Practitioner Spotlight with Rebecca Pemberton

In 1998, Rebecca had a high-stress job placing nurses at a major hospital in Atlanta – and all the unhealthy habits that came along with it – eating on the run, being on call all hours of the day & night.   During a routine dental appointment, when the hygiene tools were placed on her chest, she found it was very painful.  Rebecca’s dentist recommended that she see a rheumatologist because she might have this new thing called fibromyalgia.  Rebecca said she had an easy diagnosis of fibromyalgia, back when people were being told it was all in their heads with all 18 trigger points being active.  She spent the next eighteen or so months trying to work out a care plan, but basically wound up on some heavy duty medications and being bed-ridden!

After completing a Bachelors in Holistic Nutrition, Rebecca and her husband adopted their daughters. 
Caring for them, with all of their health challenges made it very clear that she was going to have to be very intentional with their care plan.  While the degree in holistic nutrition provided a lot of great theory, it didn’t provide a lot of tools.  So, in searching for online lab testing for one of her daughters, Rebecca came across FDN and immediately signed up. The education and tools in FDN hasn’t just helped Rebecca with her own health but their three daughters have really benefited as well.
