My Story


My journey with health and nutrition began about 10 years ago.  At the age of 25, I felt the need to live a healthier lifestyle since at that young age I was unusually tired, and did not have healthy eating habits.  I grew up eating a diet that included lots of fried and unhealthy foods.  As a college student, I began eating what was most affordable which included a lot of processed foods. Consequently, I was anemic.  This led me to change my nutritional lifestyle. 


I also was suffering abdominal cramping, bloating, and pain.  I had constipation and felt nauseous daily.  After a long year of several exams to identify the problem, I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  More frustration set in because I did not know the cause or any possible cures.  After persistent health complications, I became determined to improve my health. 


I met a wonderful Nutrition and Fitness Coach that guided me in learning healthy eating habits and exercise. This prompted me to pursue learning more about Health & Fitness and really make changes in my diet.  Although I began to feel better and some of the symptoms were reduced, I still experienced abdominal bloating everyday and constipation for several years following. 


Almost 7 years later, I learned that my abdominal distress was NOT due to having IBS but that I have a strong intolerance to gluten, grains and legumes even though I did NOT test positive for Celiac Disease.  After experimenting, I confirmed that my abdominal problems were due to having a strong intolerance to certain foods.  I made more changes to my diet and now I eat lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, good fats and quality proteins.  I became captivated with eating whole foods that are loaded with good nutrition.


Finally, as a result of making these changes, I overcame the day to day crippling symptoms that I experienced.  It is amazing to be symptom free!  I now have more energy, mental alertness, improved sleep, and greater over-all wellness that has led to a stronger sense of confidence and self-esteem.  I have also gained a greater overall ability to enjoy my life.
