#autoimmunedisease

Honestly you guys are the absolute best 🙌 from likes and comments to joining in on my story and sending me messages to following me; you have all made this journey that little bit easier! ✨
I started this account purely as a way to get things out of my head and to write down how I was feeling, I never expected for so many of you to join me on my journey, to offer advice and support, to be there for me and to be so understanding or to get to know so many of you and join you on your journeys. But I’m so grateful that this has been the case. ✨
For the first time in my life I’ve felt truly listened to, valued and understood by this community. It’s made me laugh, it’s made me cry and it’s given me so much knowledge and advice. It’s the first place I come to if I’ve got a problem or need to express how I’m feeling or am having a bad day with my illnesses, because I know no matter what I’m going through, there will be someone here who gets it. ✨
Starting this account has been one of the best things I’ve done and I just want to thank you all for being a part of it.  I hope I’m able to offer at least some of you the same support, love and friendship that so many of you have offered to me. And if we haven’t spoken before then please feel free to drop me a message or comment, I’m always hear for any of you and would love to get to know you! Sending you all love and hugs 💕a minute agoDownload

the light is truest
when from a heart broke & healed
it beams
fueled by learnings
swathing those in darkest hue
with serene amends
revealing
there is choice in all things
and they too
may shine once more ☀️✨.

I haven’t posted in a while. I had a total thyroidectomy two weeks ago today. My sweet boy was worried when he saw me in recovery. ❤️ I’m still sore and a little swollen but feeling better everyday. Hashimoto’s is quite the journey.

a cookie is just a cookie 🍪 it’s not good, and it’s not bad. but if you want to describe it using some adjectives? here’s a few that don’t consist of those words:
—> scrumptious, gooey, crispy, heartwarming, satisfying, sweet, healing, comforting, soothing, energizing, delightful, etc.
—
next time you find yourself putting certain foods on a pedestal (i.e kale and bananas above cookies and pancakes), I urge you to consider all food as just FOOD. each kind serves a different purpose, and once you tune into your body’s needs — you’ll figure out how to honor those purposes. I won’t lie and say it’s easy — because it’s hard. but it’s SO worth the journey to food freedom.

NOWWWW.... for these incredible CBD choco chip cookies 🍪:

1/4 tsp sea salt

🛑📣 EPISODE 8 OUT NOW! LINK IN BIO OR FIND ME ON SPOTIFY, PODBEAN OR STITCHER!!! @hidradenitis.selina is a 24 year old who is fighting Hidradenitis Suppurativa and PCOS. This episode was special for me because I have also struggled in silence with HS for a long time. We discuss the pain around flares, being dismissed by doctors and things getting progressively worse. We joke about being in our twenties and that we are not perfect. Selina is bubbly and has a good sense of humor, she refers to the first doctor who performed surgery on her as “Dr. Quack” and then later we learn “Dr. Homeboy” saved the day. I highly recommend you check out her Instagram where she shares memes she makes herself about her dealing with flares, quacks, homeboys and everything in between dealing with chronic illness. SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT USE PURE TEA TREE OIL ON YOUR FACE! 😹7 minutes agoDownload

