If you are struggling with Hashimoto’s or other autoimmune disease, I understand firsthand what you are going through.  I know how limiting your everyday life can be. Believe me, I’ve been there.  I spent years going to different doctors to get a proper diagnosis. 
If you're like me, you are trying to keep up with your many roles as mother, wife, employee, sister, and friend.

 

Everything that you need to do is impacted because you're in this brain fog.  You're going through bouts of anxiety, mood disorders, weight gain and difficulty losing it, dealing with GI issues, and possibly even skin disorders.  If you do find a doctor that listens to you and you start hormone therapy, it doesn’t always mean that your symptoms will resolve.  The good news is you don’t have to go on being limited in your everyday life.

 

With the program I offer, I look at each patient as an individual. Together we look at dietary choices and other lifestyle factors that could be contributing to their specific illness.  Perhaps they have an aversion to certain foods, or there is a problem with their sleep pattern.  It could be that there is a metabolic imbalance that is impacting how the systems within their body function.  By using an individualized, whole-body approach to treating my patients, I’ve found that they can regain their life and feel better than they have in years.

My Philosophy

Functional wellness is all about prevention.  It's being proactive about your health. Functional wellness is the medicine of the future!

Using a systematized approach and looking at each person as an individual we are able to get to the root cause of what is troubling you so that we can fix it not just now, but for the future. 

 

I started Hashimoto's Functional Wellness because I understand how those dealing with this health concern feel.  I believe I can help you decrease if not reverse your symptoms.  Through lab testing and evaluating lifestyle choices such as diet and activity level, we can get to the root cause of what's going on with you as an individual and fix any imbalances within your body.  As a holistic occupational therapist, I will support you in establishing a plan for wellness so that you can optimize your health.
