LIFELONG ACNE, HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE
Kat is the only person who has ever truly helped me resolve my chronic health issues. I have had skin issues and impaired detoxification for as long as I can remember and I have literally tried everything with no results. Until I began working with Kat. She not only truly cares about her patients and is utterly committed to their getting well, but she also educates each patient so that they can continue on their journey of self-healing for years to come. She is able to deconstruct any disorder you have, and explain it in the simplest way so that it’s not scary and overwhelming to deal with. That is invaluable, in my opinion. I learned why I was imbalanced and exactly how to fix it with very common-sense approaches. She uses nutrition as the cornerstone of her healing approach and also offers acupuncture, cupping, whole food-based supplements as reinforcements. She is a wealth of knowledge. Honestly, there has never been a topic I’ve brought to her that she didn’t seem to be an expert on. And what she doesn’t know, she researches until she’s an expert on it! I’ve never met someone who is so committed to her work. If you’ve been struggling with health problems and tried everything to no avail–do yourself a favor and go get cured with Kat.
KAT IS A WELLNESS BADASS
I’ve been under Kat’s care on and off for the last three plus years. She has helped me tremendously in overcoming sometimes debilitating ailments. I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis which presents rarely in the stomach and had caused me serious illness and a journey through the medical industrial complex in search of answers and solutions. I was put on heavy medication and experienced over a year of uncertainty, side effects and illness. Through modification of lifestyle and diet I was able to overcome this disease and be asymptomatic for long stretches of time. I have experienced relapses of stomach pains and general fatigue and distress after having met Kat. She was able to treat my symptoms and give me great relief whenever I would have an episode. Her approach is holistic and the time she took to understand me as an individual and all of the potential causes, internal and external, allowed her to really focus on treating the whole patient. Primarily through acupuncture she was able to give me great relief. Kat is extremely knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to understand her clients. I’ve never met a practitioner such as Kat who is so invested in her clients that she will spend countless hours doing research and find the best approach to their care.
Part of Kat’s approach in treating my stomach issues and inflammatory issues was to recommend MRT (Mediator Release Test), which is an advanced food sensitivity test. This told me on a scale which foods and substances my body is most sensitive too. Turns out coffee and a few other foods I consumed regularly were very reactive for me. Modifying my diet accordingly produced immediate, profound results. She worked with me to understand the results and make recommendations on what to avoid and/or eat alternatively. She tracked my progress over many months and really helped me along, as it wasn’t easy to give up coffee. I was slowly able to reintroduce some of these foods and moderate.
I also broke my arm in a fall a couple of years ago and experienced severe pain and distress for many months. This also caused neck pain and phantom pains throughout my body. Whenever this happened Kat was quick to see me and relieve the pain. She would apply the many tools in her arsenal and her wealth of knowledge to get to the true source of the problem, many times not what I expected. She has a breadth of experience and know how which I value very much. Beyond that her calm and thoughtful approach always puts me at ease, even in times of distress. She is reliable and trustworthy. Kat is an amazing acupuncturist, care giver and all around wellness bad ass!
