Since working with Aila Health, I have really turned a corner since my Lupus diagnosis. After many months, the clouds are finally starting to part. My medications have started working and my platelets are the highest they have been in two years. Since I started coaching with Shannon, I have more energy, I feel stronger, and I am beginning to feel like my old self again!
