Everything changed after she had a baby…
Instead of enjoying motherhood as the active woman she had been prior pregnancy, life became a nightmare of disability and chronic pain.
In over twelve years, Theresa never dreamt that her health problems could have been related to food sensitivities and autoimmune dysfunction. During that time, her greatest fear was that her daughters would be left motherless before they graduated high school.
Theresa’s hope is that by sharing her story and resource book for living with food allergies and other dietary restrictions that it might give you hope and the tools that she wished had been available for her and her family during those darkest of times.
