Shortly after, I began incorporating supplements and CBD and roughly eight weeks after that one meeting with the naturopath, my Psoriasis started to go away and I lost 30 lbs. My career began in Florida and took me to Toronto, California and eventually Colorado only to end up where it all began, back with my family in Toronto.
