After dealing with stubborn weight, persistent acne, frustrating bloating, and chronic muscle pain, I was desperate for answers. I was eating a very clean, plant-based diet and exercising regularly, but I had chronic inflammation, poor gut health, and never felt well.

From Fed Up, Overweight, and Unhappy…
In 2007, I hit the ready-to-make-changes point with my body and health. I was 30 lbs. overweight, tired, had terrible skin, and absolutely no self-confidence. I was also facing a family history of heart disease leading to very early death and the reality of impending future health risks was starting to sink in. I knew I had to make some serious changes and I wasn’t getting any younger.
I started intense workouts and paying more attention to what I was eating. And it worked…I lost the 30 pounds, changed the physical shape of my body, and gained confidence and strength. But…it didn’t last.
Maybe you’ve heard statements like these…
“You can’t out-train a bad diet”
“Abs are made in the kitchen”
They’re both true. And, the food you eat plays a much larger role in your overall health, immune system and longevity than fitness alone.
Even with a regular fitness routine, the weight came back on. I was also bloated, had headaches, and chronic muscle soreness even without strenuous workouts. These were all signs and symptoms of a systemic issue in my body.
I completed a nutritional therapy protocol of my own which eliminated all of the bloating and pain as well as the stubborn weight. It all came down to dealing with poor gut health, fixing nutrient deficiencies, eating the right foods, and reducing my toxicity.
Now, through all of my personal experience and years of scientific study, I am prepared and excited to help YOU heal your body too!

Values to Live By
No physical or mental restrictions
Avoiding unnecessary medications, illnesses, injuries, symptoms, extra weight and other limitations and distractions.
Most of our health is controlled by our decisions and our mindset – not our circumstances.
Physically and mentally strong and capable
Truly live every day – finding happiness, purpose and joy in each day. Being capable to actively participate in all of life’s experiences.
These are the things that make life beautiful.
Always seeking excitement, new experiences & fun
Helping others, finding the fun in everyday life and spending time with the people who make you better – that is the purpose of life.
You can’t do any of that without health and vitality. You need freedom from medications, and limitations to truly live the life of your dreams.
