I am Cured

| 1 Comment

The definition of cured is ” relieve a person or animal of the symptoms of a disease or condition; to heal, restore to health, make/better.”

Today my RA doc called me with the results of my recent blood tests. All of my inflammation markers are NORMAL and my auto immune disease is cured! Wait what? I have been battling this disease for 8 years.  Over the years I have suffered through flare ups where I was in extreme pain, overwhelming fatigued, stayed in bed and even had to take steroids and pain meds. I have not had a flare up since September 2017! This is amazing! My doctor believes that all of the work I have been doing to heal my gut and body has worked! I still have arthritis in my knees and back, but the horrible debilitating auto immune disease is gone! This is so exciting!
So how did I do it? What really cured me? Honestly, I think it was s series of things that my nutritionist and I worked on. Here is a summary of what we did and are still working on.
  •  I am healing my gut and fixing the imbalance of candida (yeast) and bacteria in my body. This has been a very hard process ( I had to give up coffee and wine!), but results are paying off.
  • I decreased my stress level. I let go of things and people that were causing me stress. This has been very hard for me. I am a people pleaser and I always blame myself when things go wrong.  This is a work in progress, but I am learning to let go of the things I cannot control.
  • I changed my workout routines to accommodate what my body can handle. I have been weight training to support my muscles around the joints that have arthritis. A big thank you to my trainer Michelle at Total Woman Gym!
  • I am eating for my health and for what my body needs. I have learned to let go of the judgement and scrutiny from people who expect me to eat a certain way because I am a yoga teacher. I eat steak and bacon because my body needs it! I buy only high quality meat that is humanly raised.
  • I get regular check ups form my doctors and found doctors that are willing to work with me as I go through this holistic approach to my health. My RA doc is on board with what I am doing and so supportive. I am an advocate for my own health and well-being.
  • I am learning to love and accept myself. To trust myself and express my will. More on this on the next post!


Lastly, I want you to know that whatever you are going through, whether its physical or emotional pain, you can find your path to healing. Trust the process and accept that everyone heals differently and at their own pace. What works for one person, may not work for you. But, there is support out there. There are people that can guide you and help you along the way. Feel free to contact me for advice, and if I can’t help you, I can hopefully point you in the right direction.

I have been sharing the information I have learned about nutrition in workshops. If you missed them and would like to get the information contact me. We can set up a one on one session and go over the information. We can do this in person or via phone or Skype.


Have a beautiful day!