🧬💉Let’s talk Coeliac Disease.💉🧬
———————————————
I thought i would do a little post talking about CD. A lot of people get it mixed up with an allergy or intolerance.
But Coeliac is non of these.
I also wanted to show you some of the ‘behind the scenes’ of what happens when you have Coeliac.
———————————-
Now, if you’re interested of understanding Coeliac, i would recommend that you go onto @coeliacuk website and read up! (Only because I don’t want to bore you.)
But in a nutshell, Coeliac is an autoimmune disease, where my body attacks the proteins found in wheat, making me quite ill.
•••••••••
Cross contamination of food is also a thing. So thick twice before you share a chopping board. 🛑 ✋
•••••••
🧬If you have Coeliac you have a weakened immune system compared to the normal healthy person.
Meaning your GP will offer you the yearly flu jab for free. ••••••••
💉 If you’re Coeliac you’ll also be given a pneumococcal vaccine and a booster every 5 years. - The same vaccine given to children and people over 65, or those with illnesses or diseases which mean they have a weakened immune system.
•••••••
💉 You’ll have a set of blood tests every year for the rest of your life.
This is so they can check to see if your IGA anti-bodies. It’s also for your dietician to check your weight to make sure you’re getting all the nourishment you need.
•••••••
🦴 You may need a DEXA bone scan.
This is to check my bone density and to see if i have osteoporosis.
This is why i have to follow the NHS calcium chart.
A normal person needs 700mg of calcium a day, where as someone who is Coeliac needs 1000-1500mg.
••••••••
💕So if you’re being tested for Coeliac, or wondering if you have it, this gives you an insight of what happens once you’ve received your diagnosis!

That feeling when your flare starts to calm down 🙌🏻 This week has been a tough one. Had a wonderful day full of fun, friends and yummy food on Saturday and then woke up on Sunday with more pain than usual. By Sunday evening I could barely walk because the pain in my lower back was so sharp. 💥

Monday was even worse, with the pain spreading up my entire spine to the point where I couldn’t even lie still without severe pain. I also could not stand or walk more than a few feet. Thankfully after several days of heat, rest and pain meds the flare is starting to calm down. 💥

As someone who likes certainty and answers it’s been frustrating that these flares come and go without any noticeable cause. I’m starting to get a little better at just accepting that the reason doesn’t matter as much was calming down the flare, but man it’s difficult! To my spoonies, how do you predict flares? What’s your go-to flare self care?11 minutes agoDownload
I felt honored to get to represent Aria Integrative Medicine at the @mssociety #onthemove Luncheon this year!

If you arent familiar, the MS Society has done wonders to help provide information, access to care and support for those with #multiplesclerosis. This amazing organization works hard every day to make people's lives better.

We also got to hear from @jennylayfluffy, who is an AMAZING speaker and access champion for those with disabilities. The work that she and others are doing at Microsoft  to provide better access to those with disabilities is nothing short of astounding.

Its days like today that make me feel empowered and hopeful that we can make the world a better place for those with MS and other chronic debilitating conditions.

Amazing post by client Julie on the challenges of doing what you need to get where you want. Julie & I chat pretty often so we discuss all the points & challenges she mentions below (dating, social life, work). She’s made stellar progress & I’m so proud of how willing she is to change and follow directions to be her best.

🧨THIS POST HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SQUATS🧨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It has to do with nutrition/health... and how it sometimes really sucks, it’s frustrating and seems to be the biggest thing holding you back from achieving your results ... are you with me on that?!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why am I talking about this. Well. I recently made some big changes to my nutrition. I went from pretty much eating whatever I wanted (have you tried chocolate covered almonds... they fucken rock) to tracking my food AND doing an elimination diet (this means no eggs, dairy, gluten, nightshades, nuts.. basically everything)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why the heck would I do this??!! If you are new around here (hello👋🏻👋🏻) I have an autoimmune disease that affects my thyroid. A lot of foods that cause inflammation will cause this to flare up... in super unsexy ways (hives.. psoriasis.. so much phlegm...oh and zero energy😴)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s really challenging to have a life, when most social activities revolve around food or alcohol. Sometimes I don’t want to talk about my health on a first date or have to explain to a group of friends what’s going on (even tho they all are super supportive)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Making changes to your nutrition impacts sooo many aspects of your life. And sometimes you DON’T feel like putting that effort in. BUT THATS WHEN IT MATTERS THE MOST
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know it can feel really embarrassing to talk about why you are rating a certain way. Sometimes ppl close to you aren’t that supportive (like how many times has Karen said she was doing a detox or diet and you rolled your eyes?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You deserve to be healthy, and you deserve to have the confidence to show up for yourself and your goals everyday
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you relate? Let me know- DM me so we can chat. I can give you some tips that helped me (and not feel bad about my decisions

