Food is Not the Key to my Miracle Status
I am sure that many of you know me as a Wahls Warrior. In addition many believe The Wahls Protocol is why I am a walking miracle.
Yes The Wahls Protocol is a huge part, but it is not the reason I am a walking miracle.
As I travel around the USA as part of the award winning "Taking it to the Streets Tour" I am often reminded that most people's entry into self care as healthcare are starting with food.
Food was the last piece to my healing puzzle.
Food is not what I credit with the reason for my miracle status. Food was the final piece for me. My journey toward being a miracle really started when I was diagnosed in 1987. At that time I made the conscious decision to step outside the standard of care by using cannabis for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in place of narcotics. This eventually grew to incorporating essential oils into my wellness plan and it continued to grow.
Cannabis was the 1st step toward my miracle status followed by essential oils & massage.
My life with MS always had a huge movement component which consisted of hard core work outs and interval training until I became disabled in 2001. By 2001 I found myself unable to do anything physical due to severe fatigue making movement a great hardship.
I spite of this I pushed myself & took MS specific swim classes at the local YMCA. I did this 3 days a week for 2 years until I was able to literally roll onto a yoga mat. At this time I had no ability to elevate my arms above my waist & balance was not the best look yet onto the yoga mat I went.
Yoga from day one started to heal my body and continues to this day.
Yoga is my hero and has offered the most bang for my buck as a healing modality. Not only is it a great workout, but it also has a spiritual element. Yoga gives me a '2fer' each day is how I see it. Yoga is a part of my daily life & without it I would not be able to move freely. The end.
I have been a devote yogi since 2001 & will be until the day I die.
Movement was the next key element into my miracle status.
My life was so desperate by 2011 I had nothing, but fear driving the ship. Sleepless nights the norm. Wall walking most days unable to be certain I would not fall. Counting my steps to maximize ability to care for myself. Self medicating using booze a constant & financial ruin a daily reality.
I was completely alone, going broke & my body was failing a little more everyday. Scared doesn't begin to describe what I felt. Suicide a constant thought.
By the grace of life I was able to attend Burning Man. Burning Man is an artist, man against nature, no consumerism or judgement event in the dessert of Nevada offering every attendee the chance to become the person they always wanted to be if even for a day.
At Burning Man I realized my current life was toxic & in order to heal I had to wake up.
About day 4 at Burning Man while praying at the temple I had a brick hit forehead moment realizing that my life was on autopilot and if I wanted to heal I had to wake up & fast. This was a huge epiphany & began what I consider the core foundation of my healing.
My miracle status is a direct result of my work to get my mind right which began on the playa at Burning Man.
I believe the key to becoming a miracle is to live a conscious life filled with self love, gratitude and joy. Waking myself up & owning my life choices 100% are the reason I am a walking miracle. The Wahls Protocol is the way I eat not why I am PaleoBOSS Lady.
- I know who I am.
- I like who I am.
- I believe in the person I am.
- I wake up with joy in my heart everyday.
- I have gratitude for life.
- Mylife is blessed.

This is why I am the miracle known as PaleoBOSS Lady.
I am madly in love with me & the life that I life.
With certainty & purpose I rise and rest daily knowing my life is entirely motivated by purpose & joy. I am awake, alive & in love.
