Hello, Heather Gray here, Speaker, and Functional Practitioner, Lyme Boss, and owner of Discovering Health. I started my health journey when my kiddo, who at the time was almost 2, was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I became an expert on Celiac. After being on a gluten-free diet for 7 years my kid still complained of tummy aches almost daily. He could not fall asleep at night and had problems with frequent urination. Of course, I took him to doctors and they repeatedly told me he was fine and that I should let it go. My mother’s intuition told me there were hidden stressors in my son’s body and I was not going to rest until he was well.
All while I was dealing with the mysteries of my son’s heath, I had my own health issues to wrestle with. I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease. I had unknowingly lived with symptoms for 20 years. For 15 of those years, I was very sick experiencing everything from pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, memory loss, Lyme rage, and ADD-type symptoms. On a pain scale from 1 to 10 (10 being horrible pain), I lived through those 15 years at a level of 4 to 5 pain daily. That is no way to go through life. I used to self-medicate and was extremely depressed. I was an angry, miserable human being.
I was young and life is not supposed to be like that. I felt there was no hope and honestly wanted to die. I went to several doctors of different specialties and they all looked at me like I was crazy because I did not look or act sick. They completely dismissed me stating I was too young to be sick. They would prescribe anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, and mood stabilizers then send me on my way. These drugs just numbed me and made me feel like a zombie. Eventually, my persistence paid off and I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I cried with relief. I told you I am not crazy! I was also diagnosed with Hashimotos, Endometriosis, and had two suicide attempts. due to depression and anxiety.
I have reversed 3 out of 4 of my autoimmune stuff, and put my Lyme into remission.
I knew this program was the final piece to the puzzle with regard to my and my son’s health issues. Only three months into the program I had lost 25lbs and I felt great. The pain I lived with daily is now gone. I am not tired anymore and I have endless energy. I am no longer a miserable and angry person. I laugh now and life is a joy rather than a struggle. I love the fact we are doing so well and I can not wait to help you on your journey to health and happiness, too!!
