I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis in 2015 after waking up one morning with intense pain in my lower back. I was bedridden for a year, under very strong painkillers, until I was given immunosuppressant called TNF blockers. These allowed me to regain a little mobility and have manageable pain, but I was still very sick and couldn’t walk much. Keeping in mind, these are very powerful drugs with serious potential side effects.
"So I decided to take my health into my own hands."
I drowned myself in any information I could find on how to overcome autoimmune diseases, discovering the works of Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Osborne… I implemented the Auto Immune Protocol diet, took specific supplements after evaluation through functional testing, and followed strict health guidelines (red light therapy, detoxing, saunas, oil pulling, herbs…) It took some time, but 18 months later I was finally free of 100% of my symptoms and pain. Today, I have been completely off any kind of pain medication and TNF blockers for over 2 years (keeping in mind this was meant to be a lifetime treatment).
"Now I know I will never go back
because I have the key to my health."
I have never felt healthier in my life and I have the drive to live my best life again rather than feeling so down and defeated. This is the reason why I have decided to use my knowledge I have gained through my personal experience and through my studies in Nutritional Therapy (at the NTA) to help others. Furthermore, I have a certification in Mycotherapy delivered by Hifas da Terra, and a certification in "Mastering the Art and Science of Gastrointestinal Healing" by Restorative Wellness Solutions allowing me to run functional gut and food sensitivity tests.
"I have done the studying and research for you."
My education is science-based, focusing on bio-individuality, nutrient composition, the science of food, physiology, anatomy, and biochemistry.
My goal is to empower everyone to feel like their best self, help them go through any health challenges they are facing, and guiding them to making the right food choices for a healthy life.
