Meet Laura Indigo!
Laura Indigo is a Functional Nutrition Health Coach.
I know firsthand how difficult it can be to struggle through your student, work or parenting lives when you're secretly suffering with digestive issues, fatigue, anxiety, difficulty focusing and a myriad of other issues due to gut, hormone & metabolic imbalances. Growing up with chronic Lyme symptoms compromised my gut, hormone & metabolic functions, so I learned through experience how to take charge of my own health to find diet & lifestyle solutions to be pain-free, active, working and happily engaged with my family & community.
I have dedicated my life to learning & implementing diet & lifestyle strategies that make a HUGE difference in people's lives. There is no more fad-chasing when you build solid foundations of health with functional nutrition! Eat until you're full, no counting calories. By balancing gut, hormone & metabolic health, you set the stage for a balanced life- with more peaceful sleep, better all day energy and more focused presence with your friends, kids or partner- giving you high quality time with the people you love.
It All Started When...
I was a teenager growing up on Martha's Vineyard & had unexplained fatigue, severe headaches, bloating & brain fog from undiagnosed Lyme. One of my Cambridge doctors suggested I decrease symptoms through diet, so I discovered my anti-inflammatory food plan through trial & error over many years, by tuning into my body & noticing how I felt. I went from pain and fogginess to total clarity and energy, depending on what I ate. From this I discovered the incredible power we have over our own health with diet & lifestyle.
But even with this powerful tool, I had symptoms that popped up as I aged, with the hormonal changes of perimenopause & menopause, thyroid changes, gum health, fatigue, bloating, anxiety, detoxification & methylation issues- yikes! I knew I needed to understand more about digestive, hormones and metabolic health to turn this around.
But Then Everything Changed...
I got trained as a Functional Nutritional Therapist, where I learned how to prioritize action steps, to know what systems to address first and how to utilize anti-inflammatory foods & holistic lifestyle choices to improve health. My advanced training as a Master Restorative Wellness Practitioner taught me how to use functional testing & assessments to discover healing opportunities in digestive, metabolic, hormonal wellness, autoimmunity & toxins, and how to make a clear plan to address these issues holistically. And my training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner has helped me deeply integrate all this and more with 5 next level foundational tests and a simple model that's easy to understand, to uncover and address HIDDEN stressors and utilize a DRESS protocol that's easy to explain and act upon.
What a huge turnaround!
As I understood my body more, I learned I went into these hormonal changes with disadvantages:
- from stress, raising a teenager & lack of sleep, being self-employed, having had extended antibiotics, and aging parents who needed more of my attention & support.
All very important - but I could have done this SO much faster & more easily with a Functional Nutrition Coach to guide me!
I was able to turn my symptoms around, and now I have solid energy, healthy thyroid, sharp cognitive function, sleep through the night, healthy gums, and know how to work with my genetic inheritance to improve detoxification & optimize my health.
