You’re likely here because you want to eliminate pain
— whether it’s in your stomach, head, or muscles.
- Want to resolve diarrhea so you don’t have to always worry about finding a bathroom everywhere you go or suddenly interrupting an important event or activity
- Be constipated and feel irritable and weighed down by incomplete, painful, or non-existing bowel movements
- Be sick of all the bloating and worrying about clothes being too tight and uncomfortable
- Want more energy so you can get up and play with your kids or grandkids, travel, or socialize with your friends
- Wish you knew exactly what to eat to get rid of your gut and other related symptoms, without spending hours and hours online only to get even more overwhelmed and more confused
At the end of the day, you’re looking for a plan that is customized for you and your body. You want to be confident that you’re making the right food choices…instead of being scared of food and the symptoms your meals may cause.
Most importantly, you want to find solutions and answers because your doctors haven’t helped much. And it’s likely their only solution has been one medication after another.
While you may believe that these goals are a pipe dream, let me dispel that myth.
The truth is, with the right program, these are very realistic results.
I can help.
As seen in
I’m a functional and integrative dietitian
My education was in traditional nutrition. After completing an internship training, I worked in a hospital as a clinical dietitian. But, I soon realized I couldn’t make a difference for my patients. People were already too sick. They were being admitted for bariatric surgery, colon resection from inflammatory bowel disease, and foot amputations from uncontrolled diabetes.
They didn’t want to hear about diet—for some of them, they felt it was too late.
So, I decided to start my own practice to help people BEFORE things got so bad.
Simultaneously, I was having bloating and diarrhea (I’m not too shy to talk about bowel movements). My two children were 4 and 2 years old (#3 didn’t show up until later). Despite eating healthy, I was tired all the time, had a hard time getting out of bed, and my muscles hurt. I had constant brain fog and headaches. Plus, I didn’t have the brain or physical power to spend the quality time I imagined I would with my kids. I did what I needed to do for my household and practice to stay afloat, but had no physical or mental energy for anything extra.
At the time, my mentor was testing her patients for food sensitivities, and I wondered if they were part of my problem. I got myself tested and followed her plan. Ten days later, I was a completely new person. Truly.
Thrilled with these results, I decided to learn how to use the food sensitivities program to help my own patients. This was my foot in the door into functional and integrative nutrition.
What I didn’t know back then is that food sensitivities are immune reactions, and that 80% of the immune system is in the gut. This meant that, to help my patients get rid of their symptoms, I had to get really good at understanding and fixing complex gut issues.
That lead me to hours and hours of learning, reading, researching, and experimenting. Today, my practice is completely different than the one I started in 2012.
I see things and process my patients’ struggles differently…
…fatigue, brain fog, muscle and joint pain, skin issues, headaches, and trouble losing weight (all symptoms my patients commonly complain about) — they are all connected to each other and to your gut!
Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of patients get unstuck.
Here’s the truth:
You don’t know how good your body can
feel until you experience it.
