Functional Health Coaching
I’m Becca, a Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and Board-Certified Holistic Health Practitioner. From an early age I struggled with hormone imbalance, gut dysfunction, and a weak immune system. I got sick often, my cycles were a mess, and I had raging candida overgrowth.
At the age of 18 I did what everyone else was doing to regulate their periods. I got on the pill. It’s one of the life choices I regret the most as it silently wreaked havoc on my health for the next 12 years depleting me of vital nutrients I would need to start a future family and live a heathy life.
The fast-paced lifestyle I led in my 20’s didn’t do me any favors, either. My diet and negative coping mechanisms set me up for inflammation, leaky gut, and severe hormone imbalance. While I was very good at integrating play into my life during this season, I was terrible at rest. I would go go go until I dropped.
By the time I was ready to start having babies my body was utterly depleted, although I didn’t understand it at the time. I assumed I would get pregnant easily and have healthy pregnancies. I had no idea that the pill depletes key nutrients needed to conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy, nutrients like folate, vitamins B2, B6, B12, vitamin C and E and the minerals magnesium, selenium and zinc. I experienced my first chemical pregnancy one cycle prior to getting pregnant with my first son and I was devastated. I had no clue what I had set myself up for.
The next 10 years were marked by having three precious boys via emergency c-section (the last being a cesarean/hysterectomy as a life-saving procedure due to placenta accreta) with multiple chemical pregnancies and one eight-week miscarriage in between. In the midst of all of this baby making and child raising I started and ran multiple businesses, and managed my household with a husband who traveled a lot for work. I didn’t make rest and play a priority. I simply tried to survive each day.
I fell into my 40’s with a gigantic thud. Exhausted. Overweight. Anxious. Depressed. Overwhelmed. In chronic pain. Thankfully the Good Lord had already led me to the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition program where I had fallen in love with all things functional health and received the knowledge to make the changes I needed. The funny thing is that it just took me a while to finally start taking the advice I give my clients on a daily basis. I had been so busy taking care of my clients and my family that I had failed to take care of myself and make my own health a priority. It was time for some major shifts!
I ran multiple functional labs on myself to seek out the healing opportunities in my body that were presenting as symptoms. I worked HARD on my gut health, eradicating overgrowths, decreasing toxic load, releasing heavy metals, ensuring proper digestion and improving the integrity of my mucosal barrier. I supported my genetic predispositions and hormone issues with the diet and nutrients needed for my body to function at the proper levels.
The next part of my protocol, though, is one of the keys to long term success. I added back in two of the most important vitamins for health and wellness, rest and play. I could do ALL OF THE THINGS, but if I didn’t get a handle on my stress and overwhelm, none of it mattered long term.
I know what it’s like to be an exhausted, irritable, overweight, and anxious insomniac who feels like she is failing herself and her family. I also now know what it’s like to move towards my ideal health vision and feel joy and contentment for no reason, get restorative sleep, have abundant energy and no longer have to squeeze into too tight clothes. My kids and husband deserve the best version of myself and so do I. I want to be a woman, wife, and mom who is fully present and makes self-care a priority.
I no longer pour out of my cup to serve those I love. Instead I now fill up my cup with rest and play and serve others from the overflow. I ask for and accept help when I need it. I slow down to go fast. I also give myself the gift of community where I can learn and continue to grow as a human.

How We Work Together
I help exhausted and stressed out mamas, who feel like they have tried everything, FINALLY uncover the root of their weight, hormone, and gut issues so they can feel happy in their bodies and present for their families again.
I use a holistic approach to bring the body back into balance by
focusing on nourishing foods, rest and play, appropriate exercise, internal
and external stress reduction and therapeutic supplementation.
It’s time to start chasing health rather than managing symptoms. This looks
like high energy, an ideal weight, refreshing sleep, a balanced mood, strong immune system and healthy libido. My goal with each client is 100% function and
I utilize functional labs to work at the underlying causal level versus just managing symptoms.

I felt sluggish for years and recently have had multiple bizarre symptoms arise. Thankfully I found Becca, with Holistic Obsession, who has been a game changer for me. After my first round of testing and protocol suggestions with Becca, I have experienced a marked increase in energy and my body is functioning much more efficiently. My brain fog has lifted, my digestion has normalized and I feel human again. I am taking a deeper dive with Becca’s help in the coming months and look forward to optimizing my health even more. I highly recommend Becca and wish I had done this sooner.
