Reasons to choose me as your Natural Health Guide and Educator…

#2. I understand you because I’ve been there
I hear you. You’re bloated, tired, stressed & moody. You’re becoming hard to be around. You’ve grown a spare tire around your belly that’s gotten so big, you can’t squeeze it into your pants anymore. So many foods mess with your digestion these days, you have no idea what to eat. You often stay away from food for fear of aggravating your bloating and abdominal pain.
You don’t have to live this way!
I know firsthand what you’re going through because I’ve endured the pain and debilitating symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). I visited with top-notch medical specialists who ran a gamut of diagnostic tests to tell me that nothing was wrong. But deep down I knew something was “off.” We usually do. I was literally propelled into the field of Naturopathy by my own personal struggle with IBS. After discovering, learning and implementing my own healing program into my life, I became symptom free. By healing my own digestive problems through natural medicine and from my years worth of consultation experience with clients I know certain things to be true.

#3. I apply a Holistic Approach
I quickly came to realize that lab tests are standardized but humans aren’t. Only a holistic approach can yield healing results. In order to affect true and successful healing I need 4 ingredients:
#1. A greater understanding of the person in front of me, not solely the disease.
#2. An in depth look at the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
#3. An individualized step by step program for my clients to follow
#4. A holistic understanding that encompasses mind, body, lifestyle habits,
#4. Naturopathic Medicine is my forever passion
A lifetime of exposure in the field of Natural medicine and years worth of formal education in Naturopathy has equipped me with the skills, knowledge, confidence and compassion to analyze and distill client cases and quickly provide in depth health solutions aimed at diminishing suffering and empowering health.
My health recommendations are concise, bite sized, easy to implement and strategically designed to help my clients achieve their health & life goals.
Natural healing is nothing new. This approach has been around for longer than we have. Bountiful nature provides us with all we need to achieve optimal health. Naturopathy guides us in applying this wisdom to our own lives.
#5. I’m a Health Geek
I know my stuff. An obsessive researcher and collector of health articles. Being quite unaware of current events, you can find me either reading said articles by the dozen or listening to health podcasts. I live for current and up to date research in the field of natural health and wellness. If I told you I could spend 12 hours at Whole Foods straight, I mean it. It’s impossible to pull me away!
My consultation work is largely influenced by Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines of the East. There is so much truth, wisdom and common sense inherent in them: we should listen.
As a hoarder of healthy kitchen staples, I adore preparing healthy foods and teaching others to do so. As the mother of 2 young children, I am continually driven to find the healthiest recipes that include the healthiest ingredients so that my kids will actually eat good food. This greatly inspires how I teach my educational health and cooking classes. Teaching is my true love as I’m overjoyed when imparting the message of health to many at once.
My background in Environmental studies has instilled in me a deep appreciation for the natural world because nature helps us re-balance and come back to ourselves. Medicines extracted from nature bridge the disconnect between ourselves and the natural world, bringing back a deep sense of wholeness.

I’ve been suffering with my stomach and Digestion issues for so many years. I have painful heart burn, irritation, acidity, joint pains, fatigue and the list goes on. I’ve been seeing doctors over and over but without any successful results. When I started seeing Dr. Desiree, she listened tomy story and was very knowledgeable about what was going on. She immediately suggested natural products to get my system working again and flushing away what was accumulated. It’ s only been 2 times I see her but I can say that I see the amazing results. My digestion is better, my heart burn has been reduced and I can’ t wait till everything is resolved. Dr Desiree is very motivational and I am starting to have hope again. I would definitely recommend her. She can give you information on eating habits, easy recipes and regimes to follow.”
