Embark on a transformative journey that commenced in the autumn of November 1999. Unbeknownst to me at the time, this journey would lead me through uncharted territories of entrepreneurship, resilience, and self-discovery. As a stay-at-home mom nurturing a two-year-old’s dreams, I sought not just a means to contribute financially but an opportunity to craft a destiny I could truly call my own.
Driven by a fervent desire for autonomy, I ventured into the world of entrepreneurship with a direct marketing company. The prospect of owning a business excited me, and with unwavering determination, I embarked on a path that promised growth and fulfillment. Eagerly embracing the prescribed strategies, I followed the system diligently, reaping commendable success along the way. Climbing the ranks within the organization, I found myself behind the wheel of cars earned through dedication, a testament to my achievements.
The journey, though marked by victories, was not devoid of challenges. Yet, my unyielding belief in the company’s vision and my role within it kept me resolute. For thirteen years, I led a team, cultivating relationships with dedicated customers and establishing a robust foundation.
Then, in the turning point of January 2012, my life was forever altered. A minor dental procedure set off a series of events that would test my endurance. Intense facial pain emerged within weeks, thrusting me into a relentless cycle of dental visits and examinations. A scheduled root canal, postponed due to an unforeseen car accident, only prolonged my discomfort. Despite multiple root canal procedures, my pain endured, propelling me into a seemingly endless loop of medical consultations, dentist appointments, specialist visits, and even emergency room visits.
May of that year brought a pivotal moment when an attending physician suggested consulting a neurologist. Thus, my journey took a new trajectory as a diagnosis of Trigeminal Neuralgia emerged, shedding light on the enigmatic pain. This revelation led me down a path of acupuncture, TMJ treatments, injections, and a litany of medications. My days were characterized by the intricate dance of dosages, ranging from opiates to muscle relaxants, all the while grappling with the side effects.
With time, the pain subsided, allowing me to gradually wean off some medications. However, this respite was accompanied by new complications. Digestive woes emerged, and my life became a procession of visits to the GI doctor. After an array of tests and procedures, gallbladder removal was deemed a solution. Yet, this intervention proved insufficient, and the pursuit of answers persisted. A multitude of tests later, it became apparent that conventional medicine held limited solutions.
In December 2015, I embarked on a personal mission to chart my own course toward health. This transformative journey led me through unorthodox paths and alternative treatments. By April 2016, after meticulous food logs and testing, I embraced a Ketogenic diet as a last resort. Simultaneously, I chose to step down from my leadership position within my current company, recognizing that my health demanded undivided attention.
While my recovery was a gradual process, I slowly began to glimpse the light at the end of the tunnel. Amidst the struggle, a desire emerged to share the wisdom garnered from my five-year ordeal. Empowered by my own triumphs, I yearned to spare others the pain and agony I had endured. Today, I stand pain-free and medication-free, a living testament to the power of resilience and determination.
Guided by my journey, I now dedicate myself to helping others manifest success through sustainable changes. Each small triumph builds confidence, setting the stage for larger victories. I have found purpose in sharing my struggles, triumphs, and insights. Not only do I advocate for healthier choices, but I also support individuals seeking transformation in their health and financial well-being.
Through my story, I aim to inspire, empower, and educate. From the intricacies of Ketogenic diets and mindful living to entrepreneurship and holistic well-being, my journey has woven together a tapestry of knowledge and passion. I invite you to journey alongside me, exploring the myriad paths that have led to my transformation. Your presence is a cherished privilege, and I hope my experiences can provide solace, inspiration, and guidance on your unique path. Thank you for joining me on this journey of discovery and growth.
