About Melanie

I live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with my husband. We have three grown children. They have had to watch me struggle with my own health for well over a decade.

My own journey from illness to wellness has equipped me with a unique perspective and a profound empathy for those who are struggling with their health.

I have grappled with chronic issues that left me feeling hopeless and defeated. Despite seeking answers from the conventional medical system, I found myself met with frustration and disappointment as my conditions persisted: multiple food intolerances, histamine intolerance, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, eczema, and IC. It seemed as though I was trapped in a never-ending cycle of symptom management, unable to break free from the limitations imposed by my own body.

Determined to find a solution, I turned to healing through functional medicine—this led to temporary fixes and then, more disappointment. I tried so many restrictive diets that only seemed to make things worse. It wasn’t until I discovered this integrative healing program that I was able to uncover the root causes of my symptoms based on functional lab testing, and I learned how to support my body's innate ability to heal.

I am so passionate about this program that I became an Integrative Healing Practitioner myself, so I can help other people who are struggling with their health. I understand the frustration of feeling unheard and misunderstood by the traditional medical system, and I am committed to providing compassionate, personalized care to each and every one of my clients.