#koloskopie 
Vor ein paar Tagen sprach ich mit einem Freund über seine Darmspiegelung, es war ihm unangenehm und er hat sie verschoben. Aufgrund meiner #ced muss ich regelmäßig hin, mindestens einmal im Jahr. Schön ist was anderes, aber ich denke kaum noch drüber nach. Zur Gyn oder zum Zahnarzt gehe ich ja auch😇 Durch das Gespräch ist mir aber erst wieder aufgefallen, wie vielen Leuten es immernoch total unangenehm ist, nicht nur drüber zu reden, sondern auch zur Spiegelung zu gehen. Dabei bekommt man davon dann gar nix mit. Ehrlicherweise freue ich mich ja sogar schon ein bisschen aufs Propofol morgen🙈😂 Aber was ich eigentlich sagen will: geht bei Beschwerden oder erblichen Vorbelastungen oder einfach zur Vorsorge zur Spiegelung, denn egal ob eine #darmerkrankung oder #krebs, Früherkennung ist sooo wichtig und kann Krankheitsverläufe oder sogar das Leben retten💪❤ .

It’s been official for a while, but people keep asking my mom questions, so let me announce it for everyone to read.  I have tested positive for the Antiphospholipid antibodies twice. The disease is known as Antiphospholipd Syndrome, APS, Hughes Syndrome, aPL positive, APLS, and/or sticky blood depending on what continent you live on or how long ago the info was written.  The good news is my 2nd test to give me the official diagnosis had better results than the first, but I’m still positive. I have no clotting issues showing up which is a major blessing, but I did test positive on 2 out of 3 the first time tested and 1 out of 3 on the second batch of tests. 
So what does that mean? + APS is a rare autoimmune disease, in basic terms, that affects how your blood clots which could cause infertility/miscarriage, DVT, Stroke, etc.  There are a long list of other side effects as well since it involves your immune system going haywire.
+ We already have a specific plan for pregnancy since my OB is the one who found the positive aPL antibodies. + Diet Changes - currently Paleo based and looking at the Autoimmune Protocol & anti-inflammatory diet.
+ Researching- so much research y’all.  Since this is rare, I have to be understand & fill myself with knowledge because unfortunately most doctors are not.
+ I need to find a Rheumatologist who understands APS or is willing to learn.

So what can you do?
+Pray.  Prayers for less anxiety (I have become a blood clot hypochondriac), normal clotting & finding doctors who know about APS & pray for those trying to find meds to block the inflammatory response.  I hear there's a promising clinical trial in Utah.
+ Compassion - this is chronic & invisible so I may look/sound normal & feel awful.

If you have questions I'm glad to answer if I know the answer 😂18 minutes agoDownload
This is the conversation that we need to be having with our doctors . .
Is your doctor asking .
1️⃣How is your sleep , what time do you go to bed ?
2️⃣How much water do you drink in a day ?
3️⃣What do you eat in a day ?
4️⃣ How active are you ?
5️⃣How many bowel movements do you have in a day ?
.
These questions are powerful and gives you great insight into someone’s life.  I wish more conventional doctors would take the time out , instead of running more lab work , more pills , more X-rays , more referrals .
.
Do you agree with this ?

Today’s #WCW goes out to my #girlgang 🖤

You may see me sharing our dance parties in my stories but it’s much more than dancing around in front of the camera. 
These women are showing up every day, most of them at 5am before anyone else is awake, to take time for themselves! We may not be in the same city or state, but through social media, we are able to hold each other accountable. We post those videos to show each other that we can do anything and we are worth it! You can’t fill anyone else’s cup if you don’t fill yours first!
Most days I don’t want to get out of bed. But when I start getting those notifications of being tagged in a story, I know that my fit sisters are showing up for themselves and I need to do the same. 
I LOVE these women so much!!! I wish we were all together to have a pre workout dance party to 90s music every morning (in costumes of course) but seeing your beautiful faces and awesome dance moves on the daily definitely makes up for it! 
There’s always an open invitation to our dance parties! **Real pants not required 🥳

