Instead of giving you a list of my education and experience as a Naturopath, I want to tell you who I am and how I got here. I was raised in an extremely dysfunctional family, where I survived every type of abuse you can think of. I was always sick as a child, the unstable environment I was growing up in manifested itself with a weakened immune system. I always felt guilty, ashamed, and never good enough.
This set me up for a lifelong battle to heal, figure out who I was, and find my strength and my voice. It has been both a roller coaster ride and a battle for every inch of healing I've gotten. It seems every time I gained a little healing, be it mental or physical I was knocked back down and had to begin again.
What do I mean by this? I grew up running to medical doctors every time I got sick, which was a lot, the doctors answer was always the same; antibiotics and steroids, which I now know was only causing the roller coaster to plummet to the bottom and start the long, hard climb back to the top. In my early thirties we moved from my childhood home and I began to get a glimpse of freedom and I wanted more. But life happened again…
I spent years fighting deep depression, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome/immune deficiency syndrome, and fibromyalgia. It was the worst time of my life, mostly spent crying, sitting in my room rocking in a rocking chair staring at the wall. Finally, by 2005 I was getting back on my feet and a degree of healing. Then life happened again…
We were just fourth-five minutes from home, when we were involved in a major auto/semi accident. I sustained disabling injuries and for the next ten years I lived in bed. I was back to severe depression and physical pain, like I could have never imagined. That ten years is a blur of physical therapists, doctors, surgeries, pills, injections, pain, and more depression. I came close to the point of giving up.
In 2014 I had to have another medically necessary surgery. It was supposed to be an out-patient procedure, but I was in so much pain I went into shock. They could not control my pain, with pills, IV's and pain pumps. I decided right there that I was done! Over the course of the next year I sought out Naturopathic practitioners, I weened myself off the pain pills and replaced them with natural therapies. I slowly got better and began to find myself again. I'm not saying I'm healed, I have to take care of myself, I employ specific natural healing techniques, and I feed my spirit with the Word daily.
I used my education as a Naturopath to get my life back after a life time of living on a roller coaster. I drew upon that stubborn Cajun inside of me to will myself to get better. I developed a formula for my own healing and I know I can help you do the same. I want to see people get free of the bondage and Illness that plagues them. I want to help them get free and stay free. Let me help you get off the roller coaster and walk the path to healing with you. I did it for myself and I can help you get there too.
My life verse: We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose (Romans 8:28 AMP)
