My name is Amy Kinzie. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my B.S. in Biomedical Science and Clinical Nutrition from National University of Health Sciences. I have worked as a naturopathic practitioner and health educator at various clinics in the Chicagoland area. I completed my internship with functional blood chemistry analysis and metabolic nutrition with Jim Marlowe, chief nutritionist from the Mercola Clinic. I have recently moved my practice to southern Illinois.
I specialize in nutritional solutions for adults and children with complex chronic illnesses, including allergies, auto-immune disease, cancer, hormone balance, Lyme disease, migraine headaches, mold illness, and food sensitivities.
My inspiration for the work I have chosen comes from my own health journey. At the age of 19 I became very ill with a rare auto-immune disease that shut down my digestive system. I also developed asthma, migraines, muscle wasting, and lost the ability to eat solid foods. I learned at a young age that conventional medicine had very little to offer in the way of helping someone to truly heal. If I wanted to truly heal I knew I needed to find the right teachers and take responsibility for my own health.
With the help of a nutritionist, who introduced me to the benefits of ancestral foods, and ultimately a chiropractor who had developed his own system of homeopathy, I was able to heal my body, and uncover the mystery of why I had lost my health.