LOVE this from Dr. Josh Axe 👇🏻 - EVERY food on this list is used in my new book, “The Leaky Gut Meal Plan” except for one (not on purpose). Guess which one is NOT used in any of the 75 recipes?! 📖 ⠀
✨⠀
“When we look at the diseases that plague our society — arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease — we notice something similar.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The common denominator tied to all of the above diseases, and more, is inflammation. By combatting inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods, not only can the symptoms of these diseases be alleviated, but we could even see them disappear.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Dive into how these 15 foods help fight inflammation when you click the link in my bio! #draxe #inflammation #antiinflammatoryfoods"⠀

ULCERATIVE COLITIS. 💜 . . .

YoU LoOk NoRmAl To Me... 🙄’.
‘YoU DoN’t LoOk ILL’. .

Funny that, I don’t always feel it, luckily :). But when I do, it’s not always obvious. 
Post continued...✨. .

This condition will be with me for life, that I had no clue even existed before I got diagnosed. For me it’s just another reminder that life is full of change and helps me remember to be happy in the present moment and not take something as important as your health for granted.

My top tips:✨ .

Know your triggers or try to get to know them, whether its certain foods, getting enough sleep etc. (Alcohol and caffeine trigger me -even one 🙁)
Get as much rest as you can, have 'me' time that you need to recharge each week.
Take your tablets well. I'm one to have to set alarms to remind myself... Look after yourself first.

I wanted to reach out and show those who suffer similarly that we are not alone. Mental health is being talked about so much more which is amazing. Invisible illnesses need the same attention. 
Were not pulling a ‘sicky’, were are actually Ill.
Yes it has nasty side effects so no wonder it’s not spoken about. But. I feel like it’s our job to educate people and support each other.  Put yourself and your health first. You may not be able to do everything you want, exactly when you want to, but I’ve found the best things at the moment are listening to your body helps so much, not taking too much on and taking each day as it comes.

xo.

By literally writing it out! ⁣
⁣
I started exploring bullet journaling and brush calligraphy about halfway through the last year of my master’s degree.  I was in desperate need of a hobby and found that learning a new skill and practicing something besides viola was actually really fun! ⁣
⁣
I remember sitting at Lincoln Center staring at the The Juilliard School practicing my brush strokes in pretty, different colored pens, and the repetitive movements and shapes were so calming to me. It got me out of the building and into a different space and frame of mind to create something other than music. ⁣
⁣
Sadly, I’ve gotten out of the habit of bullet journaling, and consequently my brush lettering practice is non-existent! ⁣
⁣
However, I started my day off today with a lot of self-care and decided to keep the trend going through the morning by doing something that calms me and brings me joy. ⁣
⁣
I highly recommend starting each day by doing something that is fulfilling and inspiring to you, and if it helps you to #stopthestress at the same time, that’s even better! ⁣
⁣

ULCERATIVE COLITIS.💜 .

Who else never realised the middle of the week spells out ‘WTF’ 😂... .

Anyway... .

Previous post continued...✨. .

I couldn’t understand why I felt so drained and lethargic ALL the time. No one else fully understood (still don’t) just how drained and in pain you can be when in a ‘flare up’.
Even when not flaring, this disease has still made me take a step back and I’ve had to re-think my lifestyle. Getting run down easily is such a nuisance but I’m understanding how my body works more now, and listening when things get too much. 
Cancelling plans is okay, and if people make you feel bad for it they were never your friend in the first place.

With severe pain and blood too, I finally I had my colonoscopy (previous post was just before the procedure). .

The results and biopsies showed that the whole of my colon was severely inflamed, with ulcers and blood. No wonder I was in pain.
I was given a stupid amount of tablets (including steroids which worked wonders) and was almost back to feeling completely normal the week later.

