Carrie believes the body can heal itself given the right nutrition and care. What people don’t realize is that only through knowing your genetics can you prioritize your own well-being. The world is telling you to eat this food or follow that diet, but your genes may be saying no.
Carrie’s health challenges began as a kid. She struggled with allergies, recurring strep throat, constipation, and kidney stones. Her struggles continued into adulthood with fatigue, back pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility. In search of answers, she threw her time and attention into self-healing.
