How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be an Energy Coach for Experts?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment in my life. It resulted in everything I do at this point.
That defining moment in my life happened in 2009, after being deadly ill for 5 years. My body had crashed in 2005, after working day and night with a total burn out for two years. I had ignored about every daunting symptom, from paralyzed limbs to total black outs at work. Bit by bit, the diagnosis’s were adding: total burnout, Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Central Myelitis, Poly Neuritis. I was in constant unbearable pain, paralyzed on and off, totally exhausted, completely isolated from life and social interactions, lonely, not able to do anything but laying down. I was crawling over the floor. Sometimes I woke up blind. Or talked backwards.
After curing the first four diseases, I was doomed to stay ill for the rest of my life because no one knew how to cure chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia. "Go back home," another specialist in CFS said after telling me that the tests were positive "and figure out on the internet what works best for you. Take some anti-depressants and magnesium and rest. And accept your disease."
I had become bitter and angry. Angry with doctors who didn’t believe or help me, doctors who told me every visit that it was all between my ears, doctors who said that nothing could be done. But this anger was my drive to keep searching for a solution. I was stubborn. I didn’t want to give up, even though everybody had taken away my hope for cure…
I still remember that day in April, when I found the solution for my debilitating condition. I discovered raw food. "What? Raw food? What the heck is that?!" But I kept reading. A new world opened up to me, I read all day long and knew: “This is it!” I could feel it in every cell of my body! The next day I was 100% raw, even if I didn’t know what I was doing. I just did it. I started by stop cooking my food. Easy enough when you're too tired to cook!
I used the thorough analysis I had made during my ongoing research, made all the links, connected my “Aha” moments, adjusted everything to my new food. Ten days later my pain had gone and I managed to walk pain free. Three months later I was able to stay up all day long, to build up the energy I could only dream of in the past. I had cracked the code. I was cured.
But the most exciting takeaway from healing was: I had found a new passion, mission included. I had gotten a second chance in life and wanted to make that count. I didn’t know how yet, but I knew it would come my way.
