🔶 Dani says; " I grew up in complete chaos. My grandfather had died by suicide. My mother attempted suicide multiple times. I had chronic diarrhea from all the stress in my house and I had two abusive stepfathers. I had my very first colonoscopy at age 18. And then 15 years later, I was still struggling with IBS.
I was in a very difficult marriage. I too had decided to die by suicide that morning in Paducah, Kentucky and made the decision that's what I was going to do, and there was nothing anyone could do.
🔶 And then all of a sudden my kids came in the room and it was all God. And they were mama, mama what's for breakfast. My husband was at work and I looked at them immediately and I knew I'm not going to, there's no way I can leave those kids with him. And I got up, I fed the children food, and the rest is history."
Dani Williamson is now a Family Nurse Practitioner with a thriving functional medicine practice called "Integrative Family Medicine" located in Franklin, Tennessee. Dani is living, walking, breathing proof that there is a vibrant life after a “lifelong” diagnosis is handed down to you. For decades, Dani suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Lupus and on and off depression.
🔶 It wasn’t until after graduating from Vanderbilt and working in a naturally minded medical practice that a medical professional asked her a life-changing question: “Dani, what are you eating? Don’t you know that your diet controls your disease?”
From that moment on, she has been on a tireless pursuit to transform her patient’s lives through her six rules: eat well, sleep well, move well, poop well, de-stress well, and commune well.
