My name is Julie and I have been severely ill since Feb 2015. After being let down so many times by modern medicine and conventional doctors, I decided to heal myself naturally with plants, healthy food, and lots of rest, nurturing and meditations.
I spent the last 4 years my head buried in books and websites using the part of my brain that was still functioning to try and understand how I could save myself.
That’s all I had left. That was my best shot.
I had tried everything and nobody knew how to help me. My legs weren’t carrying me anymore so I couldn’t leave my apartment for 2 years. I had so many questions and no one to answer them. I had only one obsession, it was to heal and feel even better than i’d ever felt before.
I had all these questions… what’s the best diet? Will this make me sick? What protocol do I follow to really get better? What is neuroplasticity? How do I overcome the pain and the crippling fears? How do I deal with loved ones who don’t understand my journey?
I never meant to create a healing platform, but back at my worst, when I could barely breathe at night and was wondering if I would still be alive in the morning, I started sharing my journey on instagram at @julieshealing.
Because I needed to feel connected to something, to have a purpose and to talk about it to keep my sanity and to create some sort of connection with the few people across the globe who were using the same hashtags at that moment.
Months passed and as I continued sharing my reality, my wins and my struggles, I realized that this was helping others trying to heal similar conditions as mine. It’s wasn’t about me anymore, it was about a community fighting an invisible demon while having so much hope and faith that this fight was going to lead to something spectacular. To fully grown beautiful humans vibrant of life and vitality, ready to share the gift of health with others and make the earth a better place.
I know this may sounds cheesy to some people… if you think that maybe you’ve never been ill. There is something worse than pain and suffering… it’s being let down by others. Feeling so lonely because no one else understands. Being judged while you’re down and sick.
Finding gratitude in those moments requires the strength of a hundred men, strength that often we’re just too weak to have at that moment.
This blog is for you.
For the ones struggling in silence, lonely, and who are looking for answers that doctors can’t give them. I wish I had this information when I first started. But at the same time.. I don’t regret anything because it led me to where I am today.
Today (June 2019) I can proudly say that I am 50% healed. I went from 1% to 50% in 1,5 years. It’s been incredible. I met wonderful people online and I realized that there are thousands of young people like me trying to heal on their own, because they don’t have any other choice that trying anything and everything until they finally get better.
Update: today (March 2021): I am 70% healed. It’s been such an amazing recovery journey – and I’m heading towards the 100%.
This blog will be an extension of the info I share on my instagram, but more in depth. The search bar will also make it easier for you to navigate and find the specific topics you’re looking for. I’ll also link the products I find are helping me immensely, in case they can help you too.
Welcome and thank you for being here.
Are you ready to heal with me? :
