Stephanie Owen is a Pharmacist and a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who has found her passion in uniting conventional medicine with nutritional therapy using a bio-individual approach. Stephanie’s focus is to reverse the epidemic of preventable poor health by educating and empowering her clients. Her foundational, holistic approach focuses on the importance of a properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole-food diet with a well-balanced lifestyle.
Our healthcare system is broken! In order to fix it we have to use a bio-individual approach to bring balance back to our body by focusing on the foundations of health which include; digestion, blood sugar, minerals, fatty acids, and hydration. Although doctors appreciate the importance of proper diet and nutritional supplementation, it is often difficult for them to spend time conducting the proper evaluation and counseling necessary to support optimal healing. This is where Stephanie can help. By working alongside your practitioners to support the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment plan.
Her approach goes beyond nutrient-dense food and also considers the impacts of sleep, stress, socioeconomics, and the environment on your well-being. Her focus is on preventative medicine, blood sugar balance, gut health, drug and nutrient depletion, and comprehensive medication management.
Stephanie graduated from Roseman University of Health Sciences in Henderson, NV. Upon graduating and moving to Texas she became the Pharmacist in charge at her local retail pharmacy and has been in that position for 11 years. She has been voted one of the best Pharmacist by her community Best of Magazine and has been nominated a Paragon Award winner by her company. Having managed her pharmacy for soo many years she has been able to customize her services and take her counseling to the next level by incorporating supplement regimens, lifestyle changes, and meal plans.
After her youngest son developed eczema at the age of 18 months and not wanting to go the conventional route, she found a pediatric functional medicine doctor and was in awe of her approach to finding the root cause of his issues. This propelled Stephanie into wanting to learn more about healing the body from the inside out.
She went on to attend the Nutritional Therapy Association where she graduated as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. She is a life long learner, spending her free time reading the latest health book, watching webinars and attending workshops to learn more ways she can bring value and health to her clients.
Stephanie resides in Texas outside of Houston with her husband and 3 young boys. They are heavily involved in the motocross scene. You will often find her driving from state to state so her boys can race their dirt bikes. She understands how important starting the conversation around how foods affect our bodies and the importance of exercise is at a young age. Having a child with H.pylori and eczema at the age of 18 months opened her eyes to the importance of food as medicine. Her favorite slogan is "you gotta nourish to flourish!"
But she also knows how hard is is to be a busy working parent who wants to provide healthy, affordable meals. Making practical, small, daily healthy habits is very much doable in our busy lives.
In her spare time Stephanie also likes a good romance novel, lifting weights, online shopping, and listening to a good beauty junkie podcast.
