I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason.
After a lifetime of suffering from digestive conditions, reproductive issues and allergies, I had a conversation one day with my General Practitioner that changed my life. I was tired of years of medications, procedures and surgeries that didn't seem to be helping. I went to her office with a thick file of research I had done and asked her to go through it with me to try and understand WHY I was sick. She was very rushed and instead she prescribed yet another medication. I pleaded that I didn't want to treat the symptoms - I wanted to get to the bottom of why I had the symptoms in the first place. She was very frustrated and said, "that isn't my science and I can't help you." It all made sense to me then. It wasn't that she didn't want to help me, she wasn't trained in medical school on how to heal, just how to treat which is enough in the short term. If I wanted to get well forever, I needed to take control of my health. For the rest of my life, I will be grateful to her!
Along my journey, I found the ways to heal my body through food and lifestyle changes that work best for me. I am so very grateful for all of my experiences as they have prepared me to help other find what works best for them.
I received my formal training to practice
Health Counseling at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It is the only nutrition school integrating over 200 traditional dietary
modern concepts such as the USDA Food Pyramid, The Glycemic Index, The
Zone, Raw Foods, Gluten Free and Superfoods. It is here that I had the unique opportunity to learn directly from leaders in the medical and holistic health field such as Dr. Andrew Weil, Deepak Chopra, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Marion Nestle, David Wolfe and Paul Pitchford.
I received advanced certification with M'lis Corporation, a longstanding international leader in natural, holistic health and skin care solutions. The body has an amazing ability to heal itself and it is here that this belief was solidified for me. Through detoxification, cleansing, food and lifestyle changes, people can take control of their health and return to symptom free living!
I believe that life is an amazing gift and everyone deserves to live it with great energy and joy. I look forward to helping you feel and look your best!
