Conventional healthcare frequently disbelieves women when they seek care. The same thing happened to me. So, I decided to create a collaborative, safe space for autoimmune patients to heal and be heard. I'm excited to give you a sneak peek into my personal WellTheory Care Plan. You'll see my healing foundations, nutrition, lifestyle, and supplement guide. My plan is re-evaluated biweekly with my team to ensure I'm on the right track to healing and relief. It's just a glimpse into the whole body care I receive that zeroed in on my root causes and completely reversed my symptoms.
In my intake session, I had shared with my Care Team that addressing my root causes of Lyme disease, mold/heavy metal toxicity, and gut dysbiosis was my top priority. My goal in working with WellTheory was to reduce some of the associated symptoms, including bloating, fatigue, and brain fog. After I completed my nutritional assessment, I received a breakdown of the systems in my body that needed attention and support.
Thanks to many of the dietary and lifestyle changes I've made as a WellTheory member following a personalized care plan, I now have improved digestion, clearer skin, more energy, less brain fog, and less pain and achiness.
Changes to nutrition and mealtime practices increased digestion and nutrient breakdown, decreased bloating, and decreased rashes.
Incorporating bile producing foods and detoxification practices caused increased energy, decreased achiness, and decreased brain fog.
Adjustments to hydration, nutrition, and supplementation allowed for increased nutrient absorption and thus decreased fatigue and decreased stress.
I feel incredibly lucky to be where I'm at today because the healing journey is not linear. For me, this has been years in the making and I'm grateful every morning that I wake up and feel like I can take on the day — I really don't take that for granted anymore.
Like so many others, my healing journey took some trial and error. Our society often teaches us to look outside of our own lived experiences for validation and answers. But remember that you are the world's best expert on your body. There's really no-one-size-fits-all path to healing, so seek guidance externally but look internally to decide what's right for you. Don't forget: your body knows best — listen to it and advocate for yourself!
