Functional Nutrition Consulting, Counseling, and Education

Hi! I’m Heather

I’m a nutrition consultant helping women suffering with autoimmunity and chronic illness take control and recover their health through education, data-driven nutritional therapy, and strategic lifestyle design.

I’m passionate about informed consent, bodily autonomy, and healthcare authorship and I’m on a mission to educate the world!

I’ve learned so much through my healing journey. I was able to recover my health from vulvar cancer, Hashimoto’s, and lichen sclerosus. I also reversed estrogen dominance, insulin resistance, arteriosclerosis, and fatty liver.

I used a food-as-medicine approach alongside integrated clinical treatment to heal myself. Now, I’m paying it forward and helping others heal themselves with nutrition consulting and lifestyle design services.

Recent Recipes

My approach to food is centered around three main principles that I believe are universal for all bodies to achieve optimal health. Whole Food. Proper Preparation. Nutrient Density. All of my recipes are centered around these three principles.

I love to cook! I develop recipes so you don’t have to worry about what to eat. Just follow the recipe!
