black lives matter

I stand in solidarity with BIPOC & allies in denouncing police brutality, racialized violence and systemic oppression in all forms.
I may not always know the best actions to take, but I WILL take action and I will admit when I am wrong and learn from my mistakes.

"What if your health issue is actually an opportunity to emerge more resilient, in joy, in love with life, and more confident than ever?"

~ Kathleen Bauer~

why are you here?

My private practice for over a decade was focused on autoimmune conditions, digestive health and the gut-brain axis, with very left-brain pursuits of tracking food consumption, creating meal plans, and measuring and evaluating blood, stool, saliva, and urine tests. Oh and cooking classes, of course. I was a steadfast believer that the key to all health is based on what we choose to eat and that this health can be measured and tracked by lab tests. There was so much I was wrong about.


Yes, digestive health is essential and I still focus on how we choose to nourish ourselves, but see now that nourishment extends far beyond food, just as our health extends far beyond our body. That there is more to the gut-brain axis than vagus nerve operation and inflammation. That there is more to health than lab test results. There are so many lessons to be learned from dis-ease, from imbalances, from our cravings, from our twisting paths, from what we avoid and what we gravitate toward, from the choices we make and the effects they have on us, and from our stuck emotions and beliefs.
  • What have you learned on your path? Why are you here? What is your soul telling you?

  • What is your body crying out to teach you? Your bowel movements screaming at you? What is your digestive health reflecting from the rest of your life?

  • What is the purpose of your feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, stressed, in joy, at peace, carefree, and/or uncertain? What is the lesson? Are you learning or avoiding it?

  • What does changing your health without changing the conditions mean for the path that you are on?

  • What is your purpose? How are you living your passion? Where are your lessons and have you learned them?

  • Do you use food to avoid your purpose? Is your inflammation a lesson, part of your path, or a distraction?

  • What are you avoiding by avoiding food or a specific macronutrient? What hole are you trying to fill by over-eating? What are you really afraid of that food is a stand-in for?

What are you doing about answering these questions – where are you focusing your energy? If you are stuck in dis-ease, in inflammation, in digestive distress, in anxiety or depression, are you continuing to seek out the same solutions and getting the same results?
