Hannah Nicholson, BS, FMCHC
Functional Medicine Consultant
Hannah’s love of health is personal. She took her health back for her family after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2019. Ask her today and she will tell you all about how MS was the best gift she ever received. Leading up to this diagnosis, she was sick all of the time and had both physical and emotional symptoms that could not be pinned down by any conventional practitioners. Immediately after her diagnosis, her cousin reached out and shared what Functional Medicine is – changing her life. She cannot thank God enough for that moment of sharing and owes a lot of her healing to the key principles of FM.
Her love of learning led her into health coaching and Hannah is a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. She has worked with Functional Medicine practitioners and health coaches to dig down to the root cause of her own autoimmune challenges, ultimately changing her health for the better. Hannah now lives a gluten-free, dairy-free (mostly) life, coupling her love of food as a healing mechanism with yoga and nature. She likes to be reminded that she is human and must give herself grace every day. Through her work with her own health coach, she has developed the mindset that MS is just a code on an insurance form – it does not define her – and God owns her path in this life.
Hannah lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, young son, and three furbabies. She is passionate about all things that involve fresh air and the sunshine and when she’s not working, you’ll find her with family or in the garden. She especially geeks out about working with women preconception, during pregnancy, and postpartum. Prior to getting pregnant, she focused on the nutrients her body needed to not only sustain the health she was building back up for herself, but also to set her unborn baby up for success. She worked to build resilience in her mind and physically prepare her body for the incredible changes it would experience during pregnancy. Her very happy and healthy bundle of joy, Oliver, was born in August 2020. Her birth was empowering and redeeming and it was a team effort she will never forget. She attributes her quick physical and emotional recovery to the health protocols she put into play Day 1, when Oliver was just a thought.
