You have the power to live a life beyond your
You have the power to live a life beyond your own comprehension.
You are the key to your greatest potential
Being in discomfort, pain or constantly tired will always rob you of a full and deeply satisfying life. It robs you of being fully alive and here in the present moment.
If we don’t do the groundwork to first understand and then take full care of ourselves, we will never reach a full, vibrant and happy existence.
Putting yourself and your whole health first is a rebellious, radical act for the busy, modern woman. And, it holds the key to your greatest potential.
Choosing to work on yourself and your health, then, is not a sign of a weakness or something that is broken. It is a sign of strength and maturity.
Your body. Your health. Your truth. Your life.
I will, first and foremost, investigate with you, not to you. This is a collaborative process where I am as much working to understand you as I am to help you understand your body.
My approach walks the line between science and art. Between physiology and emotion. Between mind, body and soul. It is gentle, careful, rigorous and intentional. I integrate all of my research, learnings and techniques into carefully designed programs to get you to the outcomes you really want.
I use functional lab testing, in-depth health history assessment, targeted detox protocols, intuitive coaching, personalized supplementation, trauma and nervous system regulation, plant medicine and responsible microdosing, nutrition, cycle tracking, seasonal cycling, womb healing and more.
What is functional
Reveal your root cause(s)
FDN is a holistic approach to health that uses functional lab testing and an integrative approach based on your personal situation to find the right solutions for you as an individual. As your FDN practitioner, I join you on your health journey as an ally, advocate, and personal health detective.
I use some of the world’s most advanced hormone and health testing science available to us to get to the bottom of your symptoms. By testing, instead of guessing, we avoid unnecessary frustration and establish a health plan that is specifically tailored to your bio-individuality.
Health Rebuilding Program
Some areas we might investigate are the Hormones, Immune system, Digestive system, Detoxification system, Energy production, and Nervous system to get a clearer picture of the underlying (or H.I.D.D.E.N) stressors affecting your health.
Then, we formulate an individualized health rebuilding program designed to nourish, cleanse and support your body based on your specific needs. As an FDN-P, I’m not a Doctor. Nor do I wish to be one.
I will help you identify malfunctions that are often overlooked in traditional medicine.
Will this work for you?
Many of my clients come to me suffering with things like; chronic fatigue, unexplainable extreme exhaustion, brain fog, infertility, headaches, acne, digestive problems, chronic pain, excruciatingly painful periods or no period at all, unexplained weight gain or loss, mold toxicity or recurrent miscarriages and more.
I have helped clients in the most extreme circumstances (like heavy metal toxicity or breast implant illness) to the more everyday discomforts (like burnout) and everything in between.
Every woman has
one thing in common...
Most doctors who they’ve worked with before me have prescribed medications, pills and methods that are designed to simply mask the problem.
In our quick-fix addicted modern society, nobody is looking for the underlying root cause. There is one thing I can promise you about working with me: you probably haven’t experienced an approach to healing as comprehensive or thorough as this before and if I can’t help you, I will point you in the direction of someone who can.
I love how I move through the day unbloated,
It keeps my energy level without big dips.”
Here’s what I believe
Listen to natural intelligence
Get to the root
We have a choice
And, I believe that we’ve got it
the wrong way around.
And, I’m here to help you
carefully do exactly that.

The healing journey can be exhausting, and guessing without getting answers can be an endless pursuit.
Understanding exactly what needs support and what is not functioning optimally can give you the knowledge and answers you deserve. The culprit(s) behind your health challenges could be an imbalance in your adrenals, liver, thyroid, sex hormones, environmental toxins or gut (to name a few of the usual suspects)
If you need a diagnosis and a prescription, you go to your doctor. If you want someone to look deeper into what is dysfunctioning in your body, then you seek out a Functional Health Practitioner like me.
Functional lab testing is a different way to approach health and wellness. These tests are not looking for disease! They are looking for internal stressors, healing opportunities, and ways to optimize.
If you’re left feeling unheard, confused, and unsatisfied with the answers you’re receiving from traditional methods of investigation, this is when functional lab assessment is strongly indicated.
Here is a list of a wide array of commonly misunderstood symptoms that functional lab testing can support.
