My name is Sara. I have created this blog to share with you my experience and journey healing from severe chronic illness.
Since 2016 I've been using Effective Management of Biotoxin Exposure as my main treatment for severe and chronic health problems that had made me fear for my life, including severe level Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) and extreme gastrointestinal problems, gastroparesis and food intolerances. The intensity of physical pain I experienced for weeks and months on end was often enough to send my body into a state of shock.
Before that I had been chronically ill for more than 11 years and got increasingly worse to the point that my body was breaking down completely and I experienced loss of sensation in my nerves, loss of coordination and ability to walk, muscle paralysis, extreme weakness, seizures, total digestion shutdown and gastroparesis, extreme physical pain and inflammation, amongst many other symptoms.
Now I am getting my health and my life back!
I want us to learn together not just to survive mold but to actually Thrive by creating a new way of life!
I have made tremendous progress and feel energised and hopeful for the future. Most of my symptoms are gone, I'm pain-free most of the time and now all that is left is to fine-tune my healing and help my body get back to a more balanced and resilient state.
I am a biochemist with PhD-level training in scientific research.
Understanding how the biological world works on a molecular scale has always been a big passion for me and the challenges I have faced by being so ill have led me to observe, analyse and experiment with different things, learning something new every step of the way.
Using my scientific mind, my own bodily experience and my passion for discovery I have been learning continuously about toxic mold, mycotoxins and other biotoxins, how they behave and how we can best deal with them. And I am sharing with you what I have found so that all of us who are struggling with this might benefit.
In conjunction with Effective Management of Biotoxin Exposure, I am also using other gentle and natural healing modalities to support my body in its natural healing process. I focus mainly on nutrition, microbiomics, and body-mind integration. Meditation and trauma healing practices have also supported progress in my healing throughout my journey.
Here are the scientific papers I have published during the time I was working as a scientist, in case you are curious. I specialized in studying the catalytic mechanisms of enzymes and the structure/function connection.
