My journey to a healthy lifestyle started with an unexpected diagnosis, Type 1 Diabetic. I was pregnant with my first child when I was given this diagnosis that drastically altered my life. I went through so called “education” classes & working with different doctors to understand and get a hold of my diagnosis. For years I felt out of control in my own body & had so much anger towards my disease. I needed to find a way to come to peace, for myself and also for the two children I have looking up to me.
It wasn’t until I came to Ideal Wellness and started taking my own control over my health that I found peace. I have learned that I am not my diagnosis. Yes, I have an autoimmune disease, but I will not be defined by it & I will have control over it. I have learned the right things that I need to fuel my body, not work against it. I have found a love for being in the kitchen & changed my habits to help me live a long and healthy lifestyle.
I truly believe in Susan’s message of health being the connection between your mind, body & soul. I am always growing, learning & changing. I have found a passion in my diagnosis to help others. I look forward to sharing my experience and aiding others with their journey to living & maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
