I'm Brittany Beaver! I'm a registered dietitian and passionate about all things pregnancy and non-toxic living.
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 26 years old and was told I would be on medication for the rest of my life to manage my disease and to let my doctor know when I wanted to start a family and we could discuss safe options. I refused to believe diet and lifestyle played ZERO role in my autoimmune disease like my doctor told me and there started my healing and non-toxic journey.
I started doing my own research and discovered that eating an anti-inflammatory diet like Paleo helped my joints feel better but it was only a piece of the health puzzle. I quickly realized that what I was putting on my skin and surrounding myself with also played a huge role in my health. Knowing that everything around you has the potential to heal or hurt can be an overwhelming place to start. I want to help you in your healing journey by learning how to navigate each step along the way and making it feel attainable and less overwhelming.
I was completely shocked to learn about the lack of regulation in the personal care industry and felt so drawn to a company called Beautycounter. They are truly walking the walk with their unprecedented safety standards, advocacy work in Washington to push for health protective laws for everyone, and the performance of their products. I decided to join the movement and have been a consultant since January 2019. It's a huge part of my journey as I continue to educate and empower women to transition to safer products in their own homes.
I am a mom of 2 and even with a Master's Degree in nutrition, I still felt overwhelmed by all the nutrition information out there, especially during pregnancy. Pregnancy is arguably one of the most important times in a woman's life to optimize nutrition and health...you have the power to impact your child's health for a lifetime! I was also shocked by the lack of emphasis on preconception and male fertility health. I want to help you navigate your preconception, prenatal, and postpartum journey to optimize your health for the absolute best outcomes for you and your baby! If you need help navigating your own prenatal journey, let's work together!
