Joanne (Jojo) Llaury-MarksNutritionist & Master Certified Health Coach
Hello! I’m Joanne, Jojo for short. Due to the long hours and strict deadlines at work, juggling children’s schedules, PTA mom activities, being a chauffeur, cook, and eating out frequently, it caused me to experience a number of health issues and lack of energy. I was diagnosed with being overweight, prediabetic, migraine headaches with auras, and experienced stroke like symptoms which was extremely concerning since I had young children. In addition, my youngest daughter was experiencing food sensitivities and I felt so overwhelmed with the information I found online that I did not how to help her and myself successfully or even where to start. These concerns really made me evaluate my health and the choices I was making for the health of my family.
Through years of education and hands-on training, I was able to obtain a better understanding of how our bodies work, why we eat the way we do, and how to avoid or completely eliminate flare-ups. The personal success my family experienced really motivated me to share my knowledge and experiences with others. This decision has made such an amazing impact on my life and those that I’ve shared the functional method with. I love working with busy moms.
Let food be thy medicine & medicine be thy food.
The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with NUTRITION.
