I have ALWAYS been an active person. Athlete. Outdoors enthusiast. Adventure seeker. Ironically, I didn’t care to watch what I was eating or drinking, how I was sleeping, or my mental health. I was always taught pain=gain. Just don’t stop. OR pay attention to anything that hurts. Until one day two
years after I had to have a total hysterectomy at 36, I needed emergency gall bladder surgery and found myself unable to function. I went from running 10 miles per day and working full time, to not being able to walk around the block. I was in and out of bed for FIVE years, visiting a long list of specialists to no avail. It was a VERY scary time of panic attacks and anxiety, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, blurry vision, total exhaustion, digestive issues, fainting, blood sugar problems, and not being able to sleep. All of these came in episodes I could not predict. After years of unsuccessful Doctor’s visits and testing, I began my own health journey. Changing everything I could (diet, stress, supplements, relationships, my spiritual walk, NO exercise and LOTS of rest,) I began to get better through research and holistic practitioners. The very best outcome happened. I began to talk and help people who were going through similar problems: dead end help! In 2012, I decided to go back to school to officially become a detective of deeper root causes and keys to unlock frustrated health issues. The bonus is that I have learned and continue to learn so much about how our complicated systems work together and I am now sharing with the world! That is how Living Tree was created. I have found my calling! I now work with high energy people who have crashed and need individualized help back to their amazing selves!
Since I have started this company, I have had some circumstances beyond my control that has pushed the envelope of my health. To you that may not have experienced physical crashes like I mentioned above, but you have faced trials of great magnitudes (Moving, losing loved ones or a job, experiencing divorce, unplanned financial loss, betrayal, taking care of an elderly or sick parent, or even the effects of addiction,) my programs are especially for you! Because I too have experienced many of those stressors all in the last three years, I have realized the importance of taking care of myself and know the ramifications of stress.
