How I went from a disempowered "tired of being tired" patient to Naturopathic Doctor helping 100s of clients live their best life. 

Before there was a blog. Before the clinical practice. Before the online workshops…there was a "tired of being tired" girl desperate to feel better.

I found myself in my doctor's office. I wanted to turn my health around but I didn't know how. 

I was told everything is "fine."

What was I missing?

...I quickly realized:

"I need to figure this out for myself"

I searched for another solution.

When I learned about Naturopathic Medicine, there was no turning back.

The focus on prevention made so much sense to me.

I always had a "sensitive stomach," but never thought much of it until it kept getting worse and worse.

I had no idea what IBS was at the time and that this could be part of why I had low iron and was tired all the time. 

Naturopathic Med School, Functional Medicine Training & 100s of Clinic Hours Later…

 

I started to see lots of patients that had accepted that gas and bloating was just part of daily life, despite how embarrassing and uncomfortable it felt. 

So I started to investigate and uncover underlying causes of chronic gut issues.

When I addressed the deeper imbalances, that's when my patients saw momentum.

I began to develop a gut health framework for eliminating stomach pain, navigating diet and food sensitivities, and reversing gut inflammation.

Treating the body as a whole and supporting multiple systems together was part of the "secret sauce."  

I created a step-by-step framework for healing gut inflammation.

I discovered how my gut, my hormones and my mood were all connected.

This was going to be the foundation to long-term wellness. So I doubled down and learned how to heal naturally, with the whole body in mind. I learned:

  • How to use food to heal leaky gut. 
  • How to change my lifestyle habits to regulate my hormones.
  • How to balance my mood with herbs and supplements.

By moving away from “treat the symptom” and into “treat the cause,” even the newbie can bypass overwhelm and frustration.
