Elizabeth suffered from endometriosis, pelvic pain, and interstitial cystitis and like many women sought out and followed traditional medical treatment. Part of this treatment included the specialized wide excision of endometriosis by Dr. Cook at the Vital Health Endometriosis Center. While this resulted in complete removal of her disease, she did not enjoy great health and wellness. She realized the path to wellness and a great life required her commitment to creating a healthier lifestyle. Quite frankly, the toll of years of traditional medical treatment was a wakeup call. She realized she needed a long-term healthy solution and made herself a promise to herself to understand and commit to living a healthy, abundant life.
Her journey began with Juicing. She Juiced daily and found it to be an effective means of relieving inflammation, reducing pain, and absorbing vital nutrients all at the same time. Almost immediately she noticed her digestive issues started to subside and her energy levels increased. She also incorporated Acupuncture, Pelvic Floor Therapy, and Affirmations into her journey. One piece to her healing journey was missing and it was a nutrition, diet and lifestyle. She soon discovered which foods her body was sensitive to through an elimination diet to detox her body.
Being inspired by her results, Elizabeth enrolled into Nutrition School to have a more comprehensive understanding about the effects of food on the body and became a Nutrition Health Consultant in 2015. She also trained at the Internationally renowned Center for Mind-Body Medicine including their Food As Medicine training program.
Ten years after initially seeking out medical care for her pain and suffering, she is now 100% pain free, endometriosis free, interstitial cystitis free, and has a happy healthy digestion.
If you are suffering from endometriosis, pelvic pain and or other chronic health conditions, Elizabeth has been in your shoes and has walked the journey you are facing. It is not easy and can be overwhelming. In conjunction with the other health care providers at Vital Health Endometriosis Center, she wants to help assist you in your journey to true health and wellness.
Elizabeth also opened JuiceAlize, a Cold Pressed Juice Company in San Jose. She is passionate about nutrition and happy to help others live a vibrant life.