My main tablet: Octasa (Initially Asacol) 800mg.
This tablet is the main thing keeping me in remission. It is anti inflammatory. Although it is an immune suppressant, it helps me feel and lead a more ‘normal’ life than I would with out it.
Steroid: Prednisolone 25mg (oh my gosh, If it was healthy to take this for the rest of my life I would. I’ve never felt so energised plus I actually gained a bit of muscle while taking this when I started to feel better).
Adcal 750mg. A tablet incase you get calcium ddgiciency taking the steroid.

Lots of people assume that the condition means I have diarrhoea all the time or in a flare up. Yes, this is a main symptom but just one of them. I feel flu like symptoms nausea, hot and cold a lot and bad fatigue.

I may have to take 6 Octasa tablets every day for the rest of my life, which helps with the inflammation. But- I’m lucky I had them when I did. Due to these tablets I’ve been so happy to have mainly stayed in ‘remission’ (reduced symptoms) for almost two years.

I pull this card A LOT. I knew I was going to pull it. I also pull it often when I ask about my love life, usually upright. 🙄

But, I like this card. I think we all have a little devil in us. We deal with temptation or impulsive behaviors, getting ourselves stuck in situations that we know are harming us. This card is about bringing awareness to that, and regaining the power we have in our lives. It’s easy to feel like a victim & trapped in shitty situations that we’ve constructed for ourselves. The devil reminds us to push through our issues, and that we have a choice in how we deal with our problems. Although this card is intimidating, it’s a stark reminder to stop betraying yourself and I find that valuable. RANT OVER. (Obvs this is outside of chronic illness/physical pain, them bitches ain’t a choice I’ll tell ya)an hour agoDownload

🥖🙅🏼‍♀️Grains and gluten are bad news for your gut. However, a lot of gluten-free bread is filled with processed junk and so many artificial ingredients that it’s really not much better for you than eating “regular” bread. If you can’t see yourself abstaining from sandwiches and tacos for good then give the following AIP swaps a try. Cassava flour tortillas are an excellent swap for corn and flour varieties. Meanwhile, lettuce wraps, cabbage leaves, and endive can all be used in place of bread or buns for your favorite burgers and wraps.
🌮Give @sietefoods tortillas a try! They're #grainfree #glutenfree and so yummy!an hour agoDownload

Feelings of anxiety? Can't seem to wind down or sit still? Struggling to lose weight?

When your sympathetic nervous system is in control, your stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol are high.

In the short term, this is great to run away or fight (fight and flight response)

But spending too much time in this state causes a reduction in your thyroid hormones.

The same thyroid hormones that are responsible for giving you energy and allowing easy weight loss.

We use tools such as HR and HRV to monitor and manage your stress levels, which leads to faster weight loss and more energy.

If you're lethargic, feeling like you run out of energy each day and are working hard for weight loss that is incredibly slow, then click @rmfgymwestferry check the bio and book a call so we can help.

Weight loss is much easier when you take a holistic approach that works WITH your body, instead of against it.

Don't forget to follow us for more holistic weight lose advice 👍

I was diagnosed with #psoriasis when I was 15 years old. Oh and not to mention the double whammy of #psoriaticarthritis too. The arthritis hit fast and hard and I quickly went from being on the swim team to barely being able to walk. That was hard enough, but I figured modern medicine would help sort out my pain. The total gut punch came when the girl who was already facing body image issues and thought of herself as the “fat chick” has to imagine a life covered in red patchy scales. I was devastated. .

Do you know about ACEs? Adverse Childhood Experiences? Google it and take the quiz for yourself. Basically it measures your history of trauma in your childhood. .
.
The ACE studies show that trauma in childhood is directly and scientifically correlated with increased risk of a whole host of physical health issues; autoimmune being one of them! For each point you get on the ACEs your risk of experiencing an autoimmune disease increases by 20%!!! 😱
.
.
I know now that my autoimmune and it’s outward symptoms are a freaking badge of honor. I have been through some stuff and these are my scars. Now I’m focusing on therapy and healing old wounds in hopes to have fewer flare ups. It’s time to heal. #thisispsoriasis .

