Hi! I’m Kathy Anne
I help women like you find your healthy balance between nutrition, physical activity, spirituality, and finding balance by looking within yourself and listening to what your body is already telling you that it needs!
I stumbled across a healthy eating lifestyle quite by accident.
Autoimmune diseases run rampant in our family, and they can be pretty vicious. My brother and sister both lost their lives to Autoimmune diseases in their 40’s. That is way too young to die, especially to something that we may have control over based on our lifestyle choices!
When I turned 40, I started showing all the classic signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Intense pain and swelling in my bones and joints, chronic fatigue, brain fog, and more. Sound familiar?
My Rheumatologist diagnosed me and wrote a prescription for Methotrexate. After reading about the side effects, I was worried about taking it, so I asked her if I could get relief from changing my diet. She just laughed and said, “no, not really.” She said that I will always need to take medication. I was scared and began to lose hope, so I started the search for a cure, which led me on a journey that I never imagined would end up here writing to you, but I’m so glad it did!
I now have no daily symptoms, have never taken a prescription med for my RA, and have lost weight! The best part has been the ability to share how I did it with so many people!
I love seeing people feel better, and I want to see you feel better. Follow along with me, and I will share everything I know and everything I continue to learn with you!
My Favorite Pastime
To be completely honest with you, I am a research and education junkie! I have set myself on a path to research and learn as much as I possibly can. It is pretty much all I do in my spare moments. I wasn’t able to finish college for circumstances beyond my control, and I have always regretted that.
I am 52 years old now and trying to make up for it tenfold! I am certified in Plant-Based Nutrition with the Center for Nutrition Studies through E-Cornell University. I’m also currently enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Some other courses I have taken and absolutely loved were the Wellness Business Boot Camp by Elizabeth Rider and Marie Forleo’s B-School.
