I was sick.

I am an experienced health coach, trained at Duke Integrative Medicine.

I was deeply sick for about eight years.  

My symptoms included:
  • Muscle weakness
  • Brain fog
  • Debilitating fatigue
  • Couldn’t sleep
  • Couldn’t digest food well
  • Couldn’t concentrate on anything
  • Extremely low body temperature
  • Days of recovery after the smallest physical effort

I desperately tried to hide how bad my symptoms were.

So I became a student of every healing path I could find:

  • I saw MDs
  • I saw Functional Medicine Doctors
  • I saw alternative health practitioners
  • I had costly blood work, thousands of dollars spent
  • I studied yoga, qi-gong, & meditation
  • I tried advice from dozens & dozens of online health discussion groups
  • I tested hundreds of supplements
  • I tested most diets
  • I studied the leaders (gurus) of nearly every health movement
  • I read countless books, articles, and scientific studies about nutrition, diet, and chronic illness
  • I spent nearly a decade undergoing endless conversations with other sufferers, looking for clues about metabolism, digestion, bio-physics, immunity, gut health, circadian rhythms, mold, EMF, and more…

I spent long stretches unable to work — burning through savings — unable to decipher why I felt so terrible.

Here’s how it all began:

In 2007, after completing a BA in Economics from Western Kentucky University, I began working at a local corporate headquarters. In 2008, I moved to Nashville, TN to play music.

Within a year, I found myself struggling deeply with a litany of health issues that forced me entirely out of music — and away from a normal life — for nearly a decade.

I spent virtually all of my free time studying every aspect of health I could find.  The scientific literature, PubMed citations, biology textbooks, and PhDs and MDs publications, and online “health gurus” — every topic from digestion to mental health.  I meticulously implemented most of the ideas, diets, and supplemental regimens of every respected or popular thinker available — to, usually, subpar results.

Through extensive trial and error, I learned precisely what each method had to offer me — and what they didn’t.


I explored the benefits — and pitfalls — of focusing on:

  • gut health
  • diets
  • metabolic health
  • thyroid health
  • sick building syndrome
  • mold
  • EMF
  • nutrition
  • mineral balancing
  • therapeutic light
  • circadian rhythm
  • the body electric
  • the mental approach to healing
Here’s the kicker:

It wasn’t until I put all the pieces together that I began to make real, sustainable progress.

…and that’s what I’d love to help you do:

Make real sustainable progress.

By putting the pieces together.

It all comes down to this:  

There may be multiple areas
— and big pitfalls —
to be aware of
to give yourself the best chance to heal.

We can do many things well, but if we skip what’s important we limit our ability to recover.  

When we’re sick, the things we overlook can be game-changers.
