I learned the hard way that one’s health should never be taken for granted. At age 19, I became very ill after a dermatologist gave me a 3-month course of antibiotics and steroids for acne. The acne cleared but quickly returned worse than ever before. Soon after, I began suffering from a bizarre array of symptoms: daily headaches, severe digestive problems, odd skin rashes, heart palpitations, uncontrollable sugar cravings, and fatigue.

I was not enjoying my life anymore and at times I thought was dying. I looked terrible and felt even worse. In hindsight, it’s a miracle that I was able to finish school. Over the next seven years, I saw countless doctors who all told me that there was nothing wrong with me. Since all of my basic labs were normal, they could not give me a diagnosis or offer any treatments. My symptoms continued to worsen.

I felt hopeless. I felt disregarded. I was angry and frustrated. But I was desperate to get well. I began pouring over books, science journals and the internet, learning all I could about sickness and healing. More than anything I wanted to know why I had become so sick, seemingly out of nowhere. Eventually I connected the dots and discovered that my sugary diet combined with stress, bad sleep habits and imbalanced gut flora from the antibiotics were responsible for my health problems.

I was lucky to find an amazing medical doctor who practiced integrative medicine. Under his care, I gradually regained my health. What I learned along my quest for wellness – that most illnesses can be prevented and that the body can heal itself – left me amazed and excited. I completely revamped the way I was living and became a health enthusiast. I came to appreciate my health as my most important asset.

When I discovered naturopathic medicine as a profession, I knew it was my calling. I left my career in research and went to naturopathic medical school because I felt a responsibility to help other people who had fallen through the medical cracks.
