WELCOME TO YOUR EPIC GENETICS
You’re smart. You’re savvy. You’re informed. You keep up with the latest information on health and wellness. You eat well. You are active. You follow tips that you have learned for leading a healthy lifestyle.
So why do you still have daily fatigue that is holding you back?
Why do you have an energy slump in the afternoon, and then catch your second wind at night? Why do you struggle with excess belly fat and feel bloated? Why do you lay in bed at night, struggling to fall asleep, with anxious thought spinning in your head? Why do you experience embarrassing or painful IBS-type symptoms?
Isn't it just part of life to feel this way?
Or is it not-at-all normal, but unfortunately
becoming more and more common?
Let’s not settle for common.
Let’s dive into WHY you are feeling this way,
so that you can feel like yourself again, with the energy you dream of
having, to live your life optimally.
Embrace Your Bio-Individuality
My mission is to empower you to reclaim your health through nutrient-dense food, lifestyle change, and strategic supplementation to support a healthy gut environment. These changes will help support:
- energy levels
- digestive wellness
- skin health
- balanced mood
- balanced hormones
Functional Nutrition focuses on seeing the individual as a whole, unique being. As a FNTP, I seek to find underlying stressors that may be contributing to a person’s health experiences.
To uncover these stressors, I utilize Functional Nutrition lab tests, a complete health history, and a thorough client intake interview. I then create a bio-individual protocol to achieve the best results to bring digestion, energy levels, and mood back into balance through supporting the digestive system, rebalancing gut-wellness, and addressing nutrient deficiencies.
Your health journey begins with your Digestive Wellness Package.

What is epigenetics? How can I support my genes?
Epigenetics is the study of how environment, behavior, and food selection can cause changes that affect the way a person’s genes are expressed. In other words, the DNA sequence does not change, but the way the body “reads” the DNA sequence can change, as influenced by the person’s diet, quality of sleep, stress levels, relationships, environment, exposure to toxins, and other behaviors.
Each person has unique genetic variations, or SNP’s (pronounced “snips”), which can appear as strengths or weaknesses, depending upon the factors mentioned in the above paragraph.
When we have knowledge of how our genetic expression can impact or support our health and wellness, we then can be empowered to make the best choices we can, with the information that we have, to support our health on the foundational level.

Hi There! I’m Neeley.
When it comes to fatigue and autoimmunity, I have been there! Before crashing into a world of constant fatigue, I overdid everything. I ate too much processed junk and sweets, stayed up too late, worked on a non-traditional schedule as an airline pilot, had three kids, trained hard, and completely burned myself out. I had no idea why I couldn’t keep up with other moms my age. (Ha! I know, right?) Completing daily tasks was a struggle. I NEEDED to take a nap in the middle of the day just to function, and I counted down the minutes until my young children would go to sleep, when I would catch my second wind and stay up until 2am.
It is an awful feeling to be “there” but not “present” nor “available” for family and friends. I had no bandwidth to deal with stressors that presented themselves to me.
Knowing that something had to change, I embarked upon my path into making changes in nutrition, life-habits (such as sleep!), and began a targeted supplementation plan. I decreased my exposure to environmental toxins, and oh yes, I learned all about gluten-sensitivity and celiac disease. I had food sensitivities, microbiome imbalance, and was creating antibodies against myself. Yikes. I needed to make a lot of changes. (No pressure, right?)
The cool thing about it all was that I saw firsthand the power of making nutritional and lifestyle changes. I saw the power of targeted supplementation. I saw the power of taking care of my emotional wellbeing. I saw the power of supporting my gut-health.
I began to feel better, have more energy, and felt overall more balanced.
Through this experience of reversing my physical and emotional fatigue, I knew that I wanted to help others who were wandering aimlessly along a similar path, thinking it was “normal”. I decided to pivot my career.
I obtained my FNTP certificate at the Nutritional Therapy Association, and went on to become a Level 3 Restorative Wellness Practitioner.
My goal is to empower individuals experiencing fatigue, digestive symptoms, and brain fog that is holding them back, to reclaim their energy, productivity and joy, so that they can excel and be fully present in all areas of their life.
