For many years, I searched for answers as to why my health had disappeared in a matter of moments. My first diagnosis was in 2012 when I was in the ICU on my death bed due to a failed pancreas from a viral infection. At the age of 21 I was diagnosed with a life altering disease, Type One Diabetes. From then on, organ after organ began to go into acute failures and I became bed ridden. I had visited over 20 specialists in California to find what was killing me, and not one of them had the answer. Doctor after doctor shrugged their shoulders telling me it was anxiety and that I needed to take medication to fix the problem. Well this was not the case. After years of praying to God for direction, I began to search elsewhere to find my healing. I found an alternative doctor who immediately ran tests on me and diagnosed me with Lyme Disease. This diagnosis was a game changer. I started Lyme treatment immediately in 2014 and from the moment I began that first herx, my entire life fell apart. My former best friends had decided to move forward and not talk to me anymore, my boyfriend of four years was checking out of the relationship, my grandmother who helped raise me with my mother tragically passed away, and I became bed ridden sick from treatment that I had to stop school and go from working full time to part time. My life was completely flipped upside down. I felt as though I was drowning in a black hole, never to find the light again. I became depressed and alone. I gained the patient victim mentality, where nothing was my fault and I just had bad luck. This negative mind set and heart set landed me in a place called, rock bottom.

It wasn’t until I woke up one day realizing my life was completely shattered, my relationships were completely shattered and my spiritual identity was lost, that I had to make a change. I broke down and surrendered every problem, discouragement, broken piece of my heart before God in hopes that he would hear my cry and rescue me from the depths of suffering. At that moment, I felt like God touched my heart and filled me with a greater sense of confidence in who he is and his goodness. From that moment on, as I pursued God more and more, I began to heal. My life began to transform, piece by piece. Each area was beginning to become redeemed and restored through his grace and love. I’ve spent the past 3 years dedicated to transforming my life inside and out, and it has been the most rewarding journey and gift that I have ever received.

Through this process of transformation, I was led to the right doctors who knew which tests to run to find the answers to my puzzle of a body. With each diagnosis, it was a sigh of relief, another piece to the puzzle put into place. I was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases that had began after I got bit by the tick. These diseases are life-long and it has been difficult learning to manage them all, but I have been able to come to the conclusion through this process that these are only diagnoses; these are not my identity. These diseases do not destroy who I am as an individual. I may have been very sick the past 8 years, but God is healing me every day. From being bed ridden to almost in remission is a miracle. Both God and I have worked insanely hard on turning my life from toxicity to healthy. Healing one’s mind, body and spirit is vital to one’s happiness and soul satisfaction. God has set me free from the chains that once held me captive, and is building me a stronger, more inspirational life than it was before. I created this website in hopes that I could share with you all everything that I have learned throughout this healing process.

One important lesson I have learned is that just because we as humans experience some type of suffering, it does not mean our life ends, it does not mean our dreams are shattered, and it does not mean we will not be used for a more impactful life.

“Not only so, but we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”-Romans 5:3-5

Because of this truth, the passion for the pursuit of a deeper relationship with God has transformed my mind, body, spirit and life.

Now that I am stronger mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, God has opened doors for me to pursue my dreams of becoming a doctor.

I am also certified as an integrative health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, New York.

With each of these accomplishments being fulfilled, I am overjoyed to know that, what once was impossible and out of reach, is now within reach and completely possible because of God.

Each portion of suffering I experienced the past 8 years, has been completely redeemed and restored by God.

My relationships are thriving with my friends, family and myself. I overcame depression and now feel constant joy and delight. And I have become an instrument of God’s beautiful love to show the world that with a little faith, hope and trust, one can experience a life of healing and freedom from suffering.

There is hope in hopelessness, light in darkness, and faith in suffering. Know this, that we are never alone, that there is a God who loves us and wants to heal us, that it is never too late to transform your life, and that healing is possible, even when it feels impossible.

So, I invite you to come join me in transforming our hearts, minds, and bodies to be wholesome and bloomed!
