Patients rarely associate symptoms like brain fog, joint pain or allergies with impaired gut health, but the microbiome and the protective gut lining are our body's first defense!
That's why at Body & Soul Alchemy, going deeper on possible gut imbalances & stealth infections is part of our integrative approach... so we can dial down inflammation & premature aging.
Sometimes, the gut isn’t actually the problem, it's what you eat and how that affects the billions of bacteria in your GI tract. A poor diet (or frequent use of antibiotics) can kill the good gut bacteria and prevent the body from producing critical vitamins & neurotransmitters essential for balanced mood, calm mind, all-day-energy and a resilient immune system!
Persistent gut issues can spiral into systemic inflammation... which can eventually turn the body against itself. It's no wonder that psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto's and type I diabetes are at an all-time high... so we need to address chronic inflammation first before looking into more conventional options to help you reclaim vibrant health + wellness.

"Can’t say enough about Jennifer's books and programs. I felt really intimidated by health before I met her at one of her classes but was really inspired to learn more about healthy eating. I had no idea that I was eating all the wrong foods and doing a few other things that were causing my fatigue. Just after changing my eating habits over the past few months I've lost weight and feel so much better! I got over eating a lot of go-to frozen meals and so called "health foods" that well marketed but full of junk!
"Several years ago, I started to work on healing gut after being diagnosed with IBS. I noticed that certain foods would really cause bloating or other issues, so I wanted to work more on my diet and understand if eating a certain way could help. I was really excited to find Jennifer - not only because she had IBS like me, but she's so knowledgeable about gut health and even helped to guide me to the right Functional Medicine doctor for testing. It turned out that my IBS was something completely different and now that I know, it all makes sense!"
"Jennifer makes getting healthy a lot of fun. She loves great tasting food and her recipes don't disappoint! I really like her take on self-care too, making things as soulful as possible. She is very supportive and has always been there to guide, even at times when I didn't feel good about myself or fell off the wagon with trying to eat better. I highly recommend her if you are ready to improve your quality of life."
