Stacey Venancio can trace her health issues back to childhood but it was only as an adult that it really began to impact on her life.
Stacey went the gluten free route before her diagnosis but found that she still wasn’t feel that well.
She gradually started becoming more mindful of what she ate, noting how her body reacted and seeing how she felt.
Stacey was working in a very stressful job as a waitress and one particular Summer was a crossroads in her life.
The stress of the job combined with a fender bender accident caused Stacey’s hair to start falling out in clumps. It was taking her hours to try to cover up the bald spots using creams and sprays and causing her a lot of anxiety and misery.
After confiding in her boss about how stressed she was feeling, her boss dismissed her issues and then added another shift to her workload!
It was at that point that Stacey knew that things had to change. She quit her job with her then husbands blessing, gave up smoking and decided to actively work on healing and recovery and it was exactly the break that she needed.
After her marriage ended, Stacey decided to take her health to the next level by trouble shooting symptoms, tweaking her diet, managing her stress and putting the pieces of her health puzzle back together.
