Hi, so nice you’re here. I’m Emilie, your Gut Health Nutritionist!

My road to holistic health and nutrition started when I was working as a public school teacher. I was working in an elementary school, and I was horrified by the food served in the cafeteria. I started reading and learning on my own about food and the food industry. I learned how food and the way we grow our food affect our health. I'm a runner and was vegan at the time and thought I already was eating "healthy."

My road to holistic health and nutrition started when I was working as a public school teacher. I was working in an elementary school, and I was horrified by the food served in the cafeteria. I started reading and learning on my own about food and the food industry. I learned how food and the way we grow our food affect our health. I'm a runner and was vegan at the time and thought I already was eating "healthy."

Three days into a new school year, I fell sick with mononucleosis, a strain of Epstein-Barr virus. It took a full 12 months before I felt well again. Any teacher reading this knows how demanding and stressful the job can be.

About four months after recovering from mono, the demands of my teaching job caught up with me, and I was sick again. I repeated this pattern for several years; all the while, my PCP couldn't remedy my situation as this was virus-based, and there wasn't medication to combat viral infections. A friend referred me to a naturopathic doctor, and although I'd never really heard of this type of physician, I was desperate to get better.

I slowly healed with a whole-body, natural approach. The doctor addressed my glands, immune function, hormones and recommended targeted supplements and treatments that helped me get my health back.

During this process, I found that I wanted to delve into a holistic health practitioner world. I started looking into holistic nutrition programs and learned about a new program at the National University of Natural Medicine, NUNM, through one of the naturopathic doctors I knew. I attended one of their prospective student seminars and found my new career path. After taking a few pre-requisite courses, I worked my way through the Masters of Science in Nutrition program, graduating with a degree in nutrition.

WHY GUT HEALTH?

Even though I see clients with many different health issues, I often find the common element of treating the gut. From skin issues to chronic digestive disorders, mental health to metabolic function, weight loss, and hormonal balance treating the gut using a comprehensive stool test to guide treatment yields the best results. Dysbiosis of the gut and the personal state of gut health are so often the culprit!

At this point, I started using stool tests as part of my treatment, as they provide an excellent baseline for treatment. The health coaching outcomes were so much better using the GI Test revealing information about their gut which targeted therapy of the underlying cause of their symptoms.

I'm so grateful to see my clients take charge of their health! It's rewarding to watch clients move from feeling or being in poor or less than optimal health to radiant, glowing, and full of energy!
