Thankfully I pushed past the limits of conventional medicine and found something called Functional Medicine. It’s different from conventional approaches because it addresses the root causes of illnesses and heals you from the inside out. By addressing my root causes and healing my gut, the MS symptoms faded and then disappeared for good. Lab tests confirmed that antibodies to myelin are in the normal range, meaning my immune system has stopped the MS attack. MRI results show lesions have faded or disappeared, prompting my neurologist to say, “This couldn’t be a better story”.
But it’s not just my story that has a happy ending. After I healed, I decided to devote my life to helping those like me–people who want to get well but don’t know how. I spent years researching how we develop autoimmune disorders and how to reverse them. I became certified as a Functional Medicine health coach and noticed a pattern: when clients addressed their root causes, they healed.
Aristo Vojdani, PhD, a leading autoimmunologist, encouraged me to write a book. I’m honored that Functional Medicine pioneer, Mark Hyman, MD wrote the foreword. My book, Beat Autoimmune: The 6 Keys to Reverse Your Condition and Reclaim Your Health became an Amazon #1 bestseller in 8 categories including Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, Immunology and Chronic Pain.
As my private practice blossomed, I hit the limits of how many people I could serve. To help people heal as effectively and efficiently as possible, I decided to pour my knowledge, heart and soul into a self-paced program that enables people to learn, do, and heal at their own pace. It gives away the best of my book and the one-on-one Functional Medicine health transformations happening in my practice every day. The program can be accessed from anywhere with easy-to-consume videos and practical steps, at a fraction of the cost.
