About Me – Practicing What I Teach

In March 2017, I was at a crossroads with respect to my own health. It was more accurately, a crisis. I knew that I would either have to change the way I ate, or would need to go on several types of medications to address high blood sugar, high cholesterol and very high blood pressure. The day I made the decision was March 5, 2017 and I’ve never looked back.

Over the following two years, I lost substantial weight and put my type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure into remission.  As a beneficial side-effect, most symptoms of Mast Cell Activation Disorder also went into remission — likely due do the anti-inflammatory effect and lower cytokine response of my diet.

Even though I knew what to do, I had to do it just like anyone else, and sustain it over time. My passion is to help others to do the same.

Everybody has different nutritional needs, so each person’s ‘journey’ will be different than mine.

 

I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, but that Nutrition is BetterByDesign©.
