Hi, I’m Beth! I am passionate about my Jesus, my family and about living the healthiest, most vibrant life I can. It’s been a long journey but I love to bake, cook, run, swim, read, hang out with my family and talk about errrrrrrrrthing that has to do with health.
I was diagnosed with Lyme disease when I was 23 years old. It was a pretty gnarly battle. I had a chronic, neurological case and had to fight off two nasty co-infections. My doctor put me on antivirals and antibiotics for nearly 5 years. It was a tough and long road. Although I’m so grateful for my wonderful and faithful doctor, it made me re-evaluate my approach to health. Due to an almost constant state of candida because of those lovely antibiotics, I learned to eat a sugar free and nearly grain free diet. I dated and married my amazing husband about 3 years into my battle with Lyme and he was wonderfully supportive in my very limited diet. Nearly five years after I had been diagnosed, I was able to come to a place of living without any treatment. I am grateful for those tough years because it helps me appreciate the energy and health that I enjoy now. My doctor and OB were convinced I would have a major relapse after the birth of my daughter, and by the grace of God, I have not been treated for it since my first pregnancy. I attribute that to my desire to eat foods that are good for me and living as toxic free lifestyle as I can.
After my beautiful daughter Zoe was born, I became even more passionate about learning about nourishing foods, a toxic free lifestyle and alternative ways to treat illness and disease. Don’t get me wrong. I’m amazingly grateful for the doc and the hospital when they are needed, but we do our best to stay away from them if we can! We now have three wonderful and healthy kids who can chow kale and gulp broth and water kefir with the best of them.
