Anxiety and Stress

You're a type-A personality, possibly even a perfectionist, who is having difficulty controlling your overactive mind, worry, and feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. You are overwhelmed, on the verge of burnout (perhaps already there?) but would love to have more control over your mind and emotions. When anxiety and stress take over, other issues can arise including insomnia, muscle tension, headaches, irregular bathroom habits, excess sweating, appetite changes, period changes, fatigue, depression, etc.

 

I have been in your shoes, and I know how frustrating it is when people tell you - just relax, don’t worry about it, it’s not a big deal, you’re too sensitive, calm down, it’s all in your head... Because you know it's not that easy!

 

​I am so glad you found your way here because I want you to know, with the right tools and support, you can have better regulation over your mood, cherish each moment in the present, and think clearly so you can be more productive and reach your goals. Imagine what you could accomplish if you converted all the excess energy that your anxious stressed mind is consuming into productive energy to have you checking off your to-do list at lightning speed leaving time for relaxation and self-care!

 

Maybe right now is not the "right time" to focus on you - work is too busy, not enough time, taking care of family is more important... Let's be honest. If you don't take a step towards change now, there will never be a "right time". This is a prime example of your anxiety shining through with worry of failure and fear of change. Let me show you how your anxiety and stress can work for you, instead of against you!

Rock Balancing

Fatigue

Your battery is running low, you’re dragging your feet to get through the day and can’t seem to keep up. You are exhausted, resulting in difficulty with focus, concentration, memory, and brain fog. I call this "zombie mode". You deserve to wake up feeling refreshed and have enough energy to keep up with the life you dream of, without feeling like your eyes are going to close mid-afternoon (Psst! When I was in zombie mode, I used to take naps at work too).

I understand your tank is low. I also understand how difficult it is to make diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes when even the basic daily tasks are taxing enough. When energy is low, we take it step-by-step. Once the energy comes up, life becomes so much easier!

 

It is tempting to rely on quick fixes, caffeine, energy drinks, and supplements that will boost your energy. These are temporary and will only exhaust you further. I know you are smarter than that, and what you really want is a permanent restoration of your energy and you just need the right guidance. With all-day energy, you are capable of so much more. You deserve EVERY bit of what you are capable of and I can help you grab every last bit of it.

 

Let’s fix the underlying causes so you can get back to your energized high-achieving self again. We will consider how sleep, autoimmune conditions, hormone imbalances (cortisol, thyroid, and female hormones), nutrient deficiencies, blood sugar irregularities, and chronic infections may be impacting your energy levels. There are safe and 100% natural solutions to recharge your battery, once and for all!

Healthy Food

Digestive Health

Digestive concerns have a major impact on our overall health. We rely on optimal digestion and absorption to fuel our bodies every day and keep us healthy. You may be struggling with constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas, bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, reflux, or heartburn. Perhaps you have been diagnosed with ulcers, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's, or Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Maybe you have had imaging completed and were told everything is normal, but you know everything is not “normal”. While imaging checks for structural changes, it does not provide much information about the function of the digestive system.

You know your body best, and if you feel something is not right, chances are, something is not right. We must look at all factors that can impact digestion, both structural and functional. Let’s dive deep into investigating whether digestive enzymes, bacterial imbalances, parasitic infections, stress and anxiety, food intolerances, inflammation, and immune dysregulation may have an impact. In women, we need to assess if female hormone concerns may also be a factor since the female organs and digestive system are neighbors.

It is confusing trying to tease apart the exact cause of your symptoms, what to eat, and how to manage. I understand how frustrating and embarrassing it is when no matter what you eat, you are left feeling uncomfortable. After completing your treatment protocol, you will have a greater understanding of what is happening in your body, more freedom over food choices, and predictability over your bowels, without having to maintain a highly restrictive diet!

Other Conditions Treated

Butterflies

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck, with a BIG role in your body. Your thyroid controls the speed at which your body systems operate. When the thyroid is imbalanced, you feel the impact body-wide. Imbalances contribute to challenges with weight, memory, energy, mood, bowel regularity, hair and skin, temperature regulation, heart rate, periods, fertility, etc.

Since the symptoms are vague and widespread, we must investigate for other imbalances that may be contributing to your symptoms before blaming them all on your thyroid. It’s also important that we determine if your thyroid imbalance is autoimmune related, as many of them are.

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with a thyroid condition or suspect your thyroid may be playing a role in your symptoms but are still searching for answers, I'm here to support you!
