I was living with a mild, but chronic depression since I was a teen (this will come as a surprise to everyone who knows me). I wasn’t happy, but I could live with it. The turn came with my second pregnancy and postpartum. It was the time to call for professional help. Everything was falling apart, especially relationships. And my own anger scared me to death. Yet, I had this feeling, that calling a shrink won’t help. I didn’t want to plaster my symptoms with medication and endless talks. I wanted to get to the root of it and felt there was a way. After all, this is how it felt - something from inside was “preventing” me. In addition, what once was kinda ok cravings and eating imbalances, took a fast downturn towards uncontrollable, and it left me feeling terrible, both in body and mind, way too often. Following my intuition, I took a holistic health course instead. And it changed my life. There was a way to support my body better so it would function as it’s supposed to! I could indeed live the full 100% of my potential. Using this new direction, I did fairly easy, practical changes to my diet and lifestyle, and I was out of my 2-decade-long and rapidly down-spinning circle in a jiffy (ok, let’s be realistic - in a matter of months).
