I wanted to share something really personal with you.
I believe its a must to share because someone else may be dealing with exactly the same thing.
You may or may not know that I am the daughter of a mother who gave birth to me 5 days after her 15th birthday so I consider myself her best birthday gift haha, that around 1998 I was told by a doctor that I would not be able to have children and early menopause would be my fate or that I was in a 9 year relationship where I never became pregnant.
I remember having a conversation with this person I was with for 9 years and he shared about a friend of his who was in a relationship and they had a hard time getting pregnancy but when the relationship ended, this female got pregnant without any issues with her new partner. This got me thinking that maybe they did not connect on a chemical level.
THIS CRUSHED MY SPIRIT!!!
At that time, I felt like I did not want to put my energy into another relationship because I knew that this one had to end as it was not mutually beneficial. I started wondering about whether we were meant to be together since I never became pregnant plus I felt like the scales were off balanced when it came to this relationship so I eventually got out.
Then, since I was really not interested in getting into another relationship, I made the powerful decision to take care of me and ask for what I wanted instead of hoping good things happen for me because I was good – that does not always work … I’m just saying !!!
In 2005 I revisited my health focus and started training to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach while focusing on cleansing, detoxing and clean eating to reset my body so it can work the way it was intended to work. I needed my body to be ready for when the father of my future child came along at the right time for me. I was sooooo not in a rush because if he never came, I would be happy all by myself.
I took my time and prayed for the type of mate that was best for me and my lifestyle of cleansing, detoxing and cleaning eating. I met my husband in 2009, we married in 2010 and our daughter was born in 2011. I guess we had that chemical connection, wink, wink. Go figure !!!
Some of the benefits of empowering myself over those years has been …
- a painless menstruation that went from 5 days to 3 or 4 days depending on my vegetable intake
- significant change in my body odor where I can use a natural deodorant. No antiperspirant with aluminum needed
- easy bowel movements. Waste no longer hung around in my colon.
- a pregnancy where my only issue was sciatica. My midwife helped me take of that with St. John’s Wort and Skullcap tinctures.
- a beautiful home water birth where I did not need medication or an episiotomy
- the joy of making my daughter’s formula and baby food at home
- the knowledge and practice of how to eat for my body while teaching my husband and daughter to do the same
The information that I have gathered over those years has been so valuable to my journey and the journey of those I have shared it with that I was even surprised recently when a former client and friend shared my name in her blog here along with what I taught her about checking the transit time of the digestion and waste removal of her food from her body to ensure that she was not recirculating estrogen which affects the growth of fibroids. I fell like a proud parent whose child was now using what she taught them. It truly warmed my heart.
