Hello! I’m Pamela Reilly, Naturopathic Nutritionist, CNHP, CNC, CPH. I have over 25 years of experience, training and research in natural wellness topics. My passion is to equip and encourage my clients to use completely natural methods to achieve the highest degree of wellness possible.
My interest in natural health care came as the result of over twelve years of being almost bedridden due to a collection of mysterious symptoms and illnesses. Mainstream physicians tested me for everything possible, but could find nothing wrong and could do nothing to alleviate my symptoms. During that time, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis three times (incorrectly), depression, chronic anemia, chronic sinusitis, severe environmental allergie, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, multiple neurological symptoms, and more. I took 16 prescription medications on a daily basis. In spite of all the medications I was taking, I still felt horrible. Every aspect of my life and my relationships was affected by my condition, but no one had any answers.
During this time, it occurred to me that every medical professional I saw was trying to fit my symptoms into a diagnosis instead of trying to figure out what was causing the symptoms. I recognized the futility of this approach and decided the only way to regain wellness would be for me to identify the cause of my symptoms and focus on addressing the cause instead of merely letting doctors patch my symptoms.
Determined to rise above my exhaustion and other health problems, I broadened my hobby of herbalism and natural remedies and began doing deep research and formal study. I soon identified the causes of my issues – many of which could have been identified if proper testing had been done – and soon began feeling much better. I identified issues such as food allergies, Candida overgrowth, hypothyroidism (the incorrect tests were run), nutritional deficiencies and more. I addressed each of these issues using natural modalities and soon recovered. Regaining the ability to live a normal life inspired me to commit to helping others do the same.
As my health improved and I continued researching natural health topics, I pursued certifications and training that equipped and qualified me to help others. My research continues today. I a Naturopathic Physician and am completing a Master Herbalist certification and other studies to complement my existing certifications. I also constantly seek opportunities to receive training on new healing methods. I currently am a Naturopathic Physician, Certified Natural Health Practitioner, Certified Nutrition Counselor, Certified Aromatherapist, and Certified Practicing Herbalist. I also have certifications in Women’s Health, Light Touch Therapy, Thyroid Health and more. I continually pursue additional certifications and training to further equip me to help others.
I’m pleased to say I am now healthy and free of my former debilitating symptoms, including the neurological symptoms that led to my MS diagnoses. I no longer suffer from debilitating exhaustion, and wake up every day feeling positive and healthy. The only prescription medications I currently take are insulin and a natural thyroid hormone. I still have challenges which I have to monitor, but every challenge provides learning opportunities which help me provide better education and assistance to my clients. I can now give thanks for the issues I’ve experienced, as I recognize that they make me a better practitioner.
Because of my own health experiences, I am filled with compassion for anyone who’s feeling unwell but cannot find answers or relief. I believe my experiences provide me with an acute empathy for the sufferings of others. I possess the training and knowledge needed to support, coach and encourage others to achieve the wellness God intends for them. I am committed to never letting my clients fail in meeting their wellness goals.
In addition to my private practice, I now travel nationwide speaking on natural health topics and empowering others to identify the cause of their health issues and reverse their challenges.
