Millions of people struggle with autoimmune conditions – maybe you’re one of them. If you are, then listen up: You CAN heal yourself. You don’t have to go through a lifetime on prescription pills, just managing your symptoms, masking your pain. You can heal, and you can thrive. Today’s guest is living proof that the body can heal itself if given the tools it needs to do so. From the age of 12, Lauren Tatarchuk was a medical mystery. Diagnoses were proclaimed: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, lupus, Lyme disease. She struggled with chronic pain, exhaustion, muscle weakness, severe migraines—she didn’t have the strength to get out of bed without Adderall. Lauren was so heavily medicated that she doesn’t remember much of her adolescence. She was on a shoebox of pills every day – until that day she snapped, ripped the medicine box off the wall and threw the pills across the room. She fell to the floor, sobbing. Enough was enough. Enough with the pills, and enough with the victim mentality.
