Kathy is the person I turn to for real healing through nutrition and lifestyle changes

I came to Kathy in the beginning of 2017 with a fresh diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (an auto-immune disorder), severe systemic candida, moderate joint pain and inflammation, and leaky gut syndrome. These came about due to years of stress, a round of antibiotics, irritable bowel syndrome, and a viral infection (the “perfect storm” as I like to call it). I also had a genuine fear of food because my immune system went haywire every time I tried to eat which would, in-turn, cause “flares” of severe joint pain.

Since the beginning of the year, Kathy has worked tirelessly to unravel the complexity of my system-wide imbalance. Our goal was to restore equilibrium and I’m proud to say that 6 months later, I am 90% better.

We worked on calming down inflammatory responses, we examined my medical history for clues to other underlying issues that might be preventing me from healing, we have worked on my viral and toxic burdens, and I no longer fear eating — and have even been able to reintroduce some foods that I couldn’t eat before!

Where my doctor may only be able to spend 15 minutes with me working on the “essentials” (i.e. getting Hashimoto’s under control with medication), Kathy is actually the person I turn to for real healing through nutrition and lifestyle changes. Without Kathy, I honestly don’t know where I would be at in this journey. She is a wealth of information and I highly recommend her to friends and coworkers. My biggest advice for anyone seeking health help — create for yourself a team of advocates who champion holistic healing over quick fixes. Be open-minded, but be patient, and try not to be too hard on yourself in your journey back to wellness.
