I am SO passionate about helping YOU take back your health.
I am a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) through the Nutritional Therapy Association where I learned all about the foundational components of our health, how systems can dysfunction as well as why, and how to dig deep to uncovering root causes. I furthered my education and became a certified Restorative Wellness Practitioner (RWP) where I took a deep dive into gut health & hormones, and gained the tools necessary to incorporate functional lab testing into my practice.
I use to be an everyday TacoBell-er, McDonald fry lover and 2 Red Bull’s a day type of gal. That was all fun and games until this highly processed, nutrient-less lifestyle left me extremely sick, my gut a complete WRECK, and on tons of antibiotics. This was my wake up call, to finally listen to my mom, (always preached that food was medicine) and get away from the Standard American Diet (SAD) that I had been on.
Flash forward a decade, I found myself questioning WHY I didn’t feel amazing, I was eating tons of whole foods, even went vegan, tried vegetarian, but still just felt off. I had fatigue, bloating, food sensitivities, acne and hormonal imbalances. I tried all the FAD diets in the book in hopes that I would fall into the right one and just run with it.
Long short short, what my body needed, wasn’t some generalized fad diet. I knew something was off, but no one was able to give me answers. I started what happens to our guts with prolong use of antibiotics, learning about how we all have our own specific needs and what works for you, may not work for me. It wasn’t till I found the NTA, and enrolled to become an FNTP that I learned WHY I felt the way I did and WHY I still felt like crap even though I was eating GREAT.
There are so many things in the world that can cause our systems like digestion and blood sugar regulation to go out of wack and dysfunction. After working to heal my gut from prolonged antibiotic use, I was able to support the organs in my digestive process, with food and supplementation, to optimize my digestion, so I could FINALLY absorb and take in all that amazing food I was eating!
