My Story

As a former computer programmer and current nutritional therapist, I combine my passion for nutrition with my interest in finding healthy ways to incorporate technology into our daily lives. 
Just like you, I’ve been bombarded most of my life by the hype around “what to eat”; the so called dietary "facts" and never ending parade of fads. 

I ate mostly organic foods but had bought into the low fat/low salt propaganda.  I learned some half truths about soy which did help my PMS but nearly destroyed my gut. Artificial sweeteners made their way onto my plate. And I never gave any thought to non-food toxins, especially all the technology I was using and designing.  I gained 10 pounds every 5 years until I reached 200 pounds while trying several weight loss schemes.  And after reaching the age of 45, my body seemed to start falling apart.

In 2003 at the age of 48, I was on a business trip to Tucson working with 2 other software developers. We were in the middle of working when I began feeling queasy so I decided to lie down on the sofa while we continued. Bad idea!  I felt this pressure on my chest that kept increasing; started sweating and just not feeling right. I finally stopped the 2 of them and said that something was wrong and that it felt like a huge weight on my chest. Next thing I knew I was in an ambulance on the way to the local hospital.  I had the whole workup in the ER and spent the night in observation only to be told the next day is was probably just gas.

Five years and many similar episodes later, a few months after taking early retirement, I was finally diagnosed with a gallbladder so stuffed with gallstones that it was extended beyond its regular size.

Of course my doctor recommended surgery. Despite knowing next to nothing about nutrition and how the body works, I felt this strong intuition that surgery was NOT the path for me. I refused the surgery and started on a path of self-learning and self-healing. Eventually I realized I needed to know the whole nutrition picture, not just the bits and pieces I picked up in my self-guided research. So in 2012 I went back to school to become a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I continued with my studies earning certifications as a GAPS Practitioner and Restorative Wellness Practitioner. Now I help families use nutrition and lifestyle modifications to help restore their health.

In December 2017 I began my journey into the science of electromagnetic frequencies and health.  My studies have convinced me that this under recognized class of toxins can be a major factor in the health of my clients.

No one should have to go through the several years of experiencing symptoms and the hit-or-miss, trial-and-error healing journey that I went through. No one!  That's why I created Inner Wisdom Nutrition.
