Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor
Nourishing Functional Health
Tessa spent a lifetime putting a bandaid over her symptoms – food sensitivities, weight gain, digestive distress, skin rashes, blood clots, you name it. By seeing every doctor and doing every diet in the book, she thought she was fixing them. Still, in reality, her body was creating more inflammation and increasing her toxic load until they became an even longer laundry list of unexplained symptoms that wouldn’t go away.
Without this discovery, though, she would not have connected that the worsening of her daughter’s symptoms was related to mold and not living having to be at home for a year. While her journey to recovery is still ongoing, she has made decent headway in healing.
Through hard work and commitment, she used the program she developed to navigate food sensitivities, help her gut work smarter, not harder, improve her body’s detox ability, and shifted her mindset. The inflammation and toxic load are decreasing, and with that, her brain fog has diminished dramatically, she has more energy to be a better mom, less pain, and her fatigue has resolved.
She has also begun to shed some weight, and her missing cycle for 2+ years has finally returned. Tessa believes that this health hurdle happened for a reason, and that reason was so that she could help her family and other women to navigate their health with support and clarity. Once you are a mom, your health often gets pushed to the side, when in reality, keeping you healthy is one of our most important jobs. Tessa works with other moms who struggle with exhaustion, brain fog, fatigue, and other unexplained symptoms by providing personalized support and solutions to overcome and thrive.
Being tired and not feeling enough is something Tessa knows all too well. Tessa is passionate about looking at the whole picture to provide clues and insight into your health. She utilizes multiple health techniques that provide a unique individualized approach to shift your health back into the zone of wellness.
