Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Restorative Wellness Practitioner

Deb is Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition® and specializes in tracking down the root causes that are keeping people from optimal health. As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and Restorative Wellness Practitioner, Deb uses lab testing, symptom tracking, and other tools to unravel the puzzle of what’s going wrong with each client’s health. She discovered her passion for nutritional therapy during her and her husband’s own health journeys through IBS, hypothyroidism/Hashimoto’s, out of control food sensitivities, plummeting hormone levels, fatigue, and Crohn’s disease. Their path back to health was challenging but hugely enlightening at the same time. They systematically identified and addressed the root causes of their symptoms and now they both feel better than they ever have in their lives and are back to doing their favorite activities, rock climbing and trail running. Deb is passionate about using her problem solving skills and clinical knowledge, combined with personal health experiences, to help others find their path to feeling awesome.

Tests Provided

Adrenal Stress Profile

It is estimated that around 90% of people have some degree of adrenal health issue due to the rampant levels of chronic stress and the go-go-go mentality of today’s society.  This test measures the level of available cortisol – the stress hormone – at four different points throughout the day to determine the strength, health, and balance of your adrenal glands.  DHEA – the precursor to the sex hormones – is also measured to determine if the ‘pregnenolone steal’ is taking place and causing hormonal imbalance.

This test is sent directly to you, done at the comfort of your home, and mailed directly to the lab.

 

Gastrointestinal Health Panel

More and more information is coming out every day about the importance of our gut bacteria and how intricately it is tied to everything we do, think, say, and feel. Without having the proper balance in your gut flora, health issues are inevitable. Digestive distress, skin breakouts, mood changes, mental disorders, fatigue, and autoimmune diseases are all quite common expressions of a disrupted microbiome. Not only that, but gut infections can represent themselves in very similar ways as well. Candida or other fungal overgrowth, parasitic and bacterial infections, gut inflammation, SIBO, and leaky gut are all serious problems that can occur within the gut and alter the state of the rest of the body.

The GI health panel checks all of these markers. Bacterial balance, dysbiosis, fungal/bacterial/parasitic growth, inflammation, and the ability of your gut to break down and absorb food are all tested. This information is invaluable and often critical in order for a person to heal.  

This test is sent directly to you, done at the comfort of your home, and mailed directly to the lab.

 

Leap – MRT Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are usually involved in the development of chronic health conditions.  And it is often because of these food sensitivities that efforts to heal aren’t effective.  Mediator Release Testing (MRT) has been proven to be the most accurate and comprehensive food sensitivity testing to identify problematic foods and food chemicals that are keeping people from getting truly well. The MRT test looks at the changes in blood when presented with a sample of 150 different foods to determine the level of reaction for that individual.  Once these foods sensitivities are known, then a specific dietary protocol can be developed with a small elimination period of these foods, and true healing can begin.

This test is sent directly to you, will be performed at your nearest blood drawing facility, and mailed directly to the lab.

 

Female Monthly Hormone Panel (Cycling & Non-Cycling)

Hormonal imbalances are more prevalent today than ever before primarily due to poor diet, stress, and an increasingly toxic world. For cycling women, this imbalance shows as menstrual irregularity, amenorrhea, painful PMS, cystic acne, weight gain and inability to lose weight, depression, anxiety, mood swings, migraines, and insomnia.  For those non-cycling women in peri-menopause or post-menopause, symptoms may also include hot flashes, osteoporosis, and a metabolic shift. 

This panel collects 11 salivary samples over the course of a client’s cycle.  Saliva contains the free fraction of hormones, or the amount of the hormone the body can actually utilize. Testing this form of hormone will provide a more accurate look into the root cause of symptoms over serum blood testing. Performing a salivary hormone panel throughout the entire month is the only way to truly see the client’s monthly hormonal rhythm and where these imbalances are occurring within the cycle in order to pinpoint healing opportunities.   

This test is sent directly to you, done at the comfort of your home over the course of a month, and mailed directly to the lab.

 

Male Hormone Panel 

Many middle-aged men experience a decline in their energy, workout capacity, muscle growth, vitality, sexual performance, hair density, and mental capacity due to a hormonal shift.   A simple saliva test can help determine where an imbalance is occurring. When supported, these symptoms can be reversed or dramatically slowed. 

This test is sent directly to you, done at the comfort of your home over the course of a month, and mailed directly to the lab.
