About me and my personal story of healing through nutrition.
When I was growing up, I experienced horrible stomach pains. My mom was a nurse and you know she tried everything possible to find a medical answer for me. The doctors eventually did a scope to find the physical cause of the problem. Unfortunately, even that test brought no answers. I struggled to simply deal with my stomach pain. At this point, I didn’t understand what was wrong, but I would learn. Even though I felt stuck, I resolved to stop complaining and live my life. Life moved on and I dealt with it.
Because of my husband’s work, we moved to Korea. Ah, Korea. The people, the culture, the food. Oh, the stuffed pretzels, the noodle shops everywhere with their incredible homemade noodles. This was bliss. Until the day I found myself rocking in pain and nearly passing out while eating out at a local restaurant. It was excruciating. Thankfully, my daughter was with me and she managed to get me home. Three or four days later and I was still incredibly ill. My husband brought me to the E.R. The IV pain medication barely even touched the pain. The doctors wanted to do another scope, but I already did that and wasn’t willing to do it again.
I decided to start my own month long elimination diet and ended up learning wheat was not my friend. The next step was to start some research and find out what I could eat that didn’t include wheat. I soon came to realize the problem was not only wheat, but other grains as well, including rice.
I wanted to learn more.
My research, and my own health changes, only whetted my appetite to learn all I could about nutrition and how intensely it affects our health. I wanted the real information, not just common knowledge. There are so many commonly held beliefs about nutrition that are myths at best, and lies at worst. So far, my education includes two diplomas, representing 120 hours of official nutrition education, plus countless hours of my own research. I am currently completing another certification. Nutrition education will be a lifelong journey for me. I love to learn and nothing brings me more pleasure than sharing my knowledge with others. I want to always keep learning so I can pass that on. Everything I have learned has led to my own healing. Because of this, I know my journey is in perfect alignment to affect your health as well.
If you are here, it means you’ve been looking for a way to get your health on track. Not just A WAY, but YOUR WAY! A way that takes you from feeling sick, tired, sluggish and fatigued to feeling light, happy, healthy, and free within your body.
You’re here because you are learning that when your body isn’t performing at its best, your whole life takes a turn — and not for the better. That’s a difficult awareness for some of us. My own story of learning what my body can and cannot process has changed my life in so many ways. In fact, it brought me right here to you.
This is the work I was born to do! I’ve learned so much raising a family and now living in a completely different part of the world. I have learned many things about how I can take control of my nutrition and change my world, let’s discover exactly how to help YOU do the same.
What is a Nutritional Therapist?
As a nutritional therapist, my job is to establish whether or not your diet is right for your current state of health.
I take into account your unique dietary needs and formulate a personalized diet plan to correct nutrient deficiencies, help alleviate health symptoms, and monitor health improvements.
One day I may be working with a healthy person in order to prevent disease, and the next working with someone who is sick to help ease and minimize symptoms of a developed disease.
Nutritional Therapy cannot replace medical treatment… but it can certainly complement it!
If you do have health concerns or a condition, there are many areas where nutritional advice or therapy can help make positive changes.
I offer a limited number Free Personal Strategy Sessions. You can choose your appointment time below.
