I spent the majority of my life wondering why I felt so terrible when my conventional doctor told me everything was “normal.” It wasn’t until I discovered Functional Medicine that everything began to make sense. A few years ago, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks your thyroid. The thyroid produces hormones that coordinate many of your body’s functions. At first, I felt overwhelmed and wondered how this could be happening to me! I was so young and “healthy.” This was a turning point in my life. I could choose to listen to my doctor, who told me there is nothing I can do to feel better outside of taking a pill for the rest of my life, or I could take control of my life and commit to making significant changes. I chose my health and happiness and began researching, reading, listening to podcasts, and ultimately that is when I found Functional Medicine.
I love working with clients, sharing tools, tips, and resources. As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach who has struggled with fatigue, gut issues, migraines, anxiety, inability to lose weight, and so on, I can say we will always put your needs and goals first. I will encourage and support you on your journey because I personally know how challenging every second of life can feel. Making diet and lifestyle changes can be challenging, but it is so worth it.
In health and happiness
