Brooke Boskovich, MS, RD, LDN
Licensed & Registered Dietitian
Hi! I’m Brooke.
I’m not going to bore you with my education and credentials*, instead I’m going to share with you WHY I became a dietitian.
For years I struggled with extreme fatigue, hair loss, acne on my chest and back, irregular menstrual cycles, severe abdominal pain, and periods of constipation followed by diarrhea. My general practitioner told me to take birth control, a GI specialist “diagnosed” me with IBS but NOTHING changed…other than the number of pills I was taking. My symptoms actually got progressively worse. A few more years and doctors later I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Celiac Disease. BAM! All of my symptoms started making sense. You see, these are both autoimmune disorders and influence one another, meaning their treatment goes hand-in-hand too!
I’m not sharing this story for sympathy, but to let you know that I understand what it’s like to be in pain, to feel like you have no control of your body, and to feel alone in searching for answers that nobody seems to have.
So, why did I become a dietitian!? I became a dietitian because I want to help YOU discover what your individual disease pattern is, teach you about why that’s happening and give you scientifically proven tools to fix it. Through all of my education and training I have learned that you must treat the ROOT CAUSE of the illness, NOT the symptoms.
You don’t have to go through this alone. Schedule a free consult today.
*Incase you are curious about what the letters after my name stand for: I have a Master of Science in Food and Nutrition (MS). I meet all of the criteria to be a Registered Dietitian or RD (years of biochemistry, nutrition science, anatomy & physiology, food science + 1 year-long dietetic internship and rigorous testing to prove I know my stuff). I am also licensed by the Board of Licensed Dietitians under Oregon Health Licensing criteria (LDN). These letters mean I must meet ongoing continued education criteria (yearly!) to maintain my credentials as a registered and licensed health professional. In addition to these letters, I have training in Integrative and Functional Nutrition, digestive health specific to gut microbiome, nutrigenomics training, and advanced training in women’s health and nutrition specific to hormone balance, fertility & cycle health, pregnancy and postpartum healing.
