My Background

Not wanting to repeat a week long stay in the hospital for severe digestive problems, I began to search for answers as to why I had developed a severe colon infection. I wanted to know what I could do to help my body heal and prevent this from happening again. With the help of various functional medicine practitioners and Nutrition Response Testing I regained my health, got off medication and I have been symptom free for over 5 years. I was a client at The Natural Improvement Center in Queensbury, NY which finalized my health journey. My digestive issues are gone, my osteoarthritis pain is better, I no longer need pain medication, I lost weight and I have more energy than I had in my thirties. I was so impressed with the way I was feeling that I started working at The Natural Improvement Center as a Health Coach. I then trained and received certification in Nutrition Response Testing and completed a master's program in Applied Clinical Nutrition, at NY Chiropractic College. Since the closing of The Natural Improvement Center in January, 2017, I opened my own practice to continue this very natural and effective way of improving health. I am passionate about helping you facilitate healing and attain optimal health. I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and a member of Weston A. Price Foundation and the Price-Pottenger Foundation.

What Can I Do For You?

When you come for your first visit, I will spend a lot of time getting to know you. We will spend a good hour just talking about you. I will then do a body analysis, called Nutrition Response Testing which helps me tap into your body to find stress in organs and organ systems. With this analysis and your nutrition history I will provide recommendations for food, supplementation and changes in lifestyle that are individual to you, to support you on your path to better health.

Nutrition Response Testing

Your amazing body is designed to heal and rebuild, whether it is from illness or injury. When a body cannot heal there is a barrier preventing it from doing so. What Nutrition Response Testing does is identify the barriers to healing, which are most commonly metals, chemicals, food sensitivities, immune challenges and scars. I use whole food supplements and other natural supports to overcome these barriers and allow the body to heal the way it was designed to. The supplements I use are safe and natural. They allow people to achieve the health level they are seeking without the use of invasive procedures and drugs, which often have harmful side effects.

Are You Experiencing?

  • Digestive problems such as: gas, bloating, belching, constipation, diarrhea
  • Food sensitivities
  • Allergies
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Joint Pain
  • Brain Fog / Unclear thinking
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

These symptoms are your body's way of saying.... "something is out of balance here, I need some help!" Our bodies are affected by many things, but the primary energy and communication source is food. Yes! Food is communication! So are you communicating with pure food sources or stress producing, food like substances?

If you have been putting off making the choice to take care of yourself and get to the root of your health issue, don't wait any longer. Today is the day that could change your life!
