Who Is Diana?
Welcome to my website! I haven’t always shared my story. In fact, I spent years hiding it! I was diagnosed with Celiac disease as a toddler. That might not seem like a big deal, but I grew up in the 70s and 80s. Gluten was not a household name, and gluten free definitely didn’t exist as it does today. So, I learned how to cook, plan ahead, bring my own food and hide my dietary restrictions. I also earned a bachelor’s in nutrition and became a Registered Dietitian.
ca. 2005 Eczema Gaining Momentum
ca.1969 Celiac disease
Fast forward, I had two kids, a husband, a full-time job, and a very hectic schedule. As they say, the struggle is real, but this was ridiculous! You may know the symptoms: fatigue, brain fog, weight gain, eczema, hanging on by a thread. In fact, eczema was taking over my body including my face! I was gluten free, so what was happening?
I started looking for answers. I tried a plethora of elimination diets. I whittled my diet down to a hand full of foods, but my symptoms never completely went away. I drove my family and friends crazy. In my quest for “the answer,” I quit my job and went back to school.
I now have a Master’s in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States. To date, it’s the only master’s program collaborating with the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), the organization that founded and developed the key functional medicine concepts in use today.
I also became a certified LEAP therapist (CLT), which means I have advanced clinical training in managing adverse food reactions with an emphasis on food sensitivities. The LEAP protocol is an evidence-based and highly effective eating plan for food sensitivity related health problems. LEAP utilizes the patented Mediator Release blood Test (MRT) to help uncover food and chemical sensitivities
Finally, I no longer have eczema, fatigue, brain fog, and weight issues. I spent a lot of time and energy learning to solve my own health issues. Now I want to share my knowledge, and ultimately, reduce your recovery time so you too can live your life to the fullest! What are your health goals? If you are ready to achieve them, call or email me today!
