CANCER-FREE BUT STILL NOT IN THE CLEAR
Just four years later, I was cancer-free but again, thought I was bullet-proof and again burning the candle at both ends. I came down with a case of “mono” (an illness caused by the Epstein Barr Virus) that sidelined me for 4 months! Slowly, my weight crept back up, and my thyroid became swollen. One night, my facialist, while massaging my neck, told me that my thyroid was really swollen. I had no idea what that meant but off I went to the doctor. After multiple tests, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune disorder that stems from the gut. It happens when the body attacks its own healthy thyroid tissue. Treatment required having surgery to remove half of my thyroid, which had disintegrated as a result of this increasingly common disease.
I was scared out of my mind! This sparked a renewed intensity towards training in clinical nutrition, biochemistry and transformational coaching as well as in quantum medicine and revival of using my own intuitive gifts in healing a person with a focus on making them whole again. Not just in body but in mind and spirit.
I’ve collected 3 advanced degrees (including a DSc. in clinical nutrition, so you can call me Dr. Detox Diva, if you so desire!) and multiple certifications. I am a Functional Medicine practitioner, a Clinical Nutritionist, a Biochemist, a Quantum “New” Medicine specialist, Reiki Master, Theta Healing Master, EMDR and Hypnotherapy practitioner, and much much more. I help women tackle healing on all levels.
I recovered fully. I am still not immune to life’s punches when it comes to my health. I moved to Qatar after living in London, met a man, got married, and settled down. While in the middle of writing my biochemistry doctoral thesis and one night after several bottles of wine later… “Surprise, we’re pregnant!” A few weeks later it was “Surprise! It’s triplets!”.
We settled down in Lebanon so I could run my business and three years later we lost one of our wee baby girls. Of course this meant I had to be even more vigilant with my health making sure I eat right, sleep properly and maintaining my spiritual practice. It was not easy to get through this. I can’t say I don’t still have my bad days. Even through my sadness and grief, I had to maintain my health to be a mommy for my other children, a wife to my husband and a healer for my clients.
I know you are tired and confused and think nobody understands where you are in life.
I understand. I see you and I am here to support you in your quest to not only reclaim your health but your joyful bliss and soul centered purpose!
