I’ve been fighting for my health before birth. The moment my mother pushed me out, my life long battle for health became very dramatic. I was immediately rushed to NICU while my mother a woman in a foreign land and did not speak the language. At the same while she’s dealing with this, her husband was thousands of miles away getting documents for her son to come to America. After that I was what you call a “lemon” or a “fixer upper” everything that could go wrong went wrong. I spent years in and out of doctors office and hospitals, but in all fairness a few of those hospital visits were me being clumsily because clearly me being sick wasn’t enough, I also had to be completely unbalance.

I stared slowing pills at the age of 4 because the syrup form weren’t strong enough. By the time I was 14 I had chronic bronchitis, I was in recovery mode from a seizure and a skin irritant that I later found out was psoriasis. At the age of 14 I was literally tired of being sick and tired. I have taken more drugs that my parents and I was drained. I felt like a lab rat being tested for all the new drugs on the market. One day I was in the kitchen with my dad cutting in half a pill that I was taking daily at the time for my bronchitis because that what my doctor advise me to do because he was worried that the pill would get stuck because that pill was generally for adults. I looked at the pill cut in half and popped one half in drank some water and popped in the other one. Then I went in my room to grab all my other drugs, by the time all those drugs finally kicked in I was already too tired to do anything else. I had less energy than my parents and not to mention I wasn’t getting any better. So the next day I quit all the drugs, I decided that be a drugged up teen on prescriptions drugs wasn’t a life I wanted to live!

You can imagine my parents response to this wasn’t exactly loving, instead I was told by both my parents that I would die if I stop. But that was a risk I was willing to take. I knew back then that a life living on daily drugs would kill me and that wasn’t the way I wanted to die. At the age of 14 I knew that I didn’t want to die from the drugs given to me to save me!

Everyday after that my parents told me I was cheating death but to me I was discovering LIFE, I was finally living on my terms. I was ready to die if that meant not taking any drugs. At that time I had no idea that I was on to something that would be jumpstart my life because to me all I wanted was to feel good and healthy.

Health to me is more than looking good, I practice Holistic Health by balancing my physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. To be the best version of yourself you have to follow your heart! THE HEART IN YOU is speaking to you, what is is saying to you? For over a decade I fought with my family and doctors because my hearth knew something that my mind didn’t. If you want something bad enough you will fight for it. I wanted nothing but health something I’ve never experience but i knew it was better that what I was dealing with. 
I started The Heart In You to help other people see the art and beauty in their lives. We are taught everything else in school, but no one teaches us how to be happy healthy humans!
