Hi, I’m Nikki Gepner, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in Woodinville, WA.  I help people investigate the root causes of why they are experiencing symptoms like fatigue, PMS, bloating, joint pain and more.  I’m tired of people being told everything is normal when they hardly feel well enough to enjoy their day.

 

I still remember coming home from a birthday party when I was 7 or 8, extremely nauseated and sick.  The first time it happened I didn’t think much of it, but then it kept happening. I was told it was lactose intolerance yet avoiding lactose didn’t help.  I would often have rashes and hives and was told it was just dry skin and to use lotion, which didn’t help.  I had such painful periods that I would miss school and later work because I couldn’t concentrate and was not safe to drive.  I was told this was normal and to take pain medication, which barely touched the pain.  As an adult I started getting migraines so bad that I would lose peripheral vision and would end up so nauseated I would pray to be able to sleep.  After having my boys, I started having horrible joint aches with severe fatigue that would last days to a week at a time.  I saw every specialist I could find for all of these symptoms but was always told my tests came out normal.  How could that be possible?  Some days I was literally too tired to take my boys to the park and it was all I could do to sit and watch them play.   

 

Sick and tired, I started to incorporate lifestyle changes to reduce stress, improve my sleep and changed my diet to heal my digestive tract.  I’m delighted to share with you that now I don’t experience any of the above with the exception of an occasional migraine, which are significantly milder than they used to be.  Now I compete in weightlifting and still have energy to enjoy time with my family. 

 

I’m beyond excited to guide you through your journey to wellness and feeling your best.
