My Story (In a Nut Shell)



Several years ago life threw me a curve ball and I forgot to duck. It hit me square in the face and left me feeling as if I were sinking in quicksand for a very long time. Our youngest child was born beautiful and healthy, but at a year of age he got sick for the first time in his life and was diagnosed with severe gut dysbiosis including candida (yeast) overgrowth and leaky gut syndrome. This caused further issues within his body including speech, focus and socialization issues. By three years old he was given an autism diagnosis, and I felt as if someone had placed us at the top of a very large mountain without a way down.

So, I did what any mama who loved her child more than herself would do, I went into battle mode to heal my son. Against all odds it would seem, because I was told there was no cure and there was little hope my son would even speak again. In my mind a belief was just a thought I'd keep thinking and that thought would be that my son would heal. For years I immersed myself into researching any information I could get my hands on to help my son to live his best life. In order to do that though, I felt I had to put my own self care up on a very high shelf for another time. All of my energy, attention and time was dedicated to his healing, not to mention our four older children who needed me to be present in their lives as well. My hard work and diligence paid off as I found the causes of my child's symptoms and ways to heal them through mostly natural remedies and treatments. I rejoiced as my son was getting better, but I soon realized in my efforts to heal him, I had forgotten to take care of my own self. Thus, began a journey turning my focus back to my own health and happiness. Read more HERE about my sons healing through fermented foods and how using yoga, meditation, exercise and a real food lifestyle I made my journey back to a healthier, happier me.

More Tid Bits About Me & the HGK.


Once upon a time I really disliked cooking. I was the first to admit I was no Betty Crocker, plus I really preferred eating out to pots, pans and making a mess in the kitchen.


Then my son got sick and needed a clean, healthy diet to heal. That's when I discovered that I do some of my best cooking, creating, and healing in my kitchen. It’s where I sit on my laptop and journal, it’s where I create delicious, gut healthy foods for myself and my family, and it’s where I feel the most intuitive and inspired only coming in second to being outside in nature of course. It also happens to be where my family gathers together the most.


So,I invite you to take a seat at my table, grab a cup of coffee or tea and join me for a chat about life, love, spirituality, diet, foods, healing, and more. It is my honor to have you here.
