About Us - The Team
Sarah Clark, Founder, Fab Fertile
When Sarah Clark was 28 years old, she received a diagnosis of premature ovarian failure (loss of function of the ovaries before age 40). At the time she has chronic yeast infections, acne on her previously clear skin, dandruff and a weird fungal rash on her chest. She didn’t realized until years later that these health conditions were connected to her fertility. She accepted the diagnosis and was fortunate to have both her children with donor eggs.
After her children were born her health began to suffer. She experienced chronic bladder infections, chronic sinus infections, the chronic yeast infections worsened, toenail infections, vertigo, seasonal allergies, allergies to multiple antibiotics and eczema. Years later she realized the root cause of her infertility was a food intolerance and later a gut infection. She did not discover this link until she was fully in menopause. Her message is one of HOPE. If you are still cycling naturally there are steps we can take with the tools of functional medicine.
She is a certified life coach with accreditation from the International Coaches Federation and a health coach with training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
She is the author of Fabulously Fertile – Supercharge your Fertility Naturally, Fabulously Fertile Cookbook and Fertility Preparation Program. She is super proud of her Signature Fertility Coaching Program, which includes functional lab testing, supports couples to make diet and lifestyle changes that dramatically improve the chances of a healthy pregnancy and baby!
Brandy Buskow, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner
Brandy’s health struggles started early on, as a child she struggled with chronic ear infections, chronic colds, and chronic tonsillitis. After having her tonsils and adenoids removed when she was 8 her symptoms seemed to improve for a short while but within a year or two she began a long-term struggle with digestive issues and weight gain. She was diagnosed with IBS when she was 16 and followed the standard advice of eating more fiber, exercising and worrying less.
In her early 20’s she started having severe anxiety and depression. She spent over a year trying several different medications but soon became frustrated by the side effects and with the help of her holistically minded grandmother weened herself off the medication with amino acids, and herbs. After seeing how amazing they worked she became passionate about learning anything and everything she could about holistic and alternative health. She went on the lose over 100lbs and managed her anxiety and IBS with diet, visualization, and exercise.
After a difficult pregnancy and birth of her third child, her health crashed and she began experiencing digestive issues again, extreme fatigue, body pain, panic attacks, and significant weight gain. She began researching again and was tested and diagnosed with celiac disease. Although giving up gluten helped some it didn’t address the panic attacks, body pain, and extreme fatigue. She started working with a Naturopath but didn’t see any results. Frustrated by the lack of results she embarked on a journey to educate and heal herself. Brandy is a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition practitioner, Certified Transformational Health Coach and level 1 EFT Practitioner.
She is passionate about sharing her knowledge with others. She provides nutritional support and guidance in the Couples Coaching Program. Learn more about her struggle with anxiety and how she used the tools of functional medicine to heal.
