a little history
The word ‘archerfriendly’ became a common part of Archer’s vocabulary in 2003 when she was diagnosed with a bladder condition called Interstitial Cystitis. She used this word to describe the restricted diet she had to follow in order to manage the pain. It was much easier and way more fun to say that she ate “archerfriendly”, than to rattle off all the things she couldn’t eat: gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, blah, blah, blah.
Eating archerfriendly gave her a bladder-pain-free life, but it didn’t make her bladder condition go away. She had to work on her spiritual self and change her lifestyle to align with the principles of naturopathic medicine. She is currently healed from interstitial cystitis, and she thanks Jesus for that.
Archer will be a naturopathic doctor very soon! She’ll graduate from Bastyr University’s naturopathic medical school in June 2013 and will be licensed to see patients after she takes the Washington state board exams the following August. She loves God, even though she used to think He hated her. Her creative husband and two gorgeous daughters are daily reminders of God-love she never thought she deserved. She thinks naturopathic medicine is God medicine, and it is all she was made to be and do.
