About Lauren


"Hi, I'm Lauren Sonnenberg, and I understand the struggles you've been going through if you have chronic pain or illness, because I once struggled with it myself. I never got a diagnosis back then, but I thought I had lupus or chronic fatigue. I'm glad to be free of it now, and I want to spare you the 'having to figure it all out by yourself', which is the hard path to healing.

Having gone through it, which I talk about in a blogpost called 'Mindbody Malarkey!', I understand how hard it is when people don't 'get it' when you don't feel well, when you feel like there's no one to help you, when you are struggling to find out 'what is wrong with me!'.

I have turned my struggles into my gift. It is now my passion and path in life to help others to move beyond chronic pain and illness, so that they can feel better and love their lives. I look forward to helping you, too."
