Rosie's STORY: "12 years ago, I had it all, I was very young and was in the top of my field with 700 people working for me. I’ll own that I was a workaholic. I properly burned the candles at both ends.

My life hit a crisis point. I became chronically ill and was hit with a whole host of health issues; Meniere’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, autoimmune graves disease, digestive problems, not to mention debilitating anxiety.

I went through months of grueling tests, MRI’s, CT scans, ENT specialists, audiologists – you name it. My chronic illness worsened, my body kept crashing and my ability to think clearly was diminishing. There were days I couldn’t get out of bed at all let alone crawl to get to the bathroom. I became totally unreliable, not knowing when an attack of vertigo or nausea would start or end.

As my condition moved in, life moved out. I was ready to give up. Ready to let the anxiety and diagnosis win.

I knew my life needed to change.

I was neglecting myself, my health was down the rabbit hole and I wasn’t feeling fulfilled anymore. I was paralyzed because I wasn’t where I wanted to be. My mind made up a lot of things around my self-worth, thinking something was wrong with me and I wasn’t getting the results I wanted.

My wake up call came when after months of sick, I got another diagnosis that I had not one, but two incurable illnesses – autoimmune condition and Meniere’s and with it came the dreaded, “there’s nothing we can do.” The doctor recommended I get my thyroid removed, take radioactive iodine and synthetic hormones for the rest of my life. It was in that moment I knew it wasn’t ok. This wasn’t an ‘aha’ moment, it was a smack around the head with a cold dose of reality.

And that was when I became the CEO of my life. I left the doctor’s office and questioned everything. My life needed to change. I decided I wasn’t going to let this grim prescription set the course. That was when I did a complete 180 on sick and opened myself to this new life. I furthered my studies and applied the wisdom of the world’s most renowned and best holistic experts and mentors in the world.

Using an inside out approach, my “sick” had completely gone. I went back to the doctor’s office. But this time it was different. My levels were all back in the normal range and I was officially autoimmune disease-free. My burnout, fatigue and overwhelm were all gone and replaced with so much energy, balance, and vitality. The moment I took control of my happiness, I looked in the mirror and couldn’t stop smiling at the woman staring back at me.

This week, our guest Rosie is from Australia and keeping that in mind, I'd like to ask you to make a donation to Together Rising to help with the devastation caused by the fires that have been ravaging the country for months now. MUCH LOVE,
