HI, I'M LISA.
My story began when I discovered a bald spot on my scalp the size of a Canadian loonie. After about a month, I'd lost almost all of my thick, long hair to what I soon discovered was my autoimmune disease, Alopecia. This was my rock bottom. But the thing about the bottom is, there's only one direction to go from there.
Fast forward to today and I'm living my best life (with hair!) My bottom was the wake-up call I needed to slow down and find balance - physically, mentally and emotionally. Up until then, I was your typical young professional in a fast-paced corporate advertising world. Working long hours, never really 'shutting off and spending a little too much time indulging in drinks after work to 'unwind'.
Thankfully, when it came to "treating" my Alopecia, I refused the steroid injections my MD offered me (hello, band-aid solution?!) and opted to see a Naturopath to address my inflammation and heal my gut naturally with diet and lifestyle changes. After a few short months, I saw dramatic improvements; my digestive issues cleared up, my energy levels improved, my sleep improved, my psoriasis disappeared, my mental clarity and moods improved and best of all, I saw regrowth across my entire scalp! I couldn't believe such simple changes could make such a difference! Living my best life quickly became my passion and it inspired me to enroll in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach so that I can help others struggling with inflammatory conditions live and feel better.
The truth is, we all have our struggles and autoimmune disease is mine. Maybe you're stressed out, overweight, exhausted, or maybe you suffer from autoimmunity like me. Whatever your struggle is, good news — you're human! Your body is an incredible machine with the power to heal itself if given the chance and provided with wholesome food, a little patience, and whole lotta self-love. With the proper support and guidance, anyone can find the balance required to live their best life and I'd be honored to help you discover yours if you're up for it!
