HI, I'M JENN!

Certified Emotion Code Practitioner (CECP)
For years I struggled with chronic stomach issues, inflammation, and joint & muscle pain. I tried virtually every medication, multiple doctors, and undergoing invasive procedures. I suffered from painful bloating, acid reflux, indigestion, constipation, ulcers, gastritis/GERD, acne, fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, depression, back, neck, & shoulder pain, and more. Left hopeless by doctors, I was physically and mentally exhausted as nothing worked; and instead of getting better, I was only getting worse.
After years of suffering without relief, eventually, I couldn’t eat or drink anything without severe pain, and was convinced I would have to live this way for the rest of my life. I barely enjoyed life anymore, constantly sick, in pain, scared to eat, and completely uncomfortable in my own body. I knew there had to be a way to truly heal and get back to enjoying life, so I sought out to find a solution to my problems. That’s when I discovered natural, holistic health. I quickly uncovered the root cause of my symptoms, and learned I suffered from SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), plenty of nutrient deficiencies, food intolerances, digestive dysfunction, and more which were causing my issues. My journey to healing began. I learned the power of food as medicine, cleaned up my diet, changed my habits, and adopted a new healthy lifestyle.
I watched the symptoms that ruled my life disappear.
At the same time, I lacked confidence in my body and overall physical appearance. I hated cardio, yet forced myself to do it because I thought it would make me "skinny". I started getting more into resistance training, but found it challenging with my chronic pain and injuries which also disrupted my daily life. I soon discovered corrective exercise and functional fitness which completely changed my life. I got to the root of my chronic muscle & joint pain, fixed my posture, and restored mobility, flexibility, & strength through exercise. I finally was able to sleep, sit, and carry out everyday tasks without pain! I developed a consistent training routine which helped me maintain a pain-free body and transform it into a strong, resilient one that I feel confident in.
This life-changing experience compelled me to want to help others as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Personal Trainer, and healer. I started JTH Wellness, which stands for “Journey to Health”, to guide, educate, and empower others on their healing journey. Now, I work one-on-one with clients to restore their health, confidence, and enjoyment of life by uncovering the root of their symptoms, upgrading their diet and lifestyle, guiding them to adopt a positive relationship with food & exercise, and helping them achieve a strong, pain-free body they can feel good in. I specialize in improving gut health & digestive issues, relationship with food, weight management & building lean muscle, body image & confidence, mental health, energy & sleep, physical strength, and pain management.
