The majority of us just want to lose weight on keto, but are frustrated when our efforts go unnoticed by our body. We reduce calories, count our macros, stay “on plan” for weeks and weeks, and nothing. What’s at play here? Why isn’t your body responding? It’s not what you think! Okay, so you’ve been…

Keto has numerous benefits, such as blood sugar balance, weight loss, and better brain function. But unfortunately, many keto newbies struggle with digestive issues and keto flu as they try to enter ketosis. These are the first barriers keeping people from reaping the benefits of keto.
How imbalanced electrolytes can throw off everything in your body. I had a client come to me recently with fainting spells coupled with high blood pressure. Let’s call him, Jim. During his “attacks” Jim would get super dizzy, nearly pass out, and when tested, his blood pressure was high.
I’ve worn my fair share of continuous glucose monitors (CGM) over the years. I’ve seen apps come and go, and others completely rise to the occasion. Are you looking to use a CGM for your personal health goals and you’re not sure which to choose? I’m hoping these details can help!
There’s a lot of misconception around insulin, glucose, HbA1c, and what these markers tell you about your metabolic, and overall health. The goal isn’t always, “the lower the better”. Grab your most-recent panel, and I’ll show you how to make sense of your blood work!
My experience with parasites, mold & metals – a HUGE issue in my health journey.
Did you know, you can look at your regular ‘ol blood work panel (the one your doctor has ran for you) and pinpoint functional issues you may be having? Yup! Why doesn’t the doctor see them?

We’re having a blast talking about blood work. We’ve covered: an introduction to blood chemistry (why it’s important and what we’re looking at), and the answers we can glean from a basic blood panel (especially if that panel has a CBC w/ differential and a CMP-14)
We’re all seeking answers about our health, it seems. Whether we should be eating more carbs, or more protein, less fat, more fat… whether we should do aerobic or anaerobic activity, what nutrients we actually need, what probiotics we would benefit from…
Standard blood work has A LOT of answers in it. Unfortunately, most people see it as a diagnostic tool. But it is far more than this! Using functional ranges, we can glean various answers from a standard panel that can help us understand our health and overall needs, cellularly.
