Discovering Your Best 

is a comprehensive functional practice, offering diagnostic testing, wellness programs, and transformational coaching for lasting change.

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition or FDN, is a type of detective work that seeks to identify the underlying causes of symptoms such as weight gain, hair loss, fatigue. Some clients come to us with simply a feeling of “something isn’t right” or generally feel “crummy”! 

Using functional lab work and a comprehensive health history review, we identify healing opportunities and engage each client in a health building process! We are convenient and work with you via Skype, phone, or in-person!

Have You Experienced This?

Things don’t seem the same, yet you don’t know what it is. Perhaps you’ve gained weight without reason, or you slip into an anxious state without an anxiety provoking event? Maybe you toss and turn more at night and good sound sleep isn’t the same as it once was. Has your hair become dull or thinned?

All the labs and the doctors say everything is “normal” and maybe you were handed a prescription for anxiety, or sleep.  Sex? You’d rather have a glass of wine and those prescriptions aren’t helping or just mask those symptoms.

Oh sure, you can still rock at work because you’ve worked hard to get where you are in life and you’ve paid your dues, right? You have a career, are financially secure and perhaps your children are grown or are getting ready for college and life should be good, and it is right?

Yet, there is this thought that is quietly playing in your head along with the million thoughts that seem to be jockeying to get your attention, and it whispers, “what about me?” Or then there is another thought, the one that’s more frightening, and you may be afraid to say, “Am I going crazy?”  YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!!

“It’s far more important to know what person the disease has, than what disease the person has.”
Hippocrates’s wisdom is worth pondering. I’m making chicken soup with some healing herbs for my husband today. One in particular is turmeric.
Turmeric is warm and drying and it will serve him well today as he has a cold. Finding wellness isn’t always in a pill or supplement.
When working with herbs, it is best to understand the energetics of the person and the plant. Visit us at www.DiscoveringYourBest.com<http://www.DiscoveringYourBest.com>

What’s for breakfast? You always want to cover your macronutrients with each meal or snack. I’ve sometimes added a bit of butter to my oatmeal for fat, but you can add MCT oil, a bit of coconut oil tastes great as well. Have you ever tried a nut butter in oatmeal?

It's a fact that the nutrients and minerals are depleted in our topsoil, and our factory farmed foods are sprayed with pesticides. That combined with our digestive health, diets, genetics, prescription use and more, we can be left with depleted nutrients and/or minerals.

Many people will grab a bottle of generic vitamins while at the grocery store or the pharmacy or warehouse shopping.
I have found that many of these inexpensive off shelf supplements are often subpar. Why? Because they largely include synthetic nutrients or a version of a nutrient that has low bio-availability. They may have chemical and/or allergenic additives, flavorings, transfats, artificial color or stripped version of nutrients!!! If you have any doubt, I suggest that you read the ingredients and look them up.
This is why I like good top tier supplements to achieve the desired absorption results. They don't use fillers, binders or coatings and offer a wide array of hypoallergenic options for maximum absorption. All of their products are gluten free!
These top tier options will not be found in local stores, large scale vitamin shops, or large scale outlets.
So where can you get them? Some local health food stores may carry them or holistic pharmacies may as well. Another and likely most convenient option is to order online.
So what companies are considered top tier? Well, there are quite a few, and while I like all of them for many varied reasons, I usually look to Pure Encapsulations for those with allergies.
Other top tier are Thorne Research, Metagenics, Designs for Health, Integrative Therapeutics, Allergy Research, Life Extension. I have a long list so this is not all inclusive.
I also have a bottom of the barrel list too, and that is why I don't just ask my clients what vitamins they are taking, but also what brands.

If you would like to setup an online account to order top tier supplements and receive my special pricing, look in my bio or check out my website.

There are numerous contributors to insomnia, from thyroid dysregulation, HPA axis dysfunction, blood sugar management, bacteria or parasites, hormone imbalance, anxiety, depression, environmental factors, nutrient deficiencies and more.
Did you know that people sleep 20% less today than they did over 100 years ago? Highway statistics show that 100,000 vehicle accidents happen each year as a result of drowsy driving?
Insomnia can leave you feeling desperate, and make poor decisions. If you are having difficulty, go to our bio and schedule a FREE 30 minute consultation.

