Ciara Wimby is a wellness advocate, author, adviser, entrepreneur, and founder of LIV You with over 10 years of experience healing herself naturally.
As a youth, while undiagnosed, Ciara suffered high levels of anxiety which attributed to her shyness and fearful attitude in participating in group activities and social functions. In her 20s she was diagnosed with several types Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Inflammatory Bowel Disorder, Ulcerative Colitis, Sever Ulcerative Colitis, and finally Sever Crohn's Disease), an auto immune disorder that cause chronic inflammation in the digestive track. For two years Ciara was unable to work and received Social Security benefit as she was thought of never to be able to return to the workforce because of her disability.
Refusing to accept this life long sentence of isolation, Ciara turned to homeopathic remedies to heal after rejecting the recommendation from doctors to have surgery and have her colon removed. Intuitively knowing she could heal herself, she began with changing her behaviors to return to healthy eating, incorporating a yoga practice, and positive thinking. Ciara returned to work as an accountant, and began to slowly remove herself from all medications. And since 2004 has not taken any medications and continues to manage any of her body's imbalances naturally.
In her path to healing, during her 30s over an eight year span Ciara suffered the loss of her mom to a stroke, a brief 3-year marriage ending in divorce, and the loss of her dad to cancer. To help her cope through these tragedies, Ciara turned to her yoga practice as the foundation of her support. Through her pain more passion was born and she developed the Live Project: Achieve Your Goals and Dreams through the Practice of Yoga, to help herself and others stay focused on living a meaningful and happy life even through life's challenges. Later she renamed the Live Project to LIV Your Truth, LIV's signature foundation course, because she realized she was teaching people to love, value, and inspire themselves as well as others. Ciara knew she had a strong desire to heal herself and others and wanted to give more, this idea then led to the birth of LIV You.
