Functional Medicine Health Coaching
I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) with certifications in Functional Medicine and Ayurveda health coaching. Functional Medicine (FM) is a practice developed to search for illness’s root causes and triggers and offers a client-centered approach. Functional Medicine doctors and practitioners do more extensive testing or evaluating to determine the underlying conditions that may be present and treat the individual as a whole.
I first learned about Functional Medicine through teaching therapeutically oriented yoga at a Functional Medicine Center. I became aware of the concept of treating individuals as a whole person and addressing the root causes of illness. I became further aware during a health crisis six years ago when I could not find any answers from conventional medical doctors. It turned out that I had a bacterial infection that knocked down my immune system that traditional medical tests could not detect.
Functional Medicine testing of my microbiome showed an imbalance of pathogenic bacteria, along with high levels of mercury and lead in my body. Gratefully, I have almost completely recovered and regained my energy. I also received the gift of newfound awareness of how to heal our bodies as a whole.
My Ayurveda studies showed me how lifestyle habits and preventative measures are relevant to sustaining good health. Functional Medicine taught me to dive deep into the roots of my health issues and bring in all the principles of healing and a personalized approach to health coaching.
I enjoy incorporating all of my trainings to bring you the best for optimal health and well being.
FM treats the individual, not the disease.
It supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking the disease directly.
Research shows us that we have a complicated network of relationships internally, and understanding those relationships allows one to see more depth into the body’s functioning.
Our bodies are intelligent and have the capacity for self-regulation.
Our bodies have the innate ability to heal, prevent disease, and create vitality through the aging process.
As a Functional Medicine Health Coach, my mission is to help clients identify their challenges and help them to find solutions within themselves and work effectively with their doctor’s protocol. Or, if you are looking to create a healthier lifestyle and wellness protocol and need support and guidance, I can assist you with that as well.
As a Functional Ayurveda health coach, I can help you understand what matters most so you can feel empowered to make lasting lifestyle changes that allow you to reach your health goals. I am your wellness advocate who will guide you through your health transformation, so you create your optimal life of vitality and wellness.
