My Story – Dr. Jennifer Burns
Over 20 years ago I was diagnosed with IBS. Not much was known about it then. Doctors did not know how to treat it or what may have caused it. Having IBS started me on a journey of discovery of self and natural medicine. Along my journey I discovered what foods I could and could not eat. I realized that stress would make my symptoms worse. I was making a whole lifestyle change so I could go to work or to the store without having to use the bathroom so often or feel so sick.
During my time of great learning I obtained my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. I received my life coaching certification from The Arbinger Institute. I used the methods I learned from these two institutions to help my patients. I continued my journey with learning all I could about the health benefits of medical marijuana. I knew there was more I could offer my patients. I was seeing how medical marijuana was helping to ease my patients pain emotionally and physically. I knew there had to be more to it. I started to study energy medicine and became a level 4 Reiki Master along with studying brain health and got my certification in brain health coach from Dr. Daniel Amens’ University. To round it all off I received my level 1 Precision Nutrition Coaching certification too.
With all the combined knowledge from these institutions, plus other knowledge I have acquired I get excited every time one of my patients walks through the door of my office or calls me on the phone. I know I can help bring them to optimal health through individualized treatment using the eclectic knowledge I have gathered from my years of learning and what I still learn today. There is always something new to learn and offer to my patients.
