Six years ago she was diagnosed with a non specific ( that is, affecting several organs ) autoimmune disease and fibromyalgia. She spent three months lying in a hospital bed, coming to terms with the illness and the crippling arthritis. She lost more than 15kg; hives and bruises covered her from head to toe; she suffered from brain fog, hair loss and extreme fatigue. There were many days she couldn’t get out of bed.

During her time in hospital she was given a concoction of drugs from immunosuppressant and antibiotics to steroids, anti cancer drugs and anti inflammatories. To get the inflammation in her body under control. She got nauseated, tired, blurry and foggy. When she woke up from intermittent and interrupted sleep, she felt like a forty year old in an eighty year old body.

She was bent double and unable to get out of bed, her beautiful thick hair was falling out in clumps on her pillow. As she was lying there, she wondered if it could be helpful to heal her gut and give her system a chance to recover, and regain her energy and health .



  1. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something which I feel I would never understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I’m having a look forward to your next put up, I will try to get the hold of it!

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Excellent work!
