I decided to create a website that would give me an outlet to share all of my knowledge, tips and treatments that I have found helpful while battling my illnesses. There are so many people out there who suffer like I do and can not afford holistic or natural treatments. I was fortunate to be able to afford a naturopath doctor when I was working. It was then that I was told I would have died within a week had I not gotten proper medical care. That moment, Dr. Song saved my life. When I lost my ability to continue to work I lost my ability to afford my treatments. I had to learn how to live with the twenty two illnesses that plague my body. It was horrendous but I prevailed and here we are!
This website has been a dream for me. I wanted to be able to show people that you can help yourself. When I started to help myself doctors wanted to help me. For the first time ever, I am on medications to help regulate my body and control some of my symptoms and agony I experience on a daily basis. My mental health is the best it has been and my body, tired and slow, is in less pain with proper medications. I do not leave the house unless it is a quick errand or a doctors appointment. I stay home, rest my legs, swim in pool, practice yoga and Pilates on a daily basis and continue to survive.
It is not easy to be disabled at my age. I had put off having a family or getting married because I wanted my career. My status in the world. My Job Title. I successfully created and ran five businesses. I had a great life but I was doomed from the start. My body has done things Doctors can not explain. Being diagnosed with MALS, SOD and awaiting a diagnosis of POTS has been a real challenge for me. I have only learned of my diagnosis in 2020 so my blog and website follow my journey to being diagnosed.
This website is intended for informational purposes. I am not a Doctor and have high respect for Doctors as they were able to survive medical school and I can only dream of one day being able to stay healthy to apply to medical school. I had hopes and dreams of being a Naturopath Doctor but I suffered a severe stroke in August and am making a good recovery but find that I am in bed more than I am out of bed. This website is my gift to you. I hope my voice can bring you healing and health.
