It all started when…
My personal health journey started in 2013. Weight gain, anxiety, mood swings, poor sleep, etc. had me desperate to find a better way of living. I visited my doctor to ask about getting something for the anxiety…not realizing that meant an antidepressant! I wasn't ready to sign on to a lifetime on antidepressants and the side affects that come with them, so I decided to find a more natural route. It took a while to finally find my wonderful functional doctor. After going over all my symptoms and running labs she told me I had adrenal fatigue (stage 3), leaky gut and reactive hypoglycemia. She put me on a supplemental protocol, I cleaned up my diet and in about 9 months I was starting to feel like my old self again! The weight started coming off, the anxiety was a distant memory and the discomfort and bloating after ever meal improved. I fell in love with the whole process of getting to the CAUSE and not just treating the symptoms…I found myself being drawn to wanting to help other women who felt the way I did, to let them know they weren’t alone. I wanted to tell them I knew exactly how they felt, that there was light at the end of the tunnel…it became, a PASSION.
In December 2018 I became a certified health & wellness coach. I absolutely LOVE being a health and wellness coach…I have so many women who have been cutting calories, depriving themselves and killing it in the gym doing countless hours of cardio with little to no results. I love educating women that they CAN eat and that food is not the devil!!
While I love being a health & wellness coach, I was wanting to do more to help my clients with hormonal issues, gut issues, etc., but I wasn’t exactly sure how to do that. I knew what had worked for me, but that didn’t necessarily mean it would work for them, or that it was the right thing for them. I decided I wanted to add MORE to my health and wellness coach arsenal…enter becoming an Integrative Health Practitioner!
I am honored and look forward to working with you on your health and wellness journey.
