My story via Human Health Report

I recently shared my story with the fine folks at Human Health Report and I wanted to repost the interview here. xoxo 

“Senior year of college, I was diagnosed with MS. That was in 2007. My legs started buckling underneath me. I had vertigo when I was sitting stationary. My legs and arms started tingling. I had optic neuritis, where my vision would go blurry at random points throughout the day. I went to 3 different neurologists because I didn’t believe I had MS. I didn’t understand why it would be affecting me. I was way too young. All 3 said I had MS, and the 3rd one said you have to get on this medication otherwise you’re looking at paralysis in 5-10 years. So I started the medication because I didn’t want to be paralyzed. The medication actually started making me worse. I started getting seizure-like symptoms, and déjà vu like 50 times a day, where I would feel like I had been here before. I could tell it was messing with my body and chemistry. So about 6 months into it, I said I can’t commit to a lifetime of this. There was no end date to the medication, and it only had a 40% success rate of slowing down the progression of it. That rate didn’t sit well with me. I found a chiropractor in NYC that tweaked my diet. He got me off a ton of the crap I was eating. He got me eating a ton of good fats. My symptoms started subsiding. Right around that same time, I found a woman named Doctor Terry Wahls, who was diagnosed with MS, paralyzed, and within a few months started walking again because she changed her diet to a paleo diet. I ended up changing my diet to a paleo diet, and all of my symptoms subsided. I’ve been doing that ever since. It’s been 6 years now, and I feel so good. Symptoms pop up when I don’t take care of my body and it’s just a sign that I know I’m not getting enough sleep, too stressed, or I’m eating the wrong foods. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m totally managing these symptoms and I feel great. I feel human again. I feel whole. I feel like I wasn’t truly living until now. I paid zero attention to my environment inside and outside of my body until this happened. Hippocrates said, "let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” And it’s so true because nutrition is the cornerstone of why I’m feeling the best I’ve ever felt.“
