I’m so happy you are here, I’m Sophia, founder of Sophia Crystal Wellness. I am an Integrative Health Practitioner and trained through Emily Morrow, FNTP/IHP to interpret Blood Work with a Functional Health / Root Cause detective approach.
After experiencing my own frustrations while trying to find help for my husband after his health scare in 2019, I was determined to learn more so I could better advocate for myself and my loved ones. I received my certification as an Integrative Health Practitioner and launched my practice to serve more women in their own health journeys. So much of allopathic health care is focused on giving you a name or a diagnosis for what you are experiencing. This can bring a lot of relief – however a diagnosis is a clue as to what’s happening in the body – not the true root cause. I think it is key to explore the why you are not feeling well and discover the root cause to bring the body into balance.
My Why – My husband got sick in 2019 after visiting family in Mexico. When he returned he was down 30 pounds, couldn’t eat, and was anything but himself. After seeing doctor after doctor who only could offer that everything was normal, his labs were fine. He got a blanket diagnosis of IBS, prescribed some pills, told it was in his head, and sent on his way. Frustrated and confused my husband turned to me and exclaimed “I don’t feel myself.”His pain led me to take matters into my own hands, I found Emily Morrow, FNTP/IHP who offered a lot of helpful information on her channels and guidance on where to start and what to explore. For the next few months, we worked on opening his drainage pathways, supporting his gut. We then moved to kill parasites, this was a huge turning point for him – for the first time in 6 months he started to come back to himself.
