My original journey set off into a path of compassion and the need to provide. Whether it is healthy food products, a safe food environment for all or simply a lending ear.
After a challenging first year of health in my son’s life and a rollercoaster of issues that went unrecognized in the medical field, our lives changed for the better.
Ignorance led to a series of viral infections and rounds of antibiotics for my son. I knew it wasn’t right but I also didn’t know where to turn. In 2009, my son was 18 months old and very sick. Eventually diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (discovered later on) due to a prolonged virus attacking his pancreas.
I was directed towards natural practices and researched the link of celiac disease or gluten intolerance with type 1 diabetes. Although explained to me that Easton’s condition was not created by food and won’t be fixed by food (by his endocrinologist), I was more determined than ever to help my son. I learned that my bowel issues as well as joint and muscle inflammation was deep rooted into what I was eating. “One’s food is another’s Poison”
Now 12 years later, my path has led me into many directions of helping others that have been through, are experiencing or learning they have choices as well as the power to achieve good health through food.
My inspiration continues to grow with the individuals I meet everyday within my service. I am truly blessed to help others and especially during the times we are experiencing right now. By providing clean recipes, supporting local farmers that follow ethnical practices and education we are all benefiting.
A positive update:
Although my son has a life sentence with Diabetes, he is able to enjoy most foods that he was restricted from for 8 years or more. Giving his system time to heal, reset and rebalance has been the key to living an otherwise healthy Life. Now 13 he is thriving. Totally worth all the Dedication and hard work. So keep on keeping on mommas!
