My Story: From struggling with poor health to helping others transform their lives...
I’ve had health problems since I was a young child. Frequent infections, stomach pains and digestive problems were just a part of life growing up.
As I got older, I developed thyroid disease which went undiagnosed and untreated for many years.
The chronic stress of 6 years of medical education caused my adrenal health and progesterone levels to plummet and my thyroid disease to spiral out of control.
I know what it feels like when your body turns on you. I know what it’s like to wake up in the morning and feel like giving up. I’ve been there.
But I’m here to tell you that YES, you can turn things around. I’ve done it myself. The path is not always easy, but it is the most REWARDING work you can do in your life!
I’ve been on a personal and professional journey of research and discovery about the best ways to treat gut health, thyroid disease and other hormonal concerns.
I have experimented with hundreds of treatments, including diets, supplements, exercises, medications, mind-body techniques and lifestyle interventions. I have used these tools on myself and my clients.
There are some universal truths when it comes to recovering from chronic disease. But I've also discovered that every person needs a plan personalized for their individual health story, their genetic profile, and biochemistry. There are no one-size-fits-all medications, diets, supplements, or exercise plans.
I use extensive lab testing in my practice but I look past the numbers at your symptoms and individual health situation.... you are NOT a number! Lab ranges are based on averages from the general population and they do not always represent optimal health.
I love my job because I get to spend quality time with my patients, listening to their health story and working with them to create a treatment plan that is personalized for their individual needs.
My ultimate reward is seeing my clients come back to life, and feeling healthier and more energetic with each visit. And they are thrilled to be able to live the healthy life of their dreams!
