Happy Friday! ☀️
Sharing my journey is one of the many reasons why I do what I do, and the reason why I started this platform. Not only do I want to raise awareness about the importance of taking care of your mind, body, & spirit through #dentistry🦷 and natural remedies, but I want to inspire other women so they can advocate for their health.
➡️ It’s a known fact that women are under-diagnosed for many common health problems compared to men.
I’m a full time general #dentist. I have two boys, ages 5 and 7, and a husband who is busy working evenings and weekends. When I shared with friends and my doctors that something just did not feel right, they naturally assumed it's because I have a lot on my plate - after all, it’s not easy having the energy to be a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter, and a doctor all at once! 😴
There were days where wearing concealer definitely did not help. I started to look really tired and honestly - my self confidence was taking a huge hit. My work always got 100% of my time and focus, and there was nothing left over at the end of the day.
And then, an act of fate occurred! A friend of mine recommended I take a course on Vitamin D3, as it could be beneficial to my patients. And let me tell you - this course flipped a light switch on inside my head. Could I be deficient in Vitamin D3? I was tested for Vitamin D3 the next week, and sure enough, I was extremely deficient. My amazing naturopath immediately put me on a high dose of Vitamin D3 and B-Complex🤞🏻
After only a short time of taking these supplements, my friends, family, and co-workers knew there was something different about me, but didn’t know what. They thought I was getting expensive facials, botox, and fillers - nope! It was the Vitamin D3! I got retested at 3 months and I”m finally at the right level 🎉
Vitamin D3 not only helps with healthy bones and immunity, but it’s also fantastic for sleep. I finally felt great again, and even I noticed I looked good!!
Now, my practice is growing, I have the energy to do fun activities with my kids, chat with friends, and I love spending time with my husband 😉
Wishing you all good health & healthy smiles 😃🌸
