A message from Judy
My life experience with successfully recovering from injury has definitely influenced the massage style that I have developed of integrating more than one modality to facilitate a client’s better functioning. Just as success at reinventing myself to discover what career I’m best suited for and successfully healing from stage-3 Lyme disease & systemic Yeast with food brings me to support others in achieving their own life transformations. Healing on all level ultimately boils down to recognizing that how things go for us is largely influenced by our own life choices.
After four years of corporate jobs it was the gift of a lay-off that ultimately set me free on the path to massage therapy as a career and a lifestyle! I now felt challenged and free to re-examine my life goals and find out what I really wanted to do. After several weeks off I connected with just how sick I’d become: with chronic diverticulitis, hypoglycemia, and a chronic respiratory condition. And previously I’d even been hospitalized for collapsing at work from exhaustion. What I wanted to be was not sick! Once I realized that I was so totally thrown off balance emotionally, physically and spiritually by staying in a work environment that was totally a wrong fit for me I vowed to myself that I would never allow myself to keep choosing to do anything that made me sick again! There is little resistance in life when you are on course.
Four years of fun, gainful self-discovery, pursuing only things which came easily and which made me feel fulfilled, finally landed me on the doorstep of massage school. Seeming at the time to be an irrational choice, I followed through just to see where it would lead; and to see if there was something to why a friend had been consistently swaying me in this direction. Once in the field of massage therapy the whole holistic world opened up to me and I suddenly felt as though I had just come back to myself! Everything came easily to me and for the first time I realized that I was on the right course. I had successfully reinvented myself to create a lifestyle that helps me maintain healthy balance in life.
The continual study of massage therapy modalities helped to give me the additional tools I needed to succeed with my own self-healing. Over several years I rid myself of chronic pain and post-concussive symptoms due to four previous car accidents. And by following my self-healing program daily all of the acute symptoms of a herniated disc which initially caused one whole leg & foot to become numb and lead to drop foot were completely relived. I successfully avoided surgery by working with myself until…
In the mid 2000’s I was diagnosed with stage-3 Lyme disease which was progressing rapidly into the nervous system. – Too rapidly to pursue a holistic healing approach. Two years following a 56-day IV therapy I still wasn’t well. Determined to restore my immune system I switched to eating strictly whole foods especially greens five days a week. After eating this way for a month I discovered that I had systemic Yeast! After four months of following Yeast cleanse my micro-biome was brought back into balance. And when the Yeast died every last Lyme symptom left with it! I continued the whole foods protocol as I kept feeling better and better. And three years later my nervous system had been restored from the affects that the Lyme disease and the IV therapy had on it. With no traditional medical advisor to guide me it took me seven years to get well. I did it by listening to my inner wisdom!
While recovering from Lyme I was acutely aware that the exposure to chemicals weakened me. So, I quickly rid my home environment of as many toxins as possible and then found truly toxin-free personal-care products. I’ve swapped store-bought household cleaners for simply making my own and I now use only Swiss formulated skin-care & make-up products which follow European production standards. Since toxicity in the home comes from many sources and can lead to illness just as poor food choices can, I continually look for healthier options for my home environment.
Two years after completing this magnificent healing with food a quest for healing from the effects of the death of my Father ultimately led me to enroll at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Learning the science behind healing with food was validating. And the healing I sought came from being absorbed in the process of integrating healthier food choices with the steps taken to create more balance in all other aspects of life.
In order to enjoy a full vibrant life we must listen to our inner wisdom and feed the whole self. By supporting our physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic aspect we become more wholly fulfilled. Paying attention to how we feel about our job, friends, our physicality, how things are going for us, etc can give us vital information and lead us to a solution and a more balanced life. Chronic illness does NOT have to be an inevitable state of being.
Let me help you achieve better balanced function. I look forward to supporting you in taking small steps towards sustainable changes to achieve your most desired life transformation.
I wish you vibrant Health.
