Consultations

I can help solve your IBS puzzle.. 

I help people get to the root cause of their uncomfortable symptoms faster. I test for things your doctor didn’t check.

I use function lab testing and a mind body approach to healing. The tests I use are the SIBO test, a comprehensive stool analysis and an optional adrenal test to look at hormones and stress tolerance.

I go over your health and medical history, diet, lifestyle factors and dig deeper. We kick start your body’s self healing powers.

Examples of few root causes that slow or block your ability to  recovery:

  • Overgrowths like SIBO, candida, h pylori or parasites
  • Leaky gut and immune system issues
  • Adrenal dysfunction and blood sugar balance
  • Food allergies
  • Toxicity, sluggish liver or heavy metals
  • Bacterial dysbiosis (imbalance or overgrowth)
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Nervous system dysregulation and/or trauma

My health coaching approach is scientific and intuitive.

What’s a health coach?

My health coaching degree comes from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York City. But I am mostly self taught through obsessive reading and personal experience. As a health coach, each client experience builds on my knowledge of what works.

I am not a doctor, naturopath or nutritionist. I don’t practice medicine or diagnose disease. We dive deeper into the imbalances that have been building up in your life that have led to your current issues. With me you will learn how to care for yourself to stay in balance for the rest of your life.

I’m a highly sensitive person and an empath. I get sensitive and intuitive types.  We sensitive types have a greater need for self care than the general population.

My mind body training comes from 7 years of intensive study of Chi Gong and Yoga Nidra. They are body-focused meditatiion. In my experience, stress reduction practices speed up recovery significantly.

I love to work with people who are motivated, curious and open minded.

I specialize in helping with SIBO and bacterial imbalance, anxiety, depression, mood issues, hormonal imbalance, fatigue, food allergies, infections, leaky gut, immune issues and GERD/reflux.

I answer your questions about the right probiotics to take or foods to eat so you don’t have to live in a world of overwhelm and confusion. You don’t have to do this alone.

How to work with me

I work with people over the phone, in person and on Skype.

Strategy session

This is a great way to work with me if you don’t want to commit to a 3 month program.

Strategy sessions are 90 minutes long and include a detailed health history review. I will comb over your health history with you, ask relevant questions and give recommendations for testing, diet and supplementation. After the session I am available for guidance or follow up questions over e-mail. If you would like to do functional lab testing with me we can break this up into two 45 minutes session where I meet with you before to answer questions and after the results come back to go over them with you and make recommendations.

The cost is $300

Three month program

The 3 month program

This program will find and address the root cause of your physical symptoms. I don’t believe in one size fits all approaches. We focus this program the program on your unique issues and give your body exactly what it needs.

SIBO stands for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and is very common among IBS sufferers. I recommend this test to anyone with an IBS diagnosis or typical IBS symptoms. It is very important to either identify SIBO or rule it out, because it will strongly dictate how we approach you IBS solution.

Our work together will include an intake session, dietary recommendations, testing, results, protocols and follow up. We can also dive into issues like nervous system health, stress management, relief for anxiety and other challenges you are facing.  We focus on calming the gut and speeding up your progress.

I believe IBS is a mind body issue. Your thoughts influence your gut function as much as your gut influences your thoughts. The most effective and comprehensive approach incorporates diet, supplementation and testing as well as mental and emotional exploration. I am not a therapist but I have been where you are now and have some tips for managing the challenges of your experience.

Unlike most doctors and naturopaths, I am here to listen and dive deep to give you the support and guidance you need to help you trouble shoot the problems you face.

This program comes with unlimited e-mail support so you never feel like you are lost or alone in your problems.

The cost of the three month program is $900.
