What appeared as the spontaneous development of severe allergies, and chronic sinus infections, was the manifestation of my inactive, nutrient deficient lifestyle. I found myself caught up in this perpetual cycle of repeatedly receiving allergy shots for 2 years, with no end in sight.
There I was boxed in, with no way out. No matter how much I followed the doctor’s orders, I remained in constant pain and discomfort year round.
Determined to get out of this downward health spira, I was fueled to look beyond what “they” said I should eat and endure to be “healthy.” So, I dove into the health and wellness space and researched all aspects of food, health, and wellness. This catapulted my wellness journey.
Over the course of two years, I transitioned to a dairy free, Pescatarian diet, followed by a mostly whole foods plant based lifestyle. Thankfully, I was able to eliminate my daily pain and wean myself from the weekly injections. Never could I have imagined that I had it in me to completely change my whole perspective on wellness.
Although I was no longer tethered to the doctor, I still had so much more to learn. Yes, I was healthier, but I had ignored my physical health. No matter how much I wanted to lose weight I still couldn’t quite commit to a consistent regimen. Determined to overcome this hurdle, I thrusted myself into books that highlighted the importance of self care.
Self care is a continuous process that is practiced in all that we do. It’s not just on “Self care Sunday.” This epiphany soon freed me of any Mommy or wife guilt I would feel anytime I attempted to do something just for me. I opted to make my health and wellness a priority.
