Due to several years of being misdiagnosed, Kristy went from completing a Half Ironman to struggling to walk just a few steps. Although she reported being exposed to several ticks on a solo 300km hike, the connection was not made, resulting in both her physical and mental condition to deteriorate significantly. It wasn’t until then it was determined she would have to live with Chronic Lyme for the remainder of her life.
Not willing to accept a life in bed, she sought out medical treatment around the continent. Although much health and rehabilitation was discovered many issues still remained, such as chronic fatigue. Determined to not accept this as her fate, Kristy continued to reproach healing modalities and started to research all sources of energy within and outside of the body in an effort to understand how to effectively use, create and transmute energy in her life.
She quickly realized that healing was not just about fitness, nutrition and medicine. Her ability to heal mentally and emotionally were keys to discovering a new vitality for life, endless energy and true purpose. Understanding how energy works in our bodies, how our mind and body are connected and the role energy plays around us are critical to living our best life. Her background, education, experience and research led her to a complete understanding of how we are meant to thrive.
