Hi, I’m Hannah. And I’m here to help.
I spent most of my life feeling sick. I woke up with a killer migraine every day and went to bed nauseous for most of my adolescence. I saw countless doctors, took an endless amount of tests, was sent for routine MRIs, and popped pills like it was my job. Doctors told me it was Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn's Disease, an eye problem, or that I would just have to live with headaches forever. And that is so not normal!
I knew there had to be a solution, but no one was providing it to me. Then a naturopathic doctor recommended I cut out gluten. I was willing to try anything at that point. It was immensely difficult at first. I ate some form of gluten or processed food at every meal for my whole life. But when I stopped eating that way, the headaches went away immediately.
And there it was: the answer to decades of issues was in front of me multiples times a day. It was in my food. I couldn’t believe that it took that long to figure it out. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and I was so thankful to finally have an answer to the years of suffering. I was frustrated that no one tried changing my diet years ago.
But more than frustration, I felt incredibly grateful. Making those changes transformed my daily life. I lived in a fog of sickness that only lifted when someone taught me more about nutrition and my daily habits. I learned that health is a whole lifestyle, not just the food we eat.
This realization led me to sign up to get my Nutritional Therapy Certification (which I completed in November 2017!). I want to help other people like me—people who struggle to find answers within traditional medicine.
Continuing education has been through Restorative Wellness Solutions I am Level 1, 2, and 3 certified allowing me to be able to provide different types of functional testing in my practice. I have also completed the Autoimmune Paleo Certified coach program to be able to provide the best care for those suffering with autoimmune diseases.
