Hey there gorgeous!
My name is Danielle, and I started this blog after everything in my life became wildly, WILDLY different.....in the best possible way!
5 years ago, I successfully reversed crippling rheumatoid arthritis, including every other symptom I dealt with such as; insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, depression, uveitis, migraines, chronic infections, and even allergies.
Yeah..... all that......for reals, yo.
Even though some of the best doctors in the country said I'd be permanently wheelchair-bound by now, I have no pain or symptoms.
And at 35, I feel younger than ever did at the age of 20!
But best of all, I no longer feel helpless, because I'm finally in control of my health, and I know how to keep it that way.
Sound too good to be true? It's really not.
Though many would consider it a virtual miracle, considering how rare my story is, ....it's just that; rare.
Anyone who is determined can replicate my results if they so choose, because I did it based on scientific principles that are constant, no matter what your health history is.
I'm not not anyone special, just someone who didn't give it and kept trying, testing and learning.
You’ll often hear success stories of someone getting relief after a few weeks, or even months after trying a new diet or product but I waited 5 years before speaking out, because I wanted to be sure I'd found a long term solution.
Especially since we are constantly beaten over the head with the message (propaganda) that "you can’t stop the progression of rheumatoid arthritis; all you can do is manage pain".
We all know RA is a degenerative disease that gets worse with time, takes years off your life, and according to most doctors, is incurable.
But I not only got out of pain, I completely stopped the progression.
Now I can freely do any of the things that used to cause flare-ups.
Formerly, I couldn't even wear high heals, or bend over because my joints would swell-up to the size of melons (not an exaggeration).
Now, even if I roll my ankle or fall down, I have zero pain and swelling, even though I've had multiple surgeries in the past.
So how is it possible, that not only did I stop inflammation, but my mobility and overall health is better than it was at a younger age?
It comes down to cellular energy.
Every one of our cells is capable of regenerating, renewing and healing when given enough energy and the right environment.
This means that even though we're all different, at the base level (the cellular level) we all need the same thing: cellular energy.
But this isn't common knowledge, even in alternative health & wellness circles.
To put it in perspective, out of 50+ million people with autoimmunity and RA in the U.S., I've seen less than 5 people get complete freedom from symptoms long-term.
And I've been looking for solutions for a LONG, LONG time; almost 15 years.
Some people get temporary improvement for a few months, or a few years with different modalities but eventually come out of "remission" and have no idea how to resolve it long term.
So it's exceedingly rare to find anyone like me, who NEVER has flare-ups anymore, and even more rare, to find someone who knows how to keep it that way.
I don't say this to impress you, but to impress upon you how sadly rare my story is.
And not only did I stop progression of arthritis, but all the other horrible symptoms like insomnia, fatigue, depression and anxiety.
This is because healing isn't compartmentalized, it's systemic.
Meaning; you don’t need 20 different treatments for 20 different symptoms.
If you heal the body, and give it what it needs, everything starts working in harmony together.
That isn't to say it was easy......... it wasn't.
But it WAS absolutely worth it!
But, by far the best part is peace of mind..... because now I’ll never again be worried about being a cripple or feeling useless, or helpless.
I now have the ability to prevent any of my former symptoms, which gives me one of the most life-giving things out there; HOPE.
If you're looking to heal RA or autoimmunity, the most logical step to take, is to learn from somebody who's already succeeded.
Model the success of someone who's achieved what you want.,,,,don't try and re-invent the wheel.
That way, you skip all the frustration, mistakes, and dangers of going it alone, not to mention, save yourself a TON of time.
Anyone can win a couple poker hands, or make a lucky trades in the stock market, but if you want to be successful, you seek out those who have a long-term track record, not just a couple of lucky guesses.
So, basically I'm saying......I'm your girl. :)
I can truly help you, because I've been on both sides of it, and seen every. damn. angle of this hideous monster called Rheumatoid Arthritis, or rheumatoid disease.
And I didn't didn't just stumble blindly upon a solution the first time I looked.
I searched relentlessly for 15 years and tried what feels like every supplement, diet and protocol out there, which is I'm so confident about how to succeed.
In my opinion, almost every auto-immune protocol has something right, and something wrong with it; which is why you see such mixed results.
So most people think , "well, diet doesn't work for everyone".
But I believe, the RIGHT diet, WILL work every time.
Very few have really tried it all, and even fewer have had long-term success, which makes me all the more confident in my ability to bring clarity, truth and hope to a very dark environment of hopelessness and a culture that pressures people to just "accept your disease and take your medication,".
I believe we are all capable of incredible healing, and improvement.
That doesn't mean it's easy, but that it is possible.
In this blog, and in my courses and groups, I teach you how to find YOUR perfect healing diet that works for you in your current state of health, no matter what your health history looks like.
I finally was able to heal because I changed my focus to metabolic healing.
This means making sure my body gets what it needs from the “ground up”....at the cellular level.
When your cells work; your body works.
This is not what most people will tell you....... But then again, most people haven't conquered RA.
I would've killed for this info years ago, which is part of why I'm so passionate about this now; I know the need for it.
I wasted years in fear and stress and suffering, and I don't wish that fate on anyone else, if I can do something about it.
Once I healed, I realized that I could've been healthy my whole life if someone had simply given me the info and insight I have now.
This realization turned my world upside down.
I didn't used to be a blogger, I had a brick-and-mortar business, but when you heal from an "incurable" disease you want to shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone you know about it.
So, now I do. :)
So, if you've got R,A., and are searching for holistic solutions solutions,......... THIS is the place for you!
Since you’re here right now, something tells me that you’ve got a resourceful attitude, a positive mindset, and the will to create real, lasting change.
But after all the failed attempts at healing, you probably
Have no clue what, or WHO to trust
Need help understanding science vs. science fiction
Are tired of trying things that don't work, and being constantly disappointed
Feel isolated. You wish more people could relate to what you’re going through. People often say they care, but this illness effects our lives so thoroughly, most people just don’t understand, even when they try.
Don't like the scary "side-effects' of drugs (I mean, really, when they say side effects, they really just mean EFFECTS, amiright? Fatigue, anxiety, insomnia and cancer are not just mere side-effects.
And are ready to do whatever it takes to be in control of your health, and not controlled by your symptoms.
if you know deep down you're capable of feeling better, and more alive, But don’t know how to make that a reality......you've hit paydirt, baby.
To get a feel for the mindset around here, I'll fill you in on some of my beliefs:
- I believe your body works perfectly when it's not poisoned and given the right nutrients NO MATTER what your personal health history, or genetics are. I’ll show you how.
- I believe life IS WAY TO SHORT to live with pain, especially when there's something you can do about it. I’m here to help empower and equip you to heal yourself through time-tested, scientifically-proven nutritional and environmental principles.
This is not mindset mantra stuff. This is real solid testable stuff that you can "take to the bank".
- I believe you deserve to be at peace with your body, and not let physical ailments impair your quality of life. And I’m determined to give you the tools to create total freedom from those struggles.
- I also believe more than 50% of nutritional, diet and alternative medicine information out there is absolutely useless crap, and critical thinking has taken a vacation (from both mainstream AND alternative modalities).
I want to help you get so much healthier, and happier that arthritis doesn't even cross your mind anymore.
My goal is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to heal yourself, so you can forget about RA, and give your attention to the things that matter.
You will not find typical health advice on this blog.
But what you will find, is stuff that works.
There's no magic pill, and healing isn't simple or easy, but it absolutely worth it, and opposed to what most sources will tell you; absolutely possible.
The results will speak for themselves, because results don't lie.
