I help women who have also been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis make specific and personalized diet, lifestyle & subconscious changes so that they can begin to heal their body, reduce disease symptoms, and return to a life they love.

hey there,

It’s been some time. Quickie updates are in order!

First off, no relapse. Lesions are even improving some (guess the Tysabri works). At first you would think, yay! But when thinking deeper, the thought pops up, but why do I still feel this way…? Am I going to be stuck like this..forever? The answer I recently got from the doc was, ‘Hopefully not. Hopefully someday your symptoms can improve. But it seems as though this may be impact felt from residual damage’.


Not what I wanted to hear. I don’t want to be stuck with odd numbness/sensitivity crap forever. That shit’s lame. But oh-well, such is life.

Other updates… Le Boyfriend is no more. He’s now Le Fiance! Woot Woot. That happened on our first day of vacation on St. Lucia, at dinner. Very romantic 🙂 Now we are in the midst of wedding planning, which is just as stressful as everyone says! (Surprise to me) But that is moving along as well.

I began crossfit with my littlest sister in the middle of January too. That is still going pretty well. We aren’t able to make it as much as we would like yet, but we will add more days soon. The Open was starting just as we were, so their schedule was very different, but it will be back to normal now. So hopefully Monday and Friday with her, then whenever I can make it on my own. I’ll keep updated with that I hope!

I’m doing a nutrient boot camp this month too, so many new foods/recipes to be trying!!

Glad to be back.

Missed ya’ll!

  1. I’m sorry the news wasn’t exactly what you wanted to hear– but improvement in lesions is a huge plus! And you are a total rock star! I can’t imagine ever being able to do crossfit w/ MS. I keep hoping things will improve so that I can get to that point, but I start to doubt that. So happy for you that you’re able to get out & do so much.
    What does the nutrient boot camp involve? Sounds interesting. 🙂

      Thanks! I’m realizing I push through things that maybe I shouldn’t. But I’m just trying to stay as active as possible, it’s hard to feel inactive.
      The nutrient boot camp was started by another blogger I follow, Dig (Different Is Good), and it’s about incorporating more nutrients into your day, either with food, tea or spices. I just found all he recipes, so I’ll be posting my adventures over the month!

    Good for you that’s awesome! It’s so hard to stay active with MS, I have it as well and all I want to do is sleep! I also have narcolepsy. The nice weather helps so I stay very busy with my garden!
