Hi, I'm Jinjer
CFNC & Holistic Health Practitioner
Food is Medicine! Just like people have unique medicinal needs, people have unique nutritional needs. Functional nutrition involves evaluating each person’s history, signs and symptoms, diagnoses, habits and more to create a therapeutic plan. The first step is to identify a baseline, followed by customized recommendations based upon your root- causes so that you can feel your best through a "food is medicine" approach.
The gap in our current medical model doesn't always assess or treat chronic conditions. That's where I step in to help provide the missing links. Your symptoms are unique to your body and I help with bio-individual diets and lifestyle modifications as there isn't a "one-size-fits-all" approach to every health challenge.
Whether your focus is digestive health, weight loss, autoimmunity, regulating blood-sugar balance, thyroid, adrenal or liver health, my goal is to bring you back to homeostasis and regain optimal health. There is a lot you can do once you understand what's going on in your body and I help support this process of exploration. There are symptoms that the standard treatments alone do not address. Instead of treating these symptoms, I like to ask, why this is happening and develop a specific plan for you. It's helpful to have support and I'd like to walk you through this journey together!
Together, we partner, to not just manage illness but to bring you back to balance and restore wellness.
I understand everyone has different health experiences and I work with root cause resolution to get people back to feeling their best. Health shouldn't just be managed. Treating symptoms with a band-aid approach is not okay. I look at the system, and not just the symptom, which is a functional approach to better health. Let's do this together!
What people are saying about me...
"I have suffered from Chrohn's disease my entire life. I've always turned to a holistic alternative to medication but until I started working with Jinjer I didn't realize how many aspects of life go into healing. I started working with Jinjer two years ago and I have not had any episodes since. I have learned about what goes into my digestive cycle that affects my life and taken control."

Jinjer put me on a Digestion program (personalized to my situation) and supported me through each phase. Jinjer was consistent in searching out obstacles and options through food and natural supplements to overcome problems I faced in reaching my goals. When I was diagnosed with Candida she set up a comprehensive protocol to counter the overgrowth. I learned so much along the way. She is steadfast in her encouragement and motivation, gently diligent in keeping me on task. More critically, she dealt with all my symptoms and provided options to address them. Jinjer's amazing! I'm exceedingly grateful to her guidance and encouragement grounded in research, current best practice, and enthusiasm upbeat motivation towards health and wellness. Jinjer met me where I was at. She was patient (yet persistent) when my lack of self discipline intercepted my progress. Jinjer offered personalized steps forward that were specific to me and my life situation. I've never worked with anyone so willing and faithful to go the long haul in recovering from over 10 years of digestive issues, food sensitivities, celiac diagnosis, candida and blood sugar regulation. I STRONGLY recommend Jinjer (5 superstars!) and hope you'll set up an appointment with her. Thanks to Jinjer I'm certain my food choices are healthier and moving in the right direction, towards resolving long-term gut issues. I'm sure others will benefit too.

When I started working with Jinjer I knew I was pretty healthy, I wanted help with aging and learning to take the best care of my body.
My medical doctors weren't interested in the whole picture, to include diet, supplements and detoxing. Jinjer is so knowledgeable and worked with me to fill in the pieces.
I learned about the subtleties and benefits of foods, many I was already eating, she just made it work better. Plus, losing 10 pounds was an added bonus. The path she set me on was very attainable and really works with my lifestyle."
