Highlights from today's episode include:

Julie Michelson (03:52):

I was first diagnosed, I went to the top rheumatology facility where I live. And I literally was told by more than one doctor we're so sorry, we'll keep you, you know, you're so young, we'll keep you as comfortable as we can for as long as we can.


Julie Michelson (04:14):

It never occurred to me that, like, there was any other option other than to expect decline. And so as a little preface to this story, you know, at the time my daughter came to me, I was in my mid forties and my father had passed away at age 54. And he was seemingly healthy until he left us. So I really did not believe, and I hadn't voiced it to anybody, but I didn't believe I would live to see 50. So it was kind of a hail Mary, if you will. I won't say that I believed I could heal when I started to try these different things. But I had never met anybody that gave me any kind of alternative perspective because I was so entrenched in the Western medicine world that it was just an accepted thing.


Julie Michelson (07:49):

It really was a very gradual healing, you know, I would fix one thing and I'd feel a little bit better and I'd fix another and I'd feel a little bit better. So it was, it was gradual, but I promised I would do everything I could and included everything I could, So I just kept going.
