The focus of my life has expanded over the past few years to encompass health and wellness. I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder in early 2011, among other things, and as my life came to a halt in many ways I realized I had to make some drastic changes.
Since the age of four, I’d been diagnosed with dozens of mental and physical illnesses (MPD/DID, Bipolar, Depression, Hypothyroid, Fibromyalgia, Eating Disorders, Obesity, Adrenal Fatigue and many more! Grab your bingo card!) and as I looked back on that life, while I was happy to be alive, I couldn’t find many weeks, months and definitely no years of happy health.
I spent the next 18 months researching every holistic modality I could find in an attempt to help my body heal. What I discovered was that layering holistic modalities helped the healing go faster and stick when other methods failed. When my lupus was declared officially in remission, I knew I was on to something. I kept going and now enjoy a life free of doctor prescribed medications, side-effects, appointments, and mental illness. It will always be a journey, but now it’s a fun and happy one.
My body began (and continues to) release excess weight (
75lbs 90lbs and counting!) after years of slowly gaining for what seemed like inexplicable reasons. The inflammation in my body that I’d suffered with and caused me pain for over fifteen years is gone.
My brain has never felt so clear and functioned so well. In my quest for physical wellness, I educated myself on how our brains and bodies work together and I now know and understand the very clear connection and the conversation that needs to happen between the two for not only healthy bodily function but for good mental health.
My sister, Rhoda, and I created a layered-modality healing method called HarmonicStasis. You can come to classes and learn how to claim health and choose happiness yourself. You can also become a certified HarmonicStasis Holistic Health Coach and use our layered modality with your own clients.
Previously, I was a consultant for Showtime’s United States of Tara, seasons 1-3. You can see some press from that here. I’ve built my fair share of websites. I spend a good chunk of my time writing and shooting photos. I sometimes paint and design jewelry.
Enough about all that. Let’s pretend it’s our first date and tell each other about our hobbies, ok? I’ll go first. I love paper and art and yarn as much as I love Photoshop and HTML/CSS. I love really bad movies. Like, really bad. (Can’t wait to see this one!)
I’m old in www internet years (online journaling since 1998 and blogging since 2002). I had a son get married last year and a daughter get married this year. And now I’m a happy grandma! I love shooting photos and art and organizing office supplies by color and type. That’s enough about me. Now, you go.
