Our Modern Health KC Roadmap is a unique approach to help women regain their energy, focus and gut health, naturally without prescriptions so they can live life fully, feeling and looking their best… especially if you’ve already seen lots of doctors.

The Beating Digestive Drama framework is a critical part of our Roadmap –   Women can finally enjoy an active, joyful life looking better than ever by following our framework.  

We partner with each client to achieve these steps, starting with the Gather Phase:

  • During the intake… we’ll review your past medical history and any previous lab tests, so we can assess symptoms or anything your doctor might have overlooked. We also start you on a food log to begin understanding how food impacts your symptoms.
  • Next, we’ll establish healthy habits and mindset and work through the past emotional trauma that affects your ability to heal… plus I’ll help you curate a self-care routine to activate your body’s innate healing capabilities.
  • After that, we’ll assess your nutrition – evaluating possible deficiencies and deploying a personalized nutrition program aided by provider-grade supplements.
  • The next three steps focus on restoring gut function, dialing down inflammation, and optimizing detox and cellular health – starting with pathogens & stealth infections that are often at the root of gut dysbiosis.
  • Next, we address the corrosive effects of inflammation – taking control of blood sugar imbalances and insulin resistance, chronic infections, and oxidative stress to shift your body into a healing state.
  • Next, we focus on repairing the gut lining to reestablish intestinal integrity so we can lower inflammation and undo the damage caused by things like a leaky gut.
  • The last step in the Foundations phase is dedicated to helping you reduce your body’s toxic burden, avoid toxins in the first place, and replenish your cellular machinery for an energized life.
  • Once we make headway with the Foundations phase, we’ll turn our attention to rebalancing your sleep & stress, hormones, as well as a nervous system if necessary

  • Specifically, we’ll optimize circadian rhythm and help you better manage your stress by supporting your stress physiology.
  • In the hormone rebalancing step, we provide thyroid support to restore energy and improve metabolism. We also rebalance sex hormones and address cravings that can keep you from losing weight and feeling energized. I will tell you these areas tend to autocorrect with focused consistency on the foundation’s phase.
  • The final step of our Modern Health KC Roadmap focuses on strengthening parasympathetic tone to help you shift from “flight or flight” to “rest and digest” mode – dialing down neuroinflammation which is at the root of the leaky brain and cognitive issues while supporting neurotransmitter production for a balanced mood.
