RN, BSN, Certified Health and Nutrition Coach, Certified Food Allergy and Intolerance Coach
I suffered for over 17 years with inflammatory bowel disease which depleted my body of many necessary nutrients.
I was taking medication for my heart, GERD, diarrhea, and thyroid. I was low in B12, iron, and had osteopenia.
My quality of life suffered because of my unpredictable sprints to the bathroom and having to tote essential oils and bottles of Poo Pourri wherever I went. Not ideal in the middle of a meeting with a room full of medical directors.
After multiple specialists failed to help me, I decided to change my lifestyle. I started eating clean healthy food that was nutrient-dense and good for my gut.
I discovered food intolerances that I didn’t know I had by performing my own elimination diet.
This changed my life. I am now off all medications except a very low dose of Synthroid.
I feel amazing and better now than I did 10 years ago.
I obtained my health and nutrition coaching certification along with a specialty certification in food allergy and intolerance coaching.
In all that I have learned the one thing that I know is that we are all different with different nutrition needs. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to health, weight loss, and fitness goals.
A restrictive plan that does not take into account the person’s holistic needs will not work!
