I'm writing this testimonial with tears in my eyes. I really want to thank you for your passion, dedication, time and energy spent on helping others "fix" or heal what they might not have known was 'broken' and out of place.
At the age of 14, I was diagnosed with endometriosis and all my doctors told me that I might have infertility issues later on in life. When I fell pregnant with my daughter at the age of 29 (she is turning 3 in May), I was the fittest and healthiest I have ever been.. and it still took us 10 months to conceive her. I cut out sugar, alcohol and all other foods that I thought made me sick (mainly grains/starch and dairy), by just listening to my body. My symptoms ranged from headaches and at times migraines, severe stomach pain, sore joints, etc, etc.
In 2016 my husband and I started talking about having another baby and in Dec 2016 decided that we would start trying. In Jan 2017 I went to my doctor for a checkup and ended up having to go for monthly or bimonthly visits until Dec 2017 for prescription after prescription, injections, measurement of my ovaries/eggs, and so much more. In June 2017 I woke up one morning with severe abdominal pain, just to find out a few days later that I was, in fact, pregnant but had an ectopic pregnancy.
I attended the Masterclass at Leafy Greens and knew that it was something I had to do to heal myself and my body. IT WAS AMAZING and a great eye-opener. I've always thought that food was important in our lives and our wellbeing, but until recently only realised just HOW important it is. I've learnt so much about myself and my body.
At the end of Dec 2017, I decided that it was too expensive, invasive and emotionally draining to go through the process of hormone tablets, injections and doctor visits again and that I would give my body a break until I felt mentally ready for it again. A little less than 2 weeks ago I didn't start my menstrual cycle and waited 3 days just to make sure, then decided to buy a pregnancy test. To our surprise... I'M NOW 6 WEEKS PREGNANT!! My husband and I are absolutely over the moon.
I really just want to thank you again for doing what you do and for hosting the event, or I might not have known about or started the reset and probably not be where I am right now. I (unfortunately) know too many ladies who struggle with infertility and it's heartbreaking, so have referred a few of them to you in the hopes of changing their lives as well.
Your passion really shows and I wish you all the best with your business.
