Hi! I'm April and This is My Story
Like many of you, health issues have affected me as well as the people I love. Cancer, autoimmune disease, metabolic disorders, allergies, food intolerances … we live in a world where chronic disease is the norm. I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia in my 20’s. I did not get much help from conventional medicine doctors and had to do a lot of research about nutrition and lifestyle to manage my condition. I realized the importance and the impact that nutrition can have.
I have lost people I love to cancer … a sister when she was only 30 and then my cousin / best friend almost 12 years later. I knew that the right nutrition could positively impact people with cancer but it seemed like conventional oncology doctors had learned nothing about nutrition and lifestyle in that 12 years. This was frustrating and prompted me to pursue a formal education in Nutrition Science.
I know so many people with autoimmune issues. I also have an autoimmune condition. When I began experiencing serious health issues, I I turned to conventional medicine but got no answers or resolution. I got my health back by applying specific nutrition practices and other lifestyle techniques. Now days, my holistic lifestyle includes many components.
But optimal health is truly an ongoing journey … One common thread with all of us touched by chronic disease is how overwhelming it is to feel that something as basic and important as our health is out of our control. So now my passion and purpose is to use my education and experience to help you take control of your health!
