I have suffered for thirty years with various illnesses, including seizures and shaking, along with extreme anxiety. I was diagnosed with ME and bipolar. This was incredibly difficult for me, as I was a professional violinist and was forced to give this up due to these symptoms and my inability to use my hands.

Initially, I found out I had terrible blood sugar and realized I had a problem with carbohydrates. I then was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity as was most of my family.

I am now on a low-carb and very high-fat (but good fat) diet and continue to make other important changes, like eating more probiotics. I have fully recovered and today find myself in better health than when I was a child. I now play concerts again and am completely free from seizures, anxiety and lack of confidence!

Beyond this, I am a tall woman, measuring 5′ 8 1/2″, and have suffered from weight problems all my life. For a time, I was quite obese. I lost 77 lbs. and have now kept it off for years! I’m 47, but I look (so I’m told) and feel like I’m in my 30s!
