At 37 years old, I was frustrated and mysteriously sick. I recorded my symptoms, sat in medical offices, explained, and cried. My doctors couldn’t fix me. A dietitian didn’t understand me. And my family and friends were overwhelmed by me.
With no answers, I went against everything I’d known about medicine and met with a holistic practitioner. Functional testing showed I wasn't absorbing nutrients, and an elimination diet pointed to gluten, which was damaging my gut and affecting my immune system.
Changing my diet changed the course of my entire life. I was energetic, clear headed, and happy for the first time. I became fascinated by my recovery and discovery, longing to understand “why” and “how” I went from so broken to feeling like a whole person.
Food was a huge part of the puzzle for my health, but as I dove into work with my clients, I learned it's never "just one thing. "
I became curious about stress and it's role in digestive health, and my focus turned to the brain, gut, and immune connection - where I now lay the foundations for my clients. The results are exponential.
