MY STORY

8r5a3550_edited_edited.jpg

Since I was a child I have struggled with serious digestive issues and chronic fatigue and spent a significant amount of time during  my High-school and College years experimenting with a variety of diets and “healthy” approaches, but nothing seemed to work. I continued to suffer from gastrointestinal mycosis, IBS, adrenal fatigue and vitamin deficiencies. Then, I was diagnosed with a fructose malabsorption Hashimoto Hypothyroidism. 

Both physically and emotionally,  I was in a state of debilitating imbalance. Basically, my body was sending me messages that something had to change. 

​Eventually I began studying nutrition and holistic approaches to seek out an effective solution to these problems, eliminate my symptoms, and reach a state of health.

I began using food as a medicine, eliminating certain foods that were not good for me and gradually introducing others that I hadn’t tried. I also made some important changes in my lifestyle. The result was that, one day at a time, I began experiencing some incredible changes that gradually cured my symptoms and brought me to a complete state of health.

I began my path in Integrative Medicine, and alongside nutrition and health coaching techniques, I studied Yoga, Ayurveda, the principles of TCM, Mindfulness and the Gut Microbiome (which I continue to explore to this day). These are all practices that, together, gave me a powerful foundation to start on a journey of self-awareness, while providing me with the practical tools to work specifically on my body, mind and spirit. During this time, with a renewed skill set and perspective, I was able to connect the dots and  turned my health crisis into a career. I now help people through the connection between nutrition, lifestyle, and wellbeing by looking at the root causes of symptoms, with the goal of bringing people to a healthier state and preventing chronic illnesses, through education, adjustments, practice and accountability.
