About meI am a scientist, a dancer, a fighter. Fighting to find a way to live in this toxic world. Things are looking brighter now. Found a little piece of heaven in the mountains of central Portugal. Fresh air, clean mountain water and amazing friends to help me along. I am now moving to this permaculture farm/spiritual community. Living in a tent and working with the earth. New hope and happiness!

Current health issuesI became ill in 2006 after I started working in a lab as part of my Biochemistry degree. I was working with formaldehyde everyday.
I left the lab as soon as I could, and started working for a PhD in Computational Biochemistry. Still, I was working in the Chemistry department and got worse due to exposure to chemicals from the labs.
I started working from home and got better for a while, but after a few months things started going downhill again, reacting more and more to everyday chemicals.
In 2010 I started having digestive problems and losing weight. I took a blood test to screen for food intolerances and got numerous positives.
In May 2011 I was left homebound with no energy, severe stomach pain from erosive gastritis, nerve pain, muscle cramps and brain fog.

I had forgotten what it felt like not to have pain and weakness in my body everyday, and have a brain that works!9 years ago
