I’ve been interested in the mind-body connection since my teenage years, but I have to say that my road here was mainly driven by my own natural curiosity and by two men, my father and my husband.

My father was always trying to maximize his health. He had an extensive health library that provided me with hours and hours of reading material for my hungry mind. I continued indulging my fascination with the human mind and body at the University of Texas, curious about how diet can impact mental and physical health.

My marriage actually compelled me to dive even deeper into the alternative health world, as my husband needed help with a digestion issue that he’d had for many years. He wanted a natural approach, and recruited me to help him research his issues. That’s when I really blossomed, finding resources I had never known before in the world of holistic nutrition. Using diet, lifestyle changes, and supplements, we were able to resolve his years-long issue in a matter of months. Since then, I have seen the power of these 3 things assist health recovery and health optimization, over and over again.

One thing that I really admire about Dr. Johnson is that, if a person is not in immediate danger, he allows them to try addressing high cholesterol or blood sugar issues through diet, lifestyle changes, and supplements. Progress is tracked through powerful blood tests, showing the patient how their changes have impacted their health status. Not only can diet, lifestyle changes, and supplements help health issues, but they can assist or even supercharge medicines. So sometimes, supplements are added to a medicinal protocol to propel a patient towards their goals, or to protect them from the known side effects of a medication they must take.

All told, I’m pretty happy because I’m following my calling. I enjoy helping people explore their health, and Dr. Johnson’s office provides the opportunities for me to help people with their health journeys. I particularly like explaining the results of blood tests to patients, linking their diet and lifestyle habits with various results in the tests. If a patient is willing, I can then provide focused, customized nutrition counseling to help them meet their health goals. I love hearing someone thank me for the help I’ve given them, it’s what makes my career so rewarding and meaningful.
