hey, I'm wHITNEY
I recognized that we are living in a broken system that never intended for the chronically ill to get better and had no interest in addressing what got them sick in the first place. I went back to school to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner through the Nutritional Therapy Association and have reached thousands with autoimmune disease since starting my business in 2018.
western medicine is set up to treat, not heal
When I was first diagnosed with hashimotos and alopecia, I realized there was no support for people with autoimmune disease until they had passed the threshold of "symptomatic with normal bloodwork" to "sick and in crisis." What's more, the focus was never on reversing disease, only managing it.
After developing hair loss, rapid weight gain, painful periods, and chronic fatigue, I went to doctor, after doctor, after doctor, and no one could tell me why I had these issues, just that I would need to wait until I was sick enough to warrant medication.
We fill the wide gaps in your medical care and support your bio-individual needs because you deserve a care team who fully sees you. We know your symptoms showed up at the end of a story longer than what you can tell in the 15 minute doctor appointments you've been to. We're here to witness you and put your health puzzle pieces together so you can *actually* get better.
You don't have to do this alone.
At Rooted in Healing we see you as a whole human and witness all the parts of your story that led you to this moment.
Whether you have autoimmune disease, mystery symptoms that doctors can't diagnose, SIBO, candida, or mold illness, our community is going to hold your hand as you navigate the ups and downs of healing... because you deserve it.
ROOTED IN HEALING IS here to help you get back to center.
As the founder of this company (and as someone with multiple autoimmune diseases and a history of health woes I wouldn't wish on anyone), I know it's easy to get symptom tunnel vision. I get that you worry about the future and find yourself trapped in the despair of being sick. I understand how chronic illness impacts your relationship, your career, and your ability to show up in the world the way you want to.
Your body is capable of healing.

"A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer.
