Dr.Terry Wahls and Laihaina Pirri at the Wahls conference 2017 in Iowa.
You Are Worthy to Your Wellness
You may be on this page because you are tired of feeling weak, tired and sick. Your researching how could I help you achieve your health goals and if I am the right health practitioner for you.
It started when I found out about Dr. Wahls, her history as a medical doctor, her illness, her diagnosis, her shift in functional medicine, her challenges, her symptoms reversing, her will and determination. This all just sounded much too familiar, like my own personal story with my son.
My son Anthony was really sick, where his own body was attacking him aggressively, an autoimmune disease which they could not diagnose until this day. Once Anthony was stable and out of critical care his ongoing rehabilitation definitely took some time and patience but with a clear goal in mind to recovery through natural alternatives was the best option.
Dr. Wahls and I have the same beliefs in functional medicine, getting to the root cause of your chronic symptoms and illness by giving the body proper and specific nutrition tailored to your body’s needs to recover. Eating to heal!
Being a Nutritional health practitioner and Anthony’s history of autoimmune disease, there was no doubt in my body therefore, I booked a flight to Iowa and got my Wahls professional certification to further my education to use food as medicine. I am blessed to have helped hundreds of individuals like you improve lifestyle and to achieve your health goals.

My Experience to Changes
The hospital was my home for months in critical care and in isolation at Sick Children’s hospital in Toronto, it was a mothers nightmare. With a six months old baby, I was grateful for my family’s support.
Seeing my son hooked up to tubes, machines constantly beeping, medications, him poked by numerous doctors and endless meetings telling us to prepare for the worst.
I’m not telling you my story to feel empathy for me, only to share how I saw this physical reality that crushed me but I found it in me to shift my state of mind, focus and energy to create my own happier no matter how bad it got. I faced and confronted my nightmare, it changed everything.
Changing The Way we Looked at Him, Changed The Way I Was Seeing Him
His recovery was not an over success but as a seed in quality soil, light, clean water and “time,” the seed will grow and so did Anthony and our experience. Like this seed in an harmonious environment, your body can fuel and thrive to achieve balance once again too.
“I hope sharing with you my life story inspires you, like Dr. Wahls has with hers. Know that you’re not alone and your struggles with your health and life can become easier.”
As I proudly combed Anthony’s hair to finally get him ready to leave the hospital in his wheelchair and go home, I felt like the luckiest person and I understood that a miracle had happened. As we said our goodbyes to the hospital staff and even some doctors who had contrasting comments, I focused on the wonderful, hopeful doctors. I just hoped Anthony’s amazing recovery had planted a seed of hope for the doctors who couldn’t see past the science.
As a parent going through their worst nightmare, I felt like I got off a death sentence. This experience changed my whole life and I’m ever so ecstatic and ready to live life to the fullest with our son!
Recovery takes time, as does diagnosis and illnesses, therefore respecting the body and giving it time to heal, and eating for optimal cellular health is the key.
Anthony has reversed about 90% of his symptoms, he is talking, walking, running, singing, dancing, and eating. He is healthy and in high school but most importantly, he is happy and enjoying his life.
