Jennifer Clemente MS, CNS is a board certified, clinically trained nutritionist
My health had never been stellar. Through childhood, I suffered with unexplained abdominal pain, GI issues, a tick disorder and depression. By the time I was 20, things would slip from my hands because my fingers were painful and weak. Then came IBS, uterine fibroids and late stage pre-cancer. While it’s so obvious now, at the time, I wasn’t able to recognize my body’s cry for help or connect the dots between what I ate and how I felt.
By my late 30’s my health had completely fallen apart. I was debilitated and suffering yet, doctors told me again and again that I was fine because the routine tests were normal. Rather than digging deeper, they offered antidepressants telling me the illness was “just in my head”.
Thankfully, I found an alternative health practitioner who actually listened and shed light on my symptoms. She empowered me to re-evaluate the choices I was making including my food, career, stress and relationships. One step at a time I changed my life and reclaimed my health.
Today, at 50yrs old, I am healthy, vibrant and in remission from an autoimmune disease. I have spent the last decade studying all aspects of human health from a functional medicine perspective. My practice is dedicated to helping others uncover their hidden causes of sickness, make empowered choices through education and elevate those suffering by being a supportive health partner.
