About The Blog
Hi, I’m Danielle! My blog is dedicated to sharing with you the knowledge I’ve acquired over the last few years about health and happiness. I want to help this world be a happier, healthier, and more peaceful place. I will be blogging about three main categories: health, happiness, and healthy recipes.
There are two reasons why my blog is called Produce and Positivity. The first reason is because I feel as though Health and Happiness wouldn’t be creative enough, seeing as many other blogs out there have this title. Secondly, I believe that the way to heal yourself is with organic fruits and vegetables (hence “Produce”). My ideas on health are unheard of by many, but I’m living proof that they’re valid. I believe that the key to happiness is to eat organic produce and be positive!

My health journey started in kindergarten, when I had a horrendous strep throat that never seemed to go away. That lead to having my tonsils and adenoids removed at the end of kindergarten, but that wasn’t close to the end of my health issues.
In second grade, I developed chronic sinusitis that resulted in constantly being sick with a runny nose and congested cough. In third grade, pimples started popping up on my face (WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS OLD!) and I found out that I was allergic to dogs and dust. At the end of third grade, I had yet again another surgery; this time on my sinuses. That took care of my sinus problems… for a little while.
Random stomach pains mixed into my pot-of-issues in fifth grade, topping off my raging sinusitis and worsening acne. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I was experiencing symptoms that nobody else my age had even heard of before.
Sixth grade is when I finally said, “Enough!” At the time, my mom had been experimenting with different diets and health suggestions, so, being a loyal daughter that admired her mother more than anyone else in the world, I decided to follow in her healthy footsteps. In February of my sixth grade year, I went gluten-free. Within a week, I noticed drastic changes in the way I was feeling. My stomach pain completely vanished, my mucus became less frequent and less green, and my acne became less oily and more normal-looking for my age. I was on Cloud 9! I had no idea how sick I was until I got healthier.
In seventh grade, extensive research on sinusitis lead me to go dairy-free and grain-free. Once again, I experienced that liberating feeling of having diminished sinus issues and acne. My energy increased and I had a more positive outlook on life. Nothing could stop me!
Then summer rolled around. All of a sudden, I was thrown into an insurmountable world of pain. I was absolutely baffled. For no apparent reason, a ton of new symptoms began showing up in my life. I had a debilitating reduction in energy and hunger. I later found out that I had adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome, hypothyroidism, CVID (common variable immune deficiency), and on top of all of that, I was losing an unhealthy amount of weight… AT AGE 13! I was feeling devastated and hopeless. A natural doctor I was seeing told me that I had to take a bunch of medication and get weekly infusions to combat my CVID. I didn’t want to take medication! I didn’t want to take a step backwards on my health journey! I was depressed with nowhere to turn. I was lost and utterly hopeless.
And that’s where Kathy Hill comes in. Kathy is an emotional energy healer who is a certified Emotion Code Practitioner. My mom found out about her through a pet communicator we were visiting for our German shepherd. I’ll admit, I was a tiny bit skeptical about her at first, being all hopeless and woe-is-me as I was, but after my first appointment with her, I knew my life was changed forever. Kathy lifted me out of my hopeless state and guided me into a rock-hard mental state of pure positivity that I still happily maintain today. After one appointment with her, I had the endless energy of a puppy and the robust strength of an ox. With the simple swing of her pendulum, Kathy helped me to goodbye to my fatigue, hypothyroidism, and CVID forever. For once I was excited to go to softball practice! For once I played outside and went for a run with an abundance of energy that everyone deserves to have! I felt like the same girl I was after my Cloud 9 experiences with diet changes. Kathy’s healing work inspired me to stop eating sugar and nuts. I was a 13-year-old who only ate fruits, vegetables, and meat.
I was feeling absolutely incredible. Once again, there was nothing that could stop me! Then my mom and I read a revolutionary book: Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. This book literally changed my life. My seemingly perfect life took a complete 360 degree turn for the better. At the age of 14, I stopped eating meat for good and started eating all of the fruit I could handle. My fruit fear was gone, and I was on the golden path to truly healing myself.
For almost seven months I’ve been eating only organic fruits and vegetables. I now drink cucumber juice every morning and lemon water to make my water powerfully healthy, and I couldn’t be happier. My acne is nearly gone, my sinusitis is nonexistent, and I have more energy than I’ve ever had before. I’m no longer a victim of my symptoms, but a glowing testimonial that you don’t have to live with your fatigue, allergies, asthma, or any other symptoms that suck the joy out of life. This journey has also lead me to discover my true passion for health and making the world a happier and healthier place. In my posts, I will be teaching you everything that I know about health and happiness. In my next post, I will be sharing some of the most helpful tips that have gotten me this far in my healing journey.
