My name is Lynn. I’m on a mission to reach thousands and make kids healing and recovery a household conversation.
As a child, at age 13 I was diagnosed with endometriosis and experienced debilitating pain on a monthly basis for 13 years. Drugs and surgery did NOT work. In 1996 I changed my diet. My pain ceased. No drugs. No hysterectomy. I’ve been at the mercy of medical doctors and at both ends of the nutritional spectrum. Nutrition alone brought me chronic relief.
As a parent, my son experienced multiple seizures a day. He was given a grim prognosis. The most rigid nutritional ketogenic diet for my son, was not enough. Nutrition for him was just the tip of the iceberg. I explored a functional path to healing. He is fully recovered for 6 plus years (and every day is a gift). No drugs. No brain surgery. He has a renewed chance at a fully functioning life.
The key is to find the right tools, so the body can heal.
As a practitioner, I’ve helped countless individuals improve their health using a systems approach rather than a symptom approach, as an F.D.N. Practitioner. I offer functional support, identifying metabolic dysfunctions, dietary interventions and environmental supports to help children heal. Please refer to my 1-on-1 consultation page for information on labs to order, services that I offer and how to begin your healing road.
I’ve pursued the certification as a F.D.N. practitioner and have studied at the Academy of Functional Medicine in extensive modules including vitamin, amino acid deficiencies, neurological disorders and gastrointestinal disorders. Nutritional supports as well as exploration into H.I.D.D.E.N stressors (Hormone, Immune, Digestive, Detoxification, Environment and Neurotransmitters) has done wonders for many clients, both young and old. I’m trained in Autism Mastery, identifying and addressing the most complex biochemical dysfunctions. I’m currently completing training in BioIndividual Nutrition: helping families identify the best possible diet for their child. TI research weekly to keep current and updated and have written several Ebooks. I have a following on Facebook and at my websites Advocate for Healing and Nutrition for Seizures.
Kids Health 101 will feature articles and podcasts intended to reach thousands; those not limited to my community but to anyone in the world that has access to the internet. I took this vow when my son “miraculously” recovered. We’ll discuss everything from how to get our children to eat healthy (for all ages), nourish our teens, get supports for all types of symptoms (yes ADD, Asthma, Allergies and Autism are symptoms!) and help us parents feel empowered. Please join me in this crusade and share this website with other parents.
I have two beautiful children: Lainey, 15 and Koa age 12 and an extremely supportive fun loving husband. The kids bring me so much light, humor into my life while training me in tolerance. We live in beautiful Mammoth Lakes where I love to hike, bike, run, ski, and live in the outdoors.
