About Judy

I'm a wife, mama of two amazing young women, lover of innate wisdom and divine intervention, Dental Hygienist, and Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I have Hashimoto's Disease (an autoimmune disease where your body attacks the thyroid gland) and various food allergies (due to a latex allergy).

Atter I had my first beautitul baby, I always felt lousy. I look at the pictures of me and I literallv looked lifeless. I don't think that my body ever fully recovered. I then became pregnant and we lost our baby in the second trimester. No signs or symptoms. We were devastated. Gratefully, we were able to conceive shortly after and had our beautiful rainbow baby. Again, going into a pregnancy not fully recovered emotionally or physically, I wish I knew then what I know now. I wish I wasn't so tired maybe I could've seen the storm coming.

It wasn't until years later, doctors visits, tests and physicals, that I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid is under active. Phew! I finally had an answer. I began an elimination diet with my husband and a group of friends. Little did I know where this would lead me. My body responded to this really well. I lost a good amount of weight in 30 days and I now know that I cannot tolerate gluten, soy or nightshades. A year or so later, I found out that I had Hashimoto's Disease. Enter my journey to where I am today. My health journey has lead me to a new career. It was through the wonderful people who had been placed on my path to healing that I really started to notice improvement in my health. I found the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), which is an elimination specifically targeted for those who have an autoimmune disease. Within the first couple of weeks I began to see symptoms dissipate or disappear. I felt like I was alive again because as I found out, FOOD IS MEDICINE. I began to do this for others as well and thought that this may be something that I'm supposed to be doing.
