The medical system is broken. Doctors are telling people they are fine.. when they are not. How do you know what to do and where to go? Where I grew up, structure, hard work and discipline were a must. I grew up in the strictest of the Amish communities, until the age of 19 when I decided to jump off a 15 foot roof and run away, leaving behind my family, community and everything I ever knew. I had $20.00 in my pocket, an 8th grade education, no job, no social security number, and nowhere to live. I ran away from my entire community for many reasons. I am forever grateful for the tools the community and culture taught me.
From a very young age I learned how to have a work ethic, discipline and follow through. The things many people struggle with in today's society. Today, as a Functional Nutrition Practitioner, I have helped hundreds of women overcome their health struggles by implementing these crucial steps (discipline and follow through) they need in their day to day life for a successful and vibrant lifestyle.
