I’m a certified wellness coach who loves skincare, smoothies, pilates and avocado rolls. But, it wasn’t always this way. I struggled with autoimmune conditions for years, and still do. The journey to healing never ends, but I enjoy every second of it now. I used to look at wellness as a chore. Now, it’s the absolute best part of my life.
My turning point came when I was sitting in my NYC apartment, thinking about the medications I was on. I was still in pain, always bloated, had very frequent headaches and my acne was out of control. In 2016, I was 30 pounds overweight from overeating and just eating like shit – shake shack, processed food, dollar pizza, you name it. In November 2017, I decided to try a plant based diet. The weight came off easily. Within a week, I had no more headaches.
Since then, my health has improved dramatically. I became so interested in healthy eating and holistic wellness that I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I became a certified wellness coach.
What really lights me up is helping others with autoimmune conditions get their life back. You can do everything that you have ever dreamed of. You can find healing. If you told 2016 Caroline that 2019 Caroline would be able to hold a plank for 3 minutes and that she’d be enjoying green smoothies, she would have never believed you. You can shift your life in unimaginable ways.
