About Us

About iThrive Health & Wellness LLC

iThrive Health and Wellness was born out of a growing passion Melissa developed while learning about functional medicine and her desire to promote true HEALTHcare. Melissa has always been around herbs, essential oils, and homeopathy since she was a child so this has never been a foreign concept to her.  Her mother has battled many years with Lyme disease which originally failed treatment. After seeing how conventional medicine offered no solution to her mother she pursued the Chronic Infections and Biotoxin Illness (mold and many other causes) course through A4M taught primarily by Dr. Richard Shoemaker and Dr. Andrew Heyman to learn more in how to help heal her mother. Also during her time in primary care Melissa has come to realize what an underserved population those with symptomatic menopause, andropause, hypothyroidism, biotoxin exposure,  Lyme disease, migraine headaches and so many other common conditions truly are. Her desire is to bring back your health, energy, vitality, and overall wellbeing through careful evaluation and treating the underlying cause.
