You want to start feeling better, but you have NO idea where to begin.
I completely understand because I felt this way until I got my health back. Im going to bet you're weary from feeling sick and being in pain, having no energy, frequent bathroom visits, restricting foods and missing activities with family and friends. I have been there.
There was a time in my life when I struggled with chronic stomach issues, bladder pain and allergic reactions. I didn’t know what steps to take or who to turn to for advice. I started educating myself and realized the food I was eating and my lifestyle played a huge role. I made simple changes that yielded dramatic results. I feel better than I have in years and now I want to share how I did it with you!
It's important to understand that a person doesn't just develop chronic conditions suddenly. I'll help you discover the habits that led to how you're feeling today and give solutions to reverse your symptoms.
It's my passion to help women gain their life back and learn to make healthier food and lifestyle choices.
Why work with me?
I lived your life, I understand.
My bladder pain started at 10 years old and continued throughout my teens. My first overnight hospital stay with a hydro distention happened at 13. I continued to experience intermittent bladder problems through the next three decades paired with chronic stomach issues.
Four hydro distentions with cystoscopies, numerous bladder instillations and a surgically implanted Neurostimulator all happened before I ever heard the words Interstitial Cystitis. It wasn’t until my worst bladder flare in my early 50’s that I learned about IC.
My Urologist handed me the IC diet sheet and I found it completely overwhelming. After months of experimenting with food I found relief from my bladder pain. This led me to enroll in the largest nutrition school in New York, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. After receiving my nutrition health coaching certification from IIN, I craved a deeper understanding of the interconnections of the human body.
My need to understand the reason behind my bladder and digestive issues led me to study functional medicine. With my bladder issues in remission I begin focusing on healing my digestive issues. I’m currently in my second year studying functional medicine at the School of Applied Functional Medicine. My IC has been in complete remission over 4 years now. Using functional medicine and testing I was able to resolve my digestive issues and stop my allergy and hive reactions.
It’s my passion to help others identify what’s causing their symptoms and support their goals to remission using a customize protocol based on their unique needs and lifestyle. Together we boost your immune system, restore any nutrient imbalances, eliminate anything that’s harmful to the body such as foods, poor lifestyle habits, infections, pathogens, overgrowths or toxins. Creating a healing environment includes having a healthy mindset and restoring balance to every area of life.
My role is to educate my clients to discover how to make lasting changes providing them with tools, support and accountability. I do not diagnosis or treat instead help you discover that your body has the capability of healing itself. You might just need a little guidance along the way.
