Hi. I’m Amanda- wife to my husband, mom of 3 kids, 3 dogs, 2 cats, some beta fish and flock of egg laying hens. I spend my days somewhere between the kitchen and the car shuttling food into my family or my family to and from sports and activities. I know what it’s like to be super mom, super busy and super stressed. I also know what it’s like to slow down and support my body, soul and spirit through proper nutrition, whole foods and supplementation.
Throughout my life and well into motherhood, I have dealt with a myriad of health issues from chronic allergies and histamine intolerance to high risk pregnancies with each of my babies. Once my children were born, I dealt with their different health issues and allergies, questioning and digging deeper for answers. With each challenge, I would constantly strive to understand the why instead of just accepting things as they were. I wanted answers that no one seemed to have. The more I researched and learned, the more I started to understand the connection between nutrition and health, and that we could change our lives and our gut health through the foods we ate (or did not), and our overall health status changed dramatically. I began to make educated decisions in regards to my personal health, my family’s health, and our nutritional needs to best support our overall well-being.
Today, my family operates in a gluten free, soy free, peanut free home. We consume a variety of nutrient dense whole foods from raw dairy to grass fed pastured meat and poultry, fresh eggs from our free range chickens, tons of leafy greens and veggies from our garden or local farmer’s market, lots of good butter, lard, coconut oil and water from our local well water source. We try to eat organic and support locally sourced foods whenever we can as well as our favorite grocery stores, local farmers and markets.
As a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Restorative Wellness Practitioner, I specialize in children, teen and mom gut health. A busy mom myself, I relate to the day to day stressors of raising a family and everything that comes with it and I am on a mission to help other moms and their children get the exact help and answers they deserve when it comes to their own health journey. It’s amazing to learn and understand how much our gut health links back to our whole body health and everything in between.
When working with clients, I focus on real food, supplementation and natural living to bring a balanced holistic lifestyle to the individuals and families I work with. Together, we make the connections to understand the root cause of the issues you are dealing with. For those needing deeper work, Be Well Now Nutrition has partnered with different labs in order to get proper testing done if necessary.
I am here to help educate and support you where ever you are in your personal journey back to wellness.
