Rachel Scheer BS, CFN
Rachel Scheer is a Functional Medicine Nutritionist who received her degree from Baylor University in Nutrition Science and Dietetics and became certified in functional medicine through the Kalish Institute.
Rachel's journey as a nutritionist began in bodybuilding and athletic performance, however, a couple years into her practice she began to suffer from severe gastrointestinal dysfunction (IBS.) After many false diagnoses, spending thousands of dollars on doctor visits and tests, and one doctor even suggesting the removal of her entire large intestine, Rachel decided to take her health into her own hands.
Rachel says "using a functional approach and focusing on the health of the gut microbiome saved [her] life. All disease begins and ends in the gut, so rather than putting a 'band-aid' over an issue I.e. medications/drugs/surgery, we need to get to the root cause and that's what functional medicine comes in. My gut issues came from a bacteria imbalance or gut dysbiosis, and once I was able to address that through diet, stress, supplements, and lifestyle changes I was able to heal my body, avoid surgery, and come off dozens of medications I was put on over the years."
Rachel's nutrition philosophy is one that looks at the total person to help them 'heal instead of just deal'. She uses Functional Lab Testing to address the root cause of any imbalances in the body and uses a holistic (mind and body) approach for healing.
"I am the person people come to when nothing else has worked for them. I would love to offer you a free 30-minute phone consultation with my team to see how we can help you" - Rachel Scheer
