Because each individual’s health needs and concerns are unique, a personalized and strategic approach is taken to identify your specific deficiencies and/or low levels of nutrients and/or hormones. Aging, lifestyle, stress, genetics and one’s health history are all factors in how your treatment plan is created. Educating patients and removing the fear and perceived obstacles from the process of self-care is a primary focus for how Heather consults with patients. “It has to be realistic for people and understanding the ‘why’ and ‘what’ is vital to my patient’s success in achieving their health and weight goals. Whether you want to lose weight, improve your sleep, identify your allergies, or just feel and look your best, no two patients are treated alike. Get off the medical treadmill and step into feeling and being your healthiest, using holistic and natural therapies to restore the body’s natural balance of optimum health. Breaking down false beliefs about food, weight, and your body’s systems are key to breaking habits and patterns that are not nourishing your body. See how easy feeling your best and being your healthiest can be!
Heather has strategically designed this program for individuals who are looking for healthy, permanent weight loss. Most people have achieved some success, at one point or another, in losing weight by doing commercial or fad diets. But it can be challenging to keep the weight off. There are many reasons why this happens. Heather helps you identify any metabolic or physiologic reasons that weight loss has not been sustainable, as well as addressing any behavioral or emotional obstacles that have limited your ability to lose weight and keep it off.

Understanding how natural or bio-identical hormone therapies can improve your overall health, slow down the aging process, reduce risks of the diseases of aging, as well as improving one’s quality of life, are the motivations for utilizing these therapies.

Heather has been specially trained in the protocols and therapeutic uses of peptide therapies.
