Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Munnelly.
Heather, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Hi, I’m Heather. Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, detox coach, and lover of holistic living, travel, the beach, and, of course, my four-legged wing girl. My passion for nutrition + detox developed sort of by accident over the last decade. For years I struggled with my own health issues that stumped doctors of all specialties and backgrounds. I decided that if no one else could help me, I would have to take things into my own hands and find a way to heal myself. This is when I discovered the power of healing through food and eventually detoxification.
Tired of feeling sick and tired, I quit my job working as a documentary film producer and threw myself wholeheartedly into healing myself. I watched every health film, read as many books as I could get my hands on and studied all corners of the health and wellness industry. I traveled to areas of Asia known to be meccas for healing (Bali, India, etc.) so I could try different alternative healing and detox therapies. At that time, I also took a deep dive into yoga, breathwork, and the spiritual and emotional components of healing.
My understanding of environmental toxicity came a bit later, but when I began addressing my own toxicity as an underlying root cause of my health issues, I knew instantly that this was the missing puzzle piece I’d been looking for, and that the reason I’d been gifted my illness to begin with was so I could discover the path back to health and share it with others. I knew in discovering detoxification, I’d found my solution, passion, and life’s purpose all in one.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My commitment to finding answers on my journey was costly, long and at times involved setbacks. I had to say goodbye to a job I loved and was good at because it was keeping me stressed when my body needed space to heal. I lost friends and loved ones along my journey. But I learned that if you’re committed to finding answers, you will find them, and you’ll call in people that will support you along the way.
It’s also through these challenges that passion is created – and there’s nothing more fulfilling than having a deep, visceral passion for something in your life. We earn our passions just like we earn our scars.
We’d love to hear more about your practice.
I’m a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) who specializes in detoxification of heavy metals and biotoxins. A biotoxin is a toxin created by a microbial organism living within the body. Some examples of microbes include: mold, fungi/yeast (ex: Candida), and chronic bacterial/viral infections like Lyme Disease and EBV, respectively. Parasitic infections can also create biotoxins. Many people I’ve worked with are surprised to discover they have hidden infections and toxins at the root of their symptoms.
I help people discover the root cause of their low energy, bloat, anxiety and brain fog and guide them back to thriving through nutritional therapy and detox. I love working with women in their 20’s-30’s who struggle with fatigue. I help them reduce their toxic load so they can have more energy to chase their dreams and be the best version of themself. Targeted nutrition and supplementation, as well as daily detoxification methods, can truly be game-changing for these women. I’m honored to be able to guide people back into their light and power, so they can thrive.
Do you recommend any apps, books or podcasts that have been helpful to you?
Oh, gosh, so many! I love all the biohacking podcasts, like Luke Storey’s “The Life Stylist,” Dave Asprey’s “Bulletproof Radio,” etc. I love reading and read a lot of books about nutrition, detox, and holistic health, as well as energy, manifestation, and travel. That’s pretty much it 🙂
