#33 NP and Functional Wellness Coach for Nurses - Ebony Jenkins
Ebony uses her knowledge as a nurse practitioner and a functional wellness specialist to help other nurses optimize their personal health naturally, with ease and guidance. She has been able to improve her personal health, manage her congenital heart disease, and take herself off of prescription medications with proper diet, lifestyle, and natural supplementation alone.
Nurses often dedicate so much time and effort into helping other people, that they don't do the best job of taking care of their own health and wellness needs. This leads many nurses to have problems with weight loss, chronic fatigue, and chronic illnesses that they are unable to effectively manage themselves.
Ebony's goal is to transform the health of as many nurses as possible, so they can become the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves, allowing them to better care for others.
