About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I have been through lyme disease and mold poisoning sepretly and a slew of other health problems at the young age of 30. I am now trying to heal vocal cord dysfunction with raw food and juicing. I also feel like im starting to relapse from lyme disease. I know the body can heal given what it needs and i have had more success with diet through these illnesses but havnt gotten it completly right yet. I believe raw food and juicing might be the key. I am here for support along the way and hopefully can help others with what i have gone through. I miss my life, i miss playing with my kids I want to ride a bike agian and drive a car I want to run on the beach and swim agian and right now i cant do these things due to my vocal cords! Id give anything.....
