relieved in part only by natural whole food remedies from natives; complete healing happened only through three years of emotional healing work and a change in diet
•I went to HEALING HANDS SCHOOL OF HOLISTIC HEALTH in my late twenties
•I managed the health food store REAL FOODS MARKET in my early thirties
•With Real Foods Market, I helped pass the law for raw milk to be legal in Utah
•I almost died from a pulmonary embolism pregnant
•I recovered from pelvic floor damage through yoga, when nothing medical could help after 3 years
•My last visit to the hospital for liver toxicity from Tylenol (from their prescription for me post surgery), and then allergic reaction to their detox protocol, the hospitalist casually said, "well, I guess you just don't have a lot of options for pain" (very hard to hear only a few weeks after surgery that caused excruciating pain from nerve damage)
•I went home and turned wholely to herbs and essential oils to nourish my body to allow itself relieve pain with proper nutrients and so I could eventually tolerate physical therapy
•With an inability to incorporate most modern medication into my body, I have used whole foods, herbs, and essential oils for managing an extremely sensitive immune system, throughout, and am more committed than ever to my own well-being
I want to help transition you in your wellness journey to be that same champion for your own body, by working with you emotionally, and with lifestyle and nutrition, but most especially with an understanding of how your body operates based on your AURA PERSONALITIES LAYERS.
Lots of love, in however you are managing your health, I hope you feel supported. If I can give support via AURA PERSONALITIES & WELLNESS COACHING, I would love to!
