Tracy saved my life!
I began suffering from the effects of Celiac disease 18 years ago. I had low thyroid, exhaustion, brain fog, anemia, bone loss, and weight gain My symptoms increased over time and became acute 3 years ago. My gut became very painful and I had alternating diarrhea and constipation. My weight ballooned. Depression and fatigue were chronic, despite medication. I saw several specialists and was diagnosed with IBS. I became more ill and could not function, lying in bed for weeks at a time. I began to exhibit symptoms that were Fibromyalgia-like. My balance and coordination were deteriorating. My PCP referred me to Mayo Clinic and they rejected me, saying they could do nothing more for me than had already been done (under the IBS diagnosis). Soon after, a friend of mine met Tracy, talked to her about her practice, and called me immediately!
Tracy and I began working together and on our first visit she recognized the seemingly unrelated symptoms and advised I do a Celiac Panel. All my markers were positive, I had the genes, and a biopsy confirmed the disease as well and established a baseline for how much tissue damage there was. Tracy helped me navigate my life-change, encouraged me, prayed for me, tested me for an array of nutritional deficiencies and created me my own nutritional healing regimen unique to me. Tracy literally saved my life! She worked so hard to help me figure out my various symptoms and to ease my discomfort. Within 3 months my symptom survey showed a 50% decrease. My gut is healing, I am in much less muscular and bone pain, I have been able to exercise again, to have hope, to be joy-filled. Tracy was a God-send for me!

Tracy Konoske is an eclectic clinician and uses a blend of natural, integrative, functional, and personalized medicine to help her patients feel their best. Tracy understands that there are 4 drivers of chronic disease: Toxins, Infections, Stress, and Diet. And it's often a combination of all 4 that lead to a chronic health condition, and thus it takes a treatment plan addressing each of the 4 to resolve and reclaim good health. Tracy has recovered from 2 "perfect storm" situations which had drastic effects on her health and led to multiple mystery illnesses and diagnosis including Lyme.
By reducing the burden of these triggers, Tracy is successfully resolving:
- Fatigue (anemia's, adrenals, thyroid-related, chronic fatigue syndrome, ME-CFS)
- Auto Immune Conditions (Hashimoto's, Lupus, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac)
- Mental Health Conditions (anxiety, depression, OCD, ADD/ADHD)
- Cognitive Dysfunction (trouble concentrating, forgetfulness, symptoms of early Alzheimer's)
- Digestive Disorders (low hydrochloric acid, "leaky gut", Candida Albicans, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth SIBO, IBS, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis)

If you've one or more of the above-mentioned conditions, or have been told you have Lyme or chronic Lyme, there's a good chance you are in the right place.
