I’m Donna – A health and wellness professional on a journey to discover the root cause of disease by creating  balance between nutrition and medicine.


From a young age, I always had a passion for natural healing and preventative care. After obtaining a Doctorate in Pharmacy, this passion became an obsession as my learnings conflicted with my core beliefs. While I maintained what I thought was a healthy lifestyle, my world came to a crashing halt in 2015 when I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis.

 I couldn’t understand why I had developed an autoimmune disease. I started to question, why people develop Autoimmune disorders and why is it that the human body fights itself?

Then The Research Began…

After doing my own research, I discovered there was not a concrete answer to any of my questions. But I did discover that nutrition plays a critical role.  Nutrition was never taught to be a critical component in health and human disease through conventional medical training.

For this reason, I embarked on a journey to gain knowledge in the field of Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition. Through this path Dr.AutoimmuneGirl was born. A blog with a mission to identify the root cause of disease through health and wellness, and create the balance between nutrition and medicine.

Follow along and join me on this journey of discovery!
