My relationship with food has come a long way over the years.
Like many children, I was a very poor eater and extremely picky about my food choices. I just wasn’t interested in eating, and treated it like a chore. So as a child I was anemic, had digestive issues, and used to fall sick frequently and hence would end us missing school often.
Fast forward to adulthood, working in the stressful corporate world; I started feeling even sicker over the years. Being the perfectionist that I am, I would over work and strive for perfection even if it was killing me.
Enter chronic body pain, extreme exhaustion, mood swings and irritation, uncontrollable sugar cravings and horrible bouts of IBS. They literally overtook my life.
The pain became unbearable eventually. Just sitting at the computer even for half an hour or standing and cooking for a little while aggravated the pains. Sleep eluded me as I could never find a comfortable to position to sleep in.
As if that was not enough torture, my IBS became so bad that going out became a hassle, and I felt I always ’stuck in the toilet’.
My weight was creeping up slowly thanks to the insomnia, stress and lack of exercise.
I looked horrible and felt horrible. I used to be in tears, felt completely helpless and often questioned ’why me’? My life had changed for worse…
Going to the doctors was futile as I looked normal and had normal blood results. I was even told at one point that it was all in my head!
But I refused to give up. I kept digging and researching and finally figured out I had Fibromyalgia. The diagnosis was confirmed a few years later. All I was told to do was take pain killers! Every day. Several times if needed!
No doctor talked to me about the importance of food and lifestyle.
Frustrated and disillusioned I started to look at alternatives. Acupuncture, naturopathy, massage, chiropractors, home remedies, physiotherapy, kinesiology- you name it, I’ve tried it all!
The thirst for knowledge led me the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition to become a R.H.N (Registered Holistic Nutritionist), where I graduated with top honours.
You can find me listed on the CSNN Alumni Association list of practicing RHNs
I realised how by making small meaningful dietary changes, I was making a big positive impact on my health. Gradually I started to feel better, overcame my longing for sugar, strengthened my digestion and got my energy back. A beautiful side effect of these changes was a glowing, clear skin!
The pain from fibromyalgia and the occurrences of IBS has dramatically gone down, thanks to a cleaner, anti-inflammatory diet, and the wonders of homeopathy. There are still days when one or both flare up, but I can now live a close to normal life again. I even took up my childhood passion of dancing- a hobby I could never pursue as a child due to poor health.
I’m not perfect. I have my weak moments every now and then. But I try…ALWAYS.
With life-changing results I was experiencing, there was no way I could just keep all that knowledge to myself.
So here I am, with a sincere yearning to help you in your journey towards well-being.
