Here are answers to commonly asked questions that I get as a health expert.
What if my family doesn’t want to change their eating habits?
That is perfectly ok! Yes, it makes it easier to have everyone on board but we are all at different stages in our lives and with our health so it is not uncommon for spouses and kiddos to eat different. I view that as a way to be a positive influence on your loved ones! Others will see your results and want a piece of that pie!
What made you want to be a Nutritionist?
My battle with Lyme changed dramatically when I began to use food as medicine. I was absolutely astounded by the power of food. I completely healed myself, gut, candida, and thyroid. I want to spread the word and help others heal. I want to show others that they can be in control of their health!
Are you certain you can help me feel better?
Yes! My passion is to help others! And as long as you implement your customized plan you are going to have amazing results! You have the power within you to get well, you just don’t realize it! With my help and the tools I will teach you, healing will be on your way.
What is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner?
As a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner I look at the systems of your body as a whole that work together. These systems include food, movement, digestion, sleep, supplementation, and stress. I will assess where you are currently with your health and what your goals are. I will create a customized plan specific to your needs so that you can reach your ultimate wellness goals.
Will you work with my doctor?
Yes! Absolutely! Doctors receive little training on nutrition in med school so my scope of work is not something they focus on. You wouldn’t come to me for a broken arm and you wouldn’t go to them for nutrition advice!
I am sick with Lyme. How can you help?
Lyme is a multi-faceted disease and their is not a magic pill, unfortunately. But if you can get your body in the right state to heal it will. As a Lyme survivor I know what it is like to suffer from the wretched disease. I understand die-offs, the mental anguish, and what it takes to get well. It is because of Lyme that I found my calling. I am not here by accident and neither are you. You have to approach Lyme from many angles as it wreaks havoc on all of your systems.
