For 35 years, I had a successful career in the record industry despite a serious lack of balance. I worked 70 hours a week, ate out 99% of the time and rarely exercised. Health was something for other people to worry about. “I’ll sleep when I’m dead” was my motto. Like so many, the fast life caught up with me. In 2003, I began to feel tired. Bone tired.
After 10 years of pain and dozens of doctors, I was correctly diagnosed with Systemic Lupus by the Mayo Clinic. My doctor prescribed the leading medication for the disease. One year later, my quality of life was still impaired, despite my “remission” from lupus. I realized something else had to change.
My journey helped me understand that I could no longer ignore the relationship between my lifestyle and my health. That what I ate and how I lived made a big difference in how I felt.
I decided to study at IIN to learn how to best take care of myself. What I’ve learned has been life changing for me, and I know it can be for you too.
