I've spent decades of my life as a professional musician riding on tour buses, flying in airplanes through multiple time zones, eating suspect food, sleeping (or not) in hotels, and basically burning the candle at both ends and not doing anything to counteract the stress I was putting myself through. I got away with it for quite a few years, but eventually it started catching up with me. The results?
Weight - up Blood pressure - up Blood sugar - up Digestion - @(*#%$ Energy - down!
The conventional wisdom was to exercise more, eat less, and take a couple prescriptions. Prescription meds and their associated side effects certainly didn't appeal to me. Also, I already felt like I was starving all the time and I was exercising so much that my body was not fully recovering...and I was plagued with injuries. There had to be another way.
I found the first piece of the puzzle in the ancestral health community...eating real unprocessed food! That alone was a giant leap forward in my health. But I soon found that not everyone is exactly the same and that a few tweaks around the edges specific to my individual biology could resolve lots of chronic health issues. I wanted to dig deeper! I spent endless hours, days, and months...and that turned into years, researching everything I could find about a more natural way to optimize my health, and reach my goals.
That's when I found FDN! With functional lab testing and some other good detective work, I was able to discover healing opportunities and take action in a more holistic fashion. This has become a passion! I love sharing and teaching what I've learned with anyone who feels that there is a better way, and who is committed and motivated to living a healthier and happier life!
The natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well
