Heidi F., Nutritionist
After experiencing personal health issues and searching for answers from many doctors for extreme fatigue, Heidi did her own research on the Internet and figured out that her diet was completely insufficient. After following a regimen of juicing and blending, she experienced more energy than she had in years. This experience led her to want to help others who felt the same frustration with the medical system. And so, she decided to go to school to become a nutritionist, becoming a Certified Nutrition Therapist Practitioner in 2015. She will complete her Master Nutrition Therapist certification in 2018.
