My Journey Through Chronic Illness
About ten years ago, I had to step away from my teaching career due to a severe illness that left me bedridden and in constant pain.
Despite numerous visits to specialists, no one could pinpoint the cause of my debilitating condition. The search for answers—and for anyone who could help—felt endless.
You’re Not Alone on This Journey
There were moments when I felt like I was dying, utterly alone, and terrified I wouldn’t be around to see our four kids grow up and live their lives. After two grueling years and countless symptoms, tests finally revealed the cause of my constant pain and deteriorating health. My story even caught the attention of local news, who interviewed me at our home. (Catch that newscast here.)
Life can be incredibly challenging, especially when you’re grappling with a chronic illness or facing a seemingly endless difficult situation. It’s even harder when you feel isolated, lacking the knowledge and support you need.
That’s where I come in.

Wellness Solutions For a Lifetime
The Wellness For Life Blog
I’m blessed to share my life with my amazing husband, David, and four wonderful children. In addition to being the CEO here, I also run an Etsy shop called Thrive Berry, and offer freelance writing services on Fiverr.
My health journey has been a long and challenging one, but thanks to relentless effort and God’s grace, I’ve seen significant improvements over the years. It wasn’t an overnight transformation, far from it.
At my lowest, confined to bed and barely able to move, I made a pivotal decision: I was going to fight tooth and nail to reclaim my life. From that moment of taking ownership of my situation—because who else would?—things began to shift for the better.
How To Kickstart Your Journey To Wellness
So how did I turn things around?
I left no stone unturned in my quest for better health. Here’s what I did:
- Revamped My Diet: Focused on nutritious, whole foods
- Tried Intermittent Fasting: Gave my body time to heal and detox
- Detoxed: Cleansed my system of toxins
- Explored Acupuncture: For pain relief and balance
- Set Healthy Boundaries: Learned to say no for my own well-being
- Practiced Deep Breathing: For stress relief and mental clarity
- Improved Self-Talk: Became my own cheerleader
- Visited a Biological Dentist: Replaced metal fillings for better oral health
- Underwent Physical Therapy: To regain strength and mobility
- Tried Natural Healing Protocols: Sought alternative remedies
- Opened Up Emotionally: Stopped bottling up my feelings
- Strengthened My Body: Through gentle yoga practices
- Learned Self-Compassion: Gave myself the grace to heal
- Supplemented Nutritionally: Took essential vitamins and minerals
- Administered B-12 Injections: For energy and cognitive function
…and the list goes on. Because let’s face it, we’re all works in progress, and I’m no exception. Crafting this new normal has not only given me hope but also reshaped my perspective and reignited my sense of purpose. And now, my mission is to help you become the person you aspire to be.
The True Worth of a Healthy Life
Then something remarkable happened.
People grappling with similar health challenges began reaching out to me—calling, texting, emailing. They were in search of answers and hope, especially when traditional medical routes had failed them.
This fueled my desire to make a broader impact. So, I took it a step further and became a Certified Holistic Wellness Coach and Certified Life Coach. Why? To empower even more people to reclaim their health and well-being. I absolutely love what I do, and there’s nothing more rewarding than helping people like you transform their lives.
