About Us

Tammy Gallagher, Functional Nutrition Practitioner, has been serving Charlotte and helping her patients lose weight and so much more. People come to her for weight loss and become healthier in the process. This is not Tammy's first career, but she was going down the wrong health road and decided to go back to college in her 50s just to learn how to live a healthy life.

At age 26, she was obese, had high blood pressure and cholesterol, and was prediabetic. She visited gastroenterologists, weight loss doctors, and more, without getting her digestive symptoms any relief. Tammy later developed Crohn's disease and had an abscess in her colon, which caused it to rupture. She ultimately lost her colon, and she even had a stroke. That is when she finally decided to take charge of her life, and she took the path of becoming a functional nutrition practitioner.

Tammy looks at wellness by starting with the basics, and getting more specific after she clears the muddy waters:

Tier 1: The non-negotiables - There are some simple things that must happen for the body to be able to be healthy.

  • Sleep - rest equals rejuvination.
  • Elimination - if you're not eliminating waste properly, your body won't eliminate waste properly.
  • Water - so much within your body needs hydration, and you simply cannot function without it.
  • Blood Sugar - the hormonal chaos by having unstable blood sugar creates major challenges that none of us need.

Tier 2: Heal and seal the gut...and determine what is necessary to keep it that way. Without a healthy gut, there's no way to be healthy.

Tier 3: Take deficiency to sufficiency...we often find that after working through Tier 1 and 2 issues, there are no Tier 3 issues. But when there is, we need to resolve them through diet, lifestyle or supplementation.
