Dr. Amy Eady, DNP, NA
Amy Eady is a Functional Medicine Lifestyle Educator who helps women struggling with hormone imbalances, including thyroid and adrenal dysfunction, PMS, PCOS, and other hormone related symptoms. Amy has experienced the first hand debilitating effects of hypothyroidism after her doctors surgically removed her thyroid, refused her replacement hormones, and dismissed her symptoms that resulted in her daily struggle with extreme fatigue and weight gain. When her doctors finally prescribed her medication she found that all of her symptoms didn’t just resolve. With doctors offering her little support, she turned to the power of diet and lifestyle intervention, which brought her greater energy, lasting weight loss, and improved fertility. She found her thyroid concerns being dismissed by her healthcare team once again as her hypothyroid symptoms came back with a vengeance during her pregnancy. It was then that she sought out the unique expertise of Dr. Brighten to aid in her thyroid condition and has been learning from her since. She continues to study under Dr. Brighten and is involved with all of her patient care.

Our symbol is more than just an “R” for Rubus. Rubus idaeus is the herb which strengthens and supports the womb space, which represents female health, energy, and abundance. Our mission is to support women by enhancing what their body and mind naturally know how to do, and by listening to the messages your body is trying to provide.
We don’t believe your body is rebelling against you. Your body is doing everything it can to ensure your survival—we just need to figure out how to give it the message that you are safe, which means finding your root cause and helping you heal.
The symbol of woman, the inverted triangle also represents the womb. As a root cause women’s medicine practice we support women at every stage of life with an understanding that each woman has their own individual needs.
Being a woman means having a body that is capable of creating life, which means regardless of your decision about having children, your body has unique needs that must be met in order to thrive.
The symbol of Earth represents our commitment to honoring your body’s wisdom and nature on our healing journey together. As an integrative practice, we utilize herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, stress reduction techniques, nature therapy and other modalities that sometimes get called Earth Medicine.
We also seek to understand the wisdom of nature and are committed to studying the research and educating ourselves about the tools and methods we use. We pride ourselves in being innovative practitioners.
