Hi! Welcome to Hungry Gopher
I am Sun. I am a skin renewal specialist who helps individuals who suffer from chronic skin conditions transform their skin to look clear and beautiful in 30 days.
Hungry Gopher came to life when I came into a jackpot of turning points in my life, aka a mid-life crisis.
In the year 2013, I came into the perfect storm of events that one would call a midlife crisis.
The industry I had built my career in over the past 10 years in Los Angeles literally melted down.
I also hit 40 and I was feeling old. I was unsure as to where my future might lie.
Most of my close friends moved out of the city, so my social life shrank.
Mr. Lunch and I finally came to a decision to try to have a baby, but alas nature didn’t cooperate.
Alos, my chronic skin allergy was out of control.
Then, I felt trapped and depressed. At first, I waited for things to happen. Then one day I realized that I was done “waiting”. I was ready to take action to get what I wanted in my life, to LIVE.
I am introverted by nature. Sometimes, I just want to stay down in my hole and play it safe. But, when curiosity comes over me, I pop out of the hole with a strong urge to grow and learn about the world around me.
If you are watching this, I know the Gopher is in you, too.
In the midst of growing Hungry Gopher, I caught a big break, or rather I received a wake-up call.
I’ve suffered from numerous allergies and a chronic skin condition, called Seborrheic dermatitis (AKA Seborrheic eczema) since I was a little kid. It’s called 지루성 피부염 in Korean. For over three decades I used steroidal medicine to alleviate the symptoms.
Last year, in August of 2015, I learned that I could treat the cause, not the symptoms by changing my lifestyle.
By no other force than altering my diet and modifying small things in my life I was able to alleviate my chronic symptoms.
For the first time in my life, in over 3 decades, I have been free of taking steroidal medicine.
So it’s your turn. I’ll share the knowledge and experience that I’ve learned through my research, trial, and errors.
Your body has an incredible healing power inside it. IF and only IF you provide it with the right environment and the right nutrition. Work with your body and mind, not against it.
WHY “HUNGRY GOPHER”?
Mr. Lunch, the man behind the camera, who is also my best friend and my life partner mostly calls me by nicknames. In the summer of 2013, he started calling me “Gopher”. I didn’t think much of it back then. Then one day, I went hiking and saw a gopher popping out of the hole, and I thought to myself, “that gopher is just like me!”. I can be introverted, staying down in my hole for awhile but then when the curiosity (some might say “hunger”) comes over me, I pop out of the hole with a strong urge to grow and learn about the world around me. Thus, Hungry Gopher became my symbol of unstoppable curiosity. My inner yearning to learn about the world around me one bite at a time.
WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN HUNGRY GOPHER?
If your life is filled with rashes, hives and itchy skin. You are not alone. I understand how you feel.
I had suffered from chronic skin conditions since I was an infant (per my Mom).
On a sunny spring day in 1985, Seoul, South Korea, I scratched my scalp with a sharp pencil until it bled. I was thirteen, 1st year in middle school. My scalp was so red, raw and incredibly itchy that I couldn’t stop scratching it.
When I came home, my mother took me to a doctor. I was prescribed a topical steroid. It was the beginning of the 30-year prolonged use of the steroids until I reached my midlife crisis.
When I became 40 years old, my life faced turmoil. The company I worked for as an artist went bankrupt. My husband and I tried to start a family, but I couldn’t get pregnant. My seborrheic eczema was out of control. My scalp and my face were so red, raw and itchy. Between the rash on my face and insomnia, I was desperate to find a solution.
One thing I intuitively knew was that I had to change my course. I also believed that there must be another way to solve my health challenges. After all, I had used steroid medicine that was prescribed by my medical doctors for 30 years to relieve my chronic skin condition. Even though the medicine helped my symptoms in the short term, I developed ever more symptoms and my health was declining slowly but surely.
Luckily, I launched The Hungry Gopher Cooking Show in 2014 as an endeavor to change my career. Naturally, I spent a lot of time, doing research about healthy eating to provide quality content for The Hungry Gopher Cooking Show.
Eventually, my research led me to the newer field of Functional Medicine, it opened my eyes to the possibility that I could reverse my symptoms by simply changing my diet and lifestyle.
So I did.
As of today, It’s been almost 3 years since I became medicine free, including the steroid medicine I had relied on for 30 years since I was thirteen. For me, seeing a scalp and a face that are not red and raw without the steroid medicine is a miracle in itself. I did not even know this is possible.
My journey of recovering my health and reversing my symptoms has taught me many lessons. One of which is what I know could be only a part of the picture that can lead me in a wrong direction
Also, conventional wisdom and beliefs might be outdated and they can harm us rather than help us.
