Well Empowered



 My life has completely changed for the better upon being introduced to Dr. Hehmeyer. Prior to seeing Dr. Hehmeyer, I would get sick multiple times throughout a year. This went on for several years, and conventional doctors told me it was either normal, or they did not have a solution. After missing my children's events, and missing time from work, I knew there had to be a better way to address my issues. I decided to try functional medicine, and Dr. Hehmeyer listened to all my issues, and developed a specific plan to address them. Now, I have more energy, and have not been sick for over a year. This was life changing for me, and I owe this life changing health to Dr. Hehmeyer, and the knowledge and attention she provided to me.  Thanks Doctor!

I have been working with Well Empowered for about two years now and cannot say enough about this practice! Dr. Hehmeyer is truly dedicated to helping her patients and leading them to better choices and a healthier lifestyle. I came to her with serious digestion and pain concerns. Within a month of following her diet and supplement protocol, I can honestly say I am now pain free and feeling so much more energy than I ever have before. Jessie works with you to make small changes in your diet and lifestyle and is totally down to earth about 

not changing everything in one day! 

She is beyond approachable and just seriously there for you with any question or concern you have along the way. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to change the way they feel without the use of prescription drugs. I cannot say enough good things about her!

Dr .H is so much more than a nutritionist. She helped me adopt a whole new approach to living a healthy lifestyle. She helped me reduce my cholesterol, my blood pressure, and my inflammation and blood sugar levels. She taught me how to incorporate new daily routines and form healthy eating habits that have stuck with me. Most importantly, she showed me how to maintain a positive emotional and mental outlook as I continue in my work to permanently change the way I live my life.

 I had been struggling with a series of health issues for years – all different, and all seemingly unrelated.  I was running out of hope for answers, and when a colleague recommended Dr H as someone who could help, I wasn’t sure.  I am SO grateful I decided to make that call.  From our very first conversation, she was able to connect the dots and bring clarity to so much. I felt heard, safe, and genuinely cared for in every interaction, and have made great progress in so many areas of my health. Challenges that I have been dealing with for years are disappearing, and I am remembering what it feels like to have energy again!  Her approach is thoughtful, supportive, non-judgmental and motivating.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.

 A little over six months ago I contacted Dr. Hehmeyer for nutrition and weight-loss counseling. I had tried numerous ways of loosing weight: diet plans, workouts, meal plan food delivery, and even simple calorie counting only to fail every time. Dr. H’s approach with testing, in-depth personal assessments, and immense knowledge of nutritional supplements (actually anything nutrition related) has helped me understand my personal relationship with food and how what I eat affects my body specifically. I realized quickly this is more than some nutritional guidelines she had set out for me. This is a lifestyle change for better overall health, which will last longer than my short term goals I originally went into our first meeting with. I instantly began to see results once I began following my personal plan. My overall health stats have​ improved and the weight-loss was just a side affect of the lifestyle changes. My ability to focus, alertness, and overall energy have increased drastically. I now feel so much more comfortable around food and in social settings because she has given me the tools to be able to select what my body needs and how to nourish it, and be an “intuitive eater” rather than an “impulsive eater.” Dr. H’s enthusiasim, professionalism, compassion, and one-on-one support during this journey is what makes her different from all the other programs I’ve done before. Thank you for helping me make permanent and positive lifestyle changes, eating well no longer feels like a chore!

Dr. H brings a unique perspective and has a deep knowledge of nutrition (including supplement use). She truly wants the best for me and provides constant encouragement, while also ensuring I am holding myself accountable. Dr. H helped me to realize the blocking point was me... the way I spoke to myself, the way I spoke about food. I have learned to reframe my thinking which has allowed me to continue my success in achieving the goals I set for myself. 

This will be the last time I make these changes because I won't give myself a choice. Dr. H helped me figure out my "why," why I must make the changes I desperately was seeking. I continue to practice many of the tactics she has imparted and I continue to set myself up to win. Although I have lost weight, I have created healthy habits, and have improved lab work, the biggest result has been the shift in mindset. 

I never give up... and I never will.
