Sophie Shepherd is a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, FDN-P, who just 7 years ago was desperately struggling to figure out why she felt so awful. At age 23, she had IBS, she had gained thirty pounds, her hair started to fall out, she was completely exhausted, her sleep was erratic and her depression was at an all-time high. She lost her libido, had a painful ovarian cyst burst and was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. She lived in fear, pain and anxiety with no one to help her figure out what was wrong with her body.
She decided to take things into her own hands by hiring a functional medicine practitioner who taught her how to heal her digestion, eat to support her hormones and manage stress. After a couple weeks, she was thinking clearer, sleeping soundly, and feeling her energy return. Her digestion was no longer a daily worry and the weight started to fall off.
Her holistic journey back to optimal health inspired her to go back to school at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. Now, with years of experience in women's hormone health, Sophie helps women around the globe transform their menstrual and digestive health through nutrition, holistic lifestyle changes and root cause testing so they can finally have straightforward answers to their most mystifying symptoms. Sophie’s mission is to educate and empower women so they can reclaim their hormones and get their life back!
