In the Spring of 2011, after several years of trying to manage multiple mysterious health problems, I found myself in the emergency room.
I'd been treating my symptoms with yoga, herbs, meditation, and acupuncture, but it had become clear that wasn't enough.
Having finally gotten the attention of my doctors, they ran dozens of tests, and I was relieved to have a diagnosis.
But the treatment felt worse than the disease. I was told to take 17 pills at breakfast, with more sprinkled throughout the day...indefinitely. And this was just the beginning.
I'd prided myself in my drug-free lifestyle, and was crushed by what I perceived, at the time, to be a personal failure for having gotten sick (it wasn't).
Sobbing at my kitchen table one morning as I begrudgingly swallowed each pill, my mom called...
I was offered a choice:
I decided to take my power back.
💗 I began to scribble words of affirmation on all of my pill bottles.
💗 I decorated my medications and supplements with stickers.
💗 My intention-infused containers soon caught the eye of my doctor, who told me I needed to share them with the world.
