I'm Jaime, a Functional Nutritionist.
My mission is to help you address the root causes to your chronic digestion, skin & weight concerns so that you can feel fabulous while optimizing your health for the long-term.
My journey to becoming a Functional Nutritionist began many years ago while searching for relief from my own health challenges. In my early 20's I was experiencing chronic digestive issues, emotional roller coasters, acne, and at 25 was diagnosed with a life-altering auto-immune disorder, Type 1 Diabetes. The help that I received from conventional medicine did very little to improve my conditions and left me questioning our society's current approach to healthcare. The root causes to our symptoms are rarely addressed and instead we are only offered medication or surgery as the "solution" to our ailments.
We have been taught from a very young age to think that if we don't have a diagnosis or treatment plan from a medical doctor then we are doomed to stay sick and suffer. But the truth is that YOU HAVE SO MUCH POWER OVER YOUR OWN HEALTH! I learned this first-hand during my own health journey. After years of suffering my intuition guided me to finally seek a more integrative approach to addressing my concerns. Thanks to a wonderful acupuncturist who encouraged me to try a 30 day elimination diet, I soon discovered that many of my symptoms were actually rooted in poor digestion, a diet high in inflammatory foods and a constant stream of stress.
It took time and dedication, but within a few months my skin cleared up, my depression and brain fog went away and my chronic bloating and constipation was gone! I was so relieved that something as simple as changing my diet and prioritizing movement & stress management could have such a drastic effect on every aspect of my health. It made me wonder why hadn't these options been brought to my attention before? Especially after so many years of doctor's visits and medications.
Despite my frustration, I was ecstatic that I now understood that IT WAS UP TO ME TO DECIDE IF I WANTED TO MAKE CHOICES THAT WOULD SUPPORT OR SABOTAGE MY HEALTH. I couldn't consider myself just a victim to what was happening within my own body. I eventually used this new empowered mindset as motivation to seek a formal education in Functional Nutrition with a specialty in digestion and gut healing. This education has enabled me to truly grasp an understanding of how each of the body systems work together to maintain over-all health. And when one system is off balance it causes a cascading effect on all other systems in the body, resulting in the majority of the most common health issues seen today.
