Pilates, Horses, and a sudden long
road to recovery
With a background in Chiropractic, Functional Medicine, Pilates Rehabilitation and Peak Performance training, I have the privilege of working with Olympic athletes, top professionals and amateur equestrian riders from all around the world and help them shift from injury and disease to health and happiness.
Being a competitive athlete myself, I prescribe to the same healthy lifestyle, dietary regime and training programs I have successfully taught my patients over the past 20 years.
So, what could possibly go wrong?
The Moment My Life Changed FOREVER
In 2006 over Christmas Holidays, I woke up with an excruciating headache that was getting worse over the past 24 hours. I was rushed to the hospital and thanks to a carefully executed spinal tap, I was diagnosed with viral meningitis.
Since there is no treatment, the doctors just monitored me and continued administering anti-inflammatory medications intravenously. I was discharged a week later and told to go home and rest.
That was it!
There was no guidance on how to overcome the extreme fatigue, brain fog, cognitive issues, dizziness, inability to find words, intense pain with eye movements, headaches, and emotional waterfall that followed for years to come.
I carried on in life as best as I could, but life was not the same...I WAS NOT THE SAME
Five years later, I sustained a concussion from a tiny car accident and once again all hell broke loose in my brain intensifying every symptom I ever had.
This WTF moment lead me on a ferocious journey to learn EVERYTHING I could on how to enhance my cognitive vitality and create a healthier brain so this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!
Putting the pieces together
I knew I needed up-to-date evidence-based research from renowned leaders in the field of Clinical Neuroscience, Concussion, and Functional Medicine. Being under the direct tutelage of the most brilliant minds in these fields lead me to become a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist with Fellowship training in Traumatic Brain Injury / Concussion Rehabilitation and in Nutrition / NeuroChemistry.
After over a decade of living with constant fatigue, decreased motivation, difficulty concentrating, irritability, blurred vision, gut-related issues, lowered immunity, and more...
I now understood how to:
- accurately evaluate brain-based symptoms and create a treatment plan
- reverse cognitive issues by creating better brain health habits
- develop neuro performance programs to build brain resilience
- be a vibrant person living my life fully again
And after all that was dialed in...
