The biggest challenge I have experienced was the diagnosis of breast cancer. I am a survivor who has dealt with mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation and numerous reconstructive surgeries. This diagnosis lead to a radical change to my diet and lifestyle. Prior to this diagnosis, I considered myself to be one of the healthiest persons you could meet but after thorough research by my myself and my husband, we discovered how many more changes we could make in our diets and lifestyles. I believe that these changes were what got me through treatment and we soon discovered a whole new definition of feeling healthy. I am passionate about passing this information on to my students, friends, and the world at large, as I truly believe that most of the sickness we experience today is due to nutritional deficiencies and stress.
