Years of mysterious, undiagnosed symptoms left me looking at my diet and how food can effect our health. When I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2010 and Fibromyalgia in 2008, I really started to pay attention to my body.
Due to several chronic illnesses, I’ve had to make lifestyle and diet changes. My husband and I conducted research on diet and how it can help chronic pain sufferers to feel better. It was discovered that I do, in fact, suffer from a several food intolerances. Changing my diet over the years has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for my personal health.
- Gluten-free since 2012
- Dairy-free since June 2016
- Soy-free since October 2016
- Oat-free since November 2017
Though I suffer from chronic pain, it is important to keep my body in motion. Exercise is essential to my physical and mental wellness. I’ve been practicing yoga almost daily and walking up to 10 miles a week. Finding the right exercise program is important for keeping you on track.
Though I experience good days and bad days with chronic pain, I’m thankful that God has brought me through each and every challenge. I look forward to many more years of healthy living with Jon and our son.
