#19 – Overcoming Chronic Illness From The Inside Out Starting With Real Food


When Macy was a sophomore in high school, she started to get really sick. After months of waiting to get into specialists and having testing done, she was diagnosed with several conditions she had never heard of and could barely pronounce. Macy and her mom began studying her conditions. Together, they decided to use real food to help her fight the illnesses and get better from the inside out.

One of the most difficult conditions is gastroparesis. In her interview, she shares what it is and the steps she’s taken to overcome it. Macy’s love for food, cooking, and helping others inspired her to start her own blog so she could share her passions.
