PERSONAL STRUGGLES

Ms. Romy Pritchard growing up experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's).  As an adult she struggled with PTSD, depression, alcohol use, obesity, and suicide idealization.  In 2016 Romy was diagnosed with a later stage breast cancer. In 2018 she aspirated after a suicide attempt. During the medical intubation she was infected with a hospital antibiotic resistant bacterium that quickly infected her lungs and then blood. Against all odds she woke up from a two-week coma and has continued to heal remarkably.

In 2019 doctors discovered a large mass in her right lung and for the most part assumed it was metastatic breast cancer. The mass was 11.5 cm and demonstrated high FDG uptake. After this discovery she radically changed her diet to whole food plant based. She also began daily intermitted fasting (16 hrs.), monthly 36 hr. fasting, a meditation practice and other holistic changes. A December 2020 PET/CT scan reveals that the mass has shrunk, is only 1.5 cm, and is now demonstrating reduce FDG uptake!

It’s amazing how much healing our bodies can do naturally with holistic, supportive interventions! If we believe that we are the diagnosis our doctors tell us—we limit ourselves to that experience. Knowing that our bodies are capable of incredible healing from seemingly insurmountable odds is powerful medicine. What limiting belief do you want to release about your body?

STYLE OF COACHING

Ms. Pritchard's style of coaching is innovative and adaptive.  She incorporates experiential learning by inviting different, small, simple and consistent changes.  Romy incorporates different learning modalities such as breath work, Emotional Freedom Technique, Emotional Brain Training, art work, and guided meditation. These techniques are useful in getting unstuck, building resources, creating new neural pathways and focus, releasing stagnant energy and freeing up energy for who you want to be and what you want to be experiencing.
