Hi! I’m Anne, a registered nurse, certified gentle sleep coach, functional medicine certified health coach, restorative wellness practitioner, positive psychology life coach, and environmental toxin specialist.
As a busy mom of three children, I know exactly what it feels like to be exhausted, spread thin, experiencing terrible digestive pain, and putting my health and needs last on my list.
In 2012, I began working as a child sleep consultant, helping new moms tackle the challenge of establishing healthy sleep patterns for their babies. What I noticed though is that long after their kids were out of the crib, moms were themselves having sleep issues, along with all kinds of other health problems like brain fog, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, and digestive issues.
I too was really struggling with painful and embarrassing digestive issues. I was desperate to fix my health! I saw several doctors who were not helpful so I began my mission to heal myself. I tried many different approaches to eating (Lowfod map, paleo, keto, carnivore, lots of variations of elimination diets). I saw nutritionists, homeopaths, naturopathic doctors and I enrolled in many certification programs.
I have tried nearly everything (it feels like- but I’m sure there’s more!) so that you don’t have to! I took parts from all the practitioners, courses, cleanses, detoxes, and diets, and my own experience to heal my gut! It’s not perfect but it’s so much better and I’ve discovered my specific needs for my body at this time in my life!
Nobody needs to struggle through this much experimentation! While there is certainly no quick fix and some trial and error is necessary, my years of struggle and determination now give me the experience to help others heal without such a long journey. I’d love to guide you through gut healing and learning the foods that work for you and so that you feel great in your skin again!
