Well Empowered



Dr. Jessica Hehmeyer launched Well Empowered with one goal in mind: to help people produce radical health breakthroughs that add vitality and years to their lives. She takes a data-driven, outcome-oriented, natural approach to producing transformative results.

Working with people one-on-one, she identifies the root cause of symptoms and conditions and targets solutions that tap into the body’s tremendous ability to heal. Employing a full range of clinical, academic and research-based analyses, Dr. Hehmeyer uses food, botanicals and lifestyle interventions that are tailored to individual goals and needs. These breakthroughs are supported by the three fundamental principles that guide her work: inspiration, information, and strategy. 

Dr. Hehmeyer commonly works with people who have been unsuccessful in finding solutions in conventional medicine or are seeking to integrate a natural approach in conjunction with a conventional approach. Conditions that people seek her care for include: 

  • Digestive distress
  • Weight optimization, especially working with those who have a history of struggling to lose and sustain a desirable weight
  • Asthma
  • Recurrent infections/immune system support
  • Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes/Pre-Diabetes
  • Fatigue
  • Autoimmune conditions 

Dr. Hehmeyer received her Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States, Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences, and Bachelor of Arts from University of California, Los Angeles. She is an IFM Certified Practitioner, a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN), a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and has learned from various physicians at the forefront of Functional Medicine including Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Tom O'Bryan and Dr. Datis Kharrazian. Prior to attending graduate school, she established herself as an expert in the fitness industry as a Certified Yoga Instructor and Master Level Certified SuperSlow High Intensity Strength Trainer. Dr. Hehmeyer was a founder and managing partner of the first high intensity personal strength training facility in Chicago, CityWide SuperSlow (CWSS). She continues to “practice what she preaches”.  In her spare time, you will find her doing yoga with her husband, hitting the weights at CWSS, or preparing a beautiful, healthy meal for loved ones.
