Every single day that she is a nutritionist, she is invigorated by helping people feel better. She has practiced in a hospital setting for 18 years, and finds energy and joy in helping people on the path to recovery. She also had the great privilege of being a nutrition researcher, which gave her a deep understanding of what makes up good research or just hype or fuel for media propaganda.
Helping develop manageable building blocks of nutrients can be a simple way to overcome some daunting health issues, including chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, weight issues, and many others. The reason she became a virtual dietitian is to dive deeper to help people find the root causes of their illnesses and help people in ways that conventional medicine confines can’t fully address. Health is not the absence of disease, it is the presence of vitality!
She is passionate about integrative and functional medicine; you might say it is at the core of her being. It became undeniable early in her own health and the health of all my patients that the foods we eat, including herbs and key amounts of nutrients, are life-changing.
One story along her path was extremely pivotal in her career. She had serious hormonal balance issues that were plaguing her, causing chronic pain, among other major issues, and she was young! She simply wouldn’t accept that medicines did nothing but make it worse, or created new symptoms that were almost worse than the pain.
And she refused to accept that surgery was a good thing for her. Turning to integrative and functional medicine principles, including foods and nutraceuticals that help detoxify the body, took away my her and changed her life! This and many other experiences have led her on the path of discovery and further training to enrich her depth of knowledge.
