Can We Actually Heal?


The words healing, remission and cure get tossed around all the time. But what are we actually doing to our bodies when we are utilizing anti-inflammatory methods to help our bodies? Is there such thing as a cure? Are we putting our illnesses into remission? What are we actually doing? This seems to be one […]

Eating for Multiple Sclerosis


Eating for Multiple Sclerosis When we think about treating MS, food isn’t usually the first thing to pop into many people’s minds. Medication usually comes first, then maybe exercise, then possibly stress reduction techniques. But what if I told you that what is on the end of your fork will have a drastic impact on […]

No one is immune to this holiday stress, but individuals with MS […]

Relapses, Exacerbation’s and Flares


I was sitting on the couch watching TV with my then boyfriend, now husband, on a Thursday evening. I absentmindedly scratched my right leg and thought to myself “that feels a little funny”, but I went on with my evening and didn’t think anything else of it. At least until Saturday morning. When I woke […]

Trigeminal Neuralgia


This may be a first. As I sit here writing this post, I am acutely aware of the pain that I am describing and writing about. A pain that is starting in the corner of my jaw, right below my ear, and slowly spreading in all directions, giving me a bit of a headache as […]

“It got hot, real quick” Heat and MS.


It was a beautiful day by anyone’s standards, except a runner. 72, mostly sunny, perfect early summer day in June. But to me, it felt 90 degrees and scorching. It was 2013 and I was running the B.A.A 10K. I was in the middle of my running “career” and onto my 2nd or 3rd 10k. […]

Leaky Gut, the Ins and Outs.


“Leaky Gut”. Just that term alone gives me a chill. It makes me think that my insides are going to start oozing out everywhere or that my intestines have sprung a leak. But thankfully, that isn’t what is happening. But what exactly is happening? What is ‘Leaky Gut’? Leaky gut, also known as intestinal permeability […]

This is my challenge to you over the next week.

Take some time and think about this past year.

All you’re proud of, all you’ve accomplished. And if you have some things that don’t bring you joy, be proud of yourself for making it through in one piece and still being here.

Reflection is a great way to cultivate motivation to keep going..

You’re doing amazing.
You’ve done amazing.
Let’s keep going.
🧡❤️🧡

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Regardless of what you see others doing,
you’re right where you should be.

This took me completely by surprise, cause I usually roast myself after a simple mistake 🙈

But, I just didn’t? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Working on self improvement is weird.
Like I’m not even consciously working on how I talk to myself at the moment. 

Have I in the past? Sure. And it’s something I try to stay conscious of, but def have my moments where I fall into old patterns.

But this moment gave me hope.

What moments in your journey have given you hope lately?

👉🏼Feeling stuck with your MS symptoms?
👉🏼Feeling like your body betrayed you and is working against you?
👉🏼Are you worried you’re stuck like this and will never get better?

I get it. At one point I did too.

Years ago I was experiencing “Aggressive MS” and I thought I’d never function the same.

I thought my days of moving how I wanted, or doing anything on a whim were over.

I couldn’t walk well, couldn’t feel my body correctly and I was SCARED.

But now?
I’m confident in the ways I’m helping myself.
I no longer have aggressive MS.
I can move how I want, when I want.

Because of the changes I’ve made over the years.

No, it’s not easy, but that’s where I come in!!

I’ve dedicated my life to helping those with MS realize that feeling better is possible and helping them get there.

My 2 courses and my membership are on sale this weekend for Black Friday,

want to start your own success story??

Comment SUCCESS below and I’ll send you the link!!

The first step to being successful with managing stress (& being successful with anything really) is:

Awareness of where you currently are.

You can’t change or manage what you’re not aware of.

You can only know yourself as deep as you’re awareness of yourself goes.

Try this:
Right now as you read this, pause for a sec.
Take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Where were my thoughts?
Where is my breathing?
What am I saying to myself?

Get really honest here too (warning- it might be uncomfy)

Progress is absolutely not linear.

But, it’s still progress nonetheless.

I see you if you’re in a “dip” or feel like you’re going “backwards”

You’re really not, you’re right where you should be.

Keep going!!

Lol, all this got me was an MS diagnosis. 

This was me basically my whole life up until a few years ago.

My clients have all talked about situations like this too.

It’s no wonder why a lot of us have an autoimmune disease now. 

Please, speak your truth. Your body will thank you.

I’ve been actively working on my nervous system for the past year or two.

That hasn’t meant that all my anxiety or depression magically vanished.

It just means that when I do find myself feeling like an anxious mess or a depressed puddle, I know how to attend to and care for myself.

Not in the goal of “fixing” per se, more honoring and accepting.

This is one of the ways I help my clients improve their MS symptoms, but attending to their nervous systems and improving their stress response and resilience.

I have so many ways to work with me.. from 1:1 support to my free community.. comment below “interested” and we’ll chat about what would be right for you!
