This passion for being healthy and living a toxin-free life came when in 2013 I was diagnosed with a variety of auto-immune symptoms for which there was no cure from conventional medicine - I was told to plan my life and to get comfortable with the fact that I would end in a wheelchair in the following 3-5 years .... This sounded like a death sentence, but it made me determined to find an alternative! I ended up following the advice of functional medical doctors to a point where I spent most of my time researching natural medicine ... my life changed, my symptoms started to go away, I lost weight, I had energy again - I was enjoying life - and living it!
I am happy to say that I am now studying a Bachelors of Health Science in Naturopathic Medicine - with a passion to help other people finding their way to a better and healthier living.
I hope that this will inspire you to make a lifestyle change and embrace life! Get out of the sick-care mentality and into a health-care regime!
