Sarah Gilbert

Health Coach

I received my Functional Medicine Coaching certification from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, currently the only training program designed and delivered in collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine. I have studied homeopathy, active listening techniques, diet, and alternative medicine for the last ten years. As someone who suffers from severe fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, I understand the frustration of feeling that things are never going to get better. As wonderful as our Western healthcare system can be, (and I have been privileged to work with some truly caring doctors) I have often felt that there is a gap between the help they are able to offer me, and the point at which my condition actually improves. In other words, I find myself needing more support than my biannual doctor visits provide. Sometimes I just need someone to help me get motivated to keep following a healthy diet, or to exercise when I am exhausted or in pain. After studying with the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, I have come to believe that Functional Medicine Health Coaches can help to bridge this gap. My goal is to bring hope, perspective, and direction to clients who feel lost or helpless in their search for health.
