Family Nurse Practitioner
Certified GAPS ™ Practitioner
I grew up like most Americans–going to the doctor, taking painkillers when I needed them, eating anything sweet, and completely unaware of any link between the choices I was making and the way I was feeling.
And I did not feel good!
I had frequent sinus problems, seasonal allergies, headaches and migraines, depression, fatigue, anxiety, rage, stomach upset, irritable bowels, and more!
Many of these problems started before I was ten, and by the time I was 18, I was undergoing medical tests, trialing migraine medications, and struggling with suicidal thoughts. But I was not seeing any progress–things were only getting worse!
For unrelated reasons, I removed dairy from my diet. Suddenly, the frequency of my migraines reduced by half! This was the first connection I made between my lifestyle choices and how I felt. My journey started there, and I have been on that exciting road of learning ever since.
I want to share what I have learned and experienced with others!
I love empowering people to achieve better health,
by learning to listen to their body
and understand the connection between their choices
and how they feel.
I am an Educator
I love to teach, and I always find myself sharing information in whatever setting I am in. I do this through writing, video education, blogging, live speaking engagements, hands-on classes, individual consults, and more.
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner
I learned about the human body and how it works from a Western medicine perspective. From this training I have a deep understanding of how the body works and how things may effect it.
I am a Certified GAPS Practitioner
I believe that nutrition is the fundamental element to health. The Gut and Psychology Syndrome™ (GAPS) Nutritional Healing Protocol, is an efficient way to heal a “leaky gut,” which is often the reason behind malnutrition and toxicity in people today.
I am a Wellness Advocate
