hello

I'm glad you're here :)

I'm Nicola, a Functional Nutritionist with a special interest in lab testing and getting to the root cause of symptoms and diagnosis. 

My passion for investigating beyond the symptom started with my own health struggles and lack of support from traditional medicine. 

Your results are my results, because I've been in your shoes, and I believe that well women change the world for the better.

my story

At 25 years old I opened a wellness spa, with the intention of helping others find balance. 

That was the beginning of losing my own balance. 

The stress and long hours of growing a business and managing a team were hard on me.

 

Over the course of a few years my health fell apart. 

 

I gained 30 lbs, I wasn't sleeping, I had chronic joint pain, digestive issues, cystic acne, migraines and extremely painful periods.  I looked much older than I was and people often asked me if I was feeling ok.  I went to the doctor periodically for this symptom or that and was always met with either a medication to match the symptom, or was told that this was just part of being a woman or getting older. 

 

At this point I was still working in the treatment room as an Esthetician and Massage Therapist and seeing my own experience with modern medicine mirrored in my client's experiences. 

We were all getting sicker and being given band aids disguised as solutions. 

I was doing the best I could to help my clients manage their chronic pain and skin conditions, but felt that I lacked the tools to go deeper with them, and with myself.  I didn't want to manage symptoms.   I wanted to eliminate them.

 

That was the beginning of my deep dive into holistic nutrition and functional medicine.  I went back to school and started putting what I was learning into practice. 

The more I learned, the healthier I got. 

The excess weight dropped off, my cystic acne turned into glowing skin, my Endometrosis and PCOS went into remission and my digestion was amazing!  I began incorperating what I had learned into sessions with my chronic pain and acne clients with great success.  I knew that I was onto something, and quickly realized that I wanted to spend all of my time helping women take control of their health. 

Several years later I sold my wellness spa to go all in with health consulting. 

At 37 years old, I feel and look better than I did at 27.  It's a dream come true to spend my days helping women find optimum health, so thank you for being here.

I look forward to walking this journey with you.

x Nicola
