Today marks 5 years! ☺️✨💕

img_4275Just wanted to share something special… That today is Diabetes Light’s 5 year anniversary! 🎉🌟💐

Five years ago I felt led by God to start this blog and share some of the ways I have sought to find health outside of a system that was only prescribing me insulin, thyroid meds and antidepressants — none of which were working well for me, at all! I felt tired, sick and very, very depressed. I was told I would feel this way the rest of my life as there was nothing more they could do.

Thankfully, I didn’t accept this reality. Part of me inside knew there was something more, a greater light and opportunity for wellness. I found a classical homeopath (actually my mom did!), and the rest is history. I have been on my holistic journey to health ever since — eventually implementing many more life-giving holistic therapies, organic whole food nutrition and daily movement which have only supported me in my quest for wellness even more. 🌿🌸

Has it been easy? Oh, heck no! As a woman living with multiple serious health conditions, I still have my fair share of ups and downs, trials and tribulations and many, many setbacks and tears. But I don’t give up! However, I do get quiet sometimes on the blog when things are really hard. Yet, I keep searching and pressing on, trying to feel my best each and every day so I can not only enjoy life to the fullest but share my love and light with the world and each of you. 💗✨

Bless you and thank you for being here. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for believing in me and standing by me even though things have been quieter on the blog with projects being put on hold the last few years as I stepped up my healing. I’m hoping and believing 2017 will bring more of the goodness I have been so excited to share with you for so long. ☺️👏💕

It is an honor to share my life, inspiration, lots of pictures (😬!), fascinating research and personal stories with you.

God bless. 👏✨I hold you in my prayers daily, you are never alone. 🌟💞🌙

Sincerely and with much love always,


ps. I do what I do to help others and make a difference, with an intent to turn my suffering and struggles into light, hope and inspiration for those who may share a similar path.

Closer To Fine

Just returned home from my monthly visit with my homeopath. Sometimes I like to share with you a little about the appointment and today is one of those days. 🙂 I’ve been working with him over 8 years but something at the end of my appointment today peaked my interest. Do you have a provider on your team that looks at your health in it’s entirety? When you work with a true holistic healer, they are not looking to strengthen just one part of you (in Western medicine this is most commonly the physical part), but all parts that make you you!

He mentioned in homeopathy that physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health are all tended to. He said that my intellect is very high as well as my spiritual health (this put a feather in my cap!). But that my emotional health is variable (it is much, much stronger than it used to be, but yes, I get down sometimes… and I can be hard on myself). And that my physical health is low (it is starting to bounce back greater than it has been in years, but there is still a ways to go). He is trying to get each of these to be high and equally balanced. I need to get out of my head (I like to read and think a lot!!) and into my heart!

Each month I feel my health getting stronger and I’m healing in ways that used to hold me back. I am so grateful! But, it’s a long process and sometimes it feels like I’ll never get where I want to be. Thankfully, these delightful appointments always bring back my hope and faith.

On the way home, the Indigo Girls song, “Closer to Fine” came on the radio. A big smile came across my face and as I sang along, I thought it was fitting for what was discussed in my appointment. We each have ways to continue healing and growing, but aren’t we all getting a little bit ‘closer to fine?’ I think so! It’s a lot of work and a journey with many ups and downs, but boy does it feel good to make progress and find the “me” beneath the challenges.

*Hang in there! You are not alone.

In Peace & Light,


Note: Although located in the Twin Cities Minnesota metropolitan area, my homeopath, Jason-Aeric Huenecke, works with patients internationally by phone and Skype. If you’d like to learn more about him and his practice, this is a link to his website. I have no financial interest or gain to make by providing this information, just a strong belief in homeopathy and the quality of care he provides through the many ways I have experienced profound healing.
