Be Your own advocate
Conventional healthcare does very little to address the root cause of people’s symptoms, leading to band-aid fixes in the form of toxic pharmaceuticals. Take the time to learn the basics so you can advocate for your health and ensure your practitioner is doing their job. It’s not intuitive to question the people in the white coats, but you know your body best. I hope to empower people to speak up about their health concerns through education and awareness. Below are my favorite resources for nutritional knowledge, and health in general.

I’ve teamed up with a few of my favorite companies that create products conducive with a functional approach to health. I only partner with brands that I use, love and trust.

These products contain affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will get a commission if you click through and make a purchase.
Equip foods is a science-based supplement company founded by a functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Anthony Gustin.

Ned is a small batch hemp-based CBD company based in Boulder, CO. I rely on CBD daily to mitigate symptoms of Lyme disease such as anxiety and joint pain.
