Juanita grew up with PTSD since childhood, experienced chronic pain throughout her adult life due to a vehicle accident, multiple sclerosis and arthritis, and she was diagnosed with MS in 2013. She almost ended up on disability twice (once due to the MS and the second time due to the MS meds). She also struggled with reading comprehension problems, social relational issues and communication problems due to her PTSD, anxiety and depression. She overcame her issues one at a time using art therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, complementary & alternative medicine, and lifestyle medicine. Juanita is off all medications now and only uses herbal and whole-food supplements. She runs twice a week, training for a 10k and half marathon. She continues to practice and teach yoga, works a full-time job while helping people through her health coaching business and online health courses, and goes hiking and kayaking on the weekends. She reduced her chronic pain and MS symptoms by 90%, regaining her quality of life. Juanita also overcame her learning issues and is currently getting her second Masters degree in Military Psychology.
