During my time trying to build a finance career and indulging in the Bermuda island nightlife, I became very run down. I felt a debilitating fatigue and was sick often. I went to the doctor at the age of 37 and was diagnosed with Epstein Bar Virus, a urinary tract infection, and hypothyroidism. It took months to feel somewhat normal again through rest and medication. This is an all too familiar story I hear about how our health is treated and monitored today. I carried on this way for years, increasing my medication due to relapsed attacks of Epstein Bar Virus.
I decided it was time to move out of the island life and moved to the NYC hedge fund world in early 2011. I wasn’t quite ready to go back to my native homeland in Nova Scotia, Canada!
I wasn’t in NY long before I met my husband, Don, that same year. Being a bit older and wanting kids, we moved quickly and were married 18 months after our first date, followed by our first son one year later. Working in the finance world of NYC as a first-time mom who continued to struggle with hypothyroidism took its toll. With debilitating fatigue and a “dark cloud” over my head sometimes turned into a storm of emotions, my husband decided he wanted out. Desperate to feel good again, I started looking for answers as to WHY I was feeling this way, and happened upon a lecture with Dr. G in NYC in 2014. I discovered a possible solution with his guidance and made a commitment to work with him as a client. IT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER.
Not only does my blood work prove it. So does my happy marriage with Don, vibrant energy, and happy disposition as a 48 year old mom to 3 young healthy boys, Cole, Connor, and Callen. I had a complete life turnaround by taking action and putting my thyroid symptoms and debilitating fatigue into remission. How did I do it? By learning a great deal about my health and disease, following a strict nutrition and supplement protocol, managing my stress, and exercising daily. I applied my new found knowledge and fought back. Was it easy? NO. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY. Has my life improved? MORE THAN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE.
I was so amazed by my life turnaround that I quit my NYC finance career in 2017 to dedicate my life to educating and helping anyone who can relate to what I’m saying. If you’re in a place of feeling like CRAP all the time because of health symptoms, I want to help you. The problem I have found with a large majority of people is that many do not have the knowledge or coaching/accountability to make the lifestyle changes that are required to take back control of their life. Most also don’t believe that LIFESTYLE changes can actually make a huge difference for them. It does. The life you lead can be healthy, full of energy, and largely symptom-free. With a bit of willpower and accountability to yourself (and perhaps your kids/family), I will HELP YOU turn things around.
