Functional Medicine & Nutrition
As a Functional Medicine-trained Nutritionist, I am dedicated to exploring and investigating the root causes contributing to your migraines. Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease, which is anchored by an examination of the core clinical imbalances that underlie various disease conditions. Those imbalances arise as environmental inputs such as diet, nutrients (including air and water), exercise, and trauma are processed by one’s body, mind, and spirit through a unique set of genetic predispositions, attitudes, and beliefs.
This approach encompasses a comprehensive health and nutrition history, review of current labs, supplements, medications, lifestyle factors, stress, and more. By partnering together during your healing journey, I assist you with exploring a new approach and perspective about healing. After suffering for many years with chronic migraines, I have discovered how to restore and renew the body’s own ability to heal itself. I come to you offering my experience and compassion with the process of whole-body healing. This involves understanding your body’s unique needs and working toward sustainable change.
Nutritional consults may also include functional medicine health coaching and may cover topics such as alternative treatment options; genetic and biochemical testing; using a migraine calendar and food journal; addressing food triggers; lifestyle and dietary suggestions; stress reduction techniques, positive psychology, and referrals to specialists. Your coaching may include video, phone and email interaction, as well as handouts and supplementary research as needed. I work with clients internationally and locally, depending on your state laws. Locally, I am available to come to your home and assist with shopping, kitchen set-up, cooking techniques, meal planning and preparation so that you can be successful in your healing.
How to Get Help
I spent over 10 years going to migraine specialists and taking every pharmaceutical prescribed to me before I realized that I was actually getting worse. After accepting that the doctors I trusted were unable to help me, I had to overcome the obstacles I faced – such as financial constraints, the challenge of taking responsibility for my lifestyle choices and health, and not having enough time to seek alternative, holistic treatments. I can relate to the challenges you may be experiencing – and I encourage you to work through them by my side. We can explore new ways to address your health.
My mission is to help you get well and then we can spread the message of hope together, one person at a time. Will you join me?
Don’t let obstacles get in the way of your health and wellness. There is hope to heal!
