Have you been waiting for the opportunity to work with me individually?

Are you ready to take a deep dive into the root cause of your health decline?
Are you ready for action?

Working with me, you’ll learn what factors are impacting your organs and helping them do their job or not.

You’ll find out how your gut is working and how to fix it, and how your immune cells, which should be protecting you from infection risk and cancer risk, are instead are attacking and damaging your body.

You’ll learn how to boost your mitochondria so they can make enough energy for you to get through the day, think clearly, and maintain stable moods, a strong heart, and/or healthy vision.

You’ll discover how balanced your hormones are and how structurally sound parts of your body are, including cell membranes, bones, ligaments, and other crucial parts of your body. 

The core of Functional Medicine and the Wahls Protocol® is understanding how your specific family history interacted with the lifetime of food choices, activity levels, and environmental exposures to lead you to your current state of health.

If you’re ready to work with me, I can help you begin righting your ship, personally teaching you how to create a healthier environment for your cells so they can rebuild a healthier you, cell by cell. 

The fact is, over time all chronic diseases are progressive. More symptoms develop. Higher doses of medicines are needed. Then more medicines are added. More disease states develop.  You have more trouble functioning at work and at home. Life becomes more and more difficult for you and your family. 

The emotional cost of suffering is enormous, regardless of the specific diagnosis. And then there’s the cost in dollars and cents. Prescription medications for autoimmune issues now cost $42,000 to $100,000 per year, for life!

If your chronic disease keeps progressing despite following your doctor’s orders faithfully, this may be your program.

If you’re tired of being prescribed a pill for every ill and still getting steadily worse, this may be just what you’re looking for.

If you’re frustrated, angry, and feel like no one cares, perhaps this is what you need.

Conventional medicine treats the symptoms; it never examines why you became ill. It never examines the root cause of your poor health. It never examines how your genes interacted with your life to create the health you have. It never examines what you can do to restore healthy function of your cells so that your cells can rebuild a healthier you.

The bottom line is conventional medicine does not make you well.
Only your cells have the potential to make you well.

Yes, you will still need to do the work, but do you know what work you should be doing?
Do you know how to find your internal motivation?
That is what you need to learn.

That is what you need to do to become well, and that is the premise of the Wahls Protocol® and Functional Medicine.
That is what I want to teach you.

What to expect out of the Wahls Protocol® Health Optimization Program

I will personally review your specific health history to create a detailed understanding of your unique health timeline, your health issues, and your symptoms to understand the root causes of why your cells are not working well. Then I will outline a plan to evaluate and understand the root causes of your current health issues. Once that is complete, together we will develop a road map for improving how your cells function and how you can steadily reduce your pain, improve your mood and memory, normalize your blood sugar and pressure, and get you back to a healthy weight.  

This is essentially a road map for reducing your need for prescription medication. A road map for youthening, that is, reversing the accelerated aging that is part of all chronic disease. 

Again, this is not for everyone. 

I have room for just a handful of clients who are ready for this intensive evaluation and support.   Hundreds have been contacting me, asking and pleading for the chance to work with me. I’m delighted to finally have the opportunity to work with those who are ready to take action. 

Your complete application includes your name, address, main problem for which you want help, email contact for scheduling a phone call to go over the details of your health with one of my team members, and application fee. The application fee to hold your place in line is $497.
This payment will be applied to the cost of the 6-month program.
