Functional Nutrition Testing

I have always been passionate for learning how the body works and functions... optimally!

Over the last few years I have been studying Functional Medicine, this is an ongoing long process as there are so many precise functions with in our amazing body.

I now am offering Functional Nutrition Testing as part of my toolbox to help you feel and look your best.

Food allergy antibody tests are becoming more routine as our immune systems are reacting unknowingly to many different foods we sometimes wouldn't expect causing a plethora of symptoms including: weight gain, fatigue, digestive complains, etc.

The metabolic profile is my favorite (although most expensive) because it can uncover blocks or imbalances in our metabolism, detoxification and digestion. This test is perfect for those who are stuck in their weight loss and energy even after detoxing and increasing their activity level.

Please let me know if you would like more information on testing!

Trying to be Healthy...

What is health really? Is it merely the absence of disease… are we either healthy or diseased? Is there not a very large GREY area…

I don’t want to just be healthy I want to be vibrant, fantastic, energized!

Where are you on the health scale?


Wherever we are, we can move towards vibrant one step at a time, the challenge in this crazy life is HOW .

I have found that intentions are key. I intend to be healthy daily, I make choices and decisions and began this practice long ago. I live in balance and truly enjoy yummy indulgences and also truly enjoy the plethora of veggies I eat too!

Health is a journey.. there is no end. We have to enjoy the process if we are to progress.

Learn to let go of struggle, let go of fear, release the need for perfection and surrender to the unfolding of your body’s natural desire for wellness. Make little choices daily, set your intention towards feeling optimal.
