“You Changed My Life Forever”4
March 5, 2013 by Kimberly Beauchamp, ND
“I’ve been trying for so long to become pregnant and now I am!”
“I’ve wanted to tell my husband so many things that I finally have to courage to say.”
“I’ve lived with sinus infections for most of my adult life. How can I ever thank you for finding the cause and curing them?”
“I’ve always had horrible menstrual cramps and now they’re gone!”
“I’ve been in debilitating pain from fibromyalgia for years. This is the first time I’ve been pain-free without my meds.”
These are the types of things that people have been saying to me for years. And it’s wonderful. I love that I can help people on their journey to wellness. But I’ve never been on the other side of the table. I’ve never had that earth-shattering, mind-blowing, all-encompassing experience where I just wanted to reach over and kiss the person that helped get me there.
The past month and a half have been transformative for me and my health. Not that I felt all that awful, but I had slipped away from feeling truly great.
Working multiple jobs to support our lifestyle choices (mostly to keep our kids in a private Waldorf School and eat organic food) left me with little energy to spare. I was lucky to get lunches made, never mind stay awake to read a chapter of the girls’ bedtime story.
So now when I’m up creating love notes to put in their lunch boxes or racing up and down flights of stairs with my oh-so-vital little ones, I can’t help but tear up. Because I just want to shout out, “THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK!!!”
You know who you are. And the next time I see you, I just might kiss you. So watch out.
The Paleo Diet, exercise, or a combination? I always exhausted…………and you know I exercise so it’s not that.
Maybe you’re twice as tired because you have twice the kids? Seriously, though, I know you’re an exercise fanatic, Sherry! I am sticking to the Paleo diet and I really think it’s the combo of the diet and CrossFit that’s doing it. I feel so much better on the days I work out. I can’t go every day (partly because of cost and partly because I’m just too darn sore), but I usually walk on my off days. It’s just not the same, though. But even on walking-only days I have more energy than before. I think the grains really taxed my digestion and every other system. It’s funny, I’m not even tempted to eat my “staple” junk food; it’s just not worth giving up feeling this great!
Hi Kim! I just wanted to pop over and thank you for sharing my article earlier this week, and also: so excited for you about the changes you’re seeing from Paleo and CrossFit! I don’t eat Paleo but CrossFit has changed my life for the better in many ways. xoxo
Thanks, Winnie! I’m definitely at risk of alienating my remaining friends with all my CrossFit talk, but it’s too good not to share. I was so excited to read your article and witness how it’s changed your life, too. 🙂
