My Story

I know all too well the feelings of overwhelm and unease where health is concerned.

My own history has been an adventure, to say the least. My search for answers to frustrating health issues started when I was a child as I struggled with allergies and weight issues. Then, as a young adult, still overweight, I lived with fatigue and hormone irregularities.  I mainlined candy in order to stay awake in college classes. After years of confusion about what was going on in my body, I was diagnosed with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

Jennifer_StartHerePageThen, in my mid-thirties, after working with an endocrinologist for years, I developed a large goiter which pressed against my windpipe.  Doctors recommended a thyroidectomy (removal of my thyroid) since they said my thyroid wasn’t working anyway. Pathology of my thyroid found cancer!

I thought I’d been a model patient and done everything right. It was not enough.

I was told that thyroid cancer was the easiest cancer to treat and that I’d be fine without my thyroid as long as I took my medication.  But it wasn’t as easy as doctors told me it would be. Within a few years, I found myself constantly exhausted, suffering from brain fog, overweight, and on three different anti-depressants.

When my daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and standard treatment with medication didn’t help, I began to feel like things were spiraling out of control.

I was determined to feel better and help my daughter, but I questioned whether traditional medicine was the answer. This lead me to a more holistic and functional approach.  One that made all the difference for me, and my daughter.

Let me share my approach with you.  Together we’ll get to the root cause of what you’re experiencing, so you can feel better.

What clients are saying

I didn’t know where or how to begin…

When I was told I was one glucose point away from pre-diabetes and diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I opened the numerous health and wellness books gathering dust on my shelves and became, very quickly, overwhelmed.  There was so much information and much of it conflicted.  I didn’t know where or how to begin, which meant my chances for long-term success were pretty slim.
Enter Jennifer Bannon.  Jennifer helped me sort out the help from the hype.  She has a tremendous wealth of both experiential and academic knowledge.  Jennifer’s numerous healthy, delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes helped jump-start me into a new way of cooking and eating.  She has a wonderful structure to create a gentle discipline for healthy living and offers substantial encouragement along the way.
I came away from our work together with a deeper understanding of what I need to do to take care of me and the tools to do it.

A more effective approach…

Before working with Jennifer, I had done more structured diet programs with dieticians and national programs.  Jennifer gave me a new and more effective way to change some of my patterns.  Through working with Jennifer, I experienced weight loss, increased energy and well-being, plus I started cooking new recipes and achieved better balance in my life as a mom, wife and Social Worker.
