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 is 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.