BALANCE ESTROGEN NATURALLY WITH DIM
WHAT IS DIM?
Cruciferous vegetables like kale, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and broccoli have a naturally occurring compound called indole-3-carbinol (I3C).
During digestion, we metabolize I3C into diindolylmethane or DIM for short. DIM is useful in estrogen related problems like hormonal acne, PMS, menopause symptoms, and excess belly fat. DIM helps with hormone balance by modulating estrogen metabolism and detoxification. Estrogen is metabolized by the liver through three different pathways. Depending on the pathway, estrogen will be converted into “good” or “bad” metabolites. Good estrogen metabolites help maintain healthy breast tissue, balance moods, and increase sex drive, while bad estrogen metabolites contribute to weight-gain, candida, autoimmune and certain cancers. Eating DIM is a safe and natural way to support healthy liver metabolism and protect yourself from the harmful effects of bad estrogen metabolites! As an 11 year breast cancer survivor, I wish I would have known about it before being diagnosed with an estrogen receptive cancer.

Did you know that about 85% of the caffeine in tea is dissolved in the first 45 to 60 seconds of steeping? If you love tea, but want to cut down on the caffeine, steep tea for one minute. Then pour out the liquid and discard. Next, pour fresh water back into the cup or pot and steep for the usual time (2-4 minutes).

While there really isn’t any measurable amount of phytoestrogens found in beer, it’s what happens after drinking it. This is where our body converts a compound in beer called isoxanthohumol into estrogenic 8-prenylnaringenin. Whew! Basically estrogenic effect. #highheelsandhormones #dyblittleblackdress #stepintoqueen #discoveringyourbest #dyb ...

Your skin is the gateway to your bloodstream! Toxins in the form of skin care and beauty products are generously applied and absorbed into our system, without our consent! Our first step for protection is to read ingredients and learn to recognize what can harm us. The word fragrance sounds sweet, but is generally toxic and should be avoided. The term fragrance or perfume is typically used in place of the chemical known as phthalate. Phthalate’s use is varied but it is primarily used to hold a scent to your hair or skin. What fragrance, or really, phthalates are synthetic estrogens, and are linked to weight gain, hormone disruption and infertility! If you are unsure about your beauty products, I often use resources on EWG.org. We discuss this in depth in our Signature and Mastery High Heels and Hormones Little Black D.R.E.S.S. programs.

When seeking to balance hormones, we look at our gut health too. Functional medicine has long held the belief that all disease begins in the gut. When restoring wellness for any imbalance, the gut is an essential place to start. Visit our bio for how to Restore Your Gut Health. ✅ 70 million people suffer from digestive issues.[1]
✅ An estimated 15 million Americans have food allergies…whether they realize it or not (and most don’t).[2]
✅ Your gut health makes up 70% of your immune system; therefore, if your immune system is chronically compromised, it’s likely due to poor gut health.
✅ Your gut is referred to as your body’s second brain—if that’s not enough to convince you of its importance, what is?
✅ Poor gut health causes or contributes to auto-immune diseases, hormonal imbalance, mental illness, diabetes, weight gain, skin issues and countless other problematic conditions.
✅ Once you rebuild the health of your gut, the rest of you will respond in kind.

Hormones are chemical messengers that affect all aspects of your overall health.
The hormones made by our endocrine system are like a symphony. They must play in tune for you to be healthy, and when there is an imbalance in one hormone, the others compensate trying to seek balance. Thus, they too, become imbalanced.
Hormones affect every tissue and organ in the body. They impact everything from gut function, muscle growth and recovery, bone health, and brain function.
When hormones get out of whack, there can be far reaching consequences in terms of symptoms and effects. Understanding the roles and proper function of hormones will provide you with the context for what’s going on when there’s an imbalance.

Sleep is a crucial part of balancing hormones! I like natural ways to facilitate sleep and Montmorency cherries are one great way for supporting a good nights sleep.
I ALWAYS recommend organic to avoid bringing in more toxins to your body. Eating cherries can help, and drinking Montmorency cherry juice works! I’ve tried the juice, and it really does work!
1 ounce of cherry juice added to water or drink straight should give you a help. I found that my dreams were more vivid so be aware of that. My clients swear by it.
