My name is Cecily Henderson. My story is about endurance….persistence…..and beauty from within.
Everyone has a story…and I would like to share my story with you.
It started when I was 14 years old. My dream was to become a doctor. I was fascinated about how the body works. I wanted to learn how to keep the body healthy and discover the secret to running marathons at 65.
Despite my best efforts….I was not granted the opportunity to complete my medical education. At the age of 26 I dealt with devastating health problems. I found out I had thyroid cancer 4 years later. After 2 intensive surgeries and radiation treatments.
At the age of 33, I was diagnosed with severe Ankylosing Spondylitis….a rare genetic rheumatoid disorder. My symptoms were so painful, I could barely￼ function most days.
I gained 25 pounds due to inactivity, depression, and health issues. I finally found I had allergy and gut problems. I was able to drop the 25 pounds.
In 2014, I was rushed to the Emergency Room because I could not stand up. My legs and body were limp….I was dying. The doctors diagnosed me with Guillain-Barré syndrome. (GBS) is a disorder in which the body’s immune system attacks part of the peripheral nervous system.
6 weeks after I experienced GBS, I was back at the hospital again with the same symptoms. I ended up in a wheel chair for almost a year…..
I decided ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
During this past decade, I dedicated myself to research the best ways to become healthier…..happier….and find beauty within.
I went back to school and became a Certified Health and Wellness Coach. I want to help others who are suffering devastating illnesses, who are looking to make healthier changes in their lives, and those who are discouraged about how they feel inside and out.
Please join me on this discovery of your beautiful health through my Butterfly Method.
