Annika is a Licensed Nutritionist and Dietitian with twenty-six years experience and a passion for functional and integrative medicine to address the root cause of health conditions.
Her passion for nutrition and functional medicine stems from her decades of chronic health struggles which prevented her from living the life she wanted. Annika was plagued with bone-crushing fatigue, constant brain fog, autoimmune thyroid disease, anxiety, depression, bronchial and sinus infections, debilitating menstrual symptoms, PCOS, hypoglycemia, kidney stones, chronic headaches, heavy metal toxicity, and was ultimately told her conditions were incurable and she would never be able to have a child. What she discovered instead is that she just needed a different approach to healing!
Her studies in nutrition and functional medicine helped her address the root causes of her symptoms one by one, and she became a new version of herself, free of debilitating disease, capable of conceiving, and able to live life to the fullest.
Annika customizes a lifestyle medicine program for each of her clients in order to address the unique root cause of their weight gain, fatigue thyroid disfunction, digestive health, menstrual challenges and menopause symptoms.
Annika completed her dietetics internship in Endocrinology at Cleveland Clinic of Weston. She received her undergraduate degree (B.A.) from Swarthmore College in psychology/pre-medical, and then completed a Bachelors in Science from Keiser University where she graduated valedictorian.
