Like many people, I have been through health challenges in my life. These issues caused me to study alternative solutions, which have helped me overcome my struggles and lead to my passion to help others.
I was born and raised in Santiago, Chile, a beautiful country in South America. Growing up, we ate fresh vegetables, fruits and fish but our diets were also filled with sugar and white flour. When I was 12 years old, I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome as well as suffering from chronic migraines. By the time I was 25 years old, I was on four different medications for acid reflux, joint pain, IBS and headaches.
In 2002, I left Chile and lived in various countries, as well as different parts of the USA, before moving to Boise, ID. My experience living in diverse cultures brought me a deep sense of curiosity about different local diets.
