Thank you for visiting My Life Delicious!
I specialize in helping women balance their health so they can live the life they envision for themselves. I’m married to my awesome husband David and live in the Houston area with our pup Shelby. How did I get into nutrition? Let me tell you!
So let’s get a little real here!
As with so many of us that decide to make nutrition and healthy food part of our life’s mission, my journey began after years of illness. Since I was a baby I have dealt with severe intestinal problems. I went back and forth from severe diarrhea to severe belly bloating constipation. My parents went through the trials of carting me from doctor to doctor to find out what was going on and how they could help me. I suffered from severe vitamin and mineral deficiencies and picked up every cold and flu that came around. From bladder infections to ear infections, a kidney infection and chronic sinus infections I was a pretty sick little girl. After exhausting all doctors we could, my parents were pretty much told to give it time and I’d grow out of it. As I grew older the diarrhea, constipation and bloating were a bit less, but always there. As the years progressed so did my symptoms. Not only did I have chronic sinus infections, but now chronic daily headaches. My stomach was always bloated and inflamed. I had horrible pms and menstruation that would often bring with it flu like symptoms and hours soaking in hot baths to attempt to quell the pain. Oh and did I mention at least 3-4 rounds of antibiotics every year! As I entered my 30’s I began gaining some weight and eventually ended up with reflux. Yet another trip to the doctor and a prescription for Nexium left me at wits end. Was this a precursor of things to come? Would prescriptions now be a part of my everyday life? Not if I could help it!
“I have been going to Amy for about a year since I had gall bladder removal surgery. She is very knowledgeable in her field. Through her help with my digestive problems, I have been able to get off Prilosec and Pepcid. She also identified some other symptoms I had as a result of autoimmune thyroid disease. Through diet and recommendation to integrative medicine dr who changed my thyroid medication, I have lost weight and feel much better! Would highly recommend Amy for all nutritional needs!” Gordan Gauthier
I started my mission with a little book called Natural Alternatives to Nexium and I never looked back. I decided to investigate the possibility that I had food allergies, which NEVER occurred to me before reading this book. In fact, besides gaining some weight I really never gave food much thought in relation to all my symptoms. I decided gluten was a potential culprit and a good place to start. Over the next few weeks I went through a gluten detox and man did I feel terrible! I could barely lift my arms to dry my hair and thought I must have some terrible disease! Luckily those feelings passed and over the next few months, so did my bloated belly, my chronic headaches, joint pain, 25 pounds, sinus infections, reflux and the severe intestinal issues. I was in shock. I had no idea all the things I thought were just the cards I was dealt were actually caused by the foods I was eating! I began changing not just to a gluten free diet but to a whole foods diet.
And I started to learn. I learned how food heals or hurts, how I can live without feeling sick and tired all the time, how I can feel good and take on the world! I know many of you out there are feeling just like me. You deserve to be empowered to feel healthy, alive, and happy. Yes, you deserve it!