Here Are The Functional Labs
That I Use
(My Favorite Functional Labs)
“Research overwhelmingly indicates that gut health impacts overall health. The gut microbiome, in particular, plays a critical role in mediating the effects of diet and other factors on health, including digestive, immune, metabolic and neuroendocrine functions. Assessing GI health with the proper tools can help practitioners get to the root cause of chronic illness.”
“The GI-MAP (Microbial Assay Plus) is unique in the field of comprehensive stool testing. It relies exclusively on quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) technology to detect parasites, bacteria, fungi, and more, by targeting the specific DNA of the organisms tested.”
– Diagnostic Solutions Lab
The gut is your “second brain” due to a massive innervation of neurons called the enteric nervous system. The health of the gut can have major effects on systemic functions such as gut as the immune, endocrine, and digestive systems; as well as emotions and energy levels. Sometimes the symptoms of an imbalance in the gut can be far removed from the source. Repairing and rebuilding the microbiome health in the GI tract is an important part of the work we will do together. A test like the GI-Maps allows us to know exactly what needs to be rebalanced.
DUTCH COMPLETE, PLUS,
OR CYCLE MAP
(Dried Urine Stress and Sex Hormone Profile)
“The DUTCH Complete is the most advanced hormone test, offering an extensive profile of sex and adrenal hormones and melatonin, along with their metabolites, to identify symptoms of hormonal imbalances. Easily collected in the comfort of your own home, samples are then sent to our lab to be processed.”
– Precision Analytical Labs
The endocrine system is a symphony of hormones that are really singing our song out loud. When this system is not in balance, or homeostatic state, the whole body is affected. Finding out exactly which hormones are “out of tune” will inform us how to guide the body back to a balanced state.
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis
(Essential Mineral and Heavy Metal Profile)
This lab provides insight on mineral and toxic metal levels and how well the body is currently able to excrete toxic metals.
HTMA tests the follow marker and many more:
Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, Phosphorus, Nickel, Cobalt, Molybdenum, Lithium, Boron, Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, Aluminum.
Heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiency is a prevalent hidden stressor that can be a root cause of many of today’s commonly misunderstood symptoms. Testing will allow us to identify how metal toxicity and/or mineral deficiency are contributing to health problems or rule out these factors as potential suspects.
“This test is ideal for patients who might be suffering from delayed reactions to certain foods. Using an antibody-based food sensitivity test can help prioritize the necessary foods to eliminate and create a customized diet plan around a person’s specific needs.”
– Vibrant Wellness
It can be challenging to know which foods are truly supporting our health and well being. Even those that are very intuitive with their bodies can have a hard time sensing the immune reactions that occur with food sensitivities. In some cases, negative reactions are caused by our favorite foods that we eat every day.
When the body is in a state of inflammation, the food we eat can hurt or help our healing progress. Running a comprehensive food sensitivity panel provides information that allows me to design a customized diet that will decrease inflammation, heal the mucosal barrier of the small intestine, and can support any health goal you may have.
Organic Acid Test
Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
Looking at blood chemistry markers through the lens of functional ranges and proper test timing makes this lab an incredibly useful tool for understanding the root cause of symptoms. Especially when trying to receive proper understanding of endocrine functioning such as thyroid and sex hormones.
When you are outside of the Western Standard Ranges for Blood Chemistry, then your doctor is usually ready to offer a diagnosis and treatment.
Functional ranges are used to catch you before you get to that extreme point! They are used to shed light on your current symptoms and give you guidance on how to optimize your health.
If you are being told that “everything is normal” in your blood work and you know there is something wrong, then I highly recommend you have a functional practitioner review your labs for deeper insights.
I was on a host of medications for each of these symptoms, and levothyroxine more generally for my thyroid (I was averaging 10 pills a day) and my symptoms worsening still, yet each check up with my endocrinologist who reviewed my blood work would tell my my TSH was in a good low range and my Hashimotos was under control.
I wish I would have begun working with Luna years ago, but I suppose I needed to get to this level of brokeness and frustration to finally abandon my faith in our medical care system and prioritize paying out of pocket for functional medicine care.
