Why Health Happened to me
I like to think that I ate better than most growing up. That's not saying much though, considering everyone eats out. My mom made awesome homemade meals and I never had to eat much cafeteria food since I always had a packed lunch. But I consumed a lot of grains, processed snacks, juices, sugar, etc. I seemed to be a "healthy" kid but then it caught up to me.
I was never overweight but as I grew older I developed many, many food allergies. I had acne in high school, which was covered up by a lot of makeup (that of course made it worse and began the vicious cycle), and I was always exhausted. I had sports induced asthma, depression, and my digestion wasn’t that great. I knew nothing about being healthy, just about exercise. Typically, I thought I could exercise off my bad habits.
When I met my husband we decided to go a healthier route together. Like many we started off vegetarian. As we did more and more research our diet evolved to what it is today...Primal/Paleo and never felt better! I pursured my passion for health and became a Certified Nutritional Health Coach through Dr. Sears Wellness Institute! I follow a paleo/primal diet and lifestyle (besides consuming raw dairy from time to time), and all of my symptoms have decreased or do not exist anymore! Going 100% organic and switching all my beauty products to natural ones made a tremendous impact as well. It is now my life and I couldn't be happier with the path I chose to health!
