Leah is the author of UNDOING HASHIMOTO'S and founder of the Claim Your Health, Claim Your Life movement.
A few years ago I hit a wall. I walked out of a doctors appointment wondering how I had managed to get here. I had always been health conscious, ate well, had a yoga studio and a strong background in the spa industry and self care. Now I was exhausted, in physical pain and not feeling well. The doctor had diagnosed me with a virus called CMV and Hashimotos Autoimmune disease. This began my journey to reclaim my health and in doing so to reflect upon my life and the direction I wanted it to take. For too long I had allowed my life to be just a response to the next most pressing thing with very little idea about what direction I wanted it to go in. I stopped taking care of everyone else first and began to take care of myself. I applied the principles of wellness I knew and became an advocate for myself. As a result I started to become clear on my passion in life - to coach others through the process of reclaiming their health. The body keeps track of and responds to our life- it is our unwritten diary - the path to wellness begins with embracing the bodies messages. I am a wife and mother to two amazing girls.
