Autoimmune & Thyroid Nutrition
Many years ago, Jasmine suffered from severe health issues resulting in multiple diagnosis's. The diagnosis's were both Grave's disease and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. She also had partial thyroidectomy and radioactive treatment years later when the surgery didn't work. Her inconclusive results motivated her to begin schooling in nutrition and begin graduate research on autoimmune diseases. She has chosen Autoimmune Thyroid Disease as her primary focus of finding nutritional problems that may be associated with the disease.
Autoimmune and Thyroid Nutrition through a Functional and Integrative Approach!
Integrative Nutrition focuses on the whole-person. With an in depth assessment and analysis of one's lifestyle, diet, and health habits; an Integrative Practitioner can nutritionally diagnose a client with either a nutritional deficiency or excess that can cause the body to spiral out of control. Integrative Nutritionists do NOT medically diagnose disease. Instead, we focus on using informed clinical evidence to achieve optimal health and healing through food and diet. Functional Nutritionists identify and address underlying problems that could be associated with already diagnosed (by your physician) disease states. Jasmine's primary goal is to use a systems-oriented approach in by focusing on interactions between the environment and GI, endocrine, and immune systems as they related to healing through diet and nutrition.
