When I was 19 I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). My family was devastated. For over two decades specialists told me that all I could do was “take medication” and “prepare for life in a wheelchair.”
Fortunately, my dad sparked my can-do attitude early on and I began to experiment with natural healing modalities. I never gave up. Instead, I educated myself and continued to seek solutions until I found my root causes, healed my gut and finally reversed the MS for good in 2010.
I got certified as a Functional Medicine Health Coach; wrote a bestselling book called Beat Autoimmune with a foreword by Mark Hyman, MD; and have helped thousands recover their health and vitality.
Now I coach people back to health with step-by-step guidance in an online program and caring community called Beat Autoimmune Academy. Together we follow my proven framework called F.I.G.H.T.S.™ for Food, Infections, Gut health, Hormone balance, Toxins, and Stress. When you address each category, you lower your toxic burden, increase your resilience, and epigenetically switch off the expression of disease in your body.
