My personal spiritual and physical health awakening began 28 years ago with the premature delivery of our son, weighing 1100g (2.5 lbs) at 29 weeks gestation via emergency caesarean section.
Complications from a condition called toxemia (medically known as pre-eclampsia) developed at 25 weeks gestation was the cause of our son’s very premature birth.
My personal world turned topsy-turvy upon waking up after delivery in ICU. Finding myself intubated on a respirator, unable to speak and swollen all over with 12 lbs of fluids, I was too sick and weak to visit my newborn at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) located 5 floors below until a week later. I spent a total of 12 days in hospital and our son 103 days, a harrowing roller coaster ride which changed our lives forever.
Throughout his childhood, our son was challenged by slow growth, severe eczema, asthma, and multitude of allergies and sensitivities to foods and to his external environment. After eight years adhering to advice of medical doctors without sustained improvement, I made a personal commitment to track down the root cause of our son’s health challenges.
In the beginning, I sought support from natural health practitioners in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), naturopathy, homeopathy, network spinal analysis and various energy healing modalities. A Naturopath and former medical doctor from China inspired me to take proactive steps as a mom to become an astute observer of our son’s physical wellbeing, paying close attention to what he ate and the frequency and quality of his eliminations. I also became aware of the importance of supporting the whole child, how our gut and brain are connected and how our thoughts and emotions impact our physical health.
I discovered the gift of personal empowerment by making positive lifestyle choices which transformed both our outer and inner environments.
The best unexpected gift was the simple blessings which come from finding answers from within.
I was successful in restoring our son’s health over time by focusing on rebuilding digestive and immune functions, making better food choices, supporting body detoxification and restoration with the help of whole foods, natural herbs and pure essential oils.
I became a sponge for new insights and wisdom and was passionate about sharing what I learned to help other families.
In 2005, I chose to leave my 25+ year corporate career to immerse in professional studies. Embracing the principles and practices of vibrational energy medicine, I love working with therapeutic grade essential oils and energy balancing techniques to attain balance and awareness on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
I feel blessed to live my passion as a Core Vitality and Purpose Alignment Coach to help others find their VIBRANT BALANCE.
