• About: Came to Los Angeles, from my home town Chicago, many years ago to work in the entertainment industry. I used to be a very FUN & HIGH ENERGY person, someone you call on to get things done and have a great time doing it. Until I was struck down by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hashimoto's Thyriodtitus and Heavy Metal Poisoning in my organs. Before then I was headed for a solid career in the entertainment industry but my body decided differently. Today I just want to be healthy. All else will follow.
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I am a Actress/Singer that had to leave the Entertainment business about 10 years ago because my body could no longer handle performing 7 shows a week and endless auditions. I had a film in the Sundance Film Festival, was in a Los Angeles, a Hit Musical of the year along with auditions with Johnny Depp for a new film and TV pilots for new shows. Everything came to a hault when my health took a terrible turn for the worst. I thought depression was the cause for my having no energy having just lost 2 dear friends. But my energy never returned and I began dragging myself from place to place unable to make plans because it was so hard to function. I eventually had to leave the Musical and could no longer attend auditions. After numerous doctors saying I was "just fine according to my blood test" and even homeopathic doctors, acupuncturist, Shaman, psychic, astrologers, TM coaches all saying I was "just fine", I was finally diagnosed by a specialist as having Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hashimoto's Disease and high levels of Mental poisoning in my organs about 5 years ago. Since than I have tried every possible thing to help myself, I live in California after all, but, the Vertigo, pain, constant nausea and debilitating exhaustion still remain and keep me bedridden and housebound. My life, as I knew it, is gone. I began coaching actors and producing studio music for others thinking that would be less stressful on my body. But my cliental grew more demanding, in a good way, but my body could no longer keep up. My business has suffered greatly as I can no longer see clients with such unpredictable health. Every time I think I am getting better and agree to take on a new client my health has gone down hill and I had to say, no to them after a few sessions. My friendships have suffered greatly. Not many "good" friends want to hang around with someone who can barely walk, gets confused when speaking and can only sit up for so long. Getting dressed is an effort.... I still dream of walking without effort, running at the UCLA track, which is gorgeous, acting in film again and going on tour with my music. I'm too young for my life to be like this and have too much to give to the world. After seeing Joe Cross and the other gentleman win their fight I am hoping and praying that the 60 day fast, plus a new way of eating, will help me heal and LIVE AGAIN. Blessings and love to you all, Laura

    Juicygirl, after having read your bio I was wondering if you had ever tried Niacin to help treat your low energy levels/depression. I have also heard that mega doses of Vitamin D is very good to increase our mood levels.

    The movie Food Matters, deals with vitamins and the lack of them . I realize that like myself, you and everyone else on Reboot with Joe is doing the raw fruits and vegetables juices to regain our health with fresh sources of Vitamins, micro-nutrients and enzymes.

    The reason I am curious is because my girlfriend struggles with depression and is considering trying Niacin. I know that what you are doing now is the right way to go, since it has worked for me. Great health is one of the most important keys to living a full life.

    All the future success to you.

    The depression is almost nonexistant at the moment. :) Never tried Niacin and don't know much about it. Yes, I am here to heal naturally to would continue working in this way. Thanks for connecting. Good luck to you and your girlfriend. Is she juicing? I know it would help her a great deal. Blessings to you both.

    I have fibro,CFS , thyroid issues, candida overgrowth, possible heavy metal toxicity,chronic active Epstein Barr, tremors, hair loss, anxiety, depression, etc. I am only able to eat apx 10 foods without it causing extreme burning throughout my body. I cannot tolerate gluten, corn, dairy, soy, red meat, nightshades. I have a new functional medicine dr that encouraged myself and my husband to start the 15 day juice fast. We are on day 2. I'm looking for other moms that are experiencing similar issues for support. I just want some quality of life back. I'm a young wife and mom. I'm praying this reboot helps in some way. My issues are a bit complex.
