It wasn’t long ago that she struggled with autoimmunity, digestive issues, chronic pain, acne, and anxiety. Diagnosed with Primary Ovarian Failure at the age of 20, her doctor explained that she would never have children of her own. Michelle was devastated. She was given a handful of prescriptions but no solutions. After decades of research, trial and error, medical schools, trainings, testing, and prayer – she was finally able to understand what her body was trying to tell her and give it what it needed to overcome these chronic conditions. And on April 5th, 2015, she gave birth to her miracle baby, Paxton Emerson Sands, naturally.
