Ms. Kimberley Hall is a Nutrition Therapist.
My passion for and commitment to health and wellness grew out of my personal experience with chronic illness. Starting at the age of 16, I spent over a decade going from doctor to doctor, receiving no answers, and feeling even more lost after each visit. While knowledgeable, each one had a different approach and perspective that led me down a series of detoured paths with short-term prescriptions (usually steroids) and no understanding of the deeper, underlying ailments.
I lived with chronic nasal issues (imagine a perpetual bad cold) and had to blow my nose just to taste food; layered on top of chronic itchy skin, psoriasis, itchy ears, foggy head, chronic fatigue, and more. I continued to endure my symptoms through two pregnancies (a boy and girl, Miles and Anna), but after the birth of Anna at age 29, I truly felt I was not going to live long and could not be the mother I wanted to be due to this mysterious illness taking over my life. At the same time, Miles (just two years old at the time) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and Celiac Disease. The culmination of these events pushed me to the breaking point: I knew I would never stop working to heal myself and my family.
I have always had a natural curiosity for the human body and our complex world, which drove me to receive a BS in Biology at Western Washington University in 2005. Yet, the connections between food, nutrients, our bodies, the earth, and full health took me longer to develop. I ultimately found my way towards healing through integrative and functional medicine practices.
Once I discovered that everything I was putting into my body was affecting me, my personal experimenting began. For the last decade, I tried and tested nearly every diet and detox, deepening my understanding of how different approaches influenced my own health. I also completed my MS in Nutrition and Integrative Health at The Maryland University of Integrative Health, further enhancing my scientific and empirical understanding of overall wellness, and how unique individuals are influenced by these different dietary and lifestyle approaches. This comprehensive background in health and wellness allowed for my own healing brought immense influence to my family’s health and gave me the passion to reach beyond my family. I now live symptom-free, full of energy, and a strong desire to help others heal their own bodies and minds.
