Not prepared to give up or give in…
I love research and sinking my teeth into proper double-blind, peer-reviewed studies so decided, although I was a vegetarian at the time, that I would try the medical keto diet, despite the fact that very few adults in South Africa had tried it.
I cried throughout my first few meals eating meat but realised I had to put my health first … in fact, that became a reality for me in everything – HEALTH FIRST! Medication wasn’t sufficient to keep me seizure free – I needed to introduce new lifestyle techniques to ensure my health was always a priority.
There have been years of trial and error, but now, it’s crazy to think of all that and how amazing I feel now. I am on a quarter of the meds I was on.
I get up at 4:30 am, do my journaling, teach 3 high-intensity classes before 8 am, and then I start my real job, where I have the honour of helping people to gain control of their seizures!
