WHY I DO WHAT I DO
Ten years ago, my life was turned inside out.
It started with being prescribed Metformin®, a medication for insulin resistance, that saw me diagnosed with histamine intolerance.
A series of severe adverse reactions to medications, saw me diagnosed with mast cell activation, chronic fatigue syndrome, sub-clinical Cushing's Syndrome, and an acquired brain injury.
I then moved into a water-damaged house and was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome.
The pivotal moment in my health journey was when a professor of immunology told me, " you need to learn to keep yourself well without medication.” I could hear myself thinking, "what do you mean I'm sick" but then the penny dropped.
I was busy getting sick instead of getting better! What's more, I had no idea how to keep myself well, which was why I was busy getting sick.
And, so my health and wellness journey began.
I sought out cutting-edge mentors who could teach me what I needed to know to restore my health and continue to do so.
Today I can eat just about anything I want (except for gluten, cow's milk, and nightshades!) and have largely been able to restore my health.
After mastering my health, I have been paying forward those teachings by mentoring hundreds of people on how to get busy getting healthy.
When I see that quantum shift in a client's health and they graduate having mastered their own health, it is deeply rewarding to me.
I also continue to advocate for better prescribing practices. I've appeared in an Australian Health Inquiry and obtained two recommendations.
I've also appeared on the National News and A Current Affair promoting better prescribing practices.
This is why I do what I do.
