If you’re reading this right now, then you probably know what it feels like to be exhausted and foggy. I know I did! I lived this way for decades before my body had a complete breakdown which led to 10 years of intense suffering. I never want you to get to that point.
I went to dozens of doctors over the years who told me that my blood work was normal, and I was fine. I was NOT fine. I was VERY far from fine. They would send me on my way with a script for an antidepressant in hand. It didn’t take me long to realize the drugs weren’t helping. They only made matters worse.
I managed the best I could, but I even had to drop out of college after my junior year because of debilitating fatigue. I managed to go back and graduate but things never got better. I could go to work, but I had no energy to do ANYTHING else.
I learned that working gave me shot of energy, so I became a workaholic as a way of surviving. I excelled at what I did and existed on the shot of cortisol and adrenaline I got from working.
The problem is that I totally fried my nervous system and burned myself out. This suppressed my immune system and set me up for Lyme disease and mold illness to take hold.
By the time I hit 40 my body had had enough. After an extremely stressful time in my life, my body just had a complete breakdown. I couldn’t get out of bed. I couldn’t think, read, or communicate. I didn’t know what was happening, but it felt like my life was over.
In one way, it was a relief, because my life had been a struggle every single day up until that point, but in another way, I realized that all of my hopes and dreams for my future were gone.
NO ONE CAN HELP ME…
I vividly remember lying in my bed staring at the ceiling and feeling a cold chill run down my spine. I had just come to the realization that no one could help me. No doctor. Not my family. No friends. Heck, I couldn’t even help myself.
You see, I had been bedbound for about three years at this point. I’d been to dozens of doctors both conventional and functional with very little to show for it.
Up until that point, I thought that I just needed to find the right doctor or the right therapy or the right supplements, and then I would start to get better.
It was at that exact moment that I realized that the doctors really didn’t know any more about what was going on than I did.
I sat with this realization for a few days contemplating my future. Even contemplating how I could exit this world. I didn’t want to live like this for the rest of my life. Life meant chronic pain, debilitating fatigue, humiliation, anger, grief, trauma, immense loss.
I finally cried out to God for either the help to get better or the mercy to end it all. I felt an ever so tiny desire to live. An itty-bitty ounce of hope. And I hung onto that with all of my might.
This was my turning point. This was when I realized that I was going to have to take my health into my own hands. That I had to figure it out on my own.
From that day on, I took 100% responsibility for my health. I prayed for Divine guidance to find the right resources and doctors.
It took 10 years, but I did find answers, and I did get better!
If I can get better, anybody can get better.
Now, I help exhausted women just like you to get your edge back and start loving life again. I never want you to experience the pain and suffering that I did.
If I had known then what I know now, I could’ve saved myself decades of suffering and would’ve been able to be the parent, friend and business owner that I so desperately desired to be. You can learn more about me HERE!
How was V+C born?
Whole Body Balance, LLC, which is my parent company, and Vital + Clear were birthed out of my own story of intense suffering. Many years ago, I came down with a “mystery illness“ that left me bed bound for 5 years. No doctors could help me, and I realized that I was going to have to figure it out myself.
My family and I spent well over $150K out of pocket looking for answers. It took me over a decade to figure it out, so after I got better, I decided to go back to school and get certified in functional health. Now, my mission is to help women just like you get their lives back with a fraction of the cost and the time that it took me.
There Is Nothing Normal About Feeling Like Crap
More than likely, you’ve been to several doctors who ran blood work, and more than likely, they told you that you were fine… that being exhausted is just a normal part of aging or being busy or whatever they say these days.
But, I’m here to tell you that being exhausted ALL of the time no matter how much sleep you’re getting is NOT normal. There is NOTHING normal about it.
Chronic fatigue and brain fog are a thief and can steal the best years of your life if you don’t know how to address them. They can steal precious time away from your family. They can force you to opt out of social and family events.
They can steal your creativity and your potential to advance in your job. They may even steal your ability to work.
They can steal your dignity and peace of mind, because you know that you’re not able to live up to your potential.
I know, because I lived it for 10 years.
There are many, many causes of chronic fatigue and brain fog. I help you get your life back by finding and fixing these causes, so that you can live the life that you were born to live.
What is possible…?
What if I told you that you already possess the most powerful healing tool available? It’s true!! You don’t need a doctor or a medication to heal you! You were given a miraculous, self-healing body that has an innate intelligence that knows exactly how to heal.
The problem is that our bodies are malnourished and are full of toxins blocking our healing. When you are able to identify and remove ALL of the toxins and give your body what it needs, then magic happens and your body goes back into perfect balance and you start loving life again.
If it sounds simple, that’s because it is. However, it can take time to uncover all of the blocking factors, so it’s important to never stop asking why. Why am I fatigued all of the time? Why am I not sleeping? Why is my brain so foggy?
That’s the problem with conventional medicine. They never get to the WHY. They only give you band-aids for the WHAT.
What is the solution?
Your body holds the answers, and it’s my job to teach you how to find them. Every symptom you have is a messenger sent from your body to let you know that something needs attention.
However, these symptoms can be FAR removed from the source of the issue. For example, 10 people could all be dealing with fatigue and brain fog for 10 completely different reasons. So, you can’t address them all in the same way.
This is why I chose a functional health certification program that would teach me how to interpret functional labs. This is an invaluable tool when it comes to creating individualized protocols.
Your fingerprints aren’t the only thing that’s unique about you. Your biochemistry, gut flora, genetic makeup, emotional triggers, stored traumas are all unique to you. Functional testing along with a detailed history and questionnaires give me a good overview of what to address in what order.
Cookie-cutter health plans rarely deliver permanent results. I won’t be happy until you are at optimal health for the long haul. I can teach you how to get there, but it’s up to you to stay there. You can check out my Total Body Reset Program HERE!
