thyroid disease ⋅ autoimmunity ⋅ fibromyalgia ⋅ chronic fatigue

Hi, my name is Liz and it’s by no chance that you’ve landed here. You see, you and I most likely share something in common: an autoimmune or thyroid disease, or chronic pain.

Here’s what happened. In 2007, I was diagnosed with the  autoimmune thyroid disease, Hashimoto’s. I followed my doctor’s orders and took a synthetic thyroid hormone medication, to no avail. Simply put, the medication wasn’t working and my symptoms got worse and worse. I felt fat, bloated, tired, depressed, and was suffering recurrent infections, hives, changes in my hair and skin, menstrual irregularities, heart palpitations. And worst of all, it seemed like no one cared or understood how painful the illness was.

So I made some BIG changes to my diet. Now, this wasn’t just any diet — it was a functional nutritional protocol to literally fix things from the inside out. My Hashimoto’s worked its way into total un-medicated remission.

I am a Holistic Health Coach — a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned from famous doctors in the natural health world who are healing their patients with food. I now use these same functional therapeutic dietary tools to help my clients improve their health in major ways.

Maybe you’ve been following a popular diet (like Paleo, vegan, autoimmune, gluten-free, dairy-free, no nightshades, no goitrogens, grain-free, anti-candida, GAPS, or more). Has it worked? Even if you’re already eating a healthy diet, you need a second set of eyes to do the NUTRITIONAL DETECTIVE WORK and make the connections between your symptoms, genetics, and your diet. Let me do the detective work for you and figure out which foods you need to avoid for better health and which you need to start eating today!
