Do you eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, and still feel fatigued? You may be suffering from parasites or heavy metal toxicity. Sarah Holgen is a Functional Medicine Expert and Certified nutritionist who is sharing the power of root cause medicine with the world.


After healing herself of stage 3 melanoma through holistic means and without any chemotherapy, her eyes were opened to new possibilities. Years later she began suffering migraines and realized that there may be even more issues to address than she realized.
