Amanda's story is a great example of how anybody can rise above life's challenges and come out stronger on the other side. She has had her share of obstacles to overcome.
Four years ago she was diagnosed with Chronic Migraines, a neurological condition that left her homebound, in horrible pain, unable to engage with her family and barely sustaining employment. After many trial and errors with failed treatments from all areas of medicine, she began her own treatment plan that blended Western, Eastern and Holistic Methods in hopes for relief to get her life back on track. And it is working.
