What lead you to become a Wahls certified?
I was suffering from a growing collection of autoimmune disorders, including Chronic Fatigue, Atypical MS, and ASIA syndrome.
I had fibromyalgia and lost ALL my short term memory for over 2 years. The pain and inflammation were so bad I could not even walk to my mailbox and had to hold on to walls to avoid falling.
When I thought it couldn’t get worse, my son with autism suddenly developed catastrophic PANDAS/PANS (a form of autoimmune encephalopathy) which included tics, OCD, and seizure-like events that were so severe, doctors recommended that we institutionalize him. I shudder to think where our lives would be if we hadn’t found the Wahls Protocol®.
Thanks to our hero, Dr. Wahls, our lives are very different today, because we’re BOTH thriving! Funny thing- before the Wahls Protocol, I had never eaten Kale or Swiss chard in my life- but now I plan my garden and meals around them! I was drawn to becoming a Certified Wahls Health Practitioner after our life-changing experiences, so I could share this incredible, comprehensive healing program with the world.
We’re living proof- Miracles do happen!
How has what you learned benefitted your practice?
My passion is educating and helping others to recover and thrive. For over 15 years, I have helped familiesrecover themselves and their kids with autism & GI disorders; so I thought I had a pretty good handle on research & treatments for autoimmune/environmental disorders, which included my education & certification, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner.
The Wahls Health Practitioner Certification program greatly expanded my knowledge: from the impressive and compelling collection of well-organized research to the attention towards individualizing healing, Dr. Wahls provided me the tools to continue to help even more people.
