After years of living a limited life with chronic illness, Kacie began to see a new chapter unfold. Tune in to hear how her story turned to hope and healing!

Healing Fibromyalgia & Lyme with Kacie Fleming

Chronic illness has this way of sneaking up on you, doesn’t it? Most of us could admit that the signs were there. Maybe they’ve even been there awhile.

But we keep covering the flashing lights or silencing the alarms.

We push through. We get things done in spite of the pain. Or we tell ourselves “this will pass.”

Until we can’t.

Until the symptoms become just enough to start calling some of the shots. Instead of pushing through, we find ourselves weighing out the costs of simple actions. Things we used to do without giving them a second thought.

Kacie’s story is all to relatable. And it begins with an all-too-familiar thought of “something’s just not right.”

From one diagnosis to another, as her list grew and pills were prescribed, she found herself in another world.

The land of chronic illness. A place where resting after a shower, canceling plans, and eating a limited diet was the new norm.

But her story didn’t end there. She pursued other opinions, holistic treatment, and opened her mind to a completely different approach to healing.

Her story is now one that is full of healing and hope for both herself and others – and she’s sharing her journey of how it’s all been unfolding today on the podcast!

She and I have both embarked on the DNRS program, which we’ll also be talking about during our chat. You won’t want to miss it if you’ve been considering learning more about neuroplasticity!

What's it like being diagnosed with Painful Bladder Syndrome (Or IC) when you're much younger than the average patient? What alternative treatments are out there? Join me on the Wellness Crossing to hear Stephanie Mora's story of inspiration and bravery. Click here to listen!

Living with IC & Thinking Outside of the Box for Treatment

You never know what random connections or interactions will ignite an unexpected friendship do ya? I am living proof of that.

Some of the friends in my life have come from meeting in college, my small hometown connections, or church gatherings. But there’s been this growing group of friends that I’ve connected with in the land of the internet. Where many of the bonds have been formed from behind screens, but with much heart.

And today’s podcast guest is one of those beautiful souls.

A couple of years ago I’d entered a beauty giveaway Stephanie Mora was holding on her blog, Stephie Estie. And somehow the stars aligned and I WON! (I’m pretty sure it was the first time I’d won a blog giveaway. And this girl was wide eyed and giddy.)

But anywho, since that giveaway Stephanie and I have become dear friends. Over the last two years we’ve bonded over blogging and navigating our lives with chronic illness. And I’ve love how we encourage each other on our paths to living our best life in spite of symptoms.

Today I’m just so incredibly happy and honored to have her sharing her story on the podcast! She’s talking all about what it’s been like to be one of the young ones living with Interstitial Cystitis, her journey to diagnosis, and the unexpected form of treatment she began earlier this year.

This is the kind of chat I believe reminds us of our own humanity. How unnerving it can be to search for a diagnosis when you’re certain something isn’t quite right in your body. The lengthy process that is learning more about your specific condition. And finding treatment, hope and community to help you along the way.

More about Stephanie…

Stephanie Mora is a southern California girl who fancies herself a Nancy Drew of skincare with a generous dose of compassion sprinkled in.  She was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis at the age of 20, which altered and helped shape her path later in life.  After graduating with a degree in English Literature, she decided to pursue her passion in skincare and became a licensed esthetician.  Fusing her love for both writing and beauty, she created her blog, Stephie Estie, where she writes about makeup, skincare, health and cosmetic chemistry.  

She is also now a proud owner of her own skincare practice in Hermosa Beach.  As someone who deals with chronic illness, Stephanie knows the importance of taking time to decompress from life’s daily demands and strives to bring a calming essence to her clients.  When she’s not working, you’ll find her reading, kickboxing, taking as many dance classes as she can and adding to her ever expanding lipstick collection.
