About Me

3

“Nobody escapes being wounded. We are all wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not ‘How can we hide our wounds?’ so we don’t have to be embarrassed but ‘How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?”
– The Wounded Healer

Our society praises strength while frowning on any sign of weakness. That’s why for years I kept my eating disorder and migraines secret until the migraines became so debilitating, I had to quit my medical career. It was the lowest point of my life.

The years following that decision were spent in severe pain, depression and hopelessness until I stumbled upon a conference that introduced me to the idea of “food as medicine”.

Soon after, I adopted a no-oil whole food plant-based diet – within 5 days my chronic headaches disappeared. I kept tweaking my diet and changed my lifestyle until I was free from migraines – I finally had my life back.

I can’t turn back time and regain the years that I’ve lost to migraine, but I can help others to discover the power of nutrition and live a life full of Qi, possibilities, hope and joy.
