After receiving my M.S. in nutrition from Eastern Michigan University along with my Registered Dietitian credentials I felt a piece of what I so longed to understand was missing. I felt in my soul there was more to nutrition than what I had been taught in textbooks, so listening to this calling I went on to study with the Integrative and Function Nutrition Academy. It was through these courses that I truly began to learn what it meant to use of food as medicine. With an ever growing curiosity for healing naturally I enrolled in, and graduated from the Women's Functional & Integrative Medicine Professional Training Program, founded and taught by the one and only Dr. Aviva Romm. During this training program I discovered that my love for botanical medicine (once held only for my personal life) held an integral place in my professional life. I realized that by blending what I knew about food as medicine, and my passion for the power of botanical medicine I could truly help my clients thrive. In coming to this realization I have gone on to further my intuitive relationship with botanical medicine, as well as my clinical understanding, by completing a botanical medicine apprenticeship with Yahola Herbal School, and also studying once again under Dr. Aviva Romm through her Herbal Medicine for Women course.
You can be healthy.
Too often we tell ourselves we'll take better care of ourselves tomorrow, or once this certain time period is over, or once things get less crazy at work, or school, or home, or whatever it is that might be going on in our lives. Life is precious, and too often we suffer too long with uncomfortable, and even debilitating symptoms from what we are told are simply common, (and sometimes uncommon) health issues. We live in a society where we are taught to settle and just get used to our ailments because that is our life, and aside from medications there isn't much that can be done.
I don't accept that answer. I don't accept that just because something is common it is also considered normal. I don't accept living life in fear of the unknown, or living in pain and discomfort. I don't accept managing ailments with medications that need their own medications to manage side effects. I do however, accept that healing takes really hard work and dedication, but that it can be done.
Imagine what life could feel like fully energized, healthy, and free from illness, free from pain and fear of sudden urges to use the bathroom, living life in a body that makes you feel amazing, or a life with happy, healthy children... Just imagine the possibilities....
Let me help you get back to living your life freely. It won't be easy and it won't be quick, but we can do some amazing things.
