5 years ago when I became a nurse, I never imagined ever…..”not practicing.” My dream job was taking care of others! I started to struggle in my journey when my own personal convictions about health and wellness interfered with my role as a nurse. I LOVE taking care of patients. I LOVED putting in Foleys (like, LOVED it!). I loved starting IV’s. And I loved every second of physical care I was able to give my patients. Whether it was walking in the hallway or straight up wiping their butts, I LOVED it! I got fancy awards. I was always recognized by my patients, and in fact, I was greatly respected by my peers. But my heart began to hurt so deeply on a daily basis when I learned more about how our healthcare system/business functions and how so much of what we do is treating symptoms of DEEPER issues, and ignoring the root causes. I began to lose my passion for traditional bedside nursing when I began to learn more about how CLEAN LIVING AND NUTRITION truly changes lives.
