Hi friends! I’m SO PUMPED to be welcoming a friend of mine to the podcast: Sara Garverick.
Her Instagram page constantly blows my mind, and she shares so much knowledge and tips. Definitely give her a follow.101: Mineral imbalances, vitamin D, and supplements with Sara Garverick, IHP, PN1
Here are some of the things we talk about in today’s episode:
- Her personal background and what made her decide to become an Integrative Health Practitioner (the certs I’m taking right now! You can use FITNESSISTA for $100 off level one, and $250 off levels 1 and 2))
- Excess iron, even for those who may be considered anemic
- How minerals and imbalances affect our hormones
- Vitamin D, and why taking megadoses might not be the right answer
And so.much.more.If you’re not familiar with Sara, here’s a little bit more about her:
Sara Garverick began building a passion for health and wellness while working full time as a Mechanical Engineer for the U.S. Air Force. In her mid-30s she learned of, and recovered from, the complicated symptoms associated with post birth control syndrome, through the works of Dr. Lara Briden and Dr. Jolene Brighten. Over the years she encountered coworkers, friends and acquaintances struggling with various health conditions including low stomach acid, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, hypothyroidism, gallbladder removal complications, knee replacements, cystic acne, PCOS, post birth control syndrome, infertility and more, and knew she wanted to better understand the body to help people believe their health diagnosis is not something to accept, but instead to improve or reverse.
Bringing her analytical skillset (some might just say engineering and math nerdiness), and additional health science-related coursework from college, she is working hard to marry those approaches with her knowledge of functional medicine, integrative health (IHP Level 1 & 2), personal training (ACE), health coaching, nutrition (Precision Nutrition Level 1), strength training, bloodwork education, liver detoxification, mineral rebalancing and more, in order to help clients rebuild their body, health and confidence.