Many people have been messaging me asking how I'm feeling... I wish I could say better, but unfortunately the symptoms and pain are all the same.
But don't you worry... I won't give up. 💜

✰ ONE YEAR ✰ can’t believe that Spoonie Sister Shop is already officially one year old today!!! One year ago today, I nervously opened up a little etsy shop & made my first insta post. While I dreamed it would encourage & support fellow chronic illness warriors, I NEVER could have imagined it would evolve the incredible way it has.💓

I learn more each and every day from each and every one of you. I love being connected to this little spoonie world, where it’s normal to see your doctors more than your friends & no one thinks twice when you say “oh sorry I can’t, I did a thing 2 days ago”😂
.
More than anything I love seeing how we have all as a community continued to open up the dialogue about living with chronic illnesses! There is still so much awareness to be spread...but DANG guys! We are doing a pretty amazing job so far!!!🥰

Thank you all for welcoming me so warmly, I’m so grateful to be here💓 For me personally (oh hi forgot to reintroduce myself haha I’m Michelle – rhymes with seashell 🐚☺️) this past year has involved an endoscopic celiac plexus block, common iliac vein stents, renal nutcracker syndrome diagnosis, left kidney autotransplant, official gastroparesis diagnosis, spontaneous intracranial hypotension diagnosis, 1 myelogram, 2 blood patches, too many doctors to count, and a wholeeee lot of spoonie shenanigans🥄🥄 So happy spoonieversary guys!!

Since some people with hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance or diabetes experience high sugar level in the morning, it’s very advisable to start the day with a good source of fiber and protein. This will help stabilize blood sugar levels and keep you satisfied and full until your next meal.
*
🌱Processed breakfast such as cereals, flavored oatmeal, fake protein shakes ( some contain added sugar, and even toxic chemicals), sweetened yogurts, and stored bought “juice” beverages can contain just as much added sugar as cake, ice cream, and other sweet treats.
*
🌱Since high sugar meals may worsen blood sugar levels, so what the heck do you eat?
*
I find it hard to eat breakfast but I do make a smoothie with dandelions, spinach, a good source of protein, Moringa, cinnamon and coconut yogurt. If you’re on the go and can’t miss breakfast, play around with a few things to make a satisfying breakfasts. Some examples:
🍳Eggs (can be scrambles, fried, etc.), sliced avocado, and a side of fresh berries.
🍶Oatmeal made with unsweetened almond milk topped with (almond butter optional), sliced apple, unsweetened coconut flakes, and cinnamon.
*
📲I’ll have more recipe to share during the Sweet Spot challenge.  Stay tuned for more tips on how to heal your body without going insane.an hour agoDownload
Where it all began. This photo is so significant to me now! On the surface its a funny, silly pic but it turns out it was actually pretty serious 😂. This was when I was first starting to really have bad trouble with my vision, which ultimately led to all of my tests and eventual diagnosis. Id been off balance for months and was experiencing a weakness in my left eye for a while, but a week or two prior to this picture I started getting horrendous double vision. It had gotten so bad this day that I spent pretty much all day with one eye closed as it was the only way I could actually see! My mam had had a glass of wine and decided to make me an “eye patch” haha. We all giggled at it so much but actually it brought me such relief that I wore it for hours 😅. #multiplesclerosis #ms #invisibleillness #mswarrior #msawareness #thisisms #msfighter #msstrong #chronicillness #mslife #autoimmunedisease #mssupport #msproblems #chronicdisease #mssociety #mswarriors #findacure #curems #wehavems #tecfidera #powerofpositivity #letscurems #invisiblemonster #msstrength #mustendms #youractionsbecomeyourhabits #solumedral #yourbeliefsbecomeyourthoughts #msunicornsan hour agoDownload
True story. Never assume that because someone ‘looks good’ or is smiling, or even laughing, that they aren’t well. Autoimmune diseases are real. The bitch of it is, we look fine on the outside, but going through hell on the inside. We just decide to go with it & smile. We don’t need sympathy, just simple understanding 💖 #rheumatoidarthritis #autoimmunedisease #disease #awareness #positivity #people #health #reality #life #beaware #think #love #help #blogger #blogan hour agoDownload
Happy World Ballet Day! .

