Kim had been an enthusiastic college student, creative, athletic and energetic. That changed in her junior year of college. After the removal of her four wisdom teeth, Kim began to suffer from unexplained health problems: recurring pneumonia, debilitating fatigue, brain fog, unexplained rashes and swollen lymph nodes that would not go away. Over the next thirty years her doctors would diagnose Kim with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Epstein-Barr virus and even lymphoma, but they did not really know.
Kim shares her thirty-year journey to regain her health and vitality. Kim’s belief in her body’s ability to heal led her to work with a remarkable biological dentist. It was with the help of this controversial approach to dentistry that Kim’s body could finally heal, restoring her to full health. Her revealing and intimate story portrays the little understood and overlooked importance that the mouth plays in over-all health and well-being. At The Root is Kim’s story of the necessity to trust and believe in yourself. She reminds us of the importance of taking responsibility for our health as well as managing our own lives.
"Kimberly shares her own inspiring story of the body’s ability to heal itself, and how self-love and perseverance helped her to reclaim her health and her life. At The Root will inspire anyone to be a powerful advocate for their own healing."
