Living My Dream Helping People Achieve Their Health Goals
As a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner I am living my dream helping people achieve their health goals. I have spent 8 years researching every aspect of natural healing and have made it my life long quest to continue that learning. I am able to pull knowledge from many sources including my 4 year Honor's Degree in Biomedicine, my 3 year diploma in Massage Therapy, and many different natural healing courses.
I am a high energy, passionate woman and I love true, natural beauty. I love yoga, golfing, kayaking and hiking, riding my horse, dog agility and travelling. I cherish every moment I am able to do the things I love because it was not long ago that I was in constant pain, fatigued and unable to do anything.
On September 28th 2018 I gave birth to my son Kaiden! This was the best day of my life. It wasn’t long ago that I didn’t think I would ever be able to have a child because I could barely take care of myself due to Lupus, Migraines, Interstitial Cystitis and a whole host of other symptoms
My Health Issues Were Ruining My Life
I couldn’t take care of myself let alone a child and doctors didn’t think I would be able to have a successful pregnancy
My migraines were trapping me in a dark, sound proof room making me miss out on family events due to fear of scents triggering one
Not being able to sleep at night left me tired and unable to accomplish tasks at work
Joint pain and fatigue kept me from being able to compete with my dogs in agility
Depression and anxiety limited my social life
Interstitial cystitis ruined my sex life and was affecting my relationship with my spouse
Cystic acne and my extra weight made me self conscious and not want to dress up and go out
My moods swings were driving my family crazy and putting a strain on my relationships
The symptoms from Lupus limited my ability to function and I eventually had to stop working all together
I Didn't Address My Health Issues and They Quickly Spiraled Out of Control
In August of 2012 I had to quit my job and move home with my parents because I could barely lift a spoon most days...
This was my breaking point- giving up everything I had worked for. I had prided myself on being a strong, independent woman but my body had given up. I knew it was the right choice and I am proud of myself for doing it. I needed to heal. I needed to learn how to heal. I needed to change my life.
It Took Me 6 Years to Heal My Body
I healed from migraines that had plagued me for 20 years (had my first one at age 7) I’ve Been Migraine Free for 5 Years!
After suffering from insomnia since 13 years old I am now sleeping 6-8 hours a night (I was until Kaiden was born lol)
I have been in remission from Lupus for almost 6 years without the use of medications
I successfully got off Effexor and I am no longer suffering from depression or anxiety
I have healed from Interstitial Cystitis! Yay for pain free sex!
I lost 20 lbs that I had struggled with losing since a teen (I gained 40 lbs for Kaiden lol)
I healed from cystic acne and I am proud of my natural beauty- no photoshop
I had a healthy pregnancy and delivered a 9lb 8 oz healthy baby boy after carrying him to 42 weeks!
I am happy, vibrant and full of energy!
I Can Accomplish Anything I Desire
I have the motivation, drive and energy to run a successful Health Coaching Business while being a full time, stay at home mom and still enjoying hiking with my dogs and riding my horse!
I Did More Healing in 6 Months than in 5 Years
The journey was definitely worth it but it was very frustrating at times. I spent so much money and took many steps backwards on trial and error. I did more healing in 6 months after taking my Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Course than I did in the other 5 years. Using Functional Labs I was able to get to the root cause of my health issues and heal my body as a whole instead of focusing on reducing the symptoms.
