After working with Lauren, I now have more energy, I feel balanced, and the night sweats I would get the days leading up to my period, no longer exist. I workout every single day because I now know what that does for my overall health. How I view food and what goes into my body is something I never knew how to do before. I love this practice and what you all stand for!
Functional Nutritionist, MS, CNS®, FDN-P (on maternity leave)
Lauren knows how frustrating it is to feel unwell. Her health journey started when she was born with a severe case of eczema. Doctors said she would never outgrow it, and that there was nothing to do but manage symptoms with medication. With the help of a naturopathic doctor, her eczema slowly started to reverse. After years of painful, itchy, bleeding skin, her eczema was mostly cleared up by her late teens.
Lauren has personal experience with other various health complaints including digestive issues, SIBO, painful periods, and more recently she was diagnosed with a connective tissue disorder called Ehler’s-Danlos Syndrome. Despite seeing many practitioners, her health struggles persisted. This led her to a lifelong study of health and natural medicine.
Lauren holds her M.S. in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine and has achieved the highest certification in her field, Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS®). She is also certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner® (FDN-P). She received her B.S. in Wellness and Alternative Medicine with a concentration in Mind-Body Medicine which gave her an appreciation for the role our minds and thoughts play in overall health. Lauren practiced massage therapy professionally for several years before turning her focus to nutrition.
Having personal experience with how compromised health can compromise life, and knowing that looking normal doesn’t mean feeling normal, Lauren is passionate about helping other people regain their health so that they can start living the lives they know are possible and shift from surviving to thriving.
From My Clients
I feared that the first meeting would be the practitioner telling me they either could not work with me or that I would have to make food concessions I did not want to make. Instead, Lauren is a tremendous listener and problem solver. If I have questions, she is quick to offer potential solutions I could try to see what works for me. My life is so different. I have lost weight – more than I thought possible. My blood work results are amazing. I haven’t had a single symptom of intestinal distress since beginning this journey, and that is worth everything to me. My anxiety is much lower, and I have been a much better friend and partner in my relationships because I have had more energy to focus on them. I have found that everything here is personalized to me to be sure that it truly works for me.
I was worried that the experience would be more new age or that it would involve strange, unconventional practices. But you all are super down to earth and helpful. I’ve been searching for an answer to my stomach issues for years and years. Who knew the fix was so simple and I don’t have to be on medication my whole life! I am amazed by how helpful you have been and a little ashamed that I was so hesitant. My whole life has changed for the better. I no longer suffer from chronic pain, bloating, tiredness, and generally feeling horrible all the time. I sleep so well, I don’t have to stress about food, it’s relatively simple to lose weight for the first time in my life. My mood is always great, my energy is the best it’s ever been, and I am just so thankful! I definitely recommend anyone suffering from inflammation of any kind to see you all.
I felt like my issue was “small” and didn’t really warrant an overall health assessment. However, the changes we discussed positively impacted other things I wasn’t necessarily looking at like my sleep and energy levels. Immediately I noticed improved stomach pains based on quick identification of the issue and supplements/diet change.
I thought it was just going to be a lot of the same advice that’s flooding the internet. Lauren ‘s knowledge was way beyond all of that. I felt like I was getting the help I needed the very first session. My weight is down. I have more energy. My A1C is at 5.7 instead of 7.2. I feel like I’m getting healthier. Anyone that is type 2 diabetic or struggles with metabolic syndrome should see her, or anyone that cannot figure out what the underlying root cause is for their bad health.
She helped me understand certain foods and food combinations that give health benefits! My anxiety has lessened tremendously! Once I was eating certain foods and taking supplements I noticed a change. My anxiety doesn’t come as often. I’ve lost weight which was my main goal. I feel better in my skin. My blood results 3 months later had improved my cholesterol, omega 3, etc. Believe in the process because it works!
I had already been to 15 other doctors and medical professionals only to have found some pieces of the puzzle. So, I had my doubts that anyone would be able to help me. Lauren was amazing and wasn’t pushy. Prior to working with Lauren, I was made to believe it was all or nothing and it had to be very strict. Yet she knew exactly what to do for me and was very patient with me. I like the holistic approach that is backed by scientific research. My gut health and anxiety have significantly improved. I am able to do more now than I have in years. My brain fog is almost gone, I can actually think clearly and form a sentence without getting frustrated. My mood is so much better. My thyroid antibodies have also significantly improved and my inflammation continues to get lower each month.
