Amy Tyre was raised in Boston and had a typical childhood. The first notice of a major shift for her happened when she moved to Arizona. This change forced her to realize that she needed to rely more on her immediate family after relying on her parents while living in Boston. However, the biggest moment for her was getting sick. She had struggled with symptoms of IBS since middle school but she did not realize this until much later. To try to solve this problem, she sought out the use of traditional medicine, only to find that this approach only made things worse. She then looked into alternative medicines.

After being told by a medical intuitive that the main cause of the IBS issue was not allowing her emotions to surface, she did yoga and was able to get her emotions to surface, only to find that she did not know what to do with them. She worked with therapists to help her sort out what these emotions were. She was told by a gestalt therapist to just allow for those emotions to surface. This approach allowed her to not only get a sense of what her emotions were but also start to work through those emotions.

During her recovery period, she learned that pain is not comparative. The pain that one person feels might be very different for someone else. This helped her to realize that during all of the changes that she encountered After allowing her emotions to surface, she realized that she was miserable even though she had everything that one could want from a material standpoint. She realized that something was wrong but was unable to figure it out until much later.

As she was growing and learning about her emotions, she realized that she wanted to contribute to the rise of alternative medicine practitioners as that was something that she had success with during her journey. She decided to do this by creating Alternative Medicine Connection, a site for posting experiences with alternative forms of medicine.  Now, she works in yoga, something she has studied for over 20 years and is a mentor and coach, hoping to give back what she has learned through her own experiences to help others.
