Jordan's Story: Recovering from an Eating Disorder & Postpartum Depression

Jordan’s story speaks to the heart of much of our suffering.

We seek ways to numb the pain and look for “band-aid” solutions outside of ourselves to fix us and make us whole, only to come up empty.

What started off with a prescription for Zoloft for an eating disorder as a child, eventually led to the doubling of her medication after a diagnosis of postpartum depression following the birth of her second child.

“I was also going through a lot of family mom and I no longer was just, for me, it was a lot to deal with.”

“Even though I said ok, let me just get through this dark hole that I feel like I’m in every day...something felt wrong.”

It was then that Jordan saw an article featuring a friend of hers and our Vital Mind Reset program, and decided to reach out.

Over the course of the next few weeks, Jordan got a chance to go inward and say "yes" to herself, to honor her own feelings, body, and needs. That’s when she discovered that healing is an inside job.

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made. I know that I am the greatest healer for myself. And I will take care of myself from this day on.”

“I’m just so truly grateful to have had this opportunity, and to be able to share this journey with others, and I hope they’ll take this journey as well.”

“Because you deserve it. We all do.”
