Amy Kinzie is a Functional Nutrition & Health Educator for Integrated Health. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with her B.S. in Biomedical Science and Clinical Nutrition from the National University of Health Sciences. She has worked as a naturopathic practitioner and health educator at various clinics in the Chicagoland area. She completed her internship with functional blood chemistry analysis and metabolic nutrition with Jim Marlowe, a chief nutritionist from the Mercola Clinic.
Amy specializes 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.
The inspiration for the work she has chosen comes from her 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. At a young age, I learned that conventional medicine had very little to offer in the way of helping someone truly heal. If I wanted to truly heal, I knew I needed to find the right teachers and take responsibility for my health.”
After working with a nutritionist who introduced her to the benefits of ancestral foods and a chiropractor who developed a homeopathy system, Amy’s health started to improve.
