Angela Blanchard hasn’t had the easiest journey when it comes to health.
After going through tubal pregnancies and several miscarriages, it was one heartbreak after another for her. Falling into a depressive state, Angela developed anxiety, weight gain and a huge hormonal shift brought on by infertility treatments. But it wasn’t all grief for Angela. After an IVF treatment, Angela’s dreams had finally come true — she had a confirmed pregnancy. Due to lack of activity and poor eating habits from fear of hurting her pregnancy, Angela developed gestational diabetes. Her first baby born was born earlier than expected, but healthy as could be.
After news of her second pregnancy, Angela fell back into old patterns and developed gestational diabetes for the second time. It wasn’t until breastfeeding her second son that she knew something was wrong. As feeding became easier, her son’s health started to decline. He developed rashes, mucousy stools, cradle cap, acid reflux, gas, allergies, among several others. With help of a paediatrician, she stopped breastfeeding and switched to formula. Angela also took huge steps towards improving her diet by eliminating trigger foods like grains, gluten, dairy, legumes, sugar, and harmful chemicals — which was what brought her to paleo.

She can’t change her past and can’t reserve any poor health choices, but she is taking huge strides to overcome challenges and maintain her health for years to come. For the first time in years, Angela has finally found a place of happiness, hopefulness and health!
