Parasites From Paradise

The day after I returned from Tulum, I woke up to discover that an alien stomach bacteria had taken over my gut.

This was a force like I had never before, ever, in my life, experienced.

As if 2020 hadn’t already been enough of a shit show, the universe decided to send me home from Mexico with a sick and twisted joke of a souvenir.

While I was in Tulum, I had no issues. So, I was completely surprised to wake up the day after returning home to this, um, surprise.

I walked through all the things I drank and ate…

  • Was it from a lime in a mojito I drank?

  • Was it from a salad I ate?

  • Did I have a Charlotte-Sex in the City-in Mexico moment and forget that I opened my mouth in the shower??

Each day after I returned, I woke up and hoped that it would be the day that I would be healthy again.

Each day I was wrong, and started to lose power in my body’s self-healing power.

I even started to follow a BRAT diet and cut out all fats and dairy.

After 4 days of this, I thought I started to see some slight signs of improvement, but then, I went to my parents’ house for dinner and ate brie cheese and fatty steak.

The next day, day 11 of this bullshit, all hell broke loose.

That was it. I was physically and mentally exhausted.

My physical health, or lack thereof, was affecting all areas of my life…

  • I lacked the stamina to serve my clients and my business.

  • I had lost motivation and clarity for meditation – there were so many mornings I literally had to force myself to do it even though I didn’t want to. I was completely blocked so what the fuck was I going to meditate about??

  • I had no creative flow and all I wanted to do was to crawl back into bed and stay there until my body healed.

The scary thing was that, especially since I have Hashimoto’s and gut health is the foundation to ALL health from hormone balance to oral health – yes! your gut health affects your oral health – that I was legitimately scared that my body would not recover from this.

After 12 days of waiting for my body to heal itself, I decided it was time to go to the doctor for an exam and antibiotics.

After 72 hours on antibiotics, my body started to recover and heal. FINALLY!

After I started to feel healthy and back to my regular self, I was then able to focus better on those that needed my help.

So many coaches, entrepreneurs, and online business owners get caught up in serving, taking care of their clients, and growing their business, that they forget to take care of themselves.

Then they wake up one day and wonder why they feel burnt out, unmotivated, resentful towards their business obligations, and even worse, discover they have hormone imbalances and health consequences like adrenal dysfunction, as a result.

You cannot take care of others and build an empire unless you take care of yourself.

It’s like when you’re on a plane and the flight attendants walk you through putting on your oxygen mask FIRST, before you help anyone else.

If you don’t give yourself oxygen first, then you’ll suffocate and die before you can help anyone else.

I get it. I’ve been there with the whole kit and caboodle, including Stage 2 Adrenal Dysfunction which affected my ability to regulate my low thyroid and Hashimoto’s.

That’s why we created our ==> 2020 Energy Reboot <== 

To help coaches, entrepreneurs, and online business owners learn how to take care of themselves so that they can continue to take care of their clients and build their empire.

This 30-day energy and ritual reboot program launches THIS MONTH.
