Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
I'm a REAL MOM who believes in REAL FOOD as a means to NOURISH and HEAL my family.
I believe the purpose of life is to love... to love God, to love my family, my neighbors and myself .
But, I know from experience, when you don't feel well, it's hard to love well. When you're tired and stressed out you don't have the energy to give of yourself to others.
The Nourished Mom was birthed from my own journey to feel well and be the mom and wife, sister and friend, I was created to be. A Mom that is patient, calm and loving. A mom that has the energy and desire to run and play. A Mom, who is not perfect, but who tries her best to teach her children how to reach out and love the people around them.
After having my second son I started experiencing health issues that my doctors couldn't explain. I had an array of seemingly random symptoms; constant digestive issues, brain fog, fatigue, infections, hearing loss, dizziness and joint pain. I went to conventional doctors and integrative doctors, specialists, homeopathic and holistic practitioners... They all did their best to address my symptoms, but they never got down to the root cause. I decided to take my health into my own hands and began researching for myself.
My research led me to try many different diets: Paleo, specific carbohydrate, auto-immune protocol and GAPS. I found that some foods made me feel great, while others (even seemingly healthy foods) made my symptoms return. But there wasn't one particular diet that worked perfectly for me and I couldn't figure it all out..
When I found the Nutritional Therapy Association, their approach to address nutritional deficiencies through a whole foods diet made so much sense. (Each function that happens within our bodies needs certain nutrients in order to be carried out; without the correct nutrients our bodies cannot function properly!) I love that Nutritional Therapy provides a personalized approach to healing, because every person is different and what works for one person may not work for another. Nutritional Therapy taught me the tools to figure out exactly what was going on in my body and how different foods supported or harmed me. I learned how to listen to my body to determine what foods and remedies worked for me... I was able to heal and thrive!
