The Epimoni, LLC - Holistic Health and Wellness Approach

I am Dawn M. Riess

Founder and Owner of Epimoni, LLC - Holistic Health and Wellness, located in Cary, IL.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when I was 40 years old. I was constantly exhausted. I had pain all over my body, and I couldn't sleep. I had brain fog and depression, and I felt like I was going crazy. The rheumatologist told me that there was no cure for fibromyalgia. He gave me some medication to help with the pain and sleep disorder, but it didn't really help. I was so frustrated and afraid of living the rest of my life in constant misery.

In 2019 my mother was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, and I was determined to learn all I could about holistic approaches to beating and preventing breast cancer. That is when I came across holistic nutrition. Fascinated by how diet and lifestyle could contribute to breast cancer and many other chronic conditions, I decided to study further and become an AFPA Certified Holistic Nutritionist.

I began making some dietary changes because of what I was learning, and all the while it didn’t even occur to me that my Fibromyalgia symptoms were disappearing. I started to feel better almost immediately. The pain started to subside, and I was able to sleep better. I was so focused on learning how to help my mom beat her disease that I did not even realize the profound changes going on in my own health until I did! I felt like I had hope for the future. I continued to make changes to my diet and lifestyle, and I eventually went into full remission from Fibromyalgia. I am now a NASM-CPT, AFPA Certified Holistic nutritionist, and Energy Healer. I help other people to heal from Fibromyalgia and other chronic illnesses. Read more about my journey with Fibromyalgia, from diagnosis to symptom-free in my new book, link is located below.

I am so grateful for my journey. It has taught me so much about myself and about life. I am now living a happy and healthy life. I am relaxed and at peace. I am so grateful for the opportunity to help others heal.

If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, I encourage you to contact me for a discovery session to see if I can help you. There is hope for you. You can heal and live a happy and healthy life.
