I have always struggled with chronic and mysterious digestive issues – though it wasn’t until I reached my early 20s that I received a diagnosis.
Hearing the confirmation that I was suffering from IBS, SIBO, and a gluten allergy was a relief, but something still wasn’t adding up. The doctors had told me that aside from gluten, the foods I consumed had nothing to do with my persistent health issues; it was simply the way my ‘body was acting’.
Unconvinced by this, I decided to take matters into my own hands – and I haven’t looked back since. Through discovering and learning more about paleo and autoimmune protocol (AIP) diets, the link between the foods I ate and the digestive distress I often experienced became crystal clear.
After a few months of following the AIP diet, healing my leaky gut, and prioritizing sleep and stress management, my health transformed. Everything seemed to be in remission: my crippling stomach pain, chronic headaches, and autoimmune issues.
The healing process also made me realize how much I cared about supporting other women with chronic illnesses to enjoy healthier and happier lives through nutrition and lifestyle – and from this emerged Vivra Wellness.
My name is Molly, and I’m a travel-obsessed sunshine-lover from Boston.
I’m also a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Natural Chef on a mission to help women with digestive and autoimmune conditions lead vibrant, thriving lives.
Everything comes down to consuming real food and embracing a more holistic lifestyle.
My love for food and nutrition came through my own health journey. For as long as I can remember I suffered from chronic and mysterious digestive issues. After receiving a diagnosis in my early 20’s of IBS, SIBO, and Celiac, I was told by doctors that the foods I was eating (other than gluten) had nothing to do with my persistent health issues, and that It was just the way my body was acting. I knew there had to be more too it, so I took matters into my own hands.This led me to finding the Paleo and Autoimmune Protocol diets and I never looked back. It only made sense to me that what I was putting in my body would be the root cause of my digestive distress. Within a few months of following the AIP diet, working on healing my leaky gut, and prioritizing sleep and stress management, I saw huge improvements in my health. My crippling stomach pain, daily headaches and autoimmune issues were all in remission. And I was able to heal from the inside out. Now I’m passionate about helping women with chronic illness live healthier, happier, lives through nutrition and lifestyle.
I've always loved cooking. I started watching Food Network at the age of 7 and never looked back. Rachael Ray was my role model and I would act out my own 30 Minute Meals in my mom's kitchen.
I've always had a really good memory and can remember even the smallest of details. sometimes this creeps people out so I often pretend not to remember things.
I don't like coffee. Like, at all.
I LOVE traveling and flying and have been to over 20 countries. I also lived in France and share some french inspired recipes on the blog.
I have 6 siblings. I'm right in the middle and I love it.