Once a dancer, always a dancer. The further away I get from dancing seriously the more I'm sure it's become engrained in who I am. Although, I have to be careful of getting stuck in the frustration that I'm not as good as I once was, dancing still flows from me in moments of praise, excitement and even despair. .
.
This picture was taken yesterday in one of the most beautiful and serene places I've been. I was so giddy with excitement of the wonder of this place that I found myself leaping and twirling up the path. .

I'm so thankful for years of ballet/dance training that taught me with my favorite way of self-expression ♥️

Remember that pet blessing I mentioned in my last post? It took place on the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment; and it was during the blessing that the priest shared this quote of his – “Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
•
This resonated…

So often we have a vision, a goal, a plan that easily gets lost in the daily grind. I love this reminder to take it one step at a time; and I’ve begun my journey back to better health with this at heart.  I’m doing the work, the basic necessary work, to get on track so that one day the idea of ‘impossible’ is a distant memory & becomes my daily reality.

I was looking through my pictures earlier and realized today is the 6 month mark of being diagnosed. As I was looking through I couldn’t help but notice that more than half of my pictures this summer were taken from a hospital bed.....not exactly how I envisioned our first summer with Henry or one of the few left that Kolton isn’t too cool to hangout with us. I also remember how completely terrified I was in most of them; this song always hits a spot for me because it was the first one that came on, on my way home from my first hospitalization and I was scared to move any inch of my body in fear it would send me back into crisis....It helps me remember how far I’ve come since then. All of the pokes, medications, procedures, complication after complication seem like it was so long ago at this point but the feeling of that fear in the beginning is something that I don’t think I’ll ever forget. I’m finally becoming comfortable and getting to a spot with this disease that I didn’t think was ever possible when this all started. So, for anyone whose in the thick of it right now, just being diagnosed or still working on becoming comfortable in your new body, I promise it happens, it just takes some time ❤️

Hello, friends! Did see our live on Facebook or Instagram yesterday? We wanted to share with you some very exciting news! Over the past few months we have slowly been saying goodbye to Veggie Divas and HELLO to Press Health Coaching - that’s right - we are in a full rebrand! ⁠
⁠
We cherished our name, the beginning phases of our business, and embracing all of you as part of our tribe 💕, however we finally dialed in on what we are most passionate about in our business. The answer...skin conditions. Skin is the largest organ of the body and when something isn’t quite right on the inside the message is displayed on the outside..which can come in many different forms like eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, contact dermatitis, etc. We are dedicating our lives to helping people like you clear their skin naturally! ⁠
⁠
Natalie has had psoriasis her whole life and Kristin was diagnosed about a year ago. Through lots of hard work and research Kristin was able to heal her psoriasis naturally. Natalie’s journey has been different over the years as this began in her childhood. She was offered a myriad of products, steroids, creams, antibiotics, light therapy, and lastly for the past 5 years biologics. It’s not the fault of Western medicine, it’s what they are trained to do - give you a prescription and see if that “works”. Since going to Nutrition School, we know there are healthier alternatives that get to the root cause internally instead of putting a bandaid on the external flare ups. We both decided that this was a no brainer - the natural way! Natalie has been working on her healing journey for the past few months and Kristin is still following our healing protocols. ⁠
⁠
We will be sharing our healing journey with you on Facebook and Instagram. We hope to complete our rebrand in the next 30 days. Keep a look out for our announcement when our new website is live! In the meantime, you can find us here @presshealthcoaching or on our old website, www.veggiedivas.com. ⁠
