My Instagram account, truly_alive, started in early 2017. I created the profile because I wanted to share the health and nutrition facts that I was learning about as they began changing my life. I have suffered from chronic disease for many years, and I’ve always noticed that when I was at my most healthy-feeling I was also always eating better, more balanced diets, and leading a more active lifestyle. Inspired by some of the citizen scientists I enjoyed on YouTube, like Tim Ferriss, I decided to start implementing the practices that I was learning about to see if I could eliminate my symptoms and reverse my diseases. I wanted to share my journey with other people, and what a journey it has been so far!
