Certified Functional Medicine Coach & Certified Health and Wellness Coach
I identify the root cause of autoimmune disease states in Pets and People, to return their health and vibrancy!
I am a Educator by trade, Dean of Allied Health schools turned Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and Certified Health and Wellness Coach! I was also a professional horseback ride for over 25+ years and have extensive knowledge of health and wellness for pets from previous training as a Veterinary Technician, and restoring health to my own dogs and horses, as well as other from my functional training!
My own health issues inspired me or shall I say, prompted me to read and learn from every expert in functional medicine to reverse a sudden histamine issue I was having and the regular doctor I was seeing told me I was fine since all the bloodwork he could do came back normal.
I was unable to run meetings and I didn’t have enough air to talk, drive my car as I was worried I would pass out from massive bouts of histamine etc., so I definitely knew that was not normal, so it wasn’t until I found functional medicine that I started to heal myself and have learned the true health is wealth as the saying goes and love to help my clients return to true health and wellness so they can reengage in life and enjoy it to the fullest feeling their very best!
It’s definitely a partnership. Their first visit is 1.5 hours. I encourage them to submit all they have from previous doctors, and their diagnoses. I also have them fill out a super detailed health form from birth till now as many items from early on lead to to current challenges, so there is definitely time and effort on their part to sit and fill out what I need and send all their previous documentation as well as to sit through appointments to be coached on their health to return their control back to them and to educate them on their health and wellness options. They may also choose functional testing to optimize things like nutrition levels at the cellular level, gut health, hormone health, etc.
I tell them if they feel their traditional doctor isn’t coming up with solutions or sure of what could be ailing them or if they want to optimize their health to the fullest, or if they need help achieving goals and want to make sure they make time, to give it a try!
