A Personal Journey to Health
Frankie’s story is not just about personal triumph but also about her mission to make nutritional guidance accessible to all. She specializes in helping individuals navigate the complex world of hormone imbalances, from thyroid issues to weight loss and auto-immune conditions.
The Carnivore Connection
One of the most striking aspects of Frankie’s approach is the incorporation of a carnivore diet to support thyroid health. While this may seem counterintuitive to some, Frankie has found that a diet focusing on high-quality animal proteins can significantly improve thyroid function, especially for those with thyroid deficiencies.
Beyond Quick Fixes
In our conversation, Frankie emphasized the importance of a long-term, sustainable approach to health. Quick fixes might offer temporary relief, but true wellness comes from a consistent focus on nurturing the body from the inside out.
