The stresses, challenges, and situations that life brings can oftentimes take a toll on our health. We may dream of being able to feel better one day but may not know where to start. It is possible to put your health back together layer by layer, in a way that works for you and I can show you how. Let's work together to make it happen!

My Story

After several years of trying conventional remedies, I could find no real solution for my Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), or Interstitial Cystitis (IC). As a dietitian, I knew how to manage my symptoms with diet but it just wasn't enough. I still had painful flare-ups that took me out of commission for days. I just could not bear the thought of living that way for the rest of my life. I wanted to get to the root cause of my conditions and give my body what it needed for healing.

Thankfully, my answers came as I trained in Integrative and Functional Nutrition, an advanced practice, leading-edge, evidence-based, systems biology approach to health and healing that addresses root causes of chronic conditions. I learned about functional nutrition lab testing used to identify underlying physiological and biochemical imbalances impacting health. I dove deeper into topics such as the latest science on supplements and nutrigenomics.

My Life-Changing Discovery

I quickly recognized and appreciated the fact that integrative and functional nutrition is not only science; it is also an art. I was thrilled about learning this art and beginning my journey to renewed health. Armed with cutting-edge, life-changing tools, I followed the breadcrumbs of my health history and learned that one of my root causes was Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), which had a root cause on its' own. So with new tools at my disposal, I peeled back the layers, got to the root causes, and addressed my imbalances, using functional labs, food as medicine, lifestyle, and supplements. Read more about my story in my blog.

My journey into the world of Integrative and Functional Nutrition helped me find the answers I needed to successfully address the root cause of my own chronic conditions and significantly impacted my health, well-being, and quality of life.  Best of all, with my advanced training, I am equipped with life-changing, cutting-edge tools to address your chronic conditions by helping you correct core imbalances so that you can get on the path to experiencing your best health!
