ROBYN JOHNSON MS, RDN, LD, CLT
I caught the health bug from my dad at an early age and began studying nutrition in college. I was practicing everything I was learning but at age 20, I developed guttate psoriasis (a scaly skin condition - google image if you dare). It essentially covered my entire body except for my face. The condition is obvious from a physical standpoint, but wrecked me emotionally.
After two years of doctors, dermatologists, and different medications, I had had enough! I was not myself and found that it was affecting my relationships (with people and food) and it definitely took a toll on my self-esteem. Medically, the next step was trying an immunosuppressant drug and I didn't feel like that was my answer.
This is when I started playing detective or nutrition-super-scientist. I dove into the research and starting tweaking my nutrition. I won't go through details here but fast-forward to today and I'm psoriasis-free (with no medications). I learned to use the power of food and lifestyle and I finally understood why I developed it in the first place (many light bulb moments). I understood the root cause!
Addressing the root cause of my psoriasis changed my life and after that experience, I dove into training in Dietetics and Integrative Medicine! My passion is to partner with clients and teach them not only what their body needs but why it matters specifically to them and how to merge it with their reality of daily life. Food is powerful medicine when you know how to use it!
Here’s to health,
