Autoimmune Conditions, Ever Heard of Them?
My intention is to shift the underlying reliance on for-profit corporations to tell us about our health. To step back into alignment and sovereignty within our bodies. I have been passionate about this topic since 2015 when I had to take a fast and hard look at changing my habits both inside my physical body and outside within my reality. One moment I thought I was healthy and the next I was having to rethink my entire landscape due to an autoimmune condition. If you have an autoimmune condition you know this narrative: we don't know why you have this there are no answers. Subconsciously telling you there is no hope for you and simultaneously providing you drugs you are supposed to take for life. I am not a doctor but I am here to tell you there are many options and that YOU ARE THE MEDICINE!
We spend life chasing things and having chased a thing or two myself, I can confidently tell you that the chase will never end. Every day the world gets more chaotic, there are always more shiny new things to worry about or strive for and the truth is WE CONTROL NOTHING; EXCEPT our inner experience. We must distill the chaos of the outside and inside worlds to uncover the inner jewel, our unique purpose. You have to flip the script and make examining your inner landscape a priority. To LOVE your life, the first step is own a very important truth: you are responsible for your reality.
Everything I offer is meant to support a shift of being in the direction of finding what brings joy to your own unique personal experience. We peel back layers to discover our predispositions. This you may have referred to as shadow work and it begins with a willingness to look at the true nature of something. We explore where these truths came from and simultaneously work to accept all aspects of truth.

As we start to open our minds and also think about where the things we consume come from and recognize the impact they have on our bodies, we begin to create new practices, to organically shift our entire being to a place where abundance and inner peace are the norm. This is what they refer to as "doing the work".
I am passionate about being an open book regarding my journey with autoimmune conditions. I am no scientist, I can only share my experiences and my observations. From this place my intuition tells me that most, if not all autoimmune conditions seem to be related to some type of repressed emotions leading to a person not living in alignment with their truth. A very simplistic statement regarding a very complicated topic, but its to bring home the point, we can make deep impactful change by changing our thinking!
