Hi, I am Rosie Funderburk, founder of Rosie Health Consulting.
Today, more than ever, it is vital to keep our immune system in top working order. Did you know that, in addition to helping our bodies maintain our ideal weight, our immune system is our first line of defense against over 100 autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases?
The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself – if given the essential nutrients to do so. What we eat is key but what we eliminate from our diet is equally important. Eating healthy foods should be a lifestyle, not a diet. With a little understanding of what that looks like, we can be healthier, look years younger, achieve our ideal weight, have a strong immune system and heal much faster.
I started my journey into natural healing over 10 years ago, when I developed a life threatening allergic condition of unknown origins. I sought help from one of the top forensic allergists in the country and he told me it was “probably” an autoimmune disease and prescribed Prednisone. However knowing the side effects of prolonged steroid use can be harmful, I declined. Moreover, I wanted to treat the root cause not just the symptoms. I also later learned that Prednisone would have made my condition much worse.
So, I began to do my own research and discovered I was suffering from a yeast overgrowth in my intestine (my gut). Mold exposure was causing an extreme allergic reaction and my immune system had become really compromised. I learned that great health begins in the gut but most Americans have an imbalance in their gut biology. Since over 80% of our immune system resides in our gut, we need our good bacteria to be in proper balance. I began taking a good probiotic, changed the way I ate, took supplements and natural antifungals. I began to recover right away.
Today I am totally well, look years younger, have great energy, cut my food cravings, achieved my ideal weight and at 70 have been able to keep it off. I feel that great health and a more youthful appearance go hand in hand. Studies report over 100 autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases are linked to poor gut health. The good news is that it can be fixed naturally and without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. So, even if you have no specific health issues, you can look younger, have great energy -both mentally and physically – and be able to fight off almost any sickness because your immune system is working optimally. I would love to help you learn how to take charge of your own health.
