Ever Wonder If You Actually Have Depression
(Or If It’s Something Else)?

woman wondering if she has depression or something else

Maybe you say these things to yourself…. “I guess I feel awful because it’s just part of being depressed like my doctor has told me” or “maybe it’s my genetics”, or “maybe I just burned myself out working so hard”?

Maybe you’ve already put a lot of effort into finding a solution – seeing specialist after specialist…

… only to be told “you’re depressed” and “take the medication and hope for the best” – even though you sense they are missing something.

Yet undeniably, you have also seen a steady decline in your energy and unwanted weight gain to boot… which is making the aches and pains worse.

Maybe you are even feeling cheated by how much effort you put into working with many doctors to “just get a straight answer” and how to “get back to where you used to be”?

Or maybe you’ve seen some other upsetting changes in your skin and bowel movement… keying you in that it’s probably not a classical case of depression.

I understand exactly what you are experiencing right now, because I also experienced many of these tiresome symptoms early on in my career.

Yet as a traditionally trained doctor at the time, I simply could not find the answers.

That led me to seek additional medical training in Functional Medicine, which I now combine into a truly comprehensive approach towards rebalancing physical and mental health.

As an in-demand educator and go-to expert in mental health, I am on a mission to help as many patients as possible through my practice Functional Mind LLC, as well as teaching nationally on how food, lifestyle, gut health and environmental factors impact your mental balance.

The Reason Why Mental Health Issues Are So Prevalent? People Don’t Know How To Care For Their Brains!

Why Mental Health Issues Are So Prevalent? People Don’t Know How To Care For Their Brains

The good news is, you can start to adjust those factors to bring back balance to your life, and resolve depression without going on antidepressants.

I had to learn these things through years of education as well as trial and error… but I don’t want you to go through the same thing I did, dealing with persistent symptoms and feeling depressed because no one shared this critical information with me!!

Can you imagine how good that would feel… to be finally free of your fatigue, low moods, and brain fog so you can get your life back?

To finally have your piece of mind back, shed a few pounds and sleep soundly at night? To finally have the energy to get your work done and enjoy time with your family again?

It is possible, as I have seen with countless of my patients and myself… and this is why I created a 12-week bootcamp to help you revitalize your brain… to cover all the information that unfortunately isn’t common knowledge.

Create a timeline that informs you about your health history and how it has shaped your current health situation. The benefit of mapping out your health history is to identify past events that have predisposed, provoked, and contributed to your depression-like symptoms – revealing reoccurring themes, a family history of mental illness and “perfect storms” that catapulted you down the wrong health path.

WEEK 4 - Food is Medicine, Food is Poison

Discover how leaky gut syndrome and systemic inflammation are the baseline cause for most chronic diseases and mental health conditions. You’ll learn how to implement a Clean Eating food plan that also addresses food sensitivities, intolerances and allergies so we can remove an onslaught of systemic inflammation.

This is how we can use food as medicine instead of using antidepressants.

You will complete a toxic exposure questionnaire to see where you fall short, and learn how to choose the right products for your home with helpful apps.

There are lots of roadblocks surrounding lifestyle change.

You’ll troubleshoot issues surrounding food and lifestyle and consider adding certain foods back into your diet.
