Working with me

This is a very brief overview, not personal advice.

No health problem exists in a vacuum. Candidiasis affects every major system in the body, (digestion, immunity, endocrine and nervous) so I will help you figure out ways to get to the root of the problem while rebuilding and strengthening those systems using diet, supplements, herbs and lifestyle.

I am accepting clients right now. I am available through Zoom meeting or in person at my home office in Cocolalla, ID. Make an appointment today!


I do not diagnose or treat disease, I educate on the use of diet, supplements, herbs, and lifestyle to invigorate the body's innate healing ability.
