I am a person who has journeyed through autoimmunity all of my life. Surrounded by family members whom I now understand were probably battling autoimmunity all of their lives, we’ve gone from underground and under-diagnosed into the light of understanding only in recent years, when I was forced to look not only at my own needs or those of the previous generation, but to the next, when the children started to suffer. When my son was diagnosed with a serious, life-altering autoimmune condition that threatened to take not only his quality of life, but whole organs I knew he needed to thrive, it was time to dig beyond the few modalities I’d engaged to maintain my own health and really get down to root causes through a different approach. We needed an approach that would be more effective than the pharmaceutical drugs that were already making him more sick with every step-up in protocol prescribed through the conventional medical system.

Enter functional medicine
Enter long nights of research, study and experimentation; inquiry and observation. I put to use my decades of experience in one of the world’s leading technology companies as a client-centric, research-driven business development professional with a rare persistence and attention to detail together with coaching credentials I’d pursued as an avocation to uncover, pursue, and coach an approach that’s not discussed in any of the physician, hospital, surgical, or specialist recommendations we’d encountered. I witnessed the turnaround from life-threatening to life-saving sustainability that the healing-based approach of functional medicine can bring. I am now a strategist, a communicator — you might even call me an evangelist — of this approach. And so the online community of was born.

We’re on a mission to achieve remission
Through a functional medicine approach to autoimmunity, remission is possible; improved quality of life is probable. We want to help you achieve it.
