My name is Kathy and I’m from the beautiful rolling hills of western Pennsylvania. I’m just an average girl with a quiet life who lives in a cozy cottage with a loyal dog. Motherhood is my greatest occupation and this is my story. It all started with routine blood work in December of 2014, when my cholesterol numbers came back high and my primary care physician immediately wanted to put me on medicine. But in my mind, these numbers just didn’t add up. While I don’t run marathons or spend copious sweaty hours at the gym, I do keep active, practice yoga and have always been mindful of my food. Instead of jumping on the pharmaceutical bandwagon, I set to work and did some research. Becoming my own best advocate for my health & well being has been an unexpected experience of self exploration and a thruway to a better life. The joy of my journey has inspired me to tell my story and share my discovery of Functional Medicine and the balance it has brought to my existence.
