Dr. Grams takes a “Mindset First” approach to healthcare and has dedicated herself to helping people overcome anxiety, reclaim their health and empower their life. Her focus is on using stress reduction, nutrition and lifestyle to improve GI disorders, toxic burden, diabetes and heart health.
By combining Functional Medicine with holistic life and health coaching, she creates the opportunity for her clients to tap into their full potential, both physically and mentally. She understands how difficult change can be and her commitment is to figuring out which simple, actionable steps used in very meaningful ways will help clients feel worthy and achieve their health goals.
As a recovering high-anxiety, do-it-all-herself type of person, she strives to share her experience and knowledge with her clients to help them gain a sense of inner calm and guide them to stop managing their symptoms and start treating the underlying causes of their ailments.
"Dr. Grams joined the PharmToTable team in 2020. She is currently pursuing Functional Medicine Practitioner Certification through the prestigious Institute for Functional Medicine and has completed the ""Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice"" (AFMCP) course as well as the GI, Environmental Health, Cardiometabolic and Immune modules.
A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Pharmacy, she worked in community pharmacy for over 12 years in Madison and across Wisconsin before stepping into the Functional Medicine world and founding Offbeat Health, LLC.
She is a Diabetes Prevention Lifestyle Coach, and has lectured on adrenal health at the LECOM School of Pharmacy in Bradenton, FL. "
Dr. Grams is a small town, Wisconsin-raised girl who struggled to find deep fulfillment in her life. Throughout her twenties, having a good job, getting married and traveling brought contentment, but she knew deep down that something was still missing. Something she couldn't quite put her finger on.
With a passion for the environment, she felt as though she was living two separate lives - one as an imperfect zero-waste advocate running a global plastic-free support group and the other as a pharmacist in the community. It was discovering Functional Medicine that finally joined the two sides together - the health of the planet impacts the health of the people living on it, and finally everything made sense!
After initially resisting the career shift, coaching helped Dr. Grams to overcome her own anxiety, gain confidence and fully pursue her desire to help others. It was also through this that she finally embraced the life coach within her and is now able to share these gifts of finding clarity and purpose with her clients.
