Do you believe in magic? To me, health is magic. When you’re healthy—really, truly healthy— you feel like you can do anything. You don’t need magic fairy dust to make all your dreams come true because you have the strength, energy, and clarity to do it all on your own. That’s real magic.
Once upon a time, I wasn’t experiencing optimal health. At the young age of 24, I had developed a chronic nerve pain condition that left me feeling exhausted and lethargic. There were days when I was in so much pain, I couldn’t even get out of bed. But, if there’s one thing all fairytale princesses have in common, it’s that they never give up, no matter how many times a villain or obstacle gets in their way.
The turning point in my story was working with a doctor and nutritionist who found the root causes of my mysterious illness. Together, they helped me take a holistic approach to treatment that relied mainly on dietary and lifestyle changes. Through the slow and steady introduction of a healthy diet, exercise, meditation, supplements and overall healthy habits, I was able to regain my health. Not only was I virtually pain-free within 6 months of starting treatment, I was even healthier than before. I had found my healthy, happily ever after. It was a dream come true!
Shortly after, I became an ACE certified group fitness instructor and began dedicating myself to helping others overcome health barriers and lead happier lives. I learned a lot from my journey and wanted to share my newfound knowledge on how to live an optimally healthy life with as many people as possible. Next thing I knew, Flaxseeds & Fairytales was born.
