Kat's Health Issues
Her "enough is enough" moment happened eight years ago as a 20-year old sophomore in college. Kat had been dealing with a myriad of mystery symptoms for six years at that point, and no doctor could give her answers.
"I was constantly getting drop-kicked with bronchitis," she said. "My digestion was a disaster. My skin would randomly erupt in strange, itchy, white patches, and cystic acne. And I could get 12 hours of shut-eye and still fall asleep sitting up in a restaurant while eating dinner with my boyfriend's family."
Kat found a holistic MD who confirmed her self-diagnosis of something called Candida albicans, which is a pathogenic yeast that can wreak havoc on your gut and your entire body. She said she was also diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease of the thyroid.
