My journey to wellness began after being diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer and partial gastrectomy. After having part of my stomach removed not only did I suffer digestive issues but also horrible acne! After meeting a chiropractor that recommended a 21-day cleanse my life was forever changed. The cleanse made me realize my acne and digestive distress stemmed from poor nutrition, stress and hormonal imbalances. This jump started my passion for holistic health and nutrition from a functional perspective, getting to the root cause. I began studying nutrition as well as various healing practices and I knew I wanted to help educate others on the importance of living a well balanced lifestyle.

It is estimated over 70% of our immune system is determined by our gut function. Getting to the root cause of many symptoms can be linked back to poor gut health. Bringing the gut back in balance will result in an over all well-balanced environment to promote an improved immune system.
Not only does digestion and immune function occur in the gut, but it is also the largest hormone producing organ. Gut hormones have a key role in controlling food intake, energy expenditure, as well as mood. 80% - 90% of the feel good hormones like dopamine and serotonin are produced in the gut! Identifying digestive and nutritional imbalances are key to creating a foundation for healing and hormone balance.
Unfortunately our health becomes predetermined by the amount of time we have in our day and we struggle to maintain balance, creating stress in our body. Our days are rushed, food becomes fast, digestion stops, stress levels increase, and our relationships suffer. Over time, stress creates an over driven, under nourished, and out of balance toxic environment.
As stress levels rise, the function of our body decreases and the need for increased nourishment is necessary. A well-balanced lifestyle will provide you with more energy, restful sleep, increased immune function, radiant skin and an overall better quality of life. As a Loomis Digestive Health Specialist (LDHS) I can identify stressors and recommend enzyme nutrition therapy as a result of nutritional deficiencies. As an Oncology Trained Licensed Esthetician I can nourish your skin externally with Osmosis Skincare to promote healing and repair while we support and restore internal functions.
