I worked overseas for nearly a decade, often, the sole white lady in isolated tropical villages. I worked on education and job projects (namely, distance and eLearning, telework, and micro-entrepreneurship) and I LOVED my work. Then 2008 happened. My organization lost its funding and I switched gears from International Development to Humanitarian Aid. A couple tours of Haiti later (à la the 2010 earthquake and subsequent cholera epidemic), and I had a whopping case of PTSD and a slew of health problems.
Thus began my journey into natural healing and nutritional therapeutics. In an effort to heal myself, I went raw, gluten free, dairy free, momentarily vegan, largely vegetarian, and paleo. The outcome: the understanding that none of these are panaceas. We are complex organisms that are highly individualized — what your body needs will be very different than what your brother’s body needs which will be very different than what Frank in accounting needs. [Because everyone knows that Frank needs a lot of help.]
