I am a railroader’s daughter. As a child, we lived off the grid in railway stations across Northern Canada; no running water or electricity. We were hunters and gatherers. We fished, hunted, picked wild berries and plants, and raised chickens and grew a garden. As I grew up we moved into more civilization and eventually lived in the town of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
My first Nutritional working experience was at a local hospital working in the kitchen. I became a relief dietary supervisor managing delivery of special diets for the patients. I learned some fundamental allopathic nutritional guidance here, but it would prove to fail me as I progressed into my own difficult food issues later. I worked every summer as a dietary food supervisor in hospitals to pay for my university education, so I was constantly surrounded by illnesses trying to be addressed with food controls. I recognized that necessary lifestyle changes were nearly impossible for people and they moved to rely on band-aid solutions to the diseases resulting from poor nutritional choices.
After high school, I moved to Montreal, Quebec where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from McGill University.
In 2015 I wanted to return to “hands-on healing” after many years retirement from PT. I became a medical massage therapist in 2016.
In the 1980’s I started to develop difficult digestive issues with no solutions offered by Allopathic doctors. For years I struggled to find relief from gut pain and sleeplessness caused by numerous foods. I eventually eliminated from my diet all foods that caused me gut discomfort. In 2012 I started my journey of using the naturopathic and alternative medical community for my medical needs. I got off all the allopathic medications (which were causing side effects), and I discovered I was nutritionally deficient, suffering from chronic fatigue, arthritic pain, cognitive decline, losing my hair and nails, and having difficulty emotionally.
In 2012 I discovered the holistic nutritional guidance that I feel saved my life. I had to make Nutritional Life Style Changes that would be permanent and rewarding! Now 6 years later I am still on a journey to improve my nutritional health more and more. Happily, I can share with you that I am sleeping soundly all night, have a bright acute focus all day long, my labs continue to reflect a healing gut, no stomach pain, no headaches, lots of energy, steady weight, low body fat, good exercise tolerance and emotionally healthy.
I am overall healthier and happier now at age 65 than I was at 35 and getting better every year.
