What My Relapse Taught Me

After reversing debilitating joint pain, chronic migraines and eczema in 2015, I was able to stay consistent on my Flare Free Journey for a few years. I was the Executive Chef of The Heimerdinger Foundation, a non-profit organization that serves free organic healing meals to cancer patients in Nashville, and was able to cook the same food at work as I was cooking at home.


So there weren't any gaps in my nutrition.





And I was in the best health of my life.


When I left the foundation to work for myself full-time, I started working on projects that required me to create rich, restaurant-style food full of gluten, dairy and sugar.


Over the years, I started to suffer physical effects of tasting these rich restaurant-style foods at work every day. And within a few years, I ended up in a full-blown Rheumatoid Arthritis flare-up that lasted 2 1/2 years.


By the end of it, I had stools all over the kitchen so I could sit while chopping, cooking and washing dishes.


I was in constant pain 24/7/365 and I couldn't even stand in my own kitchen or garden without my $700 custom orthotic shoes on.





Pain that controlled my life and stole my happiness.


Pain that tainted my love of cooking.


But I couldn't see a way out without committing to eating Flare Free 90% of the time.


Which meant committing to only cooking Flare Free at home AND at work.


Because in order for me to stay well, I have to stay consistent.





So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for coming along this journey with me! For accepting my cooking style, trusting me to feed your family, trying my recipes and embracing the Flare Free Lifestyle!


Helping you on your Flare Free Journey, helps me stay on mine. And I sincerely couldn't do this without you.
