Katherine Housh, RN, BSNA holistic nurse coach dedicated to helping you budget your energy and become your own best self-caregiver to overcome chronic illness and fatigue.
How I First Got Sick
I am a patient with autoimmune disease.
I came from a family of health-conscious medical professionals and was rarely sick as a child, so it was a surprise when I was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune disease as a teenager.
Like most patients, I thought that doctors were supposed to have all the answers.
My symptoms affected every part of my life: My plans for college and a career, my relationships with friends and family, and my feelings of self-esteem. I was the girl who liked to help others, but I didn’t know how to help myself.
With my parents’ support, I decided to take some time off to learn how to manage my symptoms. The result was a five-year journey of countless medications, multiple hospitalizations, and the threat of surgery.
I knew there had to be a better way and made major lifestyle changes.
With the support of a holistic healthcare provider, I finally learned how to get to the root causes of my pain, fatigue, and digestive symptoms to heal. This is the process of nursing yourself back to heath that I share with my clients today.
What My Life Looks Like Today
I am a registered nurse and health coach.
Sadly, many practitioners today are pressed for time and often leave their clients struggling to implement their expert suggestions. I practice what I preach to show you how to slow down, budget your energy, eat nourishing foods, move your body, and make time for the more important things.
I help you listen to your body’s signals on a deeper level, which is the real key to healing.
Now I have a happy marriage and the energy to spend time with friends, as a hospice nurse, and as a volunteer educator in my community. I love to be in nature, working in my garden, or cooking in the kitchen. In my free time, I binge watch Netflix, read textbooks, and paint succulents. I wake up every morning excited to start the day and look forward to connecting with women such as yourself who are ready to change their lives!
