Amber Satterfield was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Instead of living with the pain and discomfort of Crohn’s Disease and a cancer diagnosis, Amber sought out functional medicine and started down her path to healing. She fought tirelessly for her health, even when the odds were stacked against her. Several years later, she has not only overcome her illness but has also become a fierce advocate for others in similar situations. Her health journey has inspired her to help others through personalized, integrative nutrition coaching.
A Healing Journey That Led to Helping Others
Amber Satterfield spent the early years of her life struggling with pain and discomfort. In and out of the hospital, she failed to find a solution to her health issues. Through years of trial and error, Amber was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, an autoimmune condition. Even with the intervention of medicine, she still suffered from the discomfort accompanying her gut issues.
After years of searching for a solution, Amber found just the thing she needed to overcome her health issues and find relief: Functional medicine. After receiving mindful and holistic treatment, Amber’s eyes opened to the possibility of bringing relief to others through health counseling, functional medicine, and holistic healing. Amber knew she needed to take the information she learned through her journey to help others.
It wasn’t until the world shutdown during the Covid-19 pandemic that all the pieces fell into place. With the additional time and unsteadiness of work provided by the shutdown, Amber saw the opportunity amongst the obstacles. She became a certified health coach, attended The School of Applied Functional Medicine, and started Feel Good Nourishment to help those in need of relief from the pain and discomfort that comes with gut issues, inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.
Amber provides coaching and counseling through Feel Good Nourishment for those who want to feel their best by healing the gut and feeding the body right. Amber says that the best part of her job as a health advocate is “showing people that their bodies are a magnificent vessel that is intelligently reacting to the environments we live in.”
Holistic Health and Functional Medicine
As a holistic health advocate, Amber provides 1-on-1 support and health plans to help people heal in a natural and non-invasive way. Holistic medicine focuses on using natural substances to help improve gut health and minimize discomfort. Amber provides her clients with diet plans that prioritize natural nutrition that can heal the gut and improve overall health and well-being.
Feel Good Nourishment specializes in functional medicine to address the needs of Amber’s clients. Functional medicine focuses on the body’s different systems and how they work together to promote health and harmony. Amber works one on one with clients to target the systems of the body to improve gut health and heal in a non-invasive and natural way.
Running a Business Through a Pandemic
Amber has a passion for helping others. Just as impressive as her dedication to improving the health of her clients is the business acumen needed to start and sustain a business through a pandemic. Amber turned an obstacle into an opportunity after being furloughed from her job as an engineer to start her own business. The shift into digital communication and increased consciousness around health that accompanied the pandemic helped propel Feel Good Nutrition to success.
Amber’s dedication and passion for helping others have helped motivate her business through the difficult times over the last few years. Where other businesses fell short during the pandemic, Feel Good Nutrition thrived. With business smarts and a passion for her work, Amber has grown her client base and has provided health coaching to many suffering from illness and gut issues. Amber continues to grow her business and advocates for health education for all.
Finding Your Passion and Sharing It with the World
Amber’s journey has been full of ups and downs, but she has learned a valuable lesson along the way. For women looking to start their own business, she offers the following advice: “Find something that you are truly passionate about, that makes you feel alive and doesn’t feel like work.”
Amber believes that everyone has their own unique experiences and gifts that they can share with the world. The key to success is to look within and find that passion, then bravely step out and share it.
