Shortly after a trip abroad, Jenna started experiencing gut issues, hormone imbalance, muscle/joint pain, brain fog, blood sugar issues, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and nerve pain. After receiving no answers from conventional medicine, she sought out holistic modalities to help get to the root of her chronic health conditions. Through a series of skilled practitioners, they uncovered nutrient deficiencies, heavy metal toxicity, mold toxicity, parasitic infections, fungal/bacterial overgrowth (Lyme/co-infections), and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.
Jenna became her own health advocate, and continued post graduate studies in nutritional science and functional medicine. Through her health journey she realized that addressing the physical aspect of disease was only one-third of the puzzle. The spirit, soul (mind, will, emotions), and body all needed to be addressed and in alignment for true healing to occur.
It was during this health journey Jenna encountered the love of Jesus and experienced the presence of God; a love like no other that brought her into a place of reconciliation, healing, and led her to community.
Through discipleship under Virginia Dixon, she was taught fundamental principles of self government that helped eliminate confusion, chaos, and dis-ease. Reconciling the inner conflict between the spirit, soul, and body enabled her to step into clarity, order, freedom and ultimately a place of R.E.S.T.™ (relational, emotional, spiritual truth). Once her body was in a parasympathetic state of rest, the tools she learned as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner were utilized and her body started to heal.
Jenna now practices as an FDN-P and Ambassador of R.E.S.T.™, helping people eliminate stressors that cause dis-ease.
Jenna received her undergraduate degree in sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She continued post graduate studies in nutrition science at Santa Monica College, and functional nutrition studies through Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, receiving her certification as an FDN-P.
