In 2013, I was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune condition called relapsing polychondritis. Being diagnosed with an “incurable” disease was a harsh wake-up call — until then, I had always thought that my diet was superb (e.g. a daily dose of plain Greek yogurt with fresh berries… who would have thought?).
On the basis of extensive research, I rejected my doctor’s orders and eschewed the perils of corticosteroid treatment, instead choosing a path of “Food Over Medicine.” I switched to a low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet that not only reversed my autoimmune condition, but also improved my health in countless other ways. Based on the statistics, I was supposed to be either bedridden or dead by now, but instead I am alive and well — and medication-free!
These positive changes inspired me to study nutrition-based health further, to the point where it has become an obsession of mine. In rapid succession I earned the following certificates:
- Vegan Nutrition Certificate from the Vegetarian Health Institute (2015)
- Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University’s School of Continuing Education through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation (2015)
- Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition & Cooking from Rouxbe Online Cooking School / Forks Over Knives Online Cooking Course (2015)
- Starch Solution Certificate from Dr. McDougall’s Health & Medical Center (2016)
- Certified Food Over Medicine Instructor through Wellness Forum Health in Columbus, Ohio (2019)
