Hi! I’m Amanda, owner and Functional Nutritionist at Alimentary Wellness. I got into functional nutrition to essentially heal myself. I was tired of dealing with autoimmune disease, fatigue, brain fog and hormone imbalances. Put simply, I was a mess and medicine had only put a bandage on it. I took frequent naps during the day and couldn’t concentrate.
I found the Nutritional Therapy Association and started on my education as an NTP (Nutritional Therapy Practitioner) to learn how food can heal the body. I have since added to my certifications and training with the Restorative Wellness Solutions program.
In 2020, just as the pandemic was in full swing, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After working on my health for five years it was definitely a shock! I dove into natural treatments, the latest research, read about others who paved the way to wellness after a cancer diagnosis and once again changed the way I lived my life; from my food choices to my thought patterns.
I recently had surgery and clean scans and was given a clean bill of health. I know it’s possible to heal using the power of nutrition and the body’s ability to heal. I am here to take the guesswork out of your health and healing journey. I did it and you can, too!
