It manifested more as I grew up. If I wasn’t chugging a Coke and working around the clock, I wasn’t sure what to do with myself. The real kicker came when I ended up in the emergency room with crippling stomach pain. A colonoscopy later revealed I had a severe case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. (I got lucky.)
Instead of finding an alternative path to better health, I went on a Class C drug for 6 years. The drugs didn’t really work, but they did really interfere with me getting pregnant for the first time. It wasn’t until I tapped into ME that things started coming together.
Yes, ME. By listening to what MY body needed to thrive (not just survive), I was able to kick caffeine and fried foods to the curb, dump my IBS drug for good, and find the right nutritional supplements for my body.
The revealing results? I got pregnant!
