Sarah MacLeod has lived with type 1 diabetes since 2005. Diagnosed as a fifteen year old freshman, Sarah struggled with the daily management of diabetes for many years, often vacillating between steadfast, dutiful diligence and the extreme polarity of ignoring her diabetes altogether. Her experiences with depression, burn out, and diabulimia inspired her to seek out better tools to help navigate recovery and the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of diabetes. As a yoga and meditation teacher, reiki practitioner, and women’s empowerment leader, Sarah hopes to share with others what has helped her to heal, as well as manage the symptoms of her chronic illnesses (type 1 diabetes, Lyme Disease, gastroparesis) and other diabetes complications (neuropathy, retinopathy). This includes cannabis and other holistic lifestyle choices and healing modalities. She is a 2017 graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition who specializes in the mindful, intentional integration of cannabis into her client’s health and wellness routines. Sarah lives just outside of Boston with her partner, Zack, and their two dogs, Nook & Hawkeye.
