Dr. 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.
Amy earned her Doctorate in Nursing Practice at University of Tennessee, where she focused on family medicine. She has almost a decade of clinical experience and was a certified personal trainer prior to pursuing her career in nursing. Amy received post-doc training in Naturopathic & Functional Medicine under Dr. Jolene Brighten and is Naturopathic Assistant in the state of California.
She is a proud U.S. Coast Guard spouse and enjoys being immersed in the new cultures. She is a mother, dark chocolate lover, and can be found snuggled up with a good book in her free moments.Learn More About Working with Dr. Amy Eady
