Yolanda Hadid Praises Her Kids Following Her Recovery From Lyme Disease

Yolanda told Vogue magazine the following: “My decade-long journey was an absolute nightmare, but my diagnosis taught me a lot about life. About how much patience and dedication are needed in order to survive. My ‘new normal’ is much slower and more in tune with who I am.”

She then spoke on how her kids were central to her recovery: “If it weren’t for my children, I don’t think I would be here today. It’s so important we learn to listen to people, as many of us are suffering in silence. We should learn not to judge how somebody feels by the way they look on the outside. Looking back, all those difficult times in my life were blessings in disguise.”

So how bad did things get before her recovery? Well, pretty severe as she revealed at the time: “I can’t begin to describe the darkness, the pain and the hell I lived through every day. For some time, it didn’t even feel like living at all. This disease brought me to my knees. Many nights I wished to die and prayed I would just be free of the pain.

[I felt like a] multitasking, single mother-of-three and social butterfly who, slowly started to lose her magical powers.” [My body was weak with] severe fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, difficulty with word retrieval, anxiety, insomnia.” But through it all, she has now come out of the other side.

She continued: “My life is far from perfect, but I try to keep things in balance. I make sure to get enough sleep, eat organic food as much as possible; I practice yoga and meditate every day. I also sleep with a wearable device called the ‘Wave 1’ by FREmedica. It communicates with your cells through LED light for wellness management.

“The combination of all these things has me currently living without most of my chronic symptoms. The emotional and spiritual part of healing is equally as important as the medical diagnosis. My heart is very full. Life has blessed me with an extraordinary partner [boyfriend Joseph Jingoli] who has made me believe in love again.”
