In 2013, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Even though I adhered to a gluten-free diet, my health continued to decline. I experienced brain fog, chronic fatigue, IBS, and joint pain. My depression and anxiety had spiraled so far out of control I would rarely leave my home. Conventional medicine provided me with a handful of pills, a lot of debt, and no answers. After five years of tirelessly researching and seeking a variety of treatment modalities help to relieve my symptoms, I was able to regain my health through an integrative approach that included functional medicine, customized nutrition, and trauma-informed therapy.
