I've been there before. After my 2nd child in my early 30's, I just could not get the weight off. The same processes I had used in the past were just not working. For the weight to even budge, I had to exercise 15-20 hours a week. Little did I know at the time I was self-medicating due to low cortisol. When that schedule became unsustainable, the weight creeped back up because I never addressed the reason my cortisol was low. The stress of life, food sensitivities, and mold toxicity threw me for a loop. There were days when I struggled to have enough energy to get out of bed, let alone accomplish all the items of being a wife, mother, pharmacist and business owner. That is when I started studying functional medicine to get the answers I needed to feel better.
Now I teach the same process that got me feeling vibrant and well and on the right track to healing my issues. Each day is a new journey with choices, but I would never go back to the choices that made me feel awful. At the time, I did not know they were making me feel awful. As pictured to the left, I began to practice what is called puzzle piecing. I take what you are dealing with and your unique situation and put together the pieces of the puzzle. There could be many things like nutritional deficiencies, genetic factors, hormone imbalances, and many other factors contributing to your Dis-Ease that we need to get to the bottom of, so you feel vibrant and well!
My team and I are committed to giving patients the gift of hope.....hope to feel energized, hope for strength, and hope for feeling vibrant and well!
