Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner
I am a Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner, and a Certified Clinician in Whole Food Nutrition. I also have a degree in Holistic Nutrition. I decided to become a Practitioner because of the amazing care, hope and healing that I received as a patient of Nutrition Response Testing. I had suffered with Ulcerative Colitis for over 20 years and have now found energy and a joy for life again! My goal is to bring hope and optimal health to as many people as I can through good nutrition. I enjoy reading, running and spending time with my family and our new puppy.
I have been diagnosed with a digestive disorder called Ulcerative Colitis. I spent 20 years fighting serious illness and pain. I have seen numerous doctors and have been prescribed medications from almost every class of drugs for my condition. My reactions to these medications included high fevers, hair loss, excess pain, and/or no change. I was eventually given a form of chemotherapy to try to relieve my symptoms. I spent days after every dose too nauseated to even move. At my lowest point I was down to 93 pounds and was planning my funeral. I had two three year olds at the time and was devastated at the thought of leaving my family. In 2012 I was hired on at Health and Healing Family Chiropractic, soon after I started the Nutrition Response Testing program. After a year of learning Nutrition and lifestyle changes, my Gastrointestinal Doctor informed me that I was almost in remission. I feel that I have been given my life back! I now have the energy to enjoy my family and friends. This is why I decided to become a Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner. I have always been drawn to helping people and feel that this is the perfect avenue to accomplish that goal. I am very greatful for this career path. It is an amazing feeling to have my health back and to love my work!
Front Desk staff
I am a 2020 graduate from the College of Saint Benedict. Here at Holistic Family, I am able to better explore my minor in nutrition as I continue to learn daily. I also enjoy being able to interact with new people and making a difference in the community. In my spare time I often meal prep, read, or spend time with loved ones.
